The Vegas Golden Knights are now the favorites with bet365 to win the Stanley Cup this season after becoming the first team to reach the championship series. 

The Nevada side disposed of the Winnipeg Jets in five games in the Western Conference finals to become the first expansion club to reach the finals in its maiden season since the St. Louis Blues in 1968. The Blues were swept by the Montreal Canadiens that year so the Golden Knights are determined to make history by becoming the first team to win the Stanley Cup in its inaugural season in the NHL. Such feat will cost bookmakers millions as the Golden Knight, who are made up of discards and free agents, were longshots to lift the Stanley Cup before the season started. Leading Vegas in its historic quest are Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith, William Karlsson and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

The Golden Knights will face either the Tampa Bay Lightning or the Washington Capitals in the finals. The two teams will face off in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday. The Lightning, featuring Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos are the second choice in the outright odds market to lift the Stanley Cup. They won their only crown in 2004 and last reached the championship series in 2015. 

The Capitals are currently the underdogs in the outright odds market. he Capitals have never won the Stanley Cup with their best finish coming in 1998 when they finished runner-up to the Detroit Red Wings. Washington boasts of three-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, John Carlson, Nicklas Backstrom and goaltender Braden Holtby.
