The Philadelphia Flyers are in a very spot in their Stanley Cup betting series with the Boston Bruins. It’s not an impossible situation, as two teams have come back from being down 0-3 in an NHL playoff betting series, but it’s about as close to an impossible sports betting scenario as you can get. On Saturday May 8th the Flyers will be playing for the NHL playoff betting life, quite literally.
It’s win or go home for the Flyers and the smart money says the Philly players should start dusting off the golf clubs because this series is as over as Denise Richards acting career. The Bruins are not the prettiest team in the hockey betting odds action but the NHL playoffs ain’t no beauty contest.
You go with what works and for the Bruins that means beating your hockey betting opponents into submission. Is it dirty? Is it ugly? Is it unsporting? Sure. But that’s hockey betting and its also what’s going to book the Bruins a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals betting and put them with four wins of the Stanley Cup betting odds as well.
Games 1 and 2 were tight games with the Bruins pulling out one goal wins in each. But after the dominance of the Bruins in Game 3 it’s difficult to imagine the Flyers coming back and avoid the NHL playoff betting sweep. The Flyers had hope defend their home ice and pull themselves back into this NHL playoff betting series by getting a win in front of their home crowd.
Instead, the Bruins completely destroyed the team and their Stanley Cup betting dreams with a very sobering 4-1 win on Wednesday. Saturday’s Game 4 will be the Flyers last stand. The team has almost no shot at all at winning this series and beyond getting one last win for the home town crowd there is little motivation for the team. Game 3 not only gave the Bruins an insurmountable hockey betting lead but it also ripped out the Flyers’ heart. Philly is a beaten team and the Bruins will put them out of the NHL playoff betting misery in Game 4.
