Bruins Blowout Alters NHL Betting Landscape
Just when it looked as though the Vancouver Canucks were about to take a stranglehold on the Stanley Cup Finals, an inspired Boston Bruins team managed to storm back into the championship picture with an impeccable 8-1 home rout.
After dropping both Games 1 and 2 in Vancouver - with little luck finding an answer for goaltender Roberto Luongo - the B’s had their Eureka moment Monday night.
It’s put betting on the Stanley Cup Finals in a whole new perspective.
Though they didn’t score at all in the first period, an Andrew Ference slapshot in the second period triggered an avalanche of goals that didn’t end until the final minute of the third.
But the convincing victory did more than simply narrow Vancouver’s lead on the series (now the best-of-seven sits at 2-1), it obliterated any momentum the Canucks might have had heading into Wednesday’s Game 4.
Luongo, who until that point had stopped 64 of 66 shots, was on the hook for each of the eight goals, begging the question of how he - or anyone - could possibly adapt. Is it even possible to rebound from such an onslaught so soon?
The Bruins are -125 favorites for game 4 and are +300 to win the Stanley Cup which may very well be a bargain, especially if they can grab game 4 which would enable you to lock in a guaranteed profit should you choose.
