If it comes to the Stanley Cup Final, there is no lack of gambling opportunities available. For the 2019 edition of this struggle for Lord Stanley's holy grail, the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues are set for what's shaping up to be another fascinating championship.
BetOnline has released a litany of all wagering opportunities for the Cup Final, with chances on proper score, total games played in the show and where the series will end, combined with 15 player prop specials.
Listed below are a Couple of of my favorite props:
OVER 5.5 Factors for Ryan O'Reilly (-115)
Despite sitting in team scoring behind Jaden Schwartz, Blues centre Ryan O'Reilly has been undervalued in this show in my view. O'Reilly, who has three goals and 11 assists from the 2019 playoffs, has been the steadiest offensive contributor for St. Louis all year .
Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has been excellent in the postseason but I believe O'Reilly can go OVER his 5.5-point projection. If you are interested, he is +4000 to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as NHL playoffs MVP.
Series to Move Six Games (+190)
Since 2010, six of those nine Stanley Cup Finals have gone into six matches. While I understand past stats and trends can be immaterial, both the Blues and Bruins are incredibly evenly matched and I will see this one going to six matches.
St. Louis has played plenty of games in the postseason, since the Blues-Winnipeg Jets first-round series moved to six games. The Blues went the distance in a Game 7 showdown with the Dallas Stars in the second round before dispatching the San Jose Sharks in six in the Western Conference final.
The Bruins are coming off a sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes, yet they moved the space from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the opening round and had six games to ship the Columbus Blue Jackets packing in the Eastern Conference semifinal.
I believe another long run is in store, so the +190 juice seems attractive at a champion being crowned in Game 6.
