Bovada Odds Pick Blues As The Stanley Cup Favorite

Uhoh. Now even the betting businesses are putting the smart money on the Blues. Anyone else getting nervous?

Call me a pessimist, call me a nervous nelly, call me whatever you want to, but the rash of news outlets and video games and everywhere else picking the Blues to win the Stanley Cup makes me paranoid.

For some reason, this makes me more so, especially this late in the season. is picking the Blues to win the whole damn thing, with 5/1 odds in their favor. If you're a non-paranoid Blues fan, place your bets. If you're like the rest of the fanbase, well, place your bets but don't get worked up.
