Stanley Cup Contenders: Bodog Conference Championship Odds Update
Being as the “playoffs” to make the playoffs are in full swing, today we look at updated odds to win the Eastern and Western Conference Championships currently posted at the Bodog online sportsbook. While the prices point to it being a two horse race in the East, the West is still wide open as of March 16, 2014. It’s an amazing time to be a fan of puck.
Pittsburgh and Boston: Top Eastern Conference contenders
Owning huge leads in the Metropolitan and Atlantic divisions, Pittsburgh and Boston are now focused on locking up home ice advantage in the NHL playoffs. The Bruins (45-17-5) currently own a razor thin one point lead over the Penguins (45-17-4) who have a game in hand. Foreshadowing a Pittsburgh vs. Boston Eastern Conference Final, Bodog bookmakers have posted both clubs with +200 ML to represent the East in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Western Conference: St. Louis is top chalk in wild west playoff race
Though we normally wonder who will survive the heated playoff battles in the East, there has been a role reversal in the NHL this season as six teams can be viewed as legitimate contenders in the wild West. After acquiring netminder Ryan Miller at the trade deadline, St. Louis has seen their stock rise to top chalk with a +275 ML price. Defending Champion Chicago (+350) along with Anaheim and San Jose (both +450) are right behind the Blues.
