While all five of those
The NHL is heading into the postseason with a lot of questions, but the odds show that the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins are odd on favorites to win it all. The 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs begin soon and it could be a very interesting postseason in the NHL.
The Nashville Predators are the number one seed in the Western Conference, but some experts have questioned if they’ll be able to make a run to win it all. The Predators have been red-hot, as they have won 10 of their last 11 games, but it’s not clear if anyone can catch them in the West.
The Winnipeg Jets, who finished second in the Central Division, have been playing well and many think they are a threat to win the West and make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Jets faced off against the Predators during the regular season and split their four meetings with two wins apiece.
The other team that has emerged as a threat to pull off an upset in Nashville are the San Jose Sharks. They are currently fifth in the Western Conference, but they’ve been playing well and they have a ton of playoff experience on their roster. They were also able to defeat Nashville twice during the regular season.
In addition to this trio of teams, there are plenty of other
The Stanley Cup playoffs are here and the odds to win it all have been updated at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
The Nashville Predators have the best odds, but the Boston Bruins made a big move after acquiring Rick Nash from the Rangers on Sunday night. The Bruins are now 14-1 to win it all, tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for second-best odds.
The Predators (11-4) are followed by the Winnipeg Jets (10-1), who also made a trade for Paul Stastny before Monday’s deadline. The defending champion Penguins (12-1) and Golden Knights (16-1) round out the top five favorites.
Here is a look at all 31 teams’ odds of winning this year’s Stanley Cup.
The 2018 NHL playoffs are finally here. That means it’s time to make the picks and predictions that will make me look like a genius or a moron by the end of June. I’m so excited I can barely stand myself.
Even though half the teams in the league make the playoffs every year, only two teams have won the Stanley Cup twice in the past decade. A handful of other teams have managed to repeat as conference champions in that time, but out of all those conference finalists, only two — Pittsburgh (in 2016 and 2017) and Chicago (in 2013 and 2014) — made it to at least two straight Finals.
It basically takes an act of Congress to repeat as Stanley Cup champs these days; even the Crosby/Malkin Penguins couldn’t quite get it done last year, getting bounced in the second round by Matt Murray’s hometown team.
Pittsburgh has been one of the most successful franchises over that span, but they haven’t been able to sustain their success long enough to become a true dynasty. The next-best bet might be Chicago, who have three Cups since 2010 but missed the playoffs this season.
The Capitals are back again after another regular-season romp, but they’re still looking for their first championship in
