Bodog tabs the Vancouver Canucks as the favorites to win the 2012 Stanley Cup

Boston Bruins v Vancouver Canucks - Game Seven

during Game Seven of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Final at Rogers Arena on June 15, 2011 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Bruce Bennett

Chin up, Vancouver Canucks fans.

Sure, your team came just one win short of their first-ever Stanley Cup victory. OK, your city is reeling from the ugly riots that broke out last night (although at least one couple had some shameless fun, I guess). And yes, you might be doubting your franchise goalie and those talented Sedin twins, who sported identically ugly -4 ratings in Game 7.

That being said, the odds are on your side, at least if you ask the people at Bodog. They gave the Canucks the highest odds of winning the Stanley Cup in 2012 (5/1) and placed the defending champion Boston Bruins in second place (8/1 - feel free to share your agreement or disagreement with that prediction in this poll). The Washington Capitals (17/2), Philadelphia Flyers (9/1) and Pittsburgh Penguins (9/1) rounded out the top five.

Here’s the full list, if you’re the curious and/or betting type. (Sorry Panthers fans.)
