Moments after the Washington Capitals raised Lord Stanley's cup, Oddsshark released odds for all 31 clubs to hoist the Cup in 2019. The Bruins are tied with mulitiple clubs, including the newly crowned champions, with 12/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup in 2019. At +1200, the Bruins hold the third-best odds in the league. The Tampa Bay Lightning own the best odds at 10/1.

The Bruins opened the 2017-18 with 33-1 odds to take home the cup, a year after the black and gold were 25-1 to win.

The Bruins finished the season with 112 points, one behind the Lightning for first place in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins bowed out to the Lightning in the conference semifinals, losing the series 4-1.

With most of the core returning in 2018-19, the Bruins have the chance to build off of a special season and make a run for the Cup. The Bruins have skill across the board, with a mix of veteran leadership and young talent.

A strong offseason could propel the B's to the pinnacle of the league.
