2020 Stanley Cup odds: Bruins and Golden Knights lead final odds after NHL playoff update


The NHL has become the first major American sports league to announce its intention to return Tuesday with live sports matches. While fans may have to wait a while for the action to come back completely, there is at least one plan in place for the season to resume this calendar year.

The plan in question is one that gives up the rest of the regular season and goes straight to the playoffs – a pool of 24 teams for the Stanley Cup, to be exact. With this news in mind, it means there will be new chances on which of the 24 playoff-related teams has the best chance of lifting this famous cup above their heads on the ice.

Unsurprisingly for those who have paid attention to the season, the odds are particularly favorable for the Boston Bruins at +550. When the NHL announced it would be paused due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Bruins were leading the NHL with 100 points total this season.

Tied with Boston, the Vegas Golden Knights, who also have +550 odds to win everything, and finished third in the Western Conference total points at the time of suspension, with 82. Before them, the champions from last year’s Stanley Cup, the St. Louis Blues (94 points) and the Colorado Avalanche (92 points). The Blues are seated at +800 while the Avalanches are seated at +850.
