The chase for the Cup begins Wednesday night, and the next two months will be wild. To make it even more exciting, why not try betting on a Stanley Cup future?
It’s not a surprise to see the Lightning as the favorite, as Tampa Bay tied the NHL record for most wins in a regular season with the 1995–96 Red Wings. Meanwhile, the defending champion Capitals have the seventh-lowest odds at 11/1.
Here are bookmaker William Hill’s current odds for every playoff team to wind up with Lord Stanley:
Golden Knights +800
Maple Leafs 20/1
Blue Jackets 30/1
