Last season it was the Chicago Blackhawks who proved to be triumphant in the NHL, culminating in a Stanley Cup win. With the new season now started, fans of ice hockey betting will have to decide whether they think the Blackhawks can do it again. The bookmakers certainly think they can, as Chicago are rated just 7/1 at many of them. But what about the Philadelphia Flyers?
The Flyers are currently 50/1 to win the Stanley Cup. If you ask any Flyers fan they will tell you those are big odds. A more promising bet is for them to win the Metropolitan Division title at 20/1. Behind favorites Pittsburgh (4/7), NY Islanders (7/1), Washington (8/1) and Columbus (14/1) the Flyers could well pull off a shock and finish on the top spot. Who ever you are backing it is going to be tough to make a correct bet on who will win the Stanley Cup. A great alternative is the simplicity of a game like Break Away at www.luckynuggetcasino.com/online-slots if you are looking for a good thrill.
