NHL Bet of the Week for March 16, 2023
This week’s NHL lock is the over 7 in the Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens game. This article will explain why you should take over and make yourself some money.
The Florida Panthers have one of the fastest pace of play styles in the NHL. They pound shots on the net and their leading scorer, Matthew Thacuck, leads in the NHL in points since the calendar year started.
They also try to push the puck a lot leading to 2 on 1 and 3 on 2 for the other team often keeping them in the game allowing for higher scoring games, thus why you should bet the over. The Panthers also are one of the teams will the most new defensive pairing this year allowing for miscommunications on the back end.
The Panthers have also had shaky goaltending on the year regardless of who’s in net. The up and down pace combined with the amount of shots the Panthers take is part of the reason this is the bet of the week in the NHL.
The Montreal Canadiens are having a down year and are already out of the playoff race. This means the players are playing for pride and new contracts. The more points they have at the end of the season means the more the players will get paid for their next contract.
The Canadiens also have players with a lot of skill and youth. This means the younger guys are still trying to prove themselves and have more in their legs as the season comes to an end.
When you consider that the Canadiens also have been having issues with goaltending ever since Carey Price hasn’t been in net, the over seems like an even better bet. Both teams with shaky goaltending usually means good things for the over.
The Florida Panthers have scored over 4 goals in eight of their last 11 games. When you consider that 4 goals for them usually means the other team is in the game as well a 4-3 or 4-4 game ending into the last 3 minutes spells good for the over.
If it is 4-3 or 4-4, an empty net goal, or overtime goal means the over will hit and you can cash your ticket to make some extra money for March Madness this weekend.
Overall, the combination of everything stated above is why you should bet the over and make some money for yourself. The Panthers each of the last two seasons have been over machines and this game shouldn’t becanadians
