Stanley Cup Final Betting Odds: St. Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins

  • Boston Bruins odds: -150
  • St. Louis Blues odds: +130

The Boston Bruins are -150 favorites over the St. Louis Blues in the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.

At -150 the Bruins have an implied probability of 58% (without accounting for the vigorish). At +130, bookmakers give the Blues a 42% chance to win their first ever Stanley Cup.

The Bruins, who swept the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals, will be on 10 days rest by the time the Stanley Cup starts on Monday, May 27 at TD Garden in Boston.

The B’s entered the season with 11-1 odds and finished with the third-best record in the NHL at 49-24-9.

The Blues were 30-1 on Opening Night but found themselves in last place in the entire NHL on Jan. 2. At that time the Blues were as high as 250-1 to win the Stanley Cup. St. Louis turned its season around with a 30-10-5 run before defeating Winnipeg, Dallas and San Jose en route to the Final.

This is the Blues’ first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 49 years. The last time St. Louis made it to the championship round was in 1969-70. That season, the Blues were swept by the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final. St. Louis, which entered the league in 1967, is tied with Toronto for the longest Stanley Cup drought in the NHL.
