Sports betting backers of Detroit enjoyed an easy stress proof online sports betting win Saturday as the Wings took game 5 by a score of 5-0 to take a 3-2 lead in the series. Game 5 of this sports betting series was the least competitive so far as Detroit took control early and was never seriously threatened.
The Red Wings blew Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury out with 5 goals on 21 shots in just 35:40 of online sports betting action before Mathieu Garon came in for mop up duty when the game was no longer in doubt. Detroit goaltender Chris Osgood posted the shutout win against the Stanley Cup odds as he turned aside 22 shots.
Detroit left wing Henrik Zetterberg and defenseman Brian Rafalski each scored a goal and an assist in the sports betting payoff. The Red Wings continued to do a masterful job of shutting down Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby who has had little impact on this sports betting series.
Through the first 5 games of this sports betting matchup Crosby has but 1 goal and 1 assist. In the 2009 sports betting post season overall Crosby has 15 goals and 16 assists. The home team is now a perfect 5 out of 5 in this Stanley Cup sports betting series. 3 out of the 5 games have gone under the total.
The big sports betting question now is if the Penguins can keep that home team streak going and force a 7th game on Friday night at Detroit. The Penguins will certainly have the motivational edge as they will literally be playing for their lives and have their rabid fans on their side in full support.
Detroit coach Mike Babcock is optimistic, however, as he says the extra day of rest will be beneficial to his team and that they will be a new and improved Red Wing club when they take the ice for game 6.
