In Las Vegas, Betting on the Canadiens Offers Great Value
Don’t bet on teams. Bet on numbers.”
The Montreal Canadiens–Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL playoff semifinals offer what could very well be sports gambling’s best contrarian wager of the year.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to fade the (gambling) public’s obvious biases which clearly favor of the Golden Knights and jump on the real betting market value, which is on the underdog Canadiens.
The best-of-seven playoff series begins on Monday night.
I live in Las Vegas. So, I see this first-hand.
Here, Golden Knights fever is very real. For four years now, Las Vegas’ first-ever major league sports franchise has been the absolute darling of the city. When fans were allowed into the home arena at full capacity, every single game sold out. The Golden Knights rewarded this fan enthusiasm with a shocking and unprecedented appearance in the 2018 Stanley Cup finals in their inaugural Cinderella season. And, they’ve made it into the playoffs every year since. Many supporters believe 2021 is their year to win it all. Who would have thought Las Vegas would become a hotbed for ice hockey?
