It is the last game of a five-game road trip for the Penguins. Vancouver has won six of the last ten in this hockey betting series against Pittsburgh.
Bet on hockey odds are very close on this game between two of the top teams in the league. The teams have split their last four meetings in Vancouver, the latest coming over a year ago when Pittsburgh won 2-1 in hockey betting. The last three times Pittsburgh and Vancouver have played the games have gone under the bet on hockey total. It would seem with all of the offensive talent on the ice that the games would go over but that has not been the case in this bet on hockey matchup.
Pittsburgh has been almost as good on the road for those that bet on hockey as at home. The hockey betting price on the Penguins is sure better on the road. The Penguins are in the Top 5 in the league in goals scored as bet on hockey stats show and that is no surprise considering they have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The Penguins are just outside the Top 10 on defense this bet on hockey season. Marc-Andre Fleury is getting almost all the playing time in goal this season and he has played very well this year.
Vancouver has been a very good team at home this season for those that bet on hockey. The Canucks are just about .500 on the road but at home they have been very solid in hockey betting. Vancouver actually has been so good that they rank in the Top 10 in both goals scored and in fewest goals against. The defense is not a huge surprise since they have Roberto Luongo in goal but the offense being in the Top 5 is a major shock. Even though they are scoring goals in bunches, the Canucks are a team that goes under the bet on hockey total at home more often than not.
This bet on hockey matchup should really be a good one. The Canucks are a solid team at home this season while the Penguins are a very good road team. Two of the best teams in the league on CBC on Saturday night, it sounds like a good game for those that love to bet on hockey.
