  • The Tampa Bay Lightning are favorites to win the 2019-2020 Stanley Cup.
  • The St. Louis Blues, fresh off their first ever championship, are sixth at 14-1.
  • Check out the full odds below.

The St. Louis Blues may be Stanley Cup Champions, but they aren’t favored by oddsmakers to repeat. In fact, the Blues are not even among the top five favorites, sitting sixth at 14-1.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, who went wire-to-wire as Cup Favorites in the 2018-19 season, are once again atop the board at 6-1. The Bolts set an NHL record this season with 62 wins and 128 points, the most in the Salary Cap Era.

The Vegas Golden Knights are second favorites at 7-1 and the Boston Bruins, the team the Blues defeated in Game 7 to win their first ever Stanley Cup, are 10-1. The B’s are tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Colorado Avalanche for third-shortest odds. That means that three of the top five favorites in 2019-2020 play in the Atlantic Division, which will likely be a gauntlet again next season.

The Ottawa Senators are the biggest longshots and the only team offered at triple-digit odds in the early market.
