Projected NHL OVER/UNDER 2019-20 Season Point Totals for All 31 Teams
The dust has finally settled on whats been a crazy offseason for the NHL, also the 2019-20 year around the horizon, sportsbooks are getting ready for whats shaping up to be another exciting year around the ice by releasing OVER/UNDER stage levels for all 31 clubs at the approaching campaign.
BetOnline has searched the Tampa Bay Lightning (108.5), Toronto Maple Leafs (101.5), Boston Bruins (100.5), Vegas Golden Knights (100.5) and Colorado Avalanche (98.5) as the teams with the best opportunities to post the highest point totals. It is well worth noting that Leafs, the Bolts and Bruins all live in the Atlantic Division — a sight.
On the reverse side, the Ottawa Senators (68.5), Los Angeles Kings (73.5), Detroit Red Wings (75.5), Anaheim Ducks (79.5) and Buffalo Sabres (83.5) will be the likeliest teams to complete at the base of the standings. The Sens 64-point year in 2018-19 was the worst in the group, but Ottawa did not have its very own pick because of a trade with Colorado.
A couple of teams I like to go OVER their projected point totals are the Chicago Blackhawks (90.5) and Florida Panthers (96.5) The greatest reason why I like the OVER in the two situations is goaltending. The 84-point year in 2018-19 of chicago was underwhelming, but overall manager Stan Bowman made a splash in free agency by signing netminder Robin Lehner.
With Lehner from the fold to help shoulder the load the Blackhawks are in a spot that is prime to improve from one year ago in their document that is 36-34-12. After all, Lehner had been a Vezina Trophy finalist due to a 25-13-5 record,??2.13 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in his one season with the New York Islanders.
Florida boasted one of the worst goaltending tandems in the league this past year, but because of the fertility of Roberto Luongo and the trade of James Reimer into the Carolina Hurricanes, the Panthers have a fresh look in net after signing star goalie Sergei Bobrovsky into a seven-year, $70-million thing.
With a franchise netminder between the pipes, a crime that overlooks the ninth-most goals in 2018-19 (264) and also one of the best coaches in the NHL at Joel Quenneville in his very first year on the seat, I hope the Panthers for a playoff team and then soar over their 96.5-point projection.
