Oddsmakers Can't Choose Between Blues And Blackhawks

This series is going to be close, both in reality and in the odds.

No one can deny that the Blues and Blackhawks are going to play one hell of a Stanely Cup series starting tomorrow night. I've seen websites choose the Blues to win; I've seen them pick the Blackhawks to win. The oddsmakers, on the other hand? No clue. From Bovada.lv, here are the odds for all of the round one matchups (Blues/Hawks in bold):

  • Detroit Red Wings (Series Prices)                      13/10    (+130)
  • Tampa Bay Lightning (Series Prices)                  2/3        (-150)
  • New York Rangers (Series Prices)                      13/10    (+130)
  • Pittsburgh Penguins (Series Prices)                    2/3        (-150)
  • Chicago Blackhawks (Series Price)                         10/11    (-110)
  • St. Louis Blues (Series Price)                         10/11    (-110)

And here's the breakdown for the series itself:

Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

  • Chicago Blackhawks (Series Price)                     10/11    (-110)
  • St. Louis Blues (Series Price) 10/11    (-110)

Exact Result

  • Chicago Blackhawks win 4-0                  11/1
  • Chicago Blackhawks win 4-1                  13/2
  • Chicago Blackhawks win 4-2                  9/2
  • Chicago Blackhawks win 4-3                  9/2
  • St. Louis Blues win 4-0                          10/1
  • St. Louis Blues win 4-1                          5/1
  • St. Louis Blues win 4-2                          9/2
  • St. Louis Blues win 4-3                          9/2

Number of Games

  • 4                      11/2
  • 5                      13/5
  • 6                      2/1
  • 7                      2/1

Basically, the only thing that they can figure out is that it won't be a sweep either way.
