Sportsbook.com NHL Odds: Game 7 Betting


This Stanley Cup Finals have been all about the chalk, making the hometown Detroit Red Wings a favorite to cash-in tonight.

The home team has one each of the six games so far and with Detroit overcoming a number of injuries to get to this point, they should be rejuvenated, playing before the home folks for the chance to hoist Lord Stanley’s mug.

Sportsbook.com opened Detroit as -170 money line favorites (highest of the series) and the wagering public has bet them up to -190. The Red Wings are 11-1 at Joe Louis Arena in the postseason and have won nine in a row at home. They are 9-2 as -150 to -200 playoff favorites.


Detroit will need the likes of Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and struggling Marion Hossa to have big games. Zetterberg and particularly Hossa have not been as effective of late.

Hossa admitted to ESPN.com reporter Pierre LeBrun he is pressing. Hossa made the controversial choice of leaving Pittsburgh for Detroit in the off-season and could be 0-2 in Cup finals, should the Wings lose.

Pittsburgh is 6-6 on the road in the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs, including three consecutive defeats in Detroit where they totaled just two measly goals.

This is the time for Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to elevate their games to superstardom. They felt the taste of bitter defeat a year ago and are 60 minutes from hoisting the Cup for first time. Neither has scratched the score sheet the last two games, a third would raise more questions than find solutions for a team that is 43-19 after scoring two or less goals.

Like most hockey confrontations, goaltending is front and center for such an important contest. Chris Osgood of the Red Wings has the pedigree and the rings.Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury has a chance to step into greatness. Most people forget Fleury was the first piece to Penguins revival, being just the third ever goaltender taken as the first draft choice.

He played on some wretched Pittsburgh squads before Crosby and Malkin showed up and is still the biggest question mark coming into Game 7.

He’s been brilliant at times in the series, but has had trouble in Detroit.

“You have stuff happening in your head, but you have to just block all the outside, all the negative thoughts and just play the game, keep it simple, have some fun,” Fleury said. “To have an opportunity like this to get [the Cup], it’s awesome.”

The total is listed at its lowest figure of the seven games at Under 5.5 (the rest were even or over 5.5) and the previous three contests in Detroit played Under.

The Red Wings are 9-3-2 UNDER in last 14 Stanley Cup Finals contests, with Pittsburgh 16-5 UNDER after allowing one goal or less in their previous game this season.

The winner of Game 7 will have untold joy, which will commence at 8 pm ET on NBC, with the favorite 13-3 in last 16 meetings between these teams.

  1. I have to admit, there was no way I thought the Peguins would win that game. You have to give them credit in that the put pressure on the Red Wings right from the start and kept them off balance the entire game.
