The Montreal Canadiens lay claim to the second most championships, second only to the New York Yankees, in professional sports with 24. It must make the current 21-year drought an even tougher pill to swallow. Habs fans eat, breath and sleep all things Canadiens, but are visibly frustrated with recent ongoings in Montreal. The team is in disarray, especially when Carey Price is injured. Devoid of any real all-star presence up front, combined with a tendency of allowing goals on seemingly innocouus plays, the Habs have a number of issues to solve before returning to the glory days of yesteryear.
Max Pacioretty is the team’s leading goal scorer and point getter, a worrying fact in its own right. Surprisingly, though, the Habs still manage to score goals. Not enough to compensate for their lackluster defense, however. Montreal has had a dismal time of it in their own end, often relying on Carey Price to bail them out. Unfortunately, Price has been plagued with injury problems and had to miss the lion’s share of the 2015-16 regular season.

How To Make Money Betting On Montreal Canadiens
We recommend veering away from betting on the Canadiens if they’re playing away from home. Losing is not a sure thing but getting a result for the Habs away from the Molson Center has been a difficult undertaking in recent campaigns.
When it comes to over/under wagers, the Canadiens are more likely to hit the over, mostly due to their occasional inept defending. They don’t score a lot of goals but aren’t anemic enough on offense to completely avoid the over. Have a deeper look at future matchups and take a look at how previous encounters unfolded to ensure you’re making the best possible bets. Until they solve their defensive frailties, bolster a subpar attack and stop relying on Price in goal, there’s not much point in betting on the Habs for a futures bet.
