The Tampa Bay Lightning continue to cruise, and their odds to win the Stanley Cup continue to improve.

The Lightning were available at +700 odds to win it all a little more than week ago on FanDuel Sportsbook, and now they've improved to +600.

Second in the NHL with 81 points, the Lightning have a league-best 38 wins, and that number continues to trend in the right direction. Tampa has won 10 straight, and the Lightning haven't lost in regulation in a month, last falling to the Minnesota Wild on January 16.

Bruins Stanley Cup Odds 2020

The Boston Bruins are the only team with more points (82) than the Lightning, and they are not far behind with +750 odds to win the Stanley Cup. The Atlantic Division leaders have won eight of their last 10 games as well.

Blues Stanley Cup Odds 2020

Behind Tampa and Boston is a three-way tie between the Colorado Avalanche (72 points), St. Louis Blues (74 points) and Washington Capitals (79 points), all at +1000 odds.

The championship race is still very much up in the air, as these odds indicate no team has even a 15 percent implied probability of winning the Stanley Cup yet, so the rest of the season should continue to bring plenty of changes in these odds.
