Stanley Cup Final NHL Betting Tips For Wednesday, May 31

Jon and DerekOur Stanley Cup Final bet on the Penguins got off to a good start Monday, even though Pittsburgh was badly outplayed.

It was fascinating to see Jake Guentzel score the game winner late in regulation in Game 1. He’d been in a slump over his previous 8 games (0 goals, 3 assists) and there was even talk that he might be a healthy scratch for the series opener. Now he not only leads all playoff goal scorers with 10, he’s also got 4 game winners in the post-season.

If he can score a few more goals in this series (possibly another winner) and the Penguins claim the Cup, the rookie may even work his way into Conn Smythe Trophy conversation. As of yesterday, he paid +2500 to win the playoff MVP award.

On to tonight, where a Penguins victory would give them a 2-0 series lead heading to Nashville for the next 2 games. That would force the Preds to win 4 of the next 5 games to claim the Cup, a feat that only 5 of the 50 teams ever to go down 0-2 in the Stanley Cup Final have been able to accomplish.

It’s obviously a huge swing game in the series, and we like the Pens to get the job done again tonight. Good luck if you’re tailing along.
