Stanley Cup Finals Game 4 Prediction
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog have made the host Bruins –118 money line favorites over the visiting Canucks, who are +109 on the ML. The over/under total for this game is currently 5 goals.
The Bruins opened as –125 money line favorites but their odds quickly dropped to –115. Now they’re anywhere from –115 to –125 between the money line. Current NHL public betting information shows that of the 3,000-plus wagers placed on tonight’s game, 64% of public bettors favor the Bruins –118.
NHL Stanley Cup Finals Game 4 Free Pick: Even thought he NHL has handed Aaron Rome a four-game suspension for hitting Nathan Horton in the head during Game 3, there’s no doubt that the Canucks are sadly the benefactors of this incident. Horton will miss the rest of the Finals due to a severe concussion, which is a huge blow for Boston. Despite the Bruins’ convincing victory in Game 3, I like Vancouver to increase its series lead tonight with a victory. According to latest NHL trends, the Canucks are 28-11 in their last 39 road games and 39-16 in their last 55 games overall. Meanwhile, the Bruins are just 1-4 in their last five games following a win and 0-5 in their last five after allowing two goals or less in their previous outing. Take the Canucks.
