Tips For Betting On NHL Northeast Division – Bruins Expected To Take Northeast Again In 2013; Canadiens Could Be Darkhorse Team

Posted by Don Melrose on 1/7/2013 6:22:05 PM

2012 was about the Boston Bruins and then everybody else in the Northeast division. Without much change to count on heading in to the lockout-shortened 2013 season, the Bruins are expected to remain on top. Boston is listed at +1,400 to win the Stanley Cup in 2013, which ranks them fourth behind the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, and Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference scheme. Considering the work that all three of the sports betting teams have to do against one another just to make it in competing in the Atlantic division, the Bruins could have their sights set on much more than just a Northeast division crown in 2013.

The Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres finished second and third in the Northeast division respectively a year ago, but according to the online sportsbook odds they will flip spots in 2013. The Sabres are +2,800 to win it all this season compared to the Senators at +4,000, as Buffalo was and still is the better team on paper, even if all of its talent wasn’t able to gel a year ago. It’s easy to forget that the Sabres have one of the league’s premier goaltenders in Ryan Miller and a strong young defense core, both of which will help them compete for a playoff spot in 2013. It is hard to project what to make of Ottawa after they overachieved a year ago, and the experts expect them to take a step back this coming year.

The Monreal Canadiens finished fourth in the Northeast division a year ago, and are listed with the Toronto Maple Leafs at +4,000 to win the Stanley Cup this season. Only three teams are considered to have a longer short at the Stanley Cup than the Habs and Leafs, but one of these teams could be a sleeper in the Eastern Conference. While Toronto has failed to address its goaltending situation up until this point, the Canadiens have one of the league’s top young netminders in Carey Price, and a ton of young talent in front of him. PK Subban has emerged as a dynamic young defenseman along with Andrei Markov on the blue line, while the fans in Montreal are hoping this year’s first-round pick and scoring leader Alexander Galchenyuk will get his shot with the club right away. Brian Gionta, Eric Cole, and Max Pacioretty give the Canadiens some scoring potential up front, and it will be interesting to see if they can pull off an upset in a lockout-shortened online betting season.

Overall, the Northeast division is expected to be much better in 2013, with a lot of young talent on all five rosters. While the Bruins should be a lock to win the division, the Sabres and Canadiens are both capable of pulling off surprise runs with such a short schedule. Whether or not Buffalo or Montreal have what it takes to get in could depend a lot on how they start out of the gate, and it wouldn’t be a surprise at all if both challenge for playoff spots ahead of the Senators and Maple Leafs.
