We are down to the final four and the conference finals in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and have two very compelling series remaining. Both of the top seeds in the two conferences are alive, as well as the defending Stanley Cup champions.
In the East, it’s the Pittsburgh Penguins taking on the Boston Bruins. In the West, the Chicago Blackhawks match up with the Los Angeles Kings.
It was a fun ride in the conference semifinals, especially in the Western Conference. Both the Kings and Blackhawks won in seven games. Chicago actually came back from a 3-1 deficit against the Detroit Red Wings to claim the series 4-3 with three-straight wins, including Game 7 in overtime.
These two conference finals series get underway over the weekend on Saturday. Until then, oddsmakers at Bovada Sportsbook have released a neat betting line. This wager is a bit different from a futures line on the odds to win the Stanley Cup, or a series price or game line. This bet asks to predict the exact Stanley Cup Finals matchup that we will see in the next round.
There are obviously only four possibilities, with one of those four set as the assertive favorite. That would be a potential matchup between the Blackhawks and the Penguins, the top seeds from each conference.
A bet on a Chicago vs. Pittsburgh Stanley Cup Finals series is paying out near even money, going off at 7/5. that means every $5 wagered would profit $7 should these two teams meet for the championship.
A matchup between the Penguins and the Kings is next on the list, going off at 5/2. That is more than a 2 to 1 payout, with bettors able to make a nice profit margin. And it’s always tough to get against the defending champions, even if they are going up against the No.1 seed in Chicago.
A Bruins vs. Blackhawks finals series is paying out at more than 4 to 1, going off at 13/4 at Bovada. Rounding things out is a Boston and Los Angeles Stanley Cup Finals, which is set at 5/1.
Both of these conference finals series will have the puck dropped on Saturday. The Blackhawks and Kings Game 1 can be seen on the NBC Sports Network at 5pm ET, while the Penguins and Bruins will play at 8pm ET, with coverage on NBC. This betting line will up until Chicago and Los Angeles begin their Game 1 on Saturday. LatestBettingOdds.com has these odds listed out below for you.
