Ever since NHL hockey returned to the nation’s capital for the 1992-93 season, Ottawa Senators betting lines have gotten plenty of attention from sports bettors. That’s especially true for all the hockey fans in Ottawa as they’ve watched their team make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007. Things haven’t been quite as smooth sailing for the Senators since then, but playing in a hockey-mad nation like Canada brings enormous pressure to provide a winner every year.
Getting defenceman Erik Karlsson in the 2008 was the first step in a lengthy rebuilding process for Ottawa, and management is hoping for a return to the dominant glory years of the early 2000′s for this franchise in the near future.

Betting On The Ottawa Senators
The Senators have always been a franchise that finds the bulk of their success through the scouting, drafting, and developmental parts of the game and that’s not likely to change. There is so much home-grown talent in Canada of top-tier NHL players that the Senators have built a blueprint to grow their team through the draft.
Grabbing Karlsson was the first step in the most recent rebuild for this team and many bettors capitalized early on when the young and hungry Senators were getting vastly undervalued by sportsbooks and bettors. Things have levelled off a bit since then with the Senators typically in the hunt for the playoffs until the final week each year and those “must-win” spots are ones NHL bettors look for every season.
What the future holds for this franchise is still up in the air, but knowing that sportsbooks aren’t shy to provide plenty of different betting options for Canadian-based hockey teams (moneylines, pucklines, totals, and season wins), there will be no shortage of Ottawa Senators betting lines in the coming years.
