The hockey odds should make the Capitals a slight favorite as the Senators have struggled so far this hockey wagering season while Washington is considered a favorite to contend for Lord Stanley’s cup during the long marathon bet on hockey campaign to come.
Bet on hockey information shows that Washington sits atop the Southeast Division of the National Hockey League so far and that may continue. Ottawa, conversely, is at the bottom of the Northeast Division, which is considered one of the toughest by those who bet on hockey.
Those who bet on hockey think that Ottawa is in a rebuilding and transitional season and that they will often be underdogs on the hockey odds board this hockey wagering season.
Those who bet on hockey consider Washington an offensive powerhouse as the Capitals are averaging over three and a half goals per game, one of the top rankings in the hockey wagering statistical charts. Those who bet on hockey often think “over” when it comes to hockey wagering on Capitals games.
The hockey wagering line makers, however, will often compensate for this high scoring expectation of those who bet on hockey as the Capitals often have a higher than normal over under number posted on the bet on hockey boards.
Washington feeds into this hockey wagering image of an “over” team by those who bet on hockey by also having a slightly below average defense.
As you bet on hockey and study the hockey wagering odds you will quickly discover that Ottawa has a very different image than that of the Capitals as the Senators are a very average team offensively and without the fire power that lights up the bet on hockey scoreboards each night.
Further, Ottawa has suffered a recent streak in which they lost four out of five games. If you bet on hockey totals, however, you would want to take note of Ottawa’s latest recent trend of four overs in six games, which fits right into the theory of those who bet on hockey that Washington is a good team to bet the hockey wagering overs on.
To bet on hockey road teams is often a better value that to bet on hockey home teams as the hockey wagering price is a better value and many who bet on hockey will only take good teams on the road to get that better hockey wagering bargain value.
As is the case in all sports betting, hockey odds come down to the best values.
