The Insomniac – Betting tips for all you sleep-deprived punters
Always find it hard to sleep on a Monday night after a stressful first day back at work? Not to worry, our resident night-owl shares your problem and has found the perfect solution – game six of the Stanley Cup series.
The added beauty of this evening’s event is that it is live on ESPN America from midnight, meaning that it gives you something easy to follow and lively to watch during those hours you usually spend hopelessly tossing and turning, as well of course as an opportunity to make money.
Ask any ice hockey fan and they will tell you that this is as exciting as the NHL season gets, the moment that the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks have been building towards since October.
Vancouver Canucks at Boston Bruins
The Canadians are heading to the TD Garden with a 3-2 advantage that means that victory in this sixth encounter of a series of seven will earn them their first ever Stanley Cup.
Home advantage has proven absolutely crucial in the series so far with each of the first five matches being won by the hosts, and for that reason 23/20 looks a huge price on the Bruins – chasing their first trophy since 1972 – to triumph in the hour.
The Canucks’ two trips to Massachusetts so far have ended in an aggregate 12-1 hammering and as the Bruins’ winning streak at the Garden now stretches five games, with nine of their last ten in front of their fans ending successfully, that should continue.
