The 2010 hockey gambling season will be recalled for lots of things but perhaps the longest lasting and most poignant impression that will linger on in the collective memory of the sports wagering community is the terrific NHL playoff gambling competition.
Any 1 that made a hockey wager on any of these fantastic games won’t soon forget it after witnessing numerous highs and lows in this year’s NHL postseason probabilities bouts.
That the Hawks won this year’s Stanley Cup Finals wagering championship isn’t all that shocking. In reality it’s a fairly logical hockey betting ending given that this squad was one of the best in the NHL betting all year prolonged (112 points) and a #2 seed in the Western Conference. But what was unpredicted, and very pleasing for buffs that made a hockey bet this post season, was how the Chicago Blackhawks and their Stanley Cup betting competitors, Philadelphia arrived at the NHL Finals gambling odds.
The Western Conference playoff gambling wasn’t all that unpredictable and there weren’t many upsets as the Hawks competed their way to a conference championship and berth in the Stanley Cup wagering competition. How effortlessly the Blackhawks overcame the #1 seed San Jose Sharks in the Conference Final gambling was the greatest shock. However that predictability (and high quality hockey betting event) was a fine counterweight to the insanity of the Eastern Conference playoff hockey wagering.
The Eastern Conference NHL playoff wagering was so crazy that if you were among the countless sports gambling devotees that made a hockey on any of those games there’s a quite good possibility that you lost money. Just put, this year’s NHL playoff gambling, at least in the Eastern Conference, was the most capricious in NHL wagering history –hands down.
History was re-written as we witnessed upset after upset and the most unlikely pairing of a #7 seed (Flyers) and a #8 seed (Montreal Canadiens) fought it out in the rink for a bid to compete in the Stanley Cup gambling finals. It was a tremendous season of NHL playoff betting and the only regret is that this wild ride had to come to a finish.
Right away you may tell this was this was going to be a major hockey gambling battle and if the Hawks were going to claim their first tournament in 5 decades and hoist this year’s Stanley Cup probabilities championship they were going to have to earn it. And that’s precisely what they did.
Game 6 of this year’s Stanley Cup odds competition came to a marvelous result in OT when Patrick Kane smacked in an unlikely goal to give the Hawks not only a Game 6 victory but a Stanley Cup gambling title as well.
It was the city of Chicago’s first sports gambling title since the White Sox won the World Series in 2005 and the city’s first Stanley Cup probabilities championship in 49 years.
It absolutely was a highly exciting and fitting conclusion to a amazing Stanley Cup betting series.
