panthers vs. Oilers bets: SGP Profit boost

Bettors will typically find daily odds boosts at the best sports betting sites. Monday’s Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final is no exception.

The maximum wager for this Profit Boost is $10, and additional winnings can’t exceed $500. The bet’s odds must be +400 or larger before applying the boost.

Let’s say you’re constructing an SGP with Edmonton to win (in regulation or overtime), under 5.5 total goals, and Oilers superstar Connor McDavid to find the back of the net. These SGP odds originally churn out to +650 (bet $10, win $65). With the 50% Profit Boost, you would win $92.50 from a $10 wager at Caesars.

Edmonton is the first team to force a Game 7 after trailing 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final since 1945. That year, the Red Wings failed to finish their valiant comeback attempt against the Maple Leafs. Ironically, Toronto is the only team in Stanley Cup Final history to accomplish this tall order, upending Detroit three years prior. Edmonton’s best odds to manufacture the same result are .

For reference, the Oilers would have the second-lowest odds of any NHL team to pull off the 3-0 comeback in postseason history. Only the 1975 New York Islanders had a lower implied probability (2.8%) against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sergei Bobrovsky Update

Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was given a day off from practice on Sunday. Over the course of this series, Bobrovsky has gone from the Conn Smythe favorite (-550 ahead of Game 4) to a pedestrian netminder, surrendering a 5.06 goals-against average and a .793 save percentage in the last three games.

A list of props involving Bobrovsky is below.

Will Connor McDavid Make History?

Before Game 4, McDavid was +1600 to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the most valuable player during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Nevertheless, McDavid’s current price tag makes him the odds-on favorite, equivalent to a 96% implied probability as of this publishing.

The Conn Smythe has been given to a player on the losing team five times, including one occasion in the last 33 years. Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere did so against his counterpart Martin Brodeur and the Devils in 2003.

Like bettors, voters are prone to recency bias. To accomplish this historic feat, a player from the runner-up side of the script must exhibit a mind-blowing performance. McDavid has delivered just that in countless playoff games, tallying consecutive four-point outings for the first time in Stanley Cup Final history in Games 4 and 5.

Thus, McDavid will likely hoist the Conn Smythe Trophy even if the Panthers celebrate with the Stanley Cup.
