Last year the Tampa Bay Lightning lit up the NHL regular season like a runaway freight train. In fact, the Bolts resembled Secretariat at the Belmont with a whopping 128 regular season points to win the Presidents Trophy going away. Once again, the Lighting will be one of the top favorites for the most points in the 2019-20 NHL regular season. Other popular picks for success are the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vegas Golden Knights, St. Louis Blues, and Boston Bruins. On the other end of the spectrum the Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings and Ottawa Senators are tabbed to be facing miserable seasons. Let’s take a look at the top picks for Futures NHL Odds points in the 2019-20 NHL season.
2019-20 NHL Teams Total Points Futures Odds at BookMaker.eu
Tampa Bay Lightning 108.5 Points (-115 over/-105 under)
This is an interesting number in that its quite unlikely the Bolts can top their 128 points of last season and perhaps would not even want too. After all they flopped in the first round of the playoffs to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Still, no team is as deep, complete, or talented.
Toronto Maple Leafs 101.5 Points (-110 over/-110 under)
Much like college football’s Michigan Wolverines the Toronto Maple Leafs are always hyped early for what is touted to be an inevitable great season. To their credit the Leafs did amass 100 points last year and had the Boston Bruins on the ropes in the playoffs before blowing a 3-2 series lead. With Mitch Marner back in the fold the Leafs are ready to roll.
Vegas Golden Knights 101.5 Points (-105 over/-115 under)
Vegas is the most successful expansion team of any major sport in the modern era and is coming off a 93-point season. However, the playoffs were a disaster for the Golden Knights as they blew a 3-2 series lead to the San Jose Sharks and a 3-0 third period lead in game seven of that series. Vegas will be good, that’s for sure, but this number may be too optimistic and based on strong flow of hometown cash.
St. Louis Blues 96.5 Points (-115 over/-105 under)
The surprise and defending Stanley Cup champions face the ultimate irony this year. The Blues are likely to be a better team than the one that totaled 99 points last year but that may not be reflected in the standings. Of great concern is that the Cup champs will not ambush anyone this year. Opponents will be ready for The Note.
Boston Bruins 101.5 Points (-110 over/-110 under)
The defending Eastern Conference champions overcame a slow start to end up with 107 points and made it all the way to game seven of the Stanley Cup Final where the faltered against the Blues. While the Bruins have a solid core, their weaknesses were exposed by St. Louis. This is a very good but not great team that could prove to be overlays more often than not.
Florida Panthers 96.5 Points (-110 over/-110 under)
This one looks like a reach. The public is all over the Panthers because of the hiring of former Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship coach Joel Quenneville and former Columbus Blue Jackets number one goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. Certainly, the Cats should be improved but they are going to need to gel. Just as concerning is the bad history that this team is trying to overcome.
2019-20 NHL Total Team Points Picks
With Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner the Leafs will be one of the elite teams in the NHL. Head coach Mike Babcock remains one of the best in the game and will put a top contender on the ice. Meanwhile the Florida Panthers are not likely to be ready for prime time and may need a year before they are truly set to contend and bring value with NHL Odds.
