Chicago Is Favored To Repeat As Stanley Cup Champs


Despite losing five of their past seven games and being fourth in the NHL in points percentage, the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks remain the favorite to win the Stanley Cup.

In the latest updated odds from the betting website Bovada, the Hawks didn’t see their odds move from the 11/2 mark they were at previously, however the odds on the Penguins and Blues improved to being just a shade lower than the odds of the Blackhawks.

Meanwhile it’s surprising to see the Kings remain as high as they do given that they are close to missing on the playoffs as a whole but they are a team that’s just built for playoff hockey and the belief in them is a testament to their ability to possess the puck, lack of scoring be darned.
