Hockey Bet: Montreal Canadiens vs. St. Louis Blues

Hockey bet action Sunday features an attractive inter-conference matchup as the Canadiens meet the Blues in an early season hockey betting handicap.

Hockey bet fans have mixed feelings on the Montreal Canadiens this hockey betting season as the Flying Frenchmen are 9-2-0-2 straight up but just 6-7 against the hockey lines.  Montreal has gone over the hockey bet total 7-6 to begin the season including 5-2 over the hockey bet total in road action.

Even after a great start the Canadiens could only rank in 3rd place in the NHL’s best division, the Northeast behind Buffalo and Boston.  Montreal was led at the start of the hockey bet season by Alex Tanguay who had 15 points, including 7 goals.

The Canadiens were led in goal by Carey Price who had 7 wins and a goals against average of 2.34 to start the hockey bet season.  Montreal began the hockey bet season ranked 2nd on offense and 8th on defense.  Their most impressive win of the young hockey bet season was a 4-3 win at home over Boston in October 15.

The St. Louis Blues have been a disappointment to hockey bet fans so far as they began the hockey betting season 5-8-0-1 straight up and 7-7 against the hockey lines.  The Blues were an excellent over team, however, as they went over the hockey bet odds in 11 of their first 14 games.

From October 30 through November 12 St. Louis was on a horrific streak in which they lost six consecutive games both straight up and against the hockey bet odds with the last five consecutive of those games having gone over the hockey bet totals.  St. Louis is ranked 13th on the bet hockey offensive charts while ranking 26th on defense.

The Blues have been strong on the power play but well below the bet hockey NHL average on penalty killing, a sign of a team that is not fundamentally strong.  The big problem so far has been goaltending and the Blues have had a virtual revolving door in the nets to try and solve the problem before the bet hockey season gets away from them.
