Hockey Bet: Atlanta Thrashers vs. Montreal Canadiens

Hockey bet action on Tuesday features an Eastern Conference matchup as the Thrashers meet the Canadiens as hockey betting warms up the mid December chill.

Hockey bet value on the Atlanta Thrashers has been far better than you would expect at first glance.  Atlanta had a hockey betting record of 8-11-2-0 straight up but a much better 13-8 mark against the hockey gambling odds.  Atlanta had an away hockey bet record of 3-6-2.

The Thrashers had an over/under hockey bet mark of 13-8 over the total.  From November 16-November 26 Atlanta was on a hockey bet run of 4 losses against the spread in 5 games.  That followed a hockey bet run of 5 straight payoffs against the board.

Atlanta has, in fact, proved to be one of the most exciting teams in the league as they were on a hockey bet run in which they went over the total in 11 of 15 games.  The Thrashers were led in scoring by Bryan Little who had 20 points.  Slava Kozlov led Atlanta in goals with 12 while Todd White led in assists with 13.

While scoring has not been a problem for Atlanta, defense has been; which explains why so many of their games are going over the total.  None of their goaltenders has excelled and the Thrashers were ranked 29th overall on defense while ranking 12th on offense.  Atlanta had an 11th ranked power play but was 30th in penalty killing.

The Montreal Canadiens had a hockey bet record of 12-5-0-4 straight up but just 7-14 against the hockey gambling odds.  Montreal is one of the most popular teams in hockey betting and that often costs them value on the hockey bet board.  Montreal had a hockey bet home record of 5-2-0-2.

The Canadiens had an over/under hockey bet mark of 12-9 under the total.   Montreal was ranked 15th overall in offense while ranking a solid 7th overall on defense.  Saku Koivu was the Habs’ leading scorer with 18 points. Alex Tanguay led Montreal in goals with 8 while Andrei Markov led in assists with 14.

Carey Price has been stellar in goal with a goals against average of 2.34 and a save percentage of .923.  The Canadiens have been middle of the pack on special teams.
