Sitting with a 40-15-3 record (83 points) the Pittsburgh Penguins are currently the top chalk (+550) to capture the Stanley Cup in the entire NHL. What’s not to like? Boasting the leagues top scorer, Sidney Crosby (78 points in 58 games) plus Evgeni Malkin (58 points in 47 games) and Chris Kunitz (55 points in 58 games) the Pens own a five point lead on the Boston Bruins in the chase for the Eastern Conference regular season title. The Bruins (+900) and Tampa Bay Lightning (+1600) round out the top three contenders in the relatively weak Eastern Conference.

San Jose (+1000) along with Colorado and Los Angeles – who both sport a +1600 money line price, round out the Gang of Six from the Wild, Wild West.

If you want to back your favorite Cup contender at these somewhat inflated prices, that currently favor the bettors, the time to act is now. Speaking of acting – we just dropped a Borden on the high flying St. Louis Blues to capture the 2013-14 NHL Stanley Cup Championship.
