Stanley Cup Odds: Stars, Habs, Rangers Lead Way

The Dallas Stars continue to be the favorites to skate away with the Stanley Cup at season’s end; at Bodog you’ll find Dallas atop the latest Stanley Cup future odds at a line of +650.

That shouldn’t surprise anyone considering the Stars’ recent hot streak, that has really been going on all season. The Stars have won five straight and at 17-4 on the season they’re tied for the NHL lead with 34 points.

Also currently sitting with 34 points are the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs are right behind Dallas on the odds at +800, a slot they share with the New York Rangers. Montreal welcomed back Hart and Vezina Trophy winner Carey Price late last week and he backstopped them to a pair of wins over the Islanders.

The Rangers had their nine-game winning streak snapped last week, but rebounded quickly with another win and have won 10 of their last 11. With a 15-3-2 record on the season and 32 points they’re right behind Montreal and Dallas for the league lead.

Rounding out the rest of the Top 5 is Washington at +1000, while Chicago and Los Angeles share +1200 odds. The Capitals are 3-3 in their last six games but they outscored their opponents 18-13 during that span.

Chicago looked like they were ready to string together a nice win streak but instead followed up three straight wins with back-to-back losses to Calgary and Vancouver. The Kings have also lost their last two games to Carolina and Detroit.

One team that has made quite the rise up the NHL futures in the last week is San Jose. Just a week ago the Sharks were a +2800 underdog to claim their first Cup in franchise history. Those odds have since been cut in half with San Jose currently listed at +1400 at Bodog.

The Sharks have climbed to the top of the Pacific Division after winning six straight. San Jose also has Logan Couture waiting in the wings while recovering from a broken leg he suffered earlier this season.
