Both of the first two teams in this bet on hockey playoffs series at Vancouver went over the total. That is somewhat surprising considering the under was 5-1-1 in the previous seven games. Chicago can score though and when they get it rolling they can put up some offensive numbers as gamblers who bet on hockey playoffs action realize. The Blackhawks were 4th in the league in scoring this season and they have carried that success into hockey betting playoffs action. Chicago was also good defensively but relying upon Nikolai Khabibulin is always a risky proposition for the Blackhawks. Chicago was a solid road team this year during the regular season so they are a threat in bet on hockey playoffs action to win on the road.
Vancouver was excellent at home this season so it is not a surprise to see them favored in bet on hockey playoffs odds at the sportsbook.
