NHL Winter Classic Betting: Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings: Looking for a win in Classic

As the Winter Classic comes to Michigan, the Red Wings look to grab a win in front of some 100,000 people at one of the most storied stadiums in all of College Football. The Red Wings are in fourth place in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference with 45 points. They have adjusted pretty well to life in the Eastern Conference and will look to put some distance between them and division foe Toronto today.

Toronto Maple Leafs: First Canadian team in the Classic

Toronto is the first team from Canada to take part in the Winter Classic, which is why the Maple Leafs will do everything in their power to win this game. They too have 45 points and are tied with the Red Wings in the Atlantic Division standings entering this contest. A win for Toronto will help them leapfrog Detroit in the standings and provide a nice confidence booster to start the 2014 segment of the NHL schedule.

Oddsmakers over at the online sportsbook of Bovada.lv have the Red Wings as -1.5 (+225) favorites to win this year’s Winter Classic. This will not be a pushover of a game and should be one of the best Winter Classics to date. We are going to bet 15 percent of our bankroll on the Red Wings with the spread to grab the win in the football stadium for the Michigan Wolverines.
