Vegas has no faith in the Wild winning the Stanley Cup

Sort of a slap in the face considering the Wild's season.
Publish date:

The odds to win the Stanley Cup have been released and the smart people in Las Vegas aren't betting on the Minnesota Wild. 

According to Bovada, the Wild have the third-worst odds of the 16 teams competing for Lord Stanley's trophy. 

  1. Nashville Predators 15/4
  2. Boston Bruins 11/2
  3. Tampa Bay Lightning 6/1
  4. Vegas Golden Knights 15/2
  5. Winnipeg Jets 8/1
  6. Pittsburgh Penguins 10/1
  7. Toronto Maple Leafs 11/1
  8. Washington Capitals 11/1
  9. Anaheim Ducks 20/1
  10. Los Angeles Kings 22/1
  11. San Jose Sharks 25/1
  12. Columbus Blue Jackets 28/1
  13. Philadelphia Flyers 25/1
  14. Minnesota Wild 30/1
  15. Colorado Avalanche 33/1
  16. New Jersey Devils 33/1

Maybe the odds are a reflection of the Wild's chances now that star defenseman Ryan Suter is out of the season with a broken ankle, but it's still a slap in the face considering Minnesota has worse odds than six of the seven other Western Conference teams.
