The Chicago Blackhawks will try and win the Stanley Cup Finals betting on Wednesday night in Philadelphia in Game 6. The home team has won every game in this series with Chicago holding a 3-2 series lead. The Flyers will need to keep that trend going if they want to force a Game 7 back in Chicago on Friday.
Philadelphia is a -120 favorite with a total of 5.5 over at SBG Global.
The Stanley Cup Finals betting has been very high scoring and the Flyers simply don’t have the offensive weapons that Chicago has. If Philadelphia is to win Game 6 on Wednesday they can’t be giving up a ton of shots. They got outscored on Sunday 7-4 as goaltender Michael Leighton was pulled for the second time in this series. Head coach Peter Laviolette has not announced whether Leighton or Brian Boucher would start in Game 6. Leighton has bounced back from tough games throughout the playoffs. He is also a perfect 6-0 at home in the playoffs. He got very little help on Sunday but he wasn’t the only one that played poorly. Defenseman Chris Pronger was terrible and unless he steps up his game this series is over. Captain Mike Richards said the Flyers defense was horrible and the goalies were not to blame.
Philadelphia has been in elimination mode quite a bit. They had to win their regular season finale just to make the playoffs and they were down three games to none against the Bruins and came back to win. The Flyers are definitely a confident team even though they are down 3-2 in the series. The Flyers are 9-1 at home in the playoffs and Chicago has lost 10 straight at Philadelphia so the Flyers have a chance to force a game seven.
