2012 Stanley Cup Finals Odds: Kings-Devils

The Stanley Cup Finals begin Wednesday night in New Jersey with two surprising squads battling it out for hockey’s greatest prize. The Los Angeles Kings, who began the playoffs as the West’s eighth seed with 20/1 odds to win the Cup, are now the favorites at -170. All that stands in their way is the New Jersey Devils, who started the postseason as the East’s sixth seed and at 25/1 to win the Cup.

The Devils do have home-ice advantage, with the first two games in Jersey, but the Kings are still slight favorites to win Wednesday’s Game One (Kings -120, Devils -110).

Vegas oddsmakers see the most likely result of the Finals as the Kings winning in six games, with the least likely scenario a Devils sweep.  Here are the odds for all the possible outcomes:

  • Kings in Six +300
  • Kings in Five +450
  • Kings in Seven +500
  • Devils in Seven +500
  • Kings Sweep +700
  • Devils in Five +700
  • Devils in Six +700
  • Devils Sweep +1400

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has the best odds to win the Conn Smythe Trophy for postseason MVP at +110, while his Devils counterpart Martin Brodeur has the best odds of any New Jersey player at +400.

Here are your 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy odds:

  • G Jonathan Quick (LA) +110
  • RW Dustin Brown (LA) +400
  • G Martin Brodeur (NJ) +400
  • RW Ilya Kovalchuk (NJ) +550
  • C Anze Kopitar (LA) +1000
  • D Drew Doughty (LA) +1200
  • LW Zach Parise (NJ) +1200
  • C Mike Richards (LA) +2500
