You want to avoid betting on any Senators' future bets. They have never won a Stanley Cup and that stat is not about to change in the near future. The Sens are a talented squad that can compete any night, but that doesn't translate into the team from the capital being Stanley Cup threats. Erik Karlsson is one of the best defensemen in the NHL but invariably needs the kind of support the Sens can't offer. This team is definitely good enough to make the playoffs on a consistent basis, but making it deep into the postseason is a different story entirely.

Ottawa Senators Betting Tips
The Senators play consistently well regardless of location. It doesn't matter if this team is at home or on the road as their solid results are indicative of. That means you'll have to dig deeper into the analytics to find appropriate betting opportunities.
They don't score a lot of goals and are a pretty tight defensive unit, so, on the surface, under bets look like a good option. However, you'll want to investigate further by looking at advanced stats like their Corsi Ratings and Adjusted Efficiency Margin.
The team's results are buoyed by Erik Karlsson's unerring, continuously brilliant play. He never has a night off and is deserving of his praise as one of the NHL's best defenseman. Anything is possible for the Sens as long as they have this Swede in the lineup.
As usual, it's best to take a look at the stats associated with individual matchups. Find out how the Sens are playing in the previous 10 games overall, and how they usually fare against their current opposition. Is it an Atlantic Division game, where the intensity trumps usual analytics and is there any injury concerns to be aware of? All of these questions need to be answered each and every game that you intend on betting for, or against, the Sens.
