Is Depth The Key For Toronto Maple Leafs?

This season’s success for the Maple Leafs will depend on the team’s ability to have equal four lines which can hold their own against the teams with shorter odds to win the Stanley Cup. With the season reaching the business end, the depth of the Maple Leafs is being stretched to the limit, but why is this? The Maple Leafs remain one of the favourites within many NHL betting predictions, although you would be hard-pressed to find any bookmaker offering them as the favourites for the Stanley Cup. Due to the problems with their depth. Nazem Kadri The Maple...

French Open 2019 Betting Tips: Nadal To Reign On Clay Again?

Betting Special: What Can Spurs Achieve This Season?

It has been an unusual season for Tottenham Hotspur thus far, with many flashes of brilliance but also damaging defeats and poor performances. For every game where they turned on the style like in their 3-0 home win over Borussia Dortmund, there has been an underwhelming defeat such as the one away at Burnley. Spurs were in a great position to challenge for the Premier League title at that point, with only a five-point gap between themselves and the league leaders. As soon as they got within inches of challenging there was a knockback that the side couldn’t recover from. The fact that this has happened twice only fuels more confusion from the fans’. Back in January, they could smell the top spot, but a shock home defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers pushed the club back to higher prices in the betting for the title. Granted, some fans would argue that they were never in the title race, but the league table often pointed to the fact that they were right in contention for the top prize. They are no longer in with a chance of winning the Premier League, or any domestic trophy for that matter as some bookmakers now rank them as having the same chance as Manchester United of winning the league title. However, what could the club achieve this season to keep the fans pleased with...

Stanley Cup Betting Tips: Can Anyone Stop Tampa Bay?

The NHL is entering the critical stage of the season; with playoff spaces being tied up. But who will take the initiative once the knockout games begin, and are the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team that everyone should fear? Or could the winners come in a surprise package in the form of either the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Toronto Maple Leafs? Tampa Bay Lightning (Currently 23/20 with Paddy Power) When it comes to contenders for the Stanley Cup, the Lightning is on another level to their rivals. There’s no team with a better pool of talent between offence and defence than the Lightning. Nikita Kurcherov is leading the NHL in terms of points with 88 points in just 57 games. While Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos have both scored at least 30 goals. Behind the star men, the Lightning has assembled a near-perfect depth throughout their team. Defensively, their top-six is excellent. Ryan McDonagh, Victor Hedman, and Anton Stralman are correctly placed in the roles that are tailor-made for them. Tampa Bay is as good away from home as they are at home. They’re entirely stacked in crucial positions and could still add numbers to their roster. It’s their cup to lose. Toronto Maple Leafs (Currently 12/1 with Paddy Power) It’s been an incredibly fun season for Toronto, as off-season star signing John Tavares has masterfully fitted alongside Auston...
