Hockey Bet: Montreal Canadiens vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Hockey bet action on Montreal should be popular as the “Flying Frenchman” travel to Columbus to meet the struggling Blue Jackets on Friday.

Hockey betting has been quite successful on Montreal the past couple of years and that could be the case again in 2008-2009.  Hockey bet gamblers taking the Montreal Canadiens are feeling pretty good about hockey betting so far this season as the Habs are beating the hockey lines like a rented mule.

Montreal has been riding at or near the top of the National Hockey League’s Northeast Division and is looking like a team that has the chance to dominate the hockey betting season.  To make a hockey bet on Montreal, however, one must consider that the hockey lines will be adjusted and inflated to meet the public demand on the Habs.

A hockey bet on Columbus as not gone nearly as well at the start of the hockey betting season as the Blue Jackets continue to flounder with a losing record and at the basement of both the National Hockey League Central Division as well as the hockey betting profit margins.

They will be quite an underdog to Montreal on the hockey betting lines as those wanting a hockey bet can find an extra special bargain price on the home standing Blue Jackets.  When you make a hockey bet on Montreal you get the benefits of having super left wing Alex Tanguay on your side.

Tanguay is the Habs’ leading scorer and a major reason why a hockey bet on Montreal has been a great idea this far.  The goaltending duo of Carey Price and Jaroslav Halak is another reason why a hockey bet on Montreal has been as good as gold.  Montreal is well above the league norm with 3.6 goals per game on offense while allowing a miserly 2.2 goals per game.

With such dominance in all aspects of the game, a hockey bet on Montreal makes a lot of sense to many gamblers unafraid of laying odds.  Defense has been the major reason why a hockey bet on Columbus has not quite worked out so far in the season.

The Blue Jackets are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are below the league average on both offense and defense making them an underdog for those looking to make a hockey bet most of the time.
