The Boston Bruins are looking to return to the Stanley Cup Finals after falling short of a championship last season, and currently have the best odds to hoist the Stanley Cup at +750, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While the Bruins are currently the favorites, the reigning-champion St. Louis Blues are not far behind. The Blues have seen their odds shoot up in recent weeks, and are now +850 to repeat as champs and win their second Cup in franchise history.

The Blues, who will host the 2020 NHL All-Star Game, are 18-6-6 on the season, leading the Western Conference with 42 points. They are coming off a loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but had previously won four straight games. St. Louis is lead by goalie Jordan Binnington, who is tied for third in the NHL in wins with 13, and is ninth in save percentage at .925.

The Colorado Avalanche are tied for the third-best odds to win the Stanley Cup at +950. The Avalanche are also tied for third in the Western Conference with 38 points and are in the midst of a five-game winning streak. Center Nathan MacKinnon leads the team with 18 goals and 26 assists.

The Washington Capitals might be the hottest team in the NHL, riding a league-best six-game winning streak. The Capitals are also +950 to win their second Cup in two seasons, and have been getting great production from defenseman John Carlson, who is third in the NHL with 32 assists.
