It is a strange scheduling spot for Chicago in hockey betting and that could play a factor in the outcome.
Bet on hockey favors Chicago at home and the situation may actually favor Chicago as well. The two teams will meet in Detroit next Wednesday and the Red Wings don’t have another game until then. Chicago on the other hand, has to play at home vs. San Jose on Tuesday. That should put the emphasis on the Blackhawks to win this bet on hockey matchup since they are going to be hard-pressed to win at Detroit next week in a back-to-back situation. What also helps Chicago in this bet on hockey matchup is that Detroit played at Dallas last night.
The only thing that might make you consider taking Detroit as you bet on hockey is the Red Wings recent success against Chicago. Detroit has won 7 of the last 10 games against Chicago in hockey betting. They already beat the Blackhawks earlier this season in Detroit by a score of 3-2 for those that bet on hockey. You may remember these two teams met in the playoffs a year ago in hockey betting and Detroit won in five games. This is a different Detroit team this season though and people looking to bet on hockey will notice that Chicago has the better record. The teams have split their last four meetings in Chicago. Three of those games did go over the bet on hockey total.
Detroit’s troubles this season have mainly been on the offensive side. They are below average in terms of goals scored as bet on hockey stats show. That is a major surprise considering the offensive talent this team has. Detroit has been pretty good on defense as they are in the Top 10 in fewest goals allowed. They are also above average on the road in hockey betting as they have a winning record.
Chicago has been fantastic at home this season for gamblers who bet on hockey. The Blackhawks simply don’t lose very often in the United Center. Chicago has been winning with a defense that is the best in the NHL. Their offense is not bad either, ranking right around the Top 10 in goals scored as bet on hockey statistics indicate.
