Hockey bet handicappers continue to marvel at the underachieving Leafs while the Panthers have been a bet on hockey surprise. A hockey bet theory would seem to be that a franchise with as much money and fans as the Toronto Maple Leafs would be a strong bet on hockey commodity each season but that has not turned out to be the case.
With an international following and the most loyal fans in Canada the Leafs have what would seem to be many hockey bet advantages but that simply has not turned into hockey bet success. Toronto had an overall hockey bet record of 19-24-4-5 straight up and 25-27 against the hockey odds.
While there is long term optimism that new general manager Brian Burke will turn things around and do for the Leafs what he did for the Ducks when he made them into a Stanley Cup champion, immediate relief doesn’t seem to be near. Toronto is coming off a bad hockey bet stretch from January 13 through February 4 in which they went 3-7.
In that same span just 3 of those games went under the total. Toronto’s bet on hockey weakness is their pathetic defense which was ranked 30th in the league. Goaltender Vesa Toskala had a 3.34 goals against average and a save percentage of a poor .883. Their offense has been a somewhat more respectable 13th.
Niki Antropov and Jason Blake led the Leafs in scoring and were among the few hockey bet assets this year. The Florida Panthers, on the other hand, have been a pleasant hockey bet surprise and had an overall record of 25-18-2-6 straight up and 28-23 against the hockey odds.
Florida was in position for a playoff spot in the eastern conference. Florida’s main hockey bet strength has been their 6th ranked defense. Goaltenders Tomas Vokoun and Craig Anderson have been strong hockey bet assets. Stephen Weiss led Florida in scoring.
