For the first time in the playoffs the Kings have home ice advantage and the oddsmakers have them as a decent sized favourite to win the cup. At Bodog Canada the Kings opened as a 1.59 favorite to win it all with the Rangers paying 2.50 to take the series. The odds for game #1 of the NHL Finals are also posted with similar odds to the series (LAK-1.65 & NYR-2.35). The over / under for game #1 of the Finals is 5 goals favoured slightly towards the under. Here are the Current NHL Stanley Cup Finals Betting Odds.
Our Pick To Win the 2014 NHL Playoffs
Both teams are solid on the defensive side but surprisingly the Kings offence has been lightning it up leading the playoffs in scoring. The Kings went to a game #7 in three consecutive series’ but it isn’t that big of a deal as they never left their state for the first 2 rounds. We think the Kings offence will be too much for the Rangers. We’ll take the Kings to win the Stanel Cup for 1.59 at Bodog Canada.
