Oddsmakers have joined the Boston Bruins’ band of believers.
FanDuel Sportsbook on Thursday gave the Bruins 7/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup Final in 2020. These latest lines peg the Bruins as title favorites for the first time this season.
The Bruins’ 24 points tops the Eastern Conference and is second only to the St. Louis Blues, who have played two more games than Boston. The Bruins’ impressive start has prompted oddsmakers to propel them over Tampa Bay Lighting, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vegas Golden Knights and other teams whose odds have been better than or equal to Boston’s at various points this season.
Nearly three weeks after that, the Bruins deservedly stand alone as Stanley Cup favorites. They must maintain their on-ice dominance in order to keep hold of that “favorites” tag.
