NHL Atlantic Winners Betting Tips:

Well as is common knowledge The Pittsburgh Penguins are the team to beat in the Atlantic and at odds that are better than even are a great value bet.
But with this being the strongest Division in the NHL the Penguins will have some competition and anything could happen.

The New York Rangers are a really good team and on top of all te offensive and defensive talent have arguably the best goalie on the planet in Henrik Lundqvist. The Rangers will defiantly challenge for top spot in the Atlantic and with odds that pay better than the Penguins, betting on the Rangers to win the Atlantic would be considered a safe bet.

Although off to a rocky start the Philadelphia Flyers are also a team that has all the right pieces to challenge for 1st place in the Atlantic. This team can play virtually all styles of hockey: They can play and excel at high scoring games and they are probably the best team in the league if the game turns into a physical contest.

Will this be Martin Brodeurs last year? Only he knows for sure but GM Lou Lamoriello knows how to put together a team. The New Jersey Devils will always be a team to fear and with the risk of losing the face of the franchise they will give it their all this year.

The third team to call the state of New York home, the New York Islanders are third on the totem pole behind the Rangers and Sabres for immediate success. With an abundance of talented youth and some experienced vets in the line up, this team could really benefit from a lockout shortened season.

BREAKING NEWS: The Pittsburgh Penguins are a really good hockey team and will win the Atlantic Division

They have to much talent and depth at each and every position to not win. And with Sidney Crosby being in the best shape of his life, that should strike fear in opponents not just in the Atlantic but around the league.

And with the odds of the Pittsburgh Penguins winning the Atlantic Division being an incredible +125 at 5dimes head over and take advantage before they change and drop it down to -250 where it should be
