Not sure what to back in this year’s Stanley Cup Finals? We have you covered

It’s Stanley Cup Finals time, with two teams battling it out for seasonal glory in the NHL.

While many expected the Vegas Golden Knights to make the Stanley Cup Finals, very few would have seen the Florida Panthers making the cut after coming into the Eastern Conference bracket as the second wild-card.

With plenty of lines available, we have picked out a handful of series bets that could be worth backing ahead of the Finals.

Here are the top tips for this year’s Stanley Cup Finals between the Golden Knights and the Panthers.

PANTHERS ARE NO PUSHOVERS

Florida have consistently defied the odds in the playoffs, while plenty of pundits have written them off. That ends now.

We simply cannot go against them after sweeping Carolina 4-0 in the Eastern Finals, and they look good value to get the job done.

While the Golden Knights will be difficult to beat, they are carrying a few goaltending injuries and that could well affect them here.

The Panthers’ Cinderella Story could have its fairytale ending, and we’re happy to take them winning the Stanley Cup in six games here.

TIP: Panthers to win the Stanley Cup Finals 4-2 (+450, Caesers)

MATTHEW’S MIGHT

One of the stars for Florida as of late, summer trade acquisition Matthew Tkachuk has been lethal in front of goal for the Eastern Conference franchise. 

The former Calgary recruit surpassed his personal record of points scored in a single season in his first season in Florida, and he was named a finalist in the Hart Memorial Trophy.

The Panthers winger has been on fire in the playoffs, scoring nine goals in 16 games throughout the postseason and scoring four goals in four games in the Eastern Conference Finals.

With Vegas’ goaltending problem coming to light, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Tkachuk lead the scoring in the series, with his odds of +400 holding some appeal here.

TIP: Matthew Tkachuk Series Top Goalscorer (+400, Caesars)
