Las Vegas sportsbook Bovada has just released their latest odds for each team winning the 2019-2020 Stanley Cup. As always, a reminder about Las Vegas odds/lines. They typically reflect the amount of money being placed, or anticipated to be placed on a team, and not a specific prognostication or prediction as to who will win the Stanley Cup.
The Bruins, Capitals and Avalanche all sit at +800 odds. (In other words, you would need to bet $100 to win $800, or simply 8 to 1 odds.) Here are the latest odds for all 31 teams. (Odds courtesy of Odds Shark.)
The Capitals began the season near the middle of the pack with regards to odds for winning the Stanley Cup, at 18 to 1.
Back in early August, Vegas oddsmakers set the Washington Capitals’ 2019-20 NHL Over/Under point total at 97.5 points, according to SportsNettingDime. That would be their lowest point total for the Capitals since the 2013-14 season. However, the line was tops in the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals currently have 53 points in 35 games, and on pace for 124 points this season.
