Wager on Boston Bruins Individual Props

Because the Boston Bruins are favored in the Stanley Cup Final, NHL fans looking to back the Bruins could find better odds in prop wagers.

The Bruins offer +375 odds to beat St. Louis 4 games to 3. If you feel Boston will win the series in 5 games, the odds are +450. If Boston backers feel the Bruins will sweep the St. Louis Blues 4 games to 0, they can back the Bruins at +1100.

Wagering on the favorite’s individual props can score much more profit than just backing Boston to win the series or on the moneyline in individual games.

Wager on the Bruins to Win the Series

Backing Boston to win the Stanley Cup Final is not a bad wager. The Bruins offer -150 odds. That’s worse than even money, but the odds aren’t bad because Boston is one of only two teams that can win the Stanley Cup. Not only that, but the Bruins are on a seven-game winning streak.

If you truly believe Boston will beat St. Louis and win Lord Stanley’s trophy, -150 odds might be a gift.

Wager on Boston to Win Individual Games

Another way to play the favorite in the Stanley Cup is to bet the Boston Bruins on the moneyline. Boston is a -155 home favorite to win Game 1. We can expect Boston to be around a -155 favorite for every game at TD Garden.

A good way to bump up those odds is to put Boston into a moneyline/total parlay. How many goals do you believe will be scored in Game 1? If you think it goes over 5, parlay over 5 at -140 with the Boston moneyline. If you believe the total goals scored will be under 5, parlay under 5 at +120 with Boston’s moneyline.

Back the Boston Bruins on the Puck Line in Individual Games

The final way to play the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final is to back them on the puck line. Boston will offer 1.5 pucks in any game at TD Garden during the series. By giving up 1.5 pucks to the St. Louis Blues, Boston backers can make much more money than what they would on the Bruins moneyline.

While Boston’s moneyline odds in Game 1 are -155, their puck line odds are -1.5 at +165. If you like the Bruins and believe they will beat St. Louis by at least two goals in Game 1, there is value backing Boston on the puck line.
