And you certainly say what you want about the Stanley Cup betting action, as it’s been a bit unconventional this year, but ‘boring’ would certainly not be appropriate term.
This Stanley Cup odds series has had a little bit of everything. After wins in Game 1 and 2 it seemed as though the Chicago Blackhawks were well on their way to a sweep of the NHL betting series. But then the Stanley Cup betting action shifted to Philadelphia and the Flyers did what they have done best this NHL playoff betting season: they beat the NHL odds. After losing two straight Stanley Cup odds competitions they won the next two at home and tied the Stanley Cup betting series at 2-2.
And then in Game 5 Chicago not only won the Stanley Cup odds matchup at home, they thoroughly dominated the game handing the Phillies their hat in a 7-4 loss in which the Flyers were never really even close.
Among the constants in this Stanley Cup odd series is the fact that, with the exception of Game 5, most of these games have been decided by 1 goal. Also, for the most part, this has been a very high scoring NHL betting series with two of the game combined scores crossing into double digits. And last, this NHL playoff betting series has been dominated by the home team. In fact, neither team in this hockey betting series has won a game on the road.
No team has won the road in this series….yet!
That could change on Wednesday in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup odds competition. The other thing about this series has been the unpredictability. And what could be more unpredictable than a road team winning in this NHL odds matchup?
But it seems likely that this hockey betting series will go the distance and a Game 7 in the Windy City will settle once and for all one of the most interesting Stanley Cup betting matchups we’ve seen in years.
Philly should win at home in Game 6 or the NHL betting season is over. And if they do win than they’ll have to become the first team in this series to win a road game if they want to hoist Sir Stanley’s hardware.
