NHL Hockey Online Betting – Maple Leafs, Oilers Look To Win On Home Ice Monday

Posted by Don Melrose on 10/14/2011 7:45:24 PM
For a handful of NHL teams, this year is about redemptions and while for some it will be centered around bouncing back from tough performances last season, another will look to make it count after 15 years away from the NHL. Here is a look at three key betting matchups for early next week.

Colorado Avalanche @ Toronto Maple Leafs
Monday, 7:00 PM ET

While the Maple Leafs missed the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year since the lockout last season, Colorado bottomed out and finished last in the Western conference. Both teams figure to be better in 2011-12, with Toronto projected to finally end their playoff drought in one of the biggest hockey markets in the world. In order for the Maple Leafs to do that they simply need to win these games against inferior opponents, something that they weren’t always able to do a year ago. The Avalanche have started strong but are an inexperienced group that isn’t very deep at either end of the ice. Either former Toronto netminder JS Giguere or Semyon Varlamov will get the call in goal for Colorado, and with James Reimer at the other end this shouldn’t be a high scoring game. The Maple Leafs played their first game in seven days on Saturday, so they should be fresh and ready to compete at home two nights later, while the Avalanche wrap up an early five-game road trip.

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Winnipeg Jets
Monday, 8:30 PM ET

The Jets could see both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in the lineup for Pittsburgh on Monday depending on how quickly the captain progresses through practice, and that won’t make things any easier on them as they look for their first home win in 15 years. The fans in Winnipeg know that they have a young team that is rebuilding, and they appear ready to give them some time with a standing ovation to welcome the team back following a 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in their home opener. Pittsburgh has managed to win games without both Crosby and Malkin in the lineup, but if they get both back they should again rank as one of the toughest sports betting teams to beat in the Eastern conference.

Nashville Predators @ Edmonton Oilers
Monday, 9:30 PM ET

The Oilers played much better at their own end through their first two games this season, and will need to continue to play that kind of defense if they are going to have any kind of success, including in a visit from the Predators. Nashville continues to find ways to win with one of the best head coaches in the league in Barry Trotz and one of the best nteminders in Pekka Rinne, so goals should be hard to come by for a young Edmonton team on Monday. Rookie first overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and former first overall pick Taylor Hall seem to have found some chemistry on the team’s top scoring line, but it could still be some time before they produce to their sports betting bonus potential.
