What happened after the Maple Leafs made it out of the first round for the first time in 19 years? Why, they’re now the favorites to win the Stanley Cup.
Of course, Toronto’s new status was greatly aided by the Bruins and Avalanche getting knocked out ❌. Entering the playoffs, Boston was the +300 favorite, followed by Colorado at +650, Edmonton at +800 and Toronto at +900.
With the Maple Leafs (+350) and Oilers (+400) now leading the charge, Canada is in strong position for its first Stanley Cup since 1993. Toronto’s last championship was all the way back in 1967. But before the Leafs can start thinking about Lord Stanley, they are -200 to advance against the Panthers (+155).
