Updated NHL Stanley Cup Odds: There's still big value to be had with Maple Leafs, Canadiens, Jets, Islanders
The Colorado Avalanche remain the favorites to make the final and win the Cup.
We are nearly done with the first round of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and there are just nine teams left (as of Sunday, May 30) that can see their name engraved on the cup.
There is still some value out there if you want to bet on the futures market for both the teams that will make the finals, and the team that will hoist the trophy.
Right now, the Boston Bruins are the biggest movers, up 1-0 against New York and now are one of the two favorites to reach the finals, ahead of the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay.
Colorado, which starts its second round series Sunday with Vegas, is the favorite to reach (-106) and win (+200) the cup.
If you think that Toronto has a shot to come out of its side of the bracket, you might want to jump on the Maple Leafs now, before their first round Game 7 with Montreal. If Toronto wins, those odds should plummet.
So here are the odds for the eight teams left to reach the final, and also to win the Stanley Cup
