NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round One Betting Action Begins Tonight

Chicago vs. Minnestoa: Hawks are huge chalk over the Wild

As they are with a -425 series price at the Sportsbook.ag wagering website, Chicago is posted as thick chalk in Game One of their first round battle with Minnesota. The Blackhawks took the season series versus the Wild by a 2-1 count. The two games won by Chicago were close (1-0 and 5-3) while Minnesota scored a 3-2 S/O win. We’ll soar with the Hawks at home at the United Center with the -1.5 (+120) price at Sportsbook.ag!

St. Louis vs. Los Angeles: Blues out to avenge 2012 playoff sweep by the Kings

One has to wonder how St. Louis views their first round playoff opponent as Los Angeles steamrolled them in the 2012 NHL postseason. That series opened at the Scottrade Center with the Kings winning 3-1 and 5-2 before the scene shifted to the Staples Center where the Champs broke out the brooms and swept away the Blues with 4-2 and 3-1 wins. The Blues are better this year but we like the Kings +1.5 (-300) puck line here.

Anaheim vs. Detroit: Wings sneak into postseason play – face the #2 seed Ducks

Though it wasn’t easy, Detroit made it to the NHL Playoff Party for the 22nd straight season this year. This first round action is a re-match of the 2008-09 Western Conference Semifinal match-up where the Wings defeated the Ducks with a hard fought 4-3 series win. Prior to that, Anaheim had knocked Detroit out of the contention in the 2002-03 and 2006-07 postseason. Give us the Wings with the +1.5 (-250) spread in this contest.

National Hockey League Western Conference First Round Series Prices & Predictions

Chicago Blackhawks with the -450 series price
Los Angeles Kings with the -115 series price
Anaheim Ducks with the -130 series price
San Jose Sharks with the +105 series price
