Book quick to adjust Pens' futures odds
The Pittsburgh Penguins opened the shortened NHL season with a bang and oddsmakers have taken notice.
The Penguins ripped off back-to-back wins on the road to open the campaign against a pair of tough divisional rivals. Pittsburgh lit the lamp nine times in convincing victories over Philadelphia and New York and that has oddsmakers scrambling to adjust their Stanley Cup futures odds.
The LVH SuperBook opened the Pens and Rangers as co-favorites at 8/1, but now has Pittsburgh listed as 6/1 faves after it chased Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist from the net Sunday night.
Here is the complete list of NHL futures odds courtesy of the LVH:
