Pick: Philadelphia Flyers PL -1.5 @ 3.40 in Unibet / Result: (4-3 OT)
This final is red hot. At least this final will have at least 6 games, instead of the minimum 4 games. This is what everyone likes, as after this big final, the season will be over. And as much equalized this final seems, it will have a better taste for the winner. as at this point, anyone can win. This game 6 will be at Philadelphia, where the Flyers will have to win to tie this series and force a game 7.
In the first 5 games, the home team always won. Besides that, only game 2 had an under, but that was the exception and it wouldn’t be strange if that game ended with an over. So, the magical formula seems “bet against the road team, and put also a coin in the over”.
Despite the 3-2 result against the Blackhawks, the Flyers are showing a great game and gave great replies at Chicago. Only the first period in the last game the Hawks were clearly able to control the game, and that first period was the key for their last win. After a 3-0 in first period, the Hawks weren’t able to win any more period, ending the game 7-4. The offensive power has been impressive in both teams. In this final, the main question is who will score more goals, instead of the normal “who will allow less goals”. Even with the same meaning, its a question of mentality that both teams are having. Due to that, this finals are being fantastic, with great games.
At home, the Flyers will have to do what they have done lately. Win the game. Chicago will not make it easy for them, as the Hawks are more focus in win the Stanley Cup as soon as possible to avoid surprises, than in giving that winning game at home, where anything can happen. On the other hand, at this point, the Flyers can’t lose any game. Is win or go home, but the team is adapted to that circumstances.
Today, we can expect again many goals. The teams will fight with all their strengths, the season is almost over and the commitment of one player can make the difference. The Flyers are giving a great reply to the Hawks, when they were the dogs and no one expected that they would hold so many games. With the support of their fans, they can face any time in this world, their teamwork is huge.
