Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 Free Pick
What: Game 7 of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Finals
When: 8:00PM ET
Odds: Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog currently list the Canucks as –148 money line favorites over the Bruins, who are +136 on the ML. The over/under total for tonight’s Game 7 is currently sitting at 5 goals.
Public Betting: Of the 8,400-plus wagers on tonight’s game, 69% of NHL public bettors favor the visiting Bruins at +136 money line odds.
Key Stats: David Krejci leads the league in postseason points with 23, while Henrik Sedin is right behind him with 22. Boston netminder Tim Thomas also leads the league in postseason GAA at 2.06 and also has a NHL-best .937 save percentage. Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo has the most postseason wins with 15.
Game 7 Free Pick: I hate to go against Thomas when he’s been fantastic this entire postseason but I just don’t trust the Bruins’ offense on the road. Neither team has won a road game in this series so why should we think Boston will break that trend now? Luongo has looked horrendous on the road before in this series, only to stand on his head with amazing performances at home. Thus, I think he’ll rebound and the Canucks will take Game 7 tonight. According to latest NHL trends, the favorite is 6-0 in the last six meetings between these two teams and the home team is 6-0 as well.
