Leafs make coaching change, Bet99 taking bets on next Leafs head coach

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ season is over after losing 4-3 in the first round of the playoffs to the Boston Bruins. The Leafs finished the season with 46 wins, 26 losses, and 102 points. Now, Bet99 has a special available that might interest a lot of Leafs fans and those looking to bet on the NHL. The sportsbook is taking bets for who will be the next head coach of the Leafs. On Thursday, Leafs general manager Brad Treliving announced that Sheldon Keefe will no longer be the head coach of the team. The Leafs are now looking for a new head coach.

“Today’s decision was difficult. Sheldon is an excellent coach and a great man; however, we determined a new voice is needed to help the team push through to reach our ultimate goal. We thank Sheldon for his hard work and dedication to the organization over the last nine years, and wish him and his family all the very best,” Treliving said. On Bet99, former St. Louis Blues head coach Craig Berube is the betting favourite to win the job by a tiny margin. Berube has +170 odds to be the next Leafs head coach. Former Los Angeles Kings head coach Todd McLellan is pretty much as close as you can get to the favourite when it comes to the odds. McLellan has +185 odds to win the job.

Berube and McLellan have a huge lead right now. The next closest candidates are former Minnesota Wild head coach Dean Evason and former New York Rangers head coach Gerard Gallant all the way at +750. Darryl Sutter has the longest odds at +6000.
