Both teams are headed for the playoffs and they both have been successful teams to take this season in hockey betting.
Bet on hockey and you can choose to take Chicago in this game. The Blackhawks have won 7 of the last 10 against Phoenix in this series. What is strange about this series is that Phoenix has won the last two after losing the previous six. This has also been a low scoring series in hockey betting as six of the last eight have gone under including both games this season. Phoenix won 2-1 at Chicago last month and they won 3-1 at home back in November.
It is hard to go wrong when you bet on hockey taking either of these teams this NHL season. Chicago has been better at home than on the road but they still have winning record away from the United Center. Chicago is the fourth best offensive team in the league and the fifth best defensive team so they have a lot of things going for them. The only concern if you are taking Chicago as you bet on hockey is that they are not playing as well as they did earlier this season.
Phoenix is simply rolling right now. They are playing as well as any team in the league. They have taken over the #1 spot in the NHL on defense and they find ways to score. The Coyotes are actually one of the best stories in all of sports but they don’t get a lot of headlines because they are in Phoenix and because it is hockey. The Coyotes were expected to flop this season but they have been one of the best teams in the league. They have been excellent at home for those who bet on hockey. With their top-ranked defense they are also a team that tends to go under the total. Shane Doan leads the team in terms of points while Keith Yandle is the plus/minus leader. Radim Vrbata leads the team in shots while Ilya Brzgalov is having a great year in goal.
Both Chicago and Phoenix are talented teams so this should be a great game to watch and wager on in hockey betting.
