Stanley Cup betting is something that borders on the scared for most hard core hockey fans. While the Stanley Cup odds generally take a backseat to the NFL and NBA, for the truly insane and diehard hockey fans there is simply nothing better than the Stanley Cup betting.
And for Chicago’s online sports betting fans this is the shot at the Stanley Cup that they’ve been waiting many years for.
Stanley Cup betting odds makers weren’t exactly smitten with this team heading into the conference finals and weren’t sold on the idea that this team would be featured in the 2009 Stanley Cup betting. After two games against the defending Stanley Cup odds champs they seem to have been justified in their predictions. Neither team has played especially well but the Wings have proven more resourceful when it counted and now have the upper hand in the path to the Stanley Cup. But to be sure this series is far from over and the Blackhawks Stanley Cup betting dreams are hardly dead.
Heading back to Chicago the Hawks could tie the series up at 2-2 in front of the hometown crowd and make a very interesting challenge for the Stanley Cup betting. The Blackhawks struggles in their quest for a Stanley Cup odds berth are eerily similar to Red Wings. The Hawks big guns simply aren’t stepping up on a consistent basis and that has hindered the teams Stanley Cup betting hopes.
Reigning Rookie of the Year Patrick Kane has been inconsistent and he must play well if this team has any hope of reaching the Stanley Cup betting. His line mate and up and coming superstar Jonathon Toews must also step up and lead this team in its Stanley Cup betting quest.
Leading scorer Martin Havlat has stepped up but he can’t do it by himself. The team’s young scorers will be the key for this team to get into the Stanley Cup odds.
In the net, Kabibulan has been decent and the defense has a whole has been resilient. The biggest strike against this team is that it hasn’t taken advantage of its opportunities and against a defending Stanley Cup betting champ like Detroit, it will cost you.
The Hawks’ Stanley Cup betting hopes are still alive, but unless their playmakers start making plays when it matters and if they don’t win the next two games at home, their season will be over.
