The Highlights

  • The Washington Capitals have won their first Stanley Cup in team history.
  • The Tampa Bay Lightning (8-1) are the favorites to win the 2018-19 Stanley Cup, according to NHL futures from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 10-1 next season, while the Capitals are 12-1 to go back-to-back.

Ovi did it! Following a  Game 5 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Washington Capitals have secured their first Stanley Cup in team history. Unfortunately for Vegas, the Golden Knights’ Cinderella run has come to an end and Nevada bookmakers are collectively breathing sighs of relief.

Odds to win the 2018-19 Stanley Cup are already available at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook and neither of this year’s final participants are listed as the favorite. In fact, that honor goes to the Tampa Bay Lightning at 8-1.

The Golden Knights are tied with four other teams at 10-1, with the Capitals just behind at 12-1.

Here’s a full rundown of Westgate’s current odds:
