Stanley Cup Finals Game 6 Free Pick
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog currently list the host Bruins as –139 money line favorites over the Canucks, who are +128 on the ML. The over/under for tonight’s game is currently sitting at 5 goals.
With their 1-0 win over the Bruins in Vancouver on Friday night, the Canucks are now one victory away from clinching this year’s Stanley Cup Finals. Roberto Luongo saved all 31 shots that he faced in Game 5 and despite his best efforts, Boston netminder Tim Thomas took the loss when he allowed a Maxim Lapierre goal in the third period.
Of the 11,000-plus wagers on tonight’s game, 71% of NHL public bettors favor the Bruins –139 over the Canucks in tonight’s matchup.
Stanley Cup Finals Game 6 Free Pick: Until Vancouver can figure out how to win in Boston, it’s probably safe to take the Bruins and lay the juice on the money line. According to latest NHL trends, the Canucks are 1-4 in their last five trips to Boston and 1-6 in their last seven after allowing two goals or less in their previous game. Meanwhile, the favorite is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams, as is the home team over that same stretch. Thomas has been fantastic this postseason, stopping an amazing 725 out of 774 shots. I believe he’ll will the Bruins to a Game 7.
