Four NHL goalies making under bettors happy

Every NHL bettor knows that evaluating the starting goaltenders in any given matchup is a key part of the handicapping process.

Here’s a look at four goalies bettors didn’t expect to be good under plays early in the season:

Roberto Luongo (1-5-1 O/U)

Roberto Luongo has silenced his critics with a hot start and is forcing head coach Alain Vigneault to reconsider him as the team’s main option in goal. Luongo is off to a 4-0-3 start and has an impressive 1.63 GAA and a sparkling .934 save percentage.

Craig Anderson (3-10 O/U)

Anderson has been outstanding for the Senators, posting a 7-4 record and a league-best .948 save percentage. Ottawa has struggled to score since losing Jason Spezza (back) and Erik Karlsson (Achilles) to long-term injuries and should continue to be a good under play even if Anderson comes back to reality in the weeks to come.

Viktor Fasth (2-6-1 O/U)

Fasth has been a savior early in the season for the Ducks, stepping up huge in the absence of Jonas Hiller (groin). The 30-year-old rookie has a perfect 8-0 record with a 1.78 GAA and .933 save percentage in nine appearances. With Hiller on the mend, a goalie controversy is brewing in Anaheim.

Corey Crawford (2-8 O/U)

Crawford is off to a blistering 7-0-3 start with a 1.65 GAA and .935 save percentage in 10 games. The 28-year-old has been out for Chicago’s past two games with an upper-body injury, but he should be back in between the pipes soon and is considered day-to-day.

All stats prior to action Sunday, February 17.
