The odds to win the 2007/2008 season Stanley Cup have been published, the Detroit Redwings and Ottawa Senators favorite.

Odds to win the 2007/2008 Stanley Cup: Redwings and Senators atop Months away from the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, but the odds makers have already made up their mind and posted odds on the teams most likely to win the title in 2008. The most likely Stanley Cup game by odds appears to be a matchup between the Western Detroit Redwings and the Eastern Ottawa Senators. At the online bookmaker Bodog Sports, the odds on the Detroit Redwings to win the 2007/2008 Stanley Cup are now sitting at 7/2, the same betting odds held by the Ottawa Senators, as well. If those odds prove true reflection of the playoffs, this would be the first Stanley Cup appearance for the Detroit Redwings since their victory against the Carolina Hurricanes in 2002, as well as second consecutive appearance for the Ottawa Senators.

 The Redwings are the undisputed favorite to win the Western Conference with odds 6/5, completely blowing away the current Stanley Cup Champion, the Anaheim Ducks, who are listed with odds on winning the Conference of 5/1 and hold betting odds of 8/1 to win the Stanley Cup again in 2008. Also with odds 8/1 on winning the NHL title are the San Jose Sharks, who are 13/2 to win the Western Conference Championship this season and are the third team from the Western out of the top four favorites for the Stanley Cup this year. Following these four NHL teams come the Calgary Flames, the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers, all with odds of 12/1 to win the 2007/2008 Stanley Cup. With odds 14/1 come the Pittsburgh Penguins, followed by the Minnesota Wild and Vancouver Canucks with odds 15/1.

 The ultimate underdog for the Stanley Cup is the Los Angeles Kings posted with odds 200/1 to become the champion. Big underdogs with odds 100/1 are the Edmonton Oilers and the Phoenix Coyotes.
