As the series to determine the new Stanley Cup Champions begin, online betting fans have already began to place their wagers on the series and on game 1. For the moment the Pittsburg Penguins have gathered the majority of action at first. This isn’t really any type of surprise, after all they are rightfully considered the favorites, after outlasting the Lightning in 7 grueling games and surviving tough series prior to that against the Rangers and Capitals. Yet the Penguins are yet to face, perhaps, their toughest opponent, and they come in the form of some scary dudes with big beards. The Sharks are not going to enter the Stanley Cup Finals just “happy to be there”, they want to win… badly.
After two fantastic Conference Finals, online betting fans have now our Stanley Cup Final, as the series will start this coming Monday. The Pittsburg Penguins survived the series against the Tampa bay lightning as it went to an epic game 7, while the Sharks managed to put away the St. Louis Blues in 6. The stage is set and we are in for some exciting hockey action, as the most prestigious trophy on the land awaits a new home. SBG Global Sportsbook has just posted the line and we have our very own exclusive loom into the odds to win big.
The San Jose Sharks made a lot of people betting on hockey happy by beating the St. Louis Blues 5-2 in game 6 of the NHL playoffs Western Conference Finals and winning the series 4-2. The team led by Joe Pavelski will not go on to compete for the Stanley Cup championship for the first time in its 25-year history. Goalkeeper Martin Jones is the only Shark who has won the cup – as a backup netminder for the Los Angeles Kings in 2014 – while Dainius Zubrus is the only one of his teammates who has played in Stanley Cup final – actually in two; in 1997 with the Philadelphia Flyers and in 2012 with the New Jersey Devils (both losing efforts).
Just as we had called it on a previous article, the Penguins kicked out of sweet chin music from the Lightning and we are headed for a game 7! Online betting fans are now waiting what is going to be the culmination of a classic series. After being put on the verge of elimination at home and on OT, the Penguins headed down to St. Louis looking to fight for survival and get one last game. And they did so on impressive fashion routing the Lightning 5-2. Game 7 will be this Thursday May 26th, with the winner moving on to the Stanley Cup Final.
