Bet on Canadiens if price is right

By Andy MacNeil  ( 


Despite a strong showing in the first period, the Montreal Canadiens fell 4-1 to the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup semifinal series. Bettors who couldn’t resist betting on the Canadiens to win the series are now holding tickets that aren’t worth as much as they should be given that the Habs now carry an adjusted series price as high as + 650 at shops like DraftKings and William Hill and as low as + 500 and + 550 at others. Bettors should absolutely pass on betting the Canadiens to win the series at + 550 or worse when a shop like Circa Sports is offering + 750. The best series price before the start of the series was around + 400. Betting the Canadiens to win the series now can be a good bet or a bad one, depending on the price you pay.
