Vegas odds makers like the Blackhawks to win the Stanley Cup, but it's not exactly a ringing endorsement.
Predicting the Stanley Cup winner is a virtual tossup when the most consistent team all season is matched up against the hottest team in the playoffs.
But the Las Vegas odds makers have taken all of that into consideration and made the Chicago Blackhawks the odds-on favorite -- albeit a slight one at -140 -- to win the Stanley Cup over the Boston Bruins.
Chicago is listed as the favorite at most sports books, which means bettors believe the teams are easily matched.
Either way, something has to give in this series. Chicago is 6-0 when listed as the favorite and Boston is 4-0 in the playoffs as an underdog.
Vegas, being what is, also offers opportunities to bet on additional game-related topics, such as which team will score first, total number of goals, or even the highest-scoring period.
But it's safe to say the only numbers Hawks fans are interested in is which team wins four games first.
