It appears that the Bruins’ recent run has inspired a few more believers out in Las Vegas.
Bovada, which frequently shares its NHL odds with us, released its newest rankings today, and it appears that the oddsmakers are feeling black and gold.
1. Tampa Bay Lightning - 6/1
2. Vegas Golden Knights - 6/1
3. Boston Bruins - 15/2
T-4. Nashville Predators - 14/1
T-4. Pittsburgh Penguins - 14/1
T-4. Toronto Maple Leafs - 14/1
T-4. Washington Capitals - 14/1
That’s right, YOUR Boston Bruins currently have the third-highest Stanley Cup odds. What a time to be alive.
What’s impressive is that the team was given 20/1 odds in the rankings that came out at the beginning of January, and 33/1 odds at the beginning of December.
Obviously these odds really don’t mean much, but it’s fun to take a look at them. In all likelihood, this move has been spurred by more people placing bets on the Bruins.
Hey, optimism is contagious!
The B’s were also given 4/1 odds to win the East (second), while Tuukka Rask’s Vezina odds went from off the board to 25/1.
