Stacked Lightning are the Team to Beat in Stanley Cup Odds

Odds to Win the 2019-20 Stanley Cup

Although Tampa Bay suffered a historic first-round sweep at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2018-19 NHL playoffs, oddsmakers expect the Lightning to lift the Stanley Cup for the second time in franchise history as the Bolts are the +750 front-runners to go all the way this year.

The Toronto Maple Leafs (+900), Vegas Golden Knights (+1000), Boston Bruins (+1100), Colorado Avalanche (+1400), St. Louis Blues (+1500), Florida Panthers (+1600), Nashville Predators (+1800), Dallas Stars (+1800) and San Jose Sharks (+1800) trail the Lightning on the oddsboard at Bovada.

Are the Leafs Getting Too Much Respect?

It’s interesting to see the Leafs above the Bruins on the oddsboard for a variety of reasons. Toronto is coming off its second straight first-round playoff loss to the B’s, and it looks like the Leafs and star restricted free agent Mitch Marner aren’t close on an agreement. The Bruins are an aging club, but given their track record against the Leafs and their run to the Stanley Cup Final, I wouldn’t bet against them in the postseason this year.

If you’re surprised to see the Panthers so high, you shouldn’t be. Florida landed star goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and improved its defensive core in the offseason, and Joel Quenneville – one of the top coaches in the NHL – is set to make his South Beach debut this season. The Panthers could already score with ease, so I think the new additions will make them a legitimate playoff contender in 2019-20.
