Caesars Sportsbook: Odds
Game 1: Avs -180
Total: 7 goals
Wyshynski's pick: Avalanche 1.5 games over Oilers
It was a lot of fun.It's not just him vs. He's right. He is right. vs. McDavid. Jared Bednar, Coach has not hesitated to go power-vs..power and put the MacKinnon and his top defensive pairing against the McDavid lines in the regular season. The Avalanche are clearly ahead in depth vs.depth to decide the series. The Avs are playing. The Avs are on an offensive and just beat a St. Louis team six times. This series is expected to end in five games (+300), according to the shortest odds. I am comfortable betting the 1.5 games regardless of whether it is in five or six.
Game 1: Lightning -125
Total: 5.5 goals
Wyshynski's pick: Rangers +1.5 games over Lightning (-120)
The Tampa Bay goalie and Tampa goalie are in a goaltending duelNew York's MVP Candidate This could be a game for the ages. They could play a key role in a series that could end in a drawn-out or dramatic upset for the Rangers. Rangers fans have much to enjoy, including home-ice advantage, rolling into series with Game 7 momentum and a general “no stop” attitude. The Rangers still have problems at 5-on-5, but they are working on it. The Lightning could also exploit the weakness in the first round — Vasilevskiy is not Louis Dominque. I prefer the +1.5 here for upset insurance and in case it goes seven. Even though my official prediction is Lightning in six.
Stanley Cup: Lightning Over Avalanche (+300).
The third-peat is second in Stanley Cup exacta betting, after the Lightning being defeated by the Avalanche. The Lightning aren't settling for less than a threepeat, even though the Avalanche look like a wagon. This is a great option to try.
Conn Smythe Trophy – Connor McDavid (+650).
McDavid has been credited as the Edmonton Oilers' “win or loss” run. This is despite being tied with Leon Draisaitl's 26 points and identical stats (seven goals, 19 assists) McDavid will lead the charge if the Oilers win over the Avalanche. McDavid may win the Conn Smythe if Edmonton plays for it, even if Edmonton loses.
