The Chicago Blackhawks have had a disappointing season thus far, currently sitting in dead last in the Central division with 55 points. Despite having such a terrible season, the Blackhawks could still make you money by betting the over in their games. 

One of the few things they have done well of late is put pucks in the back of the net – and allow pucks to be put in the back of their net. The Blackhawks are currently on a streak of hitting the over in 13-of-their-last-14 games. In those contests, the Blackhawks and their opponents are averaging 8.4 goals per game. 

The Blackhawks host the New Jersey Devils on Thursday and the total currently sits at 6.5. If the past is any indication of the future, there should be plenty of goals going up on the scoreboard at the United Center. 


While the Blackhawks haven't given fans much to cheer about this year, continuing to put money in the pockets of the fans who bet the over in their games is a nice consolation prize.
