    NHL Best Bets - March 18, 2017

    NHL Best Bets - March 18, 2017

    Montreal @ Ottawa NHL Preview

    My Team's Next MatchOttawa Senators

    Chances are one of these two teams are going to end up with the 2nd seed in the East when they win the Atlantic division, but which team it's going to end up being is anyone's choice right now. Montreal leads the Senators by a single point, but they've also played one more game then the Senators have so a lot can happen over these final few weeks of the season. 

    Ottawa may be 2-0 SU vs. Montreal this year but they haven't met since late-November and both sides are much different programs now. But Ottawa has also lost two straight entering tonight (both by 2-1 scores) as their offence has abandoned them somewhat and that's not what you want when Carey Price - the best goalie in the world - comes into town. 

    Losing a head-to-head tiebreaker vs Ottawa should they end up tied would be tough to swallow for the Habs, meaning that tonight's game is very important from their perspective. With tonight's game being the first leg of a home-and-home, grabbing the W tonight and then looking for the sweep at home in Montreal tomorrow would be huge for the Canadiens. After all, they are on a 7-2 SU run overall, 6-1 SU in their last seven on the road, and 5-0 SU when playing a team that scored two goals or less last time out.


    Best NHL Bets Tonight | March 18, 2017

    The rest of Saturday's NHL betting board is loaded with some quality games as teams all over the league look to grab two critical points in the standings. Also, for the first time in a while, we don't have a litany of teams laying -200 or higher, meaning there should be some highly entertaining and close games with a few underdogs having quite a bit of value. Here are some other NHL wagers for this evening that bettors should strongly consider adding to their card. 

    • Chicago/Toronto Over 5.5 (-135) - These two teams played a 5-4 game in their first meeting and with all the offensive talent on the ice, another game with 9+ goals is highly likely. After both teams tightened things up defensively in winning their last contests, look for a wide open style of play and plenty of goals to be scored. 
    • Nashville Predators ML (-125) - The Preds have won three in a row, and with a 4-1 SU run going against teams from the East, they get their revenge for losing to Carolina earlier this season.  
    • Anaheim Ducks ML (+145) - The Ducks and Sharks always get after one another and tonight should be no different. It's the 5th and final meeting of the regular season between the two and with the season series tied up at two apiece, grabbing the value with the underdog here is the way to go.
