Here Are Bruins’ Odds Of Winning Atlantic Division, Stanley Cup Final


The Bruins are on a roll lately, winning six of their seven games since the NHL All-Star break.

One oddsmaker projects Boston’s success could last through the remainder of the regular season — and beyond.

Bovada has the Bruins as the current favorite to win the Atlantic Division at -120, according to Odds Shark. The Tampa Bay Lightning aren’t far behind, however, at -110.

The next-closest team is the Toronto Maple Leafs at +2200.

But Bovada projects the Bruins success could reach even farther than claiming the division. Boston has the second-best odds to win the Stanley Cup in 2020 at +700. The Lightning are the favorite at +550.

The Colorado Avalanche and Washington Capitals also are in the running at +750 and +800, respectively, with the St. Louis Blues and the Pittsburgh Penguins close behind at +1000.

It’s not often a team reaches a Stanley Cup Final two seasons in a row, but the Bruins certainly have the chops to do so. On top of having two of the best forwards in the NHL in David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand, Boston has the league’s hottest goaltender in Tuukka Rask, who sports a league-best .930 save percentage, and a quality backup in Jaroslav Halak, who’s .921 save percentage ranks 10th-best.

There still are 24 games left on Boston’s regular-season schedule, however, so there’s plenty of time for things to shift. And in the NHL, anything is possible. Just ask the Blues, who sat in last place in the Central Division in Jan. 2019 before surging their way to the franchise’s first-ever Stanley Cup championship a few months later.
