NHL Betting Odds Game 3 on the Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings


The Detroit Red Wings host the Chicago Blackhawks as we head into Game 3 of this series. Let’s take a look at this Game and NHL playoffs odds at the sportsbook.

OddsThe Chicago Blackhawks are the President’s Trophy winner and also the prime seed in the Western Conference. They even have closely-held series against the Detroit Red Wings recently.

The Chicago Blackhawks won the first game of this series by a score of 4-1 and it wouldn’t even have been that close if not for the goaltending of Detroit’s Jimmy Howard. “Much better from our prior series,” head coach Joel Quenneville said. “I thought what we’re talking about in our team game was in place. Had some pace, had some speed, zone time, and I thought everybody contributed.”

Game 1 of the series on Wednesday was the 800th game all-time between the two teams. “I thought that was probably our best game of the postseason so far,” Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford said, “A lot of pressure, a lot of pucks at the net. We were skating, moving the puck great. I thought it was one of our better performances overall.”

The Chicago Blackhawks had not played in almost a week but they didn’t show much rust in the win in Game 1 over the Detroit Red Wings. This is the first playoff series between the two teams since 2009 and it is likely to be the last for a long time with the Detroit Red Wings moving to the Eastern Conference next season. Game 2 of the series was set for Saturday in Chicago with the series moving to Detroit for Game 3 on Monday night.

This game on Monday night can be seen on the NBC Sports Network. The Chicago Blackhawks won’t mind going to Detroit for the next two games considering they have won 9 of the last 10 in Detroit. Four of the last five in Detroit have gone under the total.

NHL Playoff Picks – I like the Chicago Blackhawks to continue their road success so I will lay the small number in NHL playoffs odds and take them on Monday night.
