Bet on Hockey: Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Bet on hockey action Tuesday features one of the best against one of the worst in eastern conference hockey betting action from Tampa Bay.

Bet on hockey fans have seen surprising value from Tampa Bay while Montreal has a great record but has not brought good hockey betting value with it.  The Montreal Canadiens have been one of the most consistent teams that you can bet on hockey with.

The problem is that everyone in hockey betting wants a piece of Montreal, which drives their price on the hockey betting board to being extremely expensive with the net result being that a hockey betting loss on Montreal is an incredibly expensive set back that takes quite a while to recover from.

Montreal had an overall bet on hockey record of a strong 27-13-2-4 straight up but was just 16-30 against the hockey gambling lines.  Entering the all star break Montreal may have been distracted as the host team as they suffered a bit of a bet on hockey slump with three losses in their final five games before the break.

Montreal has shown solid bet on hockey balance on both ends of the ice as they ranked 8th overall on offense while ranking 7th overall on defense.  Andrei Markov has had a great bet on hockey season as he led Montreal in scoring with 37 points.  Goaltender Carey Price has been excellent and has posted 16 wins and a 2.35 goals against average.

Montreal's power play has been surprisingly weak as it ranked 23rd while their penalty killing has been solid and ranked 8th overall in the league.  The Canadiens have been something of an under team with a mark of 20 overs in 46 games.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have had a train wreck of a bet on hockey season as they fired coach Barry Melrose one month into the season after hiring him during the summer.

As incredible as it may sound, however, the Lightning have actually been a decent bet on hockey value as despite a straight up record of  16-21-3-7 they were 24-23 against the hockey gambling lines.  From January 9 through January 21 the Lightning went on a nice bet on hockey run in which they got the cash in 5 out of 7 games.
