Plenty of Value on Atlantic Odds Board

Tampa Bay Lightning Florida Panthers NHL

With the exception of the Metropolitan, there is value to be had betting NHL division futures and the tightly contested Atlantic Division is leading the charge.

The Florida Panthers lead the group with 80 points as of Wednesday morning and are currently tabbed as +130 favorites to win division at online shop Bovada.

The Panthers used a 12-game winning streak that bridged December and January to vault up the standings. Since that streak, however, the Panthers have gone just 10-11 in 21 games and their lead has been sliced to just two points.

Behind them are the Tampa Bay Lightning who used a current seven-game winning streak of their own to climb back into the hunt. As of Wednesday, the Bolts sit at +150 at Bovada to win the division. The Lightning will look to extend that winning streak to eight games when they visit the Ottawa Senators Thursday evening.

Not to be overlooked are a pair of Original Six clubs that come in at +600 and are within striking of the Panthers. The Boston Bruins currently have 76 points while the Detroit Red Wings have 75. The latter puts a three-game winning streak on the line against the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night while the former will look to put together a multiple-game streak when they host the Hawks Thursday.

According to Hockey-Reference.com, the panthers have a 52.3 percent chance of winning the division while the Lightning have a 34.5 percent shot of winning the crown. The Bruins have a 7.2 percent chance while the Red Wings come in at six percent.

Here is a look at what Bovada has on their Atlantic Division futures board:
