As it was at the start of the postseason, it is at the start of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 7 odds are in, and according to Bodog, and the home-standing Canucks are favored to win the game and the Cup. The moneyline sits at +120 for the Bruins and -140 for the Canucks.
The prop bets on Game 7 are pretty entertaining. The Canucks are slightly favored to score first, and the team that has scored first in every game so far in the Finals has won the game. Bodog agrees that the trend will continue in Game 7, favoring whichever team that scores first -250 to +195.
Interestingly enough, considering the Bruins have had all three of their wins come in blowout fashion in the series, Vegas likes Vancouver's chances of blowing out the score more than Boston's. It's a 60 to 1 shot that the Bruins will score five or more goals, while it's just a 20 to 1 shot that the Canucks will do so.
My personal favorite prop bet on the evening: If Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is at the game, will he be wearing a Canucks jersey? Bodog says he must be seen live on television in the jersey, and they say that he won't be seen in a jersey. The moneyline sits at +200.
If the Bruins win, who will Zdeno Chara pass the Cup to first? Bodog favors Tim Thomas at 2/5, and Mark Recchi comes in a 5/1. Claude Julien is a distant 20/1, understandably. If the Canucks win, they like the odds of Henrik Sedin passing the Cup to his brother, Daniel, at 1/2. Roberto Luongo comes in behind Sami Salo at 11/2.
