Outright Series Winner Odds
|Tampa Bay Lightning||Toronto Maple Leafs|
Even though they haven’t managed to escape the first round of the NHL Playoffs in nearly two decades, oddsmakers are favouring the Maple Leafs to defeat the reigning Eastern Conference juggernauts in the first round of the postseason.
While it’s hard not to be superstitious of the Maple Leafs in the playoffs, this year’s squad could be poised to get the monkey off their back, snapping their lengthy postseason woes, and moving on to the second round. With their top performers firing on all cylinders, the Leafs could take advantage of a Lightning team that is bound to be experiencing the wear and tear of multiple deep playoff runs.
The Leafs may be favoured to win this series but don’t look past the Lightning as underdogs. Proving to be one of the best teams the NHL has seen in years, the two-time Stanley Cup winning team has maintained their key players and continued to roll out competitive squads.
After coming up short in last year’s postseason, the Avalanche may be equally as hungry to break out of the first round, earning the chance to make it four-straight Stanley Cup Final births.
