But that doesn't automatically give them a leg up on the competition, at least in Bovada's eyes.

The Bruins were 10/1, while the Blues (12/1) and Kings (14/1) rounded out the Top 5.

The Penguins may have arguably the best player in the league in Sidney Crosby, but they were swept out of the playoffs by the Bruins, totaling just two goals in four games.
