An Early Look at Best Bets for the NHL Season

Although it feels like the Stanley Cup was just yesterday, the 2015-2016 season is right around the corner and it is time to make some picks for the upcoming year in regards to best picks to place bets on. The San Jose Sharks have consistently been one of the best teams in the Western Conference for the last nearly ten seasons, but they slipped up last year.

However, they have made a coaching switch after getting rid of Todd McClellan and bringing in Peter DeBoer, while also adding some great players to an already talented team. Despite the fact that they have had the pieces in order over the last few years, they were not able to win down the stretch, but they look to fare a lot better with a change up to their coaching staff.

It goes without saying that this year you should put your money on Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers, as they have picked up the biggest prospect in recent history. Combine this with bringing in a new coaching staff under Todd McClellan and you are looking at a team that is looking to get some redemption after some terrible seasons. There is always a learning curve, especially when a player with so much hype comes into the league at age eighteen, but there really isn’t a better solid pick than to bet on the Oilers and Connor McDavid individually.

Despite the rapid jump that they are going to absolutely make this season, a lot of sportscasters and analysts have not given them too much credit yet, but the stage is set for massive things to happen in Western Canada. It may take a few months to get things flowing properly, but by midway through the season they should be firing on all cylinders.
