Tips For Betting On Canadiens Sabres – Buffalo Cannot Bring Home a Win

Montreal Canadiens @ Buffalo Sabres – Thursday February 7, 2013 7:00PM EST

The betting sites are still trying to wrap their heads around this shortened NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens could not buy a win last year and now Montreal is one of the top teams in the league. Two of the reasons why Montreal has been able to win more often this season are that it got bigger on defense and goaltender Carey Price is playing extremely well. Canadiens’ fans will want to be careful before they get too excited. Carey Price has a history of fast starts that usually wind up ending in disaster. But with the shortened season, Price could very well be a Vezina Trophy candidate.

For the Buffalo Sabres, it is business as usual. The sports betting experts watched as the Sabres jumped out to a 2-0-0 start and then the wheels on the bus fell right off. Goaltender Ryan Miller is not playing well and the only Sabres scoring goals are Thomas Vanek and captain Jason Pominville. The rest of the team is playing inconsistent defense and weak offense. About the only thing the Sabres is able to do right is fight, and that is thanks to new arrivals John Scott and Steve Ott.

Why the Canadiens Will Win

The online sports book experts liked how the Canadiens was able to get bigger without sacrificing team speed. Montreal always had plenty of speed upfront and now that speed is being backed up with a strong defensive presence. When you combine that with the play of Carey Price, then you get an idea as to why Montreal is one of the top teams in the league. The Canadiens is proving to be too fast for the Sabres as the first meeting between these two teams showed last week. All Montreal needs to do is keep skating and it will easily be able to frustrate a confused and disorganized Sabres’ team.

Why the Sabres Will Win

When the Buffalo Sabres decide to play to its potential and actually execute a game plan, this team is extremely effective. The problem with the Sabres is that it will usually only play 10 minutes out of a 60-minute game. The rest of the game is spent struggling to get the puck out of its own end and watching the other team skate around. While Ryan Miller has struggled at times this season, he has also been brilliant. If the Sabres decide to play a complete game, it can beat just about anyone.

The Bottom Line

There needs to be changes in Buffalo, but those changes are not coming. General manager Darcy Regier just signed a new contract and there is talk that head coach Lindy Ruff’s contract could be extended as well. The Sabres keep putting the same product on the ice and expecting different results. The problem is, the song always remains the same with Buffalo.

Pick: Montreal Canadiens
