Dallas Stars Looking For An Upsetting Performance


Unless you are heading to Vegas before watching the games these numbers are just for fun, but the odds are out for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Stars are well nowhere near the top of the betting list going into the first round of this years playoffs.  The great news is that the Stars are on the list unlike the previous seasons.

The Stars are now looking to pull off the rare #8 seed over a #1 seed, but it has been done and done recently when the LA Kings won as a #8 seed and ended up winning the Stanley Cup in the end.  Grant it the Stars are playing the Anaheim Ducks instead of the Vancouver Canucks but the Ducks do have a history of bowing out of the playoffs early.

Here are the 2014 betting odds heading into the first round of the playoffs!

Boston Bruins 7/2
St. Louis Blues 6/1
Pittsburgh Penguins 7/1
Chicago Blackhawks 8/1
Anaheim Ducks 9/1
San Jose Sharks 9/1
Los Angeles Kings 10/1
Colorado Avalanche 14/1
Detroit Red Wings 20/1
Montreal Canadiens 20/1
New York Rangers 20/1
Philadelphia Flyers 20/1
Tampa Bay Lightning 25/1
Minnesota Wild 40/1
Columbus Blue Jackets 50/1
Dallas Stars 50/1

The Stars as you can see are on the bottom of the list, but what do bettors now? This is a Stars team that can shock the NHL!!
