Odds for the Stanley Cup in 2013

Recommended Posts

Latest Stanley Cup odds see Minnesota and Carolina’s chances improve:

At the conclusion of the Stanley Cup finals, online gambling site Bovada put out their initial odds to win the 2013 Stanley Cup. That list saw the Penguins as the early leader to lift the Cup and after their latest update that’s still the case, but we’ve seen some changes thanks to trades and free agency.

Minnesota made their big splash signing both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter and thanks to that they went from being 75/1 shots to win it all to 18/1. Carolina went from 50/1 odds to 22/1 thanks to landing Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin while the New York Rangers saw a mild improvement thanks to acquiring Rick Nash going from 12/1 to 9/1.

Oddly enough, the biggest improvement in odds outside of Minnesota belonged to Edmonton. The Oilers went from 60/1 shots to win the Cup to 30/1. Who knew Nail Yakupov was that much of a difference maker?

It’s not all sunshine and roses, however, as Nashville went from 18/1 shots to 25/1 after losing Suter. Just think of how bad it would’ve been had they not matched Shea Weber‘s offer sheet from Philly.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were already a bad bet the first time around at 75/1 but after dealing Nash to New York, their odds got longer at 100/1, the worst in the league.

Here’s the rest of the updated odds for your entertainment only purposes perusal with what they were on June 12 in parenthesis.

I feel that Pittsburgh got stronger for years to come at draft day making two strong selections in the first round. They still have the best 3rd line centre in Sutter. Their defense if weak now but with Morrow, Maata and Pouliot all going to become strong defensemen and Letang still young their in a good position for 3-4 years not next year. Not sure if they should be the top team, the same goes for NYR. Of course if you have CROSBY and MALKIN, you can do anything.
