Vancouver vs Detroit Sunday NHL Online Betting Odds
With Spring Training in full force, there are plenty of sports betting options out there now. We will stick with the NHL though, looking at the Vancouver Canucks and the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, February 24, 2013. Faceoff is scheduled for 5 PM ET from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. We will back the visiting Canucks.
Vancouver Canucks: Out to add to excellent start
Vancouver has begun the season on a 10-3-4 run, which is good for 24 points. They are not far behind the Chicago Blackhawks and will try to climb the standings ladder this evening when they visit Detroit. The Canucks have been nearly unstoppable in their last 10 games played, recording a 7-1-2 record. On the road this season, the Canucks are an impressive 5-1-2. They have a 6-0-1 record within their division.
Detroit Red Wings: Making up ground in the division
Detroit struggled out of the gate this season, amassing an overall record of 8-7-3, which is good for 19 points. At home they have a 6-4-1 mark and are just 4-4-2 in their previous 10 games played. They are 12 points behind the Central Division leading Blackhawks, which means they need to start winning games right now to make up as much ground as possible. The Red Wings are 1-5-4 in their last 10 meetings with the Canucks.
In what would have been an incredibly exciting matchup last year, the Red Wings host the Canucks on Sunday evening for a Western Conference game. This can still be an exciting game, but the Red Wings have struggled a lot this season. The sportsbook found at WilliamHill.com has the Canucks as -1.5 (+230) favorites. We will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the spread and the visiting Canucks on Sunday evening.
