Sports betting on Chicago and Detroit is an online sports betting handicap of two hated rivals from the same division and the old “original six” of the NHL! The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the most promising and balanced teams in NHL sports betting while the Detroit Red Wings are a traditional and long respected online sports betting powerhouse.
Game one of this best of seven series versus the hockey betting odds will be Sunday, May 17. This sports betting series may be one of the most even of any sport so far this year. The Chicago Blackhawks are coming off a six game series victory over the Vancouver Canucks.
Prior to that the Blackhawks earned a six game sports betting series win over the Calgary Flames. The Blackhawks have the number one ranked offense in the NHL post season sports betting stat charts. Their defense ranks 10th so far in the playoffs.
Right wing Martin Havlat leads Chicago in scoring for the sports betting post season with 5 goals and 8 assists. Fellow right winger Patrick Kane has 8 goals and 5 assists. Center Jonathan Toews has 4 goals and 6 assists to round out the same top three scorers in the playoffs for Chicago that were on top of the team for the regular season.
Right winger Kris Versteeg has also been effective with 3 goals and 7 assists. Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, who was put on waivers in the summer, came back to Chicago and has been solid in goal with an 8-4 record and 2.76 goals against average for the sports betting playoffs.
The Detroit Red Wings swept the Columbus Blue Jackets in the opening round of the sports betting playoffs and then went the full even games against the Anaheim Ducks before winning the deciding game at home 4-3. The number two seeded Wings will have the home ice advantage for this series.
They are led by center John Franzen who has 8 goals and 6 assists for the playoffs. Left wing Henrik Zetterberg is also with Franzen as he has 6 goals and 8 assists. Goaltender Chris Osgood is 8-3 with a 2.09 goals against average.
