Stanley Cup Betting - Vancouver Canucks v Boston Bruins

The Stanley Cup Finals are on the horizon and it will involve a pair of teams who have not played in a Stanley Cup for over 15 years.

The series is just the latest pairing in a postseason of unpredictable upsets, comebacks and rallies.

Think the Vancouver Canucks will be able to avenge their 1994 Stanley Cup Final loss at the hands of the New York Rangers?

The Boston Bruins also have been harboring resentment over the years, held Cupless since 1972. The last time the Bruins even made a trip to the Finals was in 1990.

Who will break the drought first? Bet on the NHL playoffs with Bodog.

Canucks Favoured to Win

According to the odds makers at Bodog, the Vancouver Canucks sit in the driver's seat with home ice advantage and -200 odds to win Game 1.

All things considered, Vancouver also sits as strong favourites to lift the cup with -250 odds of winning the Stanley Cup outright.

Latest Stanley Cup Championship Odds :
- Vancouver Canucks 1.40 (-250)
- Boston Bruins 3.00 (+200)

But that's not to say that the Bruins are without a legitimate shot of contending. After winning the Northeast Division with 103 points this season, the Bruins took down both of last season's Eastern Conference Finalists  and a surging Tampa Bay Lightning squad.

The talking is almost over with Game 1 fast approaching - so it's time to weigh in.
