Betting Results Update: NHL Eastern Conference Semifinals
While we have runaway leaders in the National Hockey League Western Conference playoff semifinal series, the betting action in the Eastern Conference is tight in both match-ups. It’s looking more and more like seven games will be needed to determine the Conference Championship combatants in the always close East.
Washington Capitals Draw Even With New York Rangers
Despite squandering two leads during their Eastern Conference semifinal Game Four with the Rangers, Washington had the last laugh as they pulled out a 3-2 win during the puck betting action on Saturday. The UNDER betting trend continues in this series as all four games have been decided by five goals or less.
This was a must win for the Caps after they dropped Game Three with 2-1 triple-overtime home ice loss. Going down 3-1, with the series headed back to the Big Apple, could have spelled dome for Washington. Instead the pesky Capitals now find themselves in a “best of three” series with the Broadway Bleushirts.
New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers – Game Four Goes Today
In the other Eastern Conference NHL semifinal playoff series, the New Jersey Devils have won back-to-back contests to take a 2-1 series lead. Pivotal Game Four action goes today as the Flyers try to avoid falling into a 3-1 series trailing hole. The Devils earned their series lead with a 4-3 OT win way back on Thursday night.
In a postseason that’s been dominated by the goalies, Martin Brodeau at the age of 40 is still showing he’s got what it takes between the pipes in New Jersey. That said, and because Philadelphia doesn’t play defense, this series has seen two of the first three games go OVER the total. Expect that wagering trend to continue today.
In addition to the Flyers vs. Devils contest, the LA Kings will try to close out the St. Louis Blues in Sunday NHL puck betting. The NBA Playoffs, along with action from the MLB diamonds, are also on tap today. Create a personal wagering account in minutes, bank a valuable bonus, and get in on the sports wagering action!
