NHL Betting: Top 3 Hot Teams To Start The Season
By Covers.com

With the NHL season settling in, we've seen some pleasant surprises across the league.

Here is a look at three teams that have been cashing in for bettors and surprising fans and pundits with their exceptional play out of the gate.

Colorado Avalanche (5-0-0)

The Avs took a gamble and gave head coaching duties to legendary goalie Patrick Roy. Needless to say, that decision is paying off right out of the gate.

Colorado is playing with an attitude that harkens back to the playing days of their fiery coach.

The top line of Ryan O'Reilly, Matt Duchesne and Steve Downie has been as good as it gets, while goalie Semyon Varlamov leads the league in GAA (1.00) and save percentage (.970).

Any $100 bettor would be up $580.15 if they had wagered the Avs in each of their five games.

Calgary Flames (3-0-2)

Nobody gave them a chance. The Flames, mired in a drastic rebuild for the past couple of seasons, still have yet to lose a game in regulation.

The offense is being paced by 19-year-old rookie Sean Monahan - who scored the game winner against the New Jersey Devils on Oct. 11 and leads the squad with four goals.

The defense, however, leaves a lot to be desired and they still don't have a clear-cut number one goalie.

But for a team in a rebuild phase, this will do wonders for confidence.

Any $100 bettor would be up $189.15 if they had wagered the Flames in each of their five games.

San Jose Sharks (5-0-0)

Certainly less of a surprise than the above two teams, but a blistering start nonetheless.

The Sharks look like the best team in hockey and feature a rookie phenom that took YouTube by storm with a highlight reel goal.

Tomas Hertl - another 19-year-old rookie - leads the team with seven goals and eight points and has seemingly injected life into the club. His goal against the New York Rangers was a thing of beauty and he tallied his seventh Saturday night versus the Ottawa Senators.

The Sharks lead the league with 24 goals scored and have allowed just seven.

Any $100 bettor would be up $367.54 if they had wagered the Sharks in each of their five games.
