Chicago look like the team to beat again in this season’s NHL, as they seek to retain the title they won last time out, and they appear to be in a better position to do than they were back in 2010. But if anybody can beat them to the title then it’s the Pittsburgh Penguins. With Chicago’s Stanley Cup triumph still fresh in the air, the Penguins look fired up to take the glory this season. All this is reflected in the bookies putting Pittsburgh 11/7 favorites ahead of Chicago (8/1). But looking elsewhere there is a strong threat which makes for some interesting ice hockey betting.
In particular the Eastern Conference has teams that could give the Penguins real trouble, not only as mentioned above Chicago but also the Boston Bruins. Boston are 9/1 to win the Stanley Cup and look a real threat this season. It may be to early to call it a 3 horse race but the money looks to be going on one of these teams to take home the trophy this season. All this suggests a very competitive NHL this season, but a bit of a headache for betting fans, so the ice hockey online casino games like Break Away might be a fun bit of light relief.
