Bruins Odds to Win the Stanley Cup
What better place to begin than by looking at the Bruins’ odds to win the Stanley Cup! The Bruins are regularly a strong Stanley Cup competitor; historically, they’ve built their team around talented goaltending, strong defensive play, and physical forwards who impose their will on opponents. Their style of play is well-suited for deep playoff runs.

|Toronto Maple Leafs||+900|
|New York Rangers||+1400|
|Vegas Golden Knights||+2000|
Bruins Betting Odds
The Bruins compete in the NHL’s Atlantic Division, along with the Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Toronto Maple Leafs. Since the 2007-08 season, the Bruins have missed the playoffs just twice, so they are consistently a safe bet to make the playoffs. Keep an eye on their playoff odds on the table below.
How to Read Bruins Betting Lines
Whether you’re looking for the Bruins’ odds to win a single game, a player prop bet, or a Stanley Cup futures bet, never fear – we’ve got you covered! There are more ways to bet on the Bruins than you can shake a stick at. While NHL betting may seem intimidating at first, reading Bruins betting lines will become natural in no time.
We’ll start with the bet that takes place over the longest time period, the Stanley Cup futures bet. When looking at the Bruins’ Stanley Cup odds, you may see a number next to the line that reads, for example, “+ 400.” In that example, a $100 bet on the Bruins would win $400 if Boston won the Stanley Cup, resulting in a $500 total payout. The higher the number after the “+” sign is, the less likely it is that Boston will win the Cup.
You don’t have to bet exactly $100, but the payout on a winning bet will be scaled proportionally to the $100 bet. In the previous example, betting $50 would result in a $200 win and a $250 payout.
If the Bruins are particularly good and the Bruins become the favorite to win the Stanley Cup, the symbol next to the betting number may switch from “+” to “-.” For example, the future betting odds may read “Boston Bruins -175.” In that case, a bettor would need to wager at least $175 to win $100 on their payout.
The higher the number is, the more money is involved. You’ll just need to remember to watch the signs. A “+” sign means potential for a bigger win, and the “-” sign means you’ll need to invest more money upfront if you want to score a nice payday.
Types of odds
Odds lines are similar for player prop bets. Boston Bruins Prop bets involve betting things like if a Bruins player will score a goal, which team or player will score first if a goaltender will record a shutout, and much more. Those odds are listed the same way.
Which recent Bruins players have a shot to make the Hockey Hall of Fame?
Defenseman Zdeno Chara has a very good chance to make the Hall of Fame. A seven-time All-Star, Mark Messier Leadership Award Winner, Norris Trophy Winner, Stanley Cup champion, and international hockey icon, Chara ranks 30th on the all-time defenseman scoring list and should be a lock to make the Hall. Although he is no longer with the Bruins, he will forever be part of the family.
Center Patrice Bergeron is another strong candidate for the Hall of Fame. He’s been one of the league’s best two-way centers throughout his career and is a four-time winner of the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward (tied for the most wins all-time). Bergeron is also a member of the Triple Gold club, having won an Olympic Gold Medal, a World Championship gold medal, and the Stanley Cup. Only 29 players ever have earned that accomplishment.
Goaltender Tuukka Rask has a solid case as well with both strong NHL and international play. Rask is a Vezina Trophy and Jennings Trophy winner, a two-time All-Star, and the NHL’s all-time leader in save percentage. By the time he retires, he will likely be the winningest Finnish goaltender of all time as well. He has recently left the Bruins, but is still on his way to the Hall of Fame!
