Stanley Cup Finals Betting: Chicago Blackhawks vs Philadelphia Flyers

Chicago Blackhawks vs Philadelphia Flyers Live NHL Betting: Chicago will play fourth game in a best of Seven Series in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals at the Wachovia Center on Friday, June 4, 2010 and match starts at 8:00pm EDT. Chicago Blackhawks leads the series with 2-1.

Chicago won the first two matches in the Series and leads with 2-0, but in the third match Philadelphia Flyers won and drop-down the lead to 1-2. Flyers was able to counteract the Chicago Blackhawks attack and is now looking to even things up on Friday night.

Sports Betting reminds everyone that it’s not just about the moneyline. NHL odds betting aficionados also will take a look at the series price, despite the fact that we are three games in. Just as before the series began, the Chicago Blackhawks odds remain quite high to win their first Stanley Cup since 1961.

NHL betting on the Blackhawks with Sports Betting for the series price is -380, fairly steep for a 2-1 series. The Flyers appear to be getting stronger each game. Add in the fact that the first two Stanley Cup Finals betting games were only one-goal affairs, and it’s hard not to consider betting on the Flyers. Currently, the Flyers are +300 to win their first Stanley Cup since the mid-70’s.

Led by Claude Giroux and his all-important overtime game-winner in Game 3, the Flyers now appear poised to tie up the series. If that should hold true then it’s anyone’s series at that point, making their NHL playoff betting series price all that more appealing.

Philadelphia has been the best home team in these Stanley Cup playoffs, so expect them to come out with fire once again in Game 4. Now, can they win a game on the road in Chicago? Sports Betting’s oddsmakers and bettors appear to think so. At -380 to win the Stanley Cup, the Hawks are being viewed as virtually a lock.

We beg to differ. The Flyers were counted out in the regular season before they qualified on the last day of the season. They were heavy underdogs to the Devils in the first round and then steamrolled them. They were down 3-0 to the Bruins and won in seven. They rolled by the Canadiens. And finally, they were trailing the Blackhawks before Wednesday night. Why go against them? Consider +300 for the series price and bet the Flyers.
