2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Odds and Predictions

Thus beginneth the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup postseason. Sport betting sites favor the Tampa Bay Lightning, Winnipeg Jets, Nashville Predators, and San Jose Sharks to win on April 10th. Conversely, the Columbus Blue Jackets, St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars, and Vegas Golden Knights enter as underdogs. No surprises here. The best online sportsbooks have the Lightning pegged to win the Stanley Cup. Accordingly, Tampa Bay is expected to start off on the right foot against New York. And so on and so forth with the other matchups.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Tampa Bay Lightning

Date: Wednesday April 10, 2019

Time: 7:00 PM (EDT)

Venue: Amalie Arena Tampa, FL

Odds from BetAnySports.eu:

Columbus Blue Jackets +1½ -125 +201 Ov 6½ +100

Tampa Bay Lightning -1½ +105 -225 Un 6½ -110

Pick: According to sport betting sites, Columbus is 5-0 in their last five games on the road. And 7-1 in their last eight overall. Tampa Bay is 44-8 in their last 52 games versus Eastern Conference teams. And 40-13 in their last 53 at home. The over is 7-2 in their last nine games. The BJs are 0-6 in the last six encounters with the Lightning. As well as 3-10 in their last 13 trips to Tampa Bay. Sergei Bobrovski is the Philip Rivers of the NHL. Great in the regular season, not so much in the playoffs. Unless for once his greatness carries over into the postseason, the Lightning will take this one.

St. Louis Blues at Winnipeg Jets

Date: Wednesday April 10, 2019

Time: 8:00 PM (EDT)

Venue: Bell MTS Place Winnipeg, Manitoba

Odds from MyBookie.ag:

ST. LOUIS +1½ (-280) -115 O 5½ (+100)

WINNIPEG -1½ (+230) -105 U 5½ (-120)

Pick: St. Louis is 8-2 in their last 10 games. And 10-3 in their last 13 games playing a team with a winning record. Winnipeg is 2-5 in their last seven games overall. And 68-29 in their last 97 at home. The visiting team is 5-1 in the last six meetings between Blues and Jets. That last trend is noteworthy because Winnipeg is usually deadly ground for visitors. However, home advantage seems to be no advantage in this matchup. Therefore, the Jets’ 1.5-point favoritism might also be negated.

Dallas Stars at Nashville Predators

Date: Wednesday April 10, 2019

Time: 9:30 PM (EDT)

Venue: Bridgestone Arena Nashville, Tennessee

Odds from Intertops.eu:

Dallas Stars +1.5 1.48 O 5 1.86 2.45

Nashville Predators -1.5 2.75 U 5 1.95 1.60

Pick: Dallas is 4-1 in their last five games as underdogs. 28-59 in their last 87 games as a road dogs. And 7-2 in their last nine on the road. Nashville is 4-1 in their last five games as chalk. 15-7 in their last 22 postseason games as a fave. And 5-1 in their last six playing Western Conference teams. The Stars are 2-5 in the last seven visits to Nashville. As well as 3-8 in the last 11 matchups. Defense takes center stage in the postseason. And these two teams appear set to take that trend to the utmost conclusion. As a result, the best bet here is to take the under.

Vegas Golden Knights at San Jose Sharks

Date: Wednesday April 10, 2019

Time: 10:30 PM (EDT)

Venue: SAP Center San Jose, California

Odds from GTBets.eu:

VEGAS 1.5 (-225) +120 O 6 (-110)

SAN JOSE -1.5 (+185) -140 U 6 (-110)

Pick: Vegas is 4-1 in their last five games playing on three days’ rest or more. 5-17 in their last 22 games as dogs. And 0-4 in their last four on the road. Per sport betting sites, San Jose is 3-7 in their last 10 playing Western Conference. 2-5 in their last seven as home chalk. And 3-8 in their last 11 games as a favorite. The Golden Knights are the Rocky of the NHL. That’s why they’re my pick to win the Stanley Cup in their second season. Just like Rocky finally beat Apollo in Rocky II. Vegas is also my fave to pull the upset in Game 1 of this series.
