Posted by Derrick Harper on May 8, 2018 in

The National Hockey League will wrap up their round 2 and will be down to 4 teams remaining by the end of the week. Before that though, some big games must be played in Round 2. After each day, Vegas releases their NHL Stanley Cup Odds. The updated lines to win it all heading into Sunday’s action are below.

Updated NHL Stanley Cup Odds – May 8th Edition

Tampa Bay Lightning +270

The Lightning is at the top of the odds to win it all. Tampa Bay is one win away from taking down the Boston Bruins. Tampa Bay can score the puck, and their defense has been relentless throughout the postseason. They started the season at +1200 odds, and are the favorites as we approach Round 3.

Vegas Golden Knights +430

With each win coming from Sin City, the Golden Knights move one step closer to absolute chaotic history. An expansion team is now 9 wins away from winning the Stanley Cup. The Golden Knights will have two chances to eliminate the Sharks, and then get a shot at either Winnipeg or Nashville.

Nashville Predators +470

Despite trailing 3-2 in the series to the Jets, oddsmakers are still giving Nashville better odds to win the Stanley Cup. The Game 5 loss at home seemed to be a killer for the Predators and their confidence. Maybe a bounce back can happen on the road, and then get a make or break Game 7.

Winnipeg Jets +600

This team is really good. Folks are finding out that the Jets finishing with the second most points in the NHL was not a fluke. Winnipeg gets a chance to eliminate the Predators at home and head to the Western Conference Finals.

Pittsburgh Penguins +700

Another case where the team trailing in the series has better odds. The two time defending Stanley Cup Champions have a simple goal. Win back to back games, and take down Washington. One loss – and they are done.

Washington Capitals +755

Is this the season that Washington finally gets over the hump? One win away from getting by the second round is a huge start.

The Capitals are among the Stanley Cup Odds favorites.

San Jose Sharks +1900

Interesting odds here. The Sharks are a loss away from being eliminated, but back to back wins and they are onto the next round. San Jose is talented enough to roll off several wins in a row. The Sharks started the season at +2000 to win it all.

Boston Bruins +3050

The Bruins are in trouble. Boston will need to beat the top team in the Eastern Conference three straight times to get out of the second round. Boston just cannot seem to solve the riddle of what Tampa Bay is doing in this series.

There is a look at the Updated NHL Stanley Cup Odds. We are looking forward to seeing how the postseason plays out in the NHL. Best of luck with all your NHL Stanley Cup Odds Betting Enjoy the games!
