Stanley Cup MVP Betting Odds and Props

Tuukka Rask opened the NHL playoffs as the favorite to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup MVP.

Fast forward six weeks and another goalie is favored heading into the Stanley Cup final - the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist.

The New York Rangers puckstopper is +250 (5/2) per the latest lines posted Tuesday at Bovada. He is followed by Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar and Kings blueliner Drew Doughty, each at 4/1.

The series starts Wednesday with the Kings slight favorites. A Los Angeles sweep would pay 10/1, but the Rangers are 4-1 in their past five playoff road games.

--ARCHIVED ARTICLES---------------------------------------------------------

Sidney Crosby is favored to win the Hart Trophy as regular season MVP but he's only the second betting choice to win the same award in the playoffs. That's because goalie Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins is currently the 12/1 top choice in odds to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as NHL playoff MVP. Crosby is second at 15/1, according to Bovada.
