TB vs Chicago

The “New Kids on the Block” Tampa Bay Lightning take on the “Old School” Chicago Blackhawks in what is anticipated as a high-flying Stanley Cup finals.

Chicago, going for there 3rd Stanley Cup in 5 years, are the dynasty team in this modern era. Tampa Bay Lightning are seeking their second cup with a young, speedy skilled group hungry to drink out of Lord Stanley.

Both teams have high scoring forwards, defencemen who love to jump into the play and goalies, who frankly stink up the joint from time to time.

Before we get onto our predictions and picks, we asked SportsInteraction’s Frank Doyle who he was picking.

“This is going to be a fun series to watch between a pair of supremely talented teams,” said Doyle. “Ultimately, the Blackhawks have the edge in depth and experience, take the Blackhawks in six games.”

Stanley Cup Prediction & Picks

Game 1: Chicago Blackhawks +105 in Game 1. Blackhawks are the more experience team and you will find better value by taking Chicago in individual games than betting them straight up to win the cup.

Conn Smythe Winner: Patrick Kane +450. Kane has won the trophy before and he loves the big stage. This price is good value on this playmaker.

Series Correct Score: Chicago 4-1 +505. This is somewhat of a longshot, but I do like the Blackhawks to get it done over a weaker side Eastern Conference team who is not as difficult as the Western Conference clubs that the Blackhawks have faced.
