Sports betting fans have seen Detroit make yet another run for the Stanley Cup while the Blackhawks are having their best online sports betting season in many years.
Despite being a consistently heavy sports betting favorite due to their reputation and popularity with the online sports betting public the Detroit Red Wings have been the 3rd most profitable team against the hockey betting odds in the NHL Playoffs this far.
Detroit’s sports betting strength is their offense which was the top ranked unit in the NHL playoffs with an average of 3.75 goals per game. The defense has been almost as good of a sports betting commodity as it ranked 2nd in the NHL playoffs with a 2.17 goals against average.
Detroit center Johan Franzen has been a major factor for Detroit and their sports betting success as he led the Wings in scoring with 9 goals and 8 assists. Left winger Henrik Zetterberg was right behind him with 7 goals and 9 assists.
Right winger Daniel Cleary and defensemen Niklas Lidstrom had 11 points each and Lidstrom has been strong in front of goaltender Chris Osgood, who was having an outstanding post season between the pipes.
The Chicago Blackhawks had the 2nd best attack in the NHL sports betting post season as they were averaging 3.54 goals per game. The defense, on the other hand, is a sports betting concern as it ranked only 13th in the NHL playoffs. The Blackhawks attack has been balanced and deep with five players having at least 10 points.
Right wingers Martin Havlat and Patrick Kane led the attack with 13 points while another right winger, Kris Versteeg, had 11 points. Defenseman Brent Seabrook and center Jonathan Toews were also sports betting assets with 10 points each. Center David Bolland, Defenseman Brian Campbell, and center Patrick Shark had 9 points each.
