The Stanley Cup odds makers have not had an easy job in 2010 with all the wild and crazy action that’s taken place so far in this series. And with at least one more game left in the 2010 Stanley Cup odds action there’s bound to be plenty more twists and turns in the hockey betting action.
Trailing 3-2 heading into Game 6 the Philadelphia Flyers have to hope that those twists and turns include some good fortune and a victory at home on Wednesday if they want to keep their NHL betting season alive.
After getting blown out by the Blackhawks in Game 5 in Chicago (7-4) the Flyers have got to make a better showing in Game 6 or the team’s amazing Cinderella run will come up short. But there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic if you’re a Flyers fan and the biggest reason for that is the simple fact that the team will be playing at home in front of what very likely might be the craziest sports crowd that Philly has seen in decades.
Home ice has been the dominant theme throughout this Stanley Cup betting series and the team that has it has won every game in this NHL odds matchup. That simple and undeniable factor has seemed to dictate the 2010 Stanley Cup odds action so far and so it’s impossible for sports betting fans to ignore.
But the Flyers are going to have to do more than simply show up to their home arena to push the 2010 Stanley Cup betting action to Game 7. In Game 6 Dustin Byfuglien destroyed the flyers defense playing from the second line and that simple change in the Chicago attack seemed to throw the Flyers for a loop. The Flyers must somehow find a way to correct the mistake so Game 6 and make sure there is a consistent body on him.
The Flyers also have to come out aggressive on the offensive end in Game 6. Every time this team has won it’s gotten out to a solid early start and that’s what it must do in tonight’s Stanley Cup betting action. If Philly falls behind early it’s not a team built to come from behind and it will struggle.
But you still have to like the Flyers chances in tonight’s NHL odds matchup. This is a team that has responded to adversity all NHL playoff betting season and tonight should be no different.
