After six hard-fought contests between the St. Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins, everything comes down to tonight – Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.
The Bruins are favored to win it all tonight, with -170 odds, while the Blues are listed at +145 to win Game 7, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Even though the series is tied at three games apiece, Boston holds some significant statistical advantages that could point to the Bruins closing out the series at home. For one, Boston ranks No. 2 in the NHL this postseason in goals scored, averaging 3.39 per game. The Bruins also lead the NHL defensively, surrendering an average of just 2.04 goals per game in the 2019 postseason.
The Bruins being favored is also reflected in the odds to win the 2019 Conn Smythe Trophy, as Boston's goalie Tuukka Rask is the heavy favorite (-210).

Still, it's tough to rule out a team as talented as St. Louis. The Blues have held their own in Boston, winning two of the three games played at TD Garden so far this series.
Even though the Bruins are favored to win Game 7, the Blues are more than capable of giving Boston a run for its money. Good thing we only have to wait a few short hours to see who will finally hoist the Stanley Cup.
