The Colorado Avalanche are -180 favorites to win the Stanley Cup in SuperBook Colorado. This type of line is fairly consistent across the other sportsbooks as the sages believe that the Avs will be the next champions. Against a two-time Stanley Cup champion, I was a little surprised the odds were so high.
But the Avalanche were the favorites, or whatever, pretty much all season long in sports betting. By the way, a -180 line means you need to bet $180 to win a $100 win – so you would get a total of $280 back for a winning streak bet. If they were +180, you would only have to bet $100 to win a $180 win.
The Lightning are indeed +160 to win the Stanley Cup Finals. Gambling has become a big part of ice hockey. The numbers go up. The league and the teams are now involved. Like it or not, it’s here to stay.
