Now is the best time to get the best prices on the outright Conference Champions and the Stanley Cup winner. Don’t forget, these numbers will change once the regular season opens with Toronto hosting Montreal at 7:00 PM ET on October 8, 2014, so get in now.
Chicago: Western Conference & Stanley Cup Chalk
Far and away the top favorites to win the Stanley Cup this season, Chicago is also the top chalk to win what will be an ultra competitive NHL Western Conference. Seven of the top eleven contenders in the chase for Stanley, including four of the top six, hail from the West. We are surprised by the drop off from first to second as the defending Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and 2014 West point leading Anaheim Ducks are a full +360 behind the Blackhawks. Don’t ignore the Ducks in the West as they are loaded with talent.
Perennial contenders make up the top Eastern Conference favorites
As it’s been for years now, Boston and Pittsburgh are the top two Cup contenders in the East as the Bruins have a slight edge over the Penguins. Those two squads are also posted first and second to claim the Eastern Conference title while the Tampa Bay Lightning round out the top three favorites. If you are looking for a couple of Stanley Cup or Conference Champion underdogs with a chance, we suggest that the young and exciting Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues deserve some consideration. Enjoy the puck action!

I really feel like this is going to get worse before it gets better. The Montréal Canadiens now sit in the basement in the NHL's Atlantic Division, after dropping their fifth game in a row. It was another disappointing offensive effort and a real defensive letdown, as they lost 5 to 2 to the not so great San Jose Sharks. How much worse can it get? Well, they are on the road for two more games in California. How will they fare tonight against the LA Kings?
Well, this is not good at all. If you're a Montréal Canadiens fan, that is. We had a real beast of the schedule to start the season, and we have not been able to find our footing. At all. The Habs have lost their last 4 games, and haven't won since opening night. They also have scored an embarrassingly low amount of goals. Today, they hit the road and face the arguably-just-as-disappointing San Jose Sharks team.
There is only one undefeated team left in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs have really exceeded my expectations to start the season, with a 5-0 record. That 5-0 does contain three road games, by the way. This weekend, they're at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. How will they fair? Will the Steelers halt the NFL's longest winning streak, or will the Chiefs extend to 6-0? Keep reading to find out.
CBC is the place to be tonight. Lord, I can't believe I just said that. But, it's oddly appropriate for once. They have two absolutely fantastic games in a Hockey Night in Canada. First, the Toronto Maple Leafs throwdown against the Montréal Canadiens. And in the nightcap, the Ottawa Senators go up against the Edmonton Oilers. But right now, we’re only concerned with the Habs.
