And now with a new super duo, Sid the Kid and Evgani Malkin, the Pens are looking to qualify for their second consecutive inclusion in Stanley Cup betting finals at online sportsbook sites this year.
Stanley Cup betting fans have watched this year’s team and marveled as it has thrashed opponents in this year’s post season. It’s a completely different team than the one that was beat down by the Red Wings in last year’s Stanley Cup odds and one that has the look of a Stanley Cup betting champion. There has been huge sports betting transformation this post season and the Stanley Cup odds makers would certainly think twice before making the Pens an underdog in this year’s Stanley Cup betting, should they advance that far.
And it seems all but certain that the team will advance to the Stanley Cup betting for a second straight year in 2009. This team has its weaknesses, but its strengths are simply stronger than any of its opponents so far in the 2009 Stanley Cup betting competition. The key to the Pens success so far has simply been to blast as many shots as possible at the opponent and so far it’s led the team to within three wins from a berth in the 2009 Stanley Cup odds.
Crosby and Malkin have been outstanding –the two best players still in the hunt for the Stanley Cup betting title, by a long shot. The only team with a legitimate shot at derailing the Pens’ hopes is the Detroit Red Wings –the team that crushed Pittsburgh in last year’s Stanley Cup betting. But Pittsburgh seems to be very different and much more confident team this season and the result would surely be different if these two teams were to match up again this season.
First the Pens must get through a red hot Canes team that knocked off one of the early Stanley Cup betting favorites, the Bruins. But as we saw in Game 1 of this match up, the offense of the Pens proved too much for Carolina.
Pittsburgh seems assured of a spot in the 2009 Stanley Cup betting, and once they’re there, they have a very good shot at avenging their loss in last year’s finals.
