The Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks will play one deciding game tonight to see who will be crowned the 2010-2011 Stanely Cup Champion.
This has been an extremely entertaining series, with a lot of verbal and physical abuse from each team. At the start of the series most experts didn’t think that the Bruins would be able to keep up with the Canucks speed and size, but they have done so and more. The Bruins have dominated the Canucks in their three home games in this Stanley Cup finals series, and are looking for their first win in Vancouver to hoist the Cup tonight.
Below are the Bruins vs Canucks Game 7 betting odds, as well as my personal insight on tonight’s deciding game…

Game 7 Picks:
This is a pretty tough game to handicap if you look at the way the series has been played. Boston has actually outplayed the Canucks by far throughout the series, but have yet to win in Vancouver. The Canucks have come away with 3 one goal wins at home, giving them 6 straight wins on home ice. Boston has beat up on the Canucks on their home ice, winning the three games by scores of 8-1, 4-0, and 5-2. Tim Thomas is clearly the stronger goaltender in this series, but Luongo has played just as solid at home. Note that Boston is winless in their last 5 road games, which might affect their confidence going into what will be a CRAZY atmosphere in the Canucks Rogers Arena. The home team has won 12 of 15 previous Game 7’s. Another weird stat with this series, is that it is actually the Canucks struggling on the powerplay (2 for 31 compared to the Bruins who are 5 for 26).
I have a series bet on the Bruins to win the Stanley Cup (which was put in after Game 4), so I am going to stick with that and give the edge to the Bruins here at +120. I think the Canucks deserve to be very slight favorites, but with the way the Bruins have out played the Canucks and only lost by a single goal each game in Vancouver, I have to think the smart money is being put on Tim Thomas and the Bruins as underdogs.
