If everything goes as the Chicago Blackhawks hope in their upcoming Game 4 hockey betting showdown with the Vancouver Canucks (Friday May7th) than the Hawks will be playing to close out this NHL betting odds series in Game 5 at home on Sunday.
Heading into Game 4 of this NHL playoff betting series the Hawks hold a slight 2-1 lead in the series. After splitting the first two games in Chicago the Hawks touched down in Canada and stole the first game in Vancouver to take the overall lead in the hockey betting series. But Game 4 will be no push over and the hockey odds makers like the Canucks’ chances to win this game and even the hockey betting series at two games apiece.
Still, the Hawks are in the driver seat right now and reclaiming the momentum from the Canucks and seem to have found the formula to beating the Canucks in this NHL playoff betting competition. In the past two games the Hawks have had great success getting the puck past super-tender Roberto Luongo.
NHL betting odds will favor the Canucks at home in Game 4 but if the Blackhawks can successfully bully the home team and crowd the box in front of Luongo again for 3 periods of hockey they will most likely win Game 4 and that will put the team in position to close out the this hockey wagering series in front of its hometown crowd on Sunday May 9th.
Expect the Sedin brothers to come out with a vengeance in Game 4 and put goalie Antti Niemi under constant fire. In the Hawks Game 3 win Neimi was brilliant saving 31 of 33 shots and had a huge part in securing the NHL playoff betting victory for the visitors. If he can again hold the Canucks to 2 goals or less you have to like their chances as this team has been so good over the past two games of this Stanley Cup betting series and bum rushing the net and getting Luongo off his game.
However, the only guarantee in the run to Game 5 of this stellar NHL playoff betting series is that it should be incredibly entertaining as this sports betting matchup has turned into the best series in hockey right now.
