When it comes to betting hockey, it is not uncommon for the visitor to be play a little close to the vest with the head coach wanting to make sure all defensive aspects are buttoned up for next foe.
Calgary (12-4-1 UNDER) – The Flames are flaming out when it comes time to finding the back of the net when away from home at 2.00 goals per contest.
Chicago (8-1-4 UNDER) – This one is easy to understand, offensive-minded Chicago is the poorest scoring team on the road in the league at a paltry 1.92 goals a game.
San Jose (8-2-4 UNDER) – Oddmakers have not had good read on Sharks with higher road totals of 5.5, with them 5-1 UNDER this season.
Columbus (7-2-3 UNDER) – The Blue Jackets defense has all but shrunk the actual goal cage in permitting NHL-best 2.00 GAG, mostly due to goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.
Anaheim (7-3-4 UNDER) – Average score of Ducks road game is 5.15, yet they have this lower totals record. Just seems to be circumstance or luck.
Boston (10-4-2 UNDER) – The Bruins are solid low scoring play because they are 2nd in fewest goals allowed away from Beantown (2.06) and only tally 2.19 GAG.
Minnesota (8-4-2 UNDER) – Sportsbooks have not had a good feel for the Wild home or away at 15-7-5 UNDER. Minnesota is 8th in scoring on the road and 4th in goals allowed.
