The Pittsburgh Penguins will be playing playoff hockey in 2020. Well, maybe. With the NHL and NHLPA agreeing to finish the NHL season in a unique tournament structure, the Penguins will take on the Montreal Canadiens in a five-game series to determine which team will reach the “first round” of the NHL Playoffs. While the date is not set, one thing is for certain. Pennsylvanians will be able to wager on playoff hockey, and can do so already for the futures market at DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s look at the Penguins’ odds to win the Stanley Cup, the Eastern Conference, and their five-game series against the rival Montreal Canadiens.

The Penguins are ninth on the board at DraftKings Sportsbook PA in terms of odds to win the Stanley Cup Finals, but one of the teams highest on the list that plays in the first series. Given that they are -195 to win their first series against the Canadiens, that is no surprise. Of course, the Penguins will be relying on a healthy Sidney Crosby to win the Finals again in 2020, but Evgeni Malkin has had a terrific year for the Pens, as he is one of the leaders in assists in the Eastern Conference. This is not the traditional Penguins team, and they will have to fight for a chance at the Cup.

 

Penguins Eastern Conference Champions Odds

Team Odds to Win Eastern Conference
TB Lightning +300
BOS Bruins +350
PHI Flyers +500
WSH Capitals +500
PIT Penguins +800
TOR Maple Leafs +1300
CAR Hurricanes +1600
NY Rangers +1700
NY Islanders +2000
FLA Panthers +2500
CBJ Blue Jackets +3000
MTL Canadiens +3500

 

The Penguins have the highest odds among all teams playing in the first series to win the Eastern Conference, as they come in at +800 at DraftKings Sportsbook. This clearly indicates they are favored to reach the “first round”, but it also shows that the Pens could make some serious noise should they advance past the first series. With a healthy Sidney Crosby, anything is possible.

 

Penguins vs Canadiens NHL Playoffs Series Odds

 

Team Odds to Win Series
Pittsburgh Penguins -195
Montreal Canadiens +155

 

While no dates are officially set, the opponents are. The Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens will meet in a best-of-five series, the first to win three games. Of all the series available to wager on at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Penguins are the heaviest favorites at -195. DraftKings Sportsbook isΒ heavily favoring the Penguins, which is likely due to the health of their superstars. Can the Canadiens pull off an upset? Not likely, per DraftKings’ odds. The Montreal Canadiens were just 31-31-9 before the NHL suspended the season due to coronavirus.
