Hockey Betting Playoffs – New Jersey at Carolina

Hockey betting playoffs odds on Sunday favor the Carolina Hurricanes as they host the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 of their NHL Playoff series.

Gamblers that bet on hockey have seen a lot of great action in this series with nearly every game going down to the wire. Let’s look at Game 6 between New Jersey and Carolina.

Hockey betting playoffs odds have been very close on this series between the Devils and Hurricanes. The Devils have Martin Brodeur and a balanced offense while the Hurricanes have Cam Ward and a lot of young talent. What has surprised some people that bet on hockey in this series is the success of the road team. The Hurricanes were able to get a split in New Jersey while the Devils won Game 3 in Carolina. The hockey betting playoffs odds still favor Carolina though considering they are strong at home and have been strong against New Jersey at home. Before this hockey betting playoffs series began, the Hurricanes had won six of the last nine home games against New Jersey.

New Jersey was a very good road team this season for gamblers who bet on hockey. The Devils have Brodeur in goal and overall they play excellent defense as their Top 5 ranking in the league would indicate. Playing good defense and getting great goaltending is the way to win on the road in hockey betting playoffs action and that is the formula that New Jersey has used.

Carolina has very similar hockey betting playoffs numbers to New Jersey. The Hurricanes have an excellent goaltender in Cam Ward and an efficient offense. Carolina is also in the Top 10 in defense as hockey betting playoffs statistics indicate. That is probably why this hockey betting playoff series has been close and exciting.

The over/under at Carolina was 6-2-1 to the under before this hockey betting playoffs series began. The under makes sense in this hockey betting playoffs series considering both teams have strong defenses and excellent goaltenders. Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have ended with a total of exactly 5. That could easily be the total again in this matchup on Sunday.
