Chicago Favored in Cup Final Odds

Chicago may feature a lineup of young players, but oddsmakers think they are wise enough to do what 49 consecutive BlackHawk teams could not - win the Stanley Cup.

Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.ag for example have them favored for just about every Stanley Cup bet you can make. In Game 1, they are -170 chalk. For the series, they are -250 chalk. Jonathan Toews is the runaway favorite at the moment to win the Conn Smythe Trophy (NHL playoff MVP odds).
