Stanley Cup Champions Odds 4/26/18 Who do Oddsmakers Favor?

The 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs has finally set its entire field for the second round. Here’s an updated look at the odds to win the whole thing in 2018.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning are co-favored, as each is getting +425 odds to win. Other short odds to prevail are the Boston Bruins and Vegas Golden Knights, who each have +500 odds to win the Cup.

Tampa has the top seed in the Eastern Conference and they advanced to the second round thanks to a series win over the New Jersey Devils in five games. The Lightning will face the Bruins in the second round of the playoffs.

Nashville has the top seed in the Western Conference and the Predators are coming off a six-game series victory over the Colorado Avalanche to reach the second round. Nashville will face the Winnipeg Jets in the conference semifinals.

Boston is the lone team to advance to the second round that had to go seven games in the opening series. The Bruins needed seven to get past the Toronto Maple Leafs and will now have to give up home-ice against the Lightning.

The Vegas Golden Knights made their playoff debut in their inaugural season and they managed to sweep the Los Angeles Kings to advance to the second round. The Knight will take on the San Jose Sharks, another team that swept, in the conference semifinals.
