Betting on Freddie Andersen To Win The Vezina

Sep 9, 2022

The NHL season kicks off in just over a month, and now is the best time to get great odds on future bets. Gamblers may consider placing some money on a former Leaf to the Vezina.

While Sifting through the goalies and their odds of winning the Vezina award, you have guys like last year’s winner Igor Shesterkin and the best goalie in the NHL, Andrei Vasilevskiy. However, with +2000 odds to win the Vezina Trophy, Freddy Andersen is a solid bet.

The former Toronto Maple Leaf became a favourite of mine during the 2018-2019 season. Anderson was having a Vezina type of year, then the wheels fell off. Despite that collapse, he was able to get a fresh start in Carolina. Anderson had an excellent year last season with the Carolina Hurricanes. Andersen won 35 of his 52 starts. He posted a respectable 2.17 GAA and a .922 SV%

Andersen can and should be a critical part of Carolina’s bid to win a second Stanley Cup for the franchise. As a die-hard Leafs fan, it would be bitter-sweet to watch Anderson help lead Carolina to a cup. However, I’m very comfortable putting $20 on Andersen winning the Vezina. The risk is losing $20, and the reward is winning $420. If you ask me, it’s totally worth the risk.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
