NHL Northwest Division Winners Betting Tips:
Which should come as no surprise the
Odds on favorite to win the Northwest Division is the Vancouver Canucks. Does that mean you should rush to 5Dimes.com and place your bet now? Well just wait a second and consider your options. They may be the favorites to win but will they? I don’t think so and I’ll tell you why. The odds are terrible! I mean they were an even bet at the beginning of the season now are a negative after only a couple games so what gives? The goalie situation still hasn’t been addressed and will need to be sometime soon.
I think that with the rest of the Northwest Division all being at Odds well over even that they should and will win the Northwest and they, not the Canucks should get your bet.
The Minnesota Wild have a great shot of winning the division, with two very capable goalies, a strong young defense and a stacked offensive unit this team has it all. Bringing in Zach Parise takes a lot of the pressure off of talented wingers the team already had like Devin Setoguchi and Dany Heatley.
The young gun Edmonton Oilers are already playing at mid-season speed thanks in part to the majority of the teams core playing together in the AHL with the Oklahoma City Barons. And they will continue to roll along to, at the very least, contend for the Northwest Division lead.
The Calgary Flames will surprise people and no team will benefit from a Short season more then the Flames. Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff lead a team full of veteran players who usually tire from the long drag of 82 games.
The Colorado Avalanche are a team who should sometime in the near future contend year after year for the Northwest Division title but will this year be the beginning?
With all this being said I think that the best bet to win the 2013Northwest Division is the Minnesota Wild followed closely by the Edmonton Oilers. Both teams offer substantially better value then the Vancouver Canucks to win and also a better shot at it. The Minnesota Wild will show that the incredible amounts of money spent during the off season was for good reason
