Upset watch: Red Wings' odds on the move

The Detroit Red Wings are just one win away from defying the odds and bouncing the heavily-favored Chicago Blackhawks from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Red Wings took a commanding 3-1 series lead with a 2-0 victory in Game 4 of their second-round playoff series with the Blackhawks. Detroit opened as a +260 underdog in the series and is now a -375 favorite after picking up three straight wins over Chicago. The Red Wings are now 7-4 straight up and 2-4-5 over/under in the playoffs to date.

Detroit’s Stanley Cup futures are also on the move. The Wings opened at +3,000 entering the postseason, but oddsmakers were forced to move their number to +1,300 after their improbable come-from-behind win over the Anaheim Ducks in Round 1. Now that number sits at +500 ahead of Game 5.

The Blackhawks are -197 favorites in Game 5 at the United Center on Saturday and linesmakers have set a total of 5.
