Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

There are 4 teams who have 40/1, 2.4% odds to win the Stanley Cup. Their 0.1% chance is #21 in the league which is not high enough to be a good bet. In simulations, they win the West 0.6% of the time and are not a good value at 20/1, 4.8%. The Canucks are averaging 83.4 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 88.5. At +180 the Canucks are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 24.2% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 12/1, 7.7%. They win the division in 1.2% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #11 in the West.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 41% of their games last season so their 35-36-11 met expectations. Against the money line they turned a +65 profit. They broke even against the money line. They were solid against the puck line going 49-33 for (+63 profit). More of their games came in under (47) than went over (31). Their next game vs the Oilers should be close. The Canucks are winning 49 percent of computer simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be slightly better. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.35 (includes playoff games) which ranks #22 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #23. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #20 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #24 in home games.
