This week the Rangers are ahead again of the Capitals, now up two matches to one on the NHL betting odds. Are they strong enough to continue reigning on the second-round series when the puck drops on a vital Game this coming Saturday?
With Eastern Conference-leading 7/2 odds of getting the Stanley Cup, the Rangers are not only the team to hammer in the series but the conference, second only to the Western Conference No. 2 seed St. Louis Blues during the entire league.
The Capitals, in opposition, in spite of a remarkable troubled victory over the Boston Bruins in Round 1, have just 12/1 odds of playing on and laying claim to the Stanley Cup – the lowest mark on the NHL future odds list.
Following splitting a pair of matches in Madison Square Garden, however, and then attainment three overtimes in the first match held at the Verizon Center on Wednesday, it’s secure to declare the two teams are pretty equally in line.
Are the Caps a more captivating choice with their higher payout?
