Blues Rise In Updated Bovada Stanley Cup Odds

Place your bets?

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The latest Bovada odds have been published, and the Blues have gone from 14/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup to 9/1 odds. Based on their recent string of excellent play (8-2 in their last 10), outstanding goaltending, and overall optimism around the team right now, this is probably a move in the right direction for oddsmakers.

On the flip side, they still have the Washington Capitals as the odds on Cup favorites, and the Hawks' odds have taken a tumble. This makes me wonder if they take recent history/franchise futility into consideration (spoiler: they don't). Here are the odds for the current playoff and bubble teams:
