Washington Capitals Odds to Win the Stanley Cup Championship
Click here for the current Washington Capitals Schedule
Which Washington Capitals team will show up this year? The one from the first half of last season that was an embarrassment to themselves and their sport? The one in the second half that was arguably the best in hockey — and produced an MVP? Or the one in the playoffs that just didn’t seem hungry enough to win a series and lost to a Rangers team they had no business losing to? This team has rarely been easy to handicap, and this year is certainly no exception. The oddsmakers at Bovada are not optimistic — the team is 25/1 to win the Stanley Cup as of August 15, which puts them in the middle of the pack. Alexander Ovechkin is an extremely public player, though, so check below for the latest odds because that could fall. After being active at the trade deadline, the team was almost dormant in the offseason. The only move of note was losing Mike Ribeiro to Phoenix. His presence will be missed, but not at the price he commanded. With largely the same team, what will determine the success of this team is how well Adam Oates can get his team to buy in from the start, and consistently — to his bold systems.
