NHL Odds: Detroit Red Wings vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

 After taking care of the Oilers on Saturday, the Detroit Red Wings will travel to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday for a NHL game enjoying great interest from fans and bettors alike, here you will find the latest odds on the Detroit vs. Pittsburgh match-up. There is no surprise that the Red Wings vs. Penguins is drawing so much attention, it's ranked the 4th most bet on event with the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker (official website), where the current NHL Stanley Cup camp is small favorite - this will be the first time the Detroit Red Wings (34-11-7) visit the Pittsburgh Penguins (26-23-5) since the Stanley Cup Final game 6. And with the 7-6 victory over Detroit at home last November, the Penguins are sure to give the Red Wings the run for their money.

 But the odds makers at Bookmaker have listed the Red Wings as the favorite team to win this NHL game, although a small one. The Detroit Red Wings are holding odds -140 to win the game, while their last year Stanley Cup contender is small underdog - the Pittsburgh Penguins are sitting on +120 odds on a victory on Sunday night. The odds makers are also looking forward to a high-power game, the Red Wings vs. Penguins total is currently at 6 goals, with "over" being -130 favorite, while "under" 6 goals will pay out on +110 odds. Keep in mind that the total has gone OVER in 5 of Detroit's last 5 games, while the total has gone OVER in 4 of Pittsburgh's last 6 games. Also, the Red Wings are 9-4 SU in its last 13 games when playing the Penguins. In Detroit Tomas Holmstrom and Darren McCarty are out indefinitely, both with hernia issues, while Johan Franzen and Derek Meech are day-to-day. And at the Penguins, Ruslan Fedotenko and Sergei Gonchar are out indefinitely, while Mike Zigomanis is out for the NHL season.
