The Presidents’ Trophy-winning Boston Bruins are also the favorites to win the Stanley Cup, according to online bookmaker Bovada.

Following is the full list of Cup odds:

Boston Bruins 7/2
St. Louis Blues 6/1
Pittsburgh Penguins 7/1
Chicago Blackhawks 8/1
Anaheim Ducks 9/1
San Jose Sharks 9/1
Los Angeles Kings 10/1
Colorado Avalanche 14/1
Detroit Red Wings 20/1
Montreal Canadiens 20/1
New York Rangers 20/1
Philadelphia Flyers 20/1
Tampa Bay Lightning 25/1
Minnesota Wild 40/1
Columbus Blue Jackets 50/1
Dallas Stars 50/1

Back in the beginning of February, the Bruins’ odds were considerably higher, at 9/1.  A 17-3-5 record since the Olympic break helped push the line to 7/2.

Boston opens the playoffs against Detroit. Beat the Red Wings and the Bruins would meet the winner of the Montreal-Tampa Bay series for a spot in the Eastern Conference Final.
