2023/24 NHL Stanley Cup Odds: Florida Panthers still favoured despite two straight losses

The Stanley Cup Final is set.

The Florida Panthers won the Eastern Conference, and they're facing the Western Conference Champion Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Oilers are going for the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1990 and the first won by a Canadian team since 1993. Florida is hunting for its first-ever Stanley Cup after falling short in last year's Final.

Let's get into the latest outright odds for the Stanley Cup Final.

2024 NHL Stanley Cup odds

FLA Panthers

-350

EDM Oilers

+275

Suddenly, we have a series.

The Edmonton Oilers have won two consecutive games to make the 2024 NHL Stanley Cup Final series 3-2 in favour of the Florida Panthers, who got out to a 3-0 lead to begin the series.

Thanks to those two straight wins, the Oilers are now +275 to win the series while the Panthers are still the favourites at -350

Florida entered the series as -130 favourites, while the Oilers were slight underdogs at +110.

Through Game 5, Edmonton has outshot Florida 145-135 for the series.

Florida scored once in each period of Game 1, with Carter Verhaeghe, Evan Rodrigues and Eetu Luostarinen finding the net in their 3-0 win. Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky saved all 32 shots he faced, including saving all six shots from the Oilers' lethal power play.

In Game 2, the Oilers scored first before four unanswered goals from Florida - three in the third period - decided the game. The Panthers scored once on the power play and their final goal was against an empty net to seal the 4-1 win.

Florida scored first in Game 3, Edmonton tied it up less than two minutes into the second frame, and then three Panthers goals put the game out of reach despite the Oilers' third-period comeback attempt that eventually fell short. The game ended 4-3 for the Panthers.

Edmonton raced to a 3-1 lead after the first period of Game 4 and never looked back, with the game eventually ending 8-1. Connor McDavid got his first career Stanley Cup Final goal, and the Oilers saw seven players score their eight goals in the contest.

Game 5 was similar, but slightly closer. Edmonton scored first in the first period, then added two more within the first five minutes of the second period. Florida pulled one back, the Oilers scored on the power play, then a Panthers goal early in the third made it 4-3 Edmonton before McDavid gave his team an insurance goal on an empty net.
