NHL Stanley Cup Betting

The 2019 Stanley Cup Final has the St. Louis Blues taking on the Boston Bruins in a best-of-seven series, with the Bruins having the home-ice advantage. The Bruins are the marquee team that has won Stanley Cup titles in the past, while the Blues have never won the title. Boston finished with the third-best record in the NHL and rolled over the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals to reach the Stanley Cup Final, while the Blues defeated the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals.

This will be a battle between two of the best lines in the league and two of the best goaltenders. The Bruins feature goaltender Tuukka Rask, while the Blues have goaltender Jordan Binnington. Boston features the top line in the NHL with Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron. That line has scored 38.6% of Boston’s goals in the playoffs. On the other side, the Blues have Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Tarasenko and Tyler Bozak. Schwartz has more goals in the playoffs (12) than he did during the entire regular season.

The Blues and Bruins split their regular-season series, with each team winning at home. The Bruins won 5-2 in Boston in mid-January, while the Blues won 2-1 in St. Louis in late February.

The Stanley Cup was originally a challenge cup, rather than a cup awarded at the end of a particular season or series. The first winners were the Montreal Hockey Club in 1893, and they "defended" their Cup in 1894 against Ottawa HC. From there, the Cup changed hands periodically, including multiple times in several years. It wasn't until 1915 that the Stanley Cup became an official "League vs. League" championship series, the first of which was won by the PCHA's Vancouver Millionaires. The Montreal Canadiens won their first Stanley Cup in 1916, becoming the first NHA team to win it in this format.

In 1927, the NHL became the sole holder of the Stanley Cup, and the idea of different leagues "challenging" the NHL went out the window once and for all.

The format of the Stanley Cup Finals hasn't always been the best-of-seven series we're used to today. In the 1920s, this was a "first to two wins" format, though it switched to best-of-five in the 1930s. In 1939, the Boston Bruins won the first ever best-of-seven Stanley Cup Finals by beating the Maple Leafs, and that format has remained the same ever since.

NHL franchises have had some odd histories for sure, and that makes this chart a little skewed if you're a hockey history buff. The Ottawa Senators, for example, have won the Stanley Cup in the past. But the team that won the Cup in the 1920s folded before the advent of the new Ottawa Senators, who have only been to the Stanley Cup Finals once and have never won it.

Not surprisingly, there's a massive monopoly on the Stanley Cup, as Montreal, Toronto and Detroit have won 48 Cups between them, while no one else in the NHL has hoisted Lord Stanley's trophy more than six times. Is the field catching up? Sure.

Chicago, for example, has won three Cups since 2010 and looks poised for more in the near future, while Pittsburgh has won it four times since 2008, including becoming the first team to win back-to-back Stanley Cups since the 1997 and 1998 Detroit Red Wings in 2016 and 2017. With the parity in hockey though, it's becoming tougher and tougher to go on a huge run like we saw out of the Canadiens in the 1960s and 1970 or the Maple Leafs in the 1930s and 1940s.
