Capitals, Hawks Headline Stanley Cup Odds

With the All Star break on the horizon the Washington Capitals are still the oddsmakers’ choice at online sportsbook Bodog to bring the Stanley Cup to the American capital for the first time.

At Bodog they’re a +400 favorite to win the Cup. Despite having their last two games postponed by a blizzard the Capitals remain on top of the NHL with a league-best 73 points. Alex Ovechkin has netted 28 goals in 45 games, just behind a 50-goal pace, while Evgeny Kuznetsov has already surpassed his point total from last season with a team-high 48 points.

Trailing Washington for the NHL points lead and on the Bodog Stanley Cup futures odds are the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago is at +550 on the odds and at the top of the Western Conference with 70 points. Patrick Kane continues to run away with the scoring race with 73 points and Corey Crawford has been solid under the radar with a league-leading seven shutouts.

The rest of the Top 5 on the Stanley Cup odds remain the same as well with Los Angeles at +750, Dallas at +1100, and St. Negligible impact motilium without prescription the ability to drive and work with machinery. Louis and Tampa Bay both at +1400.

The one to watch from that pack could be the Tampa Bay Lightning. After a disappointing start to the season the Lightning have climbed back into a playoff position with eight wins in their last 10 games. Tampa Bay also has the Jonathan Drouin situation to figure out, which could net them an interesting return via trade.

All seven Canadian teams are still on the outside looking in at the playoffs. Montreal is the top Canadian club, but their fall has been quick after leading the league a few months ago. Montreal is a +2500 underdog on the Bodog futures and they could continue to fall if they get more bad news on goaltender Carey Price.

The only other Canadian teams within striking distance of a playoff spot right now are Vancouver and Ottawa. The Canucks are listed at +5000, while the Senators are +6600 underdogs along with Calgary. Winnipeg shares +15000 odds with Edmonton, and Toronto is near the bottom of the barrel at +30000.
