NHL Playoffs odds will be posted for one of the most attractive hockey wagering series so far this spring between Chicago and Vancouver. NHL Playoffs odds should be relatively even for this series between hockey wagering commodities that have everything needed to go all the way!
The first two games of this series against the NHL Playoffs odds will be at Vancouver, who won the northwest division title. The Canucks "brought out the broom" in their first round hockey wagering series with a 4-game sweep of the St. Louis Blues. Chicago dispatched of the Calgary Flames in six games.
The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the hottest teams going right now against the NHL Playoffs odds as they have gotten the cash in 9 out of their last 12 games. Just 3 of those 12 games went over the total. Chicago is one of the most balanced teams on the board as they ranked 4th overall on offense and 5th overall on defense. Right winger Kris Versteeg was their leading scorer against the NHL Playoffs odds in the first round as he had 2 goals and 5 assists.
Defenseman Cam Barker had 3 goals and 3 assists while Martin Havlat, one of Chicago's top scorers during the regular season, had 3 goals and 3 assists. Chicago's other two top snipers from the regular season, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, also contributed against the NHL Playoffs odds in the first round as Toews had 2 goals and 4 assists while Kane had 2 goals and 2 assists. Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin posted a nice 2.52 goals against average in all six games of that opening round.
The Vancouver Canucks are even hotter than the Blackhawks and have enjoyed sustained success since February 3. The Canucks have gotten the cash in 27 out of 36 games since that date and are riding the wave of goaltender Roberto Luongo against the NHL Playoffs odds. Luongo has a microscopic 1.16 goals against average so far versus the NHL Playoffs odds as he posted all four of the Canucks wins in the first round. Left winger Daniel Sedin led Vancouver in scoring in the first round versus the NHL Playoffs odds with 3 goals and 2 assists.
