We are not doing any tips tonight on the main lines. With our series bet on the double of Blackhawks/Penguins to progress, the odds just don’t make it valuable to bet either side tonight, so we’re going to be sitting out and hoping for the series bet to come in.
We also looked at the Over/Under but it’s too close to call. The odds are 2.15/1.8 and there’s just not enough value. 3 out of the 5 games so far have hit the exact 5 goal mark for a push. Any bet either side you’re honestly as well as flipping a coin. It could be an extremely offensive game, or a game where both teams stick to really tight defense.
If there’s one bet you may like – the only one we can really see – is value in the Blackhawks scoring the last goal – 1.83 odds at http://www.bet365.com(Non-Americans) http://www.bovada.lv(Americans).
No matter what the outcome of the game is – the Hawks are going to have the best chance to score at the end of the game. Both teams are 1.83 odds to score the last goal, but we feel the Blackhawks should be heavy favourites on that.
Look at all the potential scenarios. Detroit leading? Blackhawks are going to hammer their goal. Blackhawks leading? They most likely already scored the last goal and will have a chance at an empty netter. Tied up? Blackhawks are going to be the ones putting the most pressure on, knowing how important the win is.
Enjoy the game tonight. Go Hawks!
