Pens and Canucks favored by the bookmakers to meet in the Stanley Cup Finals

It is always interesting to take a look at what the bookies who never lose have to say about who they feel will be the winners and losers in the upcoming NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Bear in mind, that the goal of the bookmakers is to set a number where there should be a near equal amount of betters on each side of the action so it's not so much an exact science as it is a projection of how to split the money of the masses on each side of the wager.

We went to Bodava.lv to see what the current odds were and found few surprises. The Pens and Canucks are favored to face off in the finals, with Pittsburgh having a slight edge.

Some of the individual first round series have some fairly large numbers with the Rangers and Bruins  being the most heavily favored.
