Stanley Cup action report: Bruins drawing SU and puckline action

There’s not much room for error in the Stanley Cup final with Chicago and Boston needing extra frames to finish Games 1 and 2.

With the series tied 1-1 heading to Beantown, we talk to Aron Black of Bet365.com about the betting action coming in on Game 3 Monday.

Chicago Blackhawks at Boston Bruins – Open:  -130, Move: -121

The Bruins have watched their moneyline odds slim a little since opening but the majority of the action is on the home side for Game 3, according to Black, who says money on Boston SU is outnumbering Chicago at a 5:1 rate.

The puckline has drawn Boston bets as well, with the Bruins priced at -1.5 (+235), despite the fact the first two games needed sudden-death overtime to be decided. The overtime trend has also scared bettors away from the three-way moneyline odds, with NHL fans passing on the winner in regulation offerings (Chicago +190/Boston +130/Tie +250) and just wagering on the SU moneyline.

Since Boston won Game 2 in overtime, Bet365.com has moved the series prices to a pick’em with both the Bruins and Blackhawks set at -110.

“Series money still more towards Boston but at pick’em now, we are seeing some Chicago money,” Black told Covers. “But overall we are in a better position if Chicago wins.”

The under is taking a lot of action with bettors siding with a low-scoring Game 3 at a 4:1 rate. The first two games of the series have split the total, with Game 2’s 2-1 OT finish staying below the number.
