Projected NHL OVER/UNDER 2019-20 Season Point Totals for All 31 Teams

The dust has finally settled on what has been a crazy offseason for the NHL, along the 2019-20 season around the horizon, sportsbooks are getting ready for what is shaping up to be an exciting season around the ice by releasing OVER/UNDER point levels for several 31 clubs in the upcoming campaign. BetOnline has searched the Tampa Bay Lightning (108.5), Toronto Maple Leafs (101.5), Boston Bruins (100.5), Vegas Golden Knights (100.5) and Colorado Avalanche (98.5) since the teams with the best opportunities to post the highest point totals. It’s worth noting that the Bolts, Leafs and Bruins all reside in the demanding Atlantic Division — a scary sight for fans that the squads play at the Atlantic. On the flip side, the Ottawa Senators (68.5), Los Angeles Kings (73.5), Detroit Red Wings (75.5), Anaheim Ducks (79.5) and Buffalo Sabres (83.5) would be the likeliest teams to finish at the bottom of the standings. The Sens’ 64-point year in 2018-19 has been the worst in the league, but Ottawa didn’t possess its very own first-round pick due to a trade with Colorado to Matt Duchene in 2017. A couple of teams I love to go OVER their projected point totals would be the Chicago Blackhawks (90.5) and Florida Panthers (96.5) The biggest reason why I enjoy the OVER in both situations is goaltending. Chicago’s 84-point season in 2018-19 was underwhelming, but general manager Stan Bowman created a splash in free agency by signing netminder Robin Lehner. With Lehner in the fold to help shoulder the load 34-year-old Corey Crawford, the Blackhawks have been in a prime spot to improve on their 36-34-12 document from a year ago. In the end, Lehner had been a Vezina Trophy finalist thanks to a 25-13-5 record,??2.13 goals-against typical and .930 save percentage in his one season with the New York Islanders. Florida boasted one of the worst goaltending tandems in the league this past year, but due to the retirement of Roberto Luongo and the commerce of James Reimer into the Carolina Hurricanes, the Panthers will have a brand new look in net after signing celebrity goalie Sergei Bobrovsky into some seven-year, $70-million deal. With a franchise netminder in between the pipes, an offense that scored the ninth-most targets in 2018-19 (264) and also one of the best coaches in the NHL at Joel Quenneville in his very first year on the seat, I expect the Panthers for a playoff team and soar over their 96.5-point projection.
