The Westgate sportsbook posted NHL point totals and playoff and division odds Sunday and Vegas is second in points (103½) and the even-money favorite to win its division.
The Blues had the NHL’s worst record when St. Louis native Scott Berry placed a $400 bet to win $100,000 and friend Brandon Chapel made a $200 wager to win $50,000.
The Golden Knights, along with the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs, are listed at 7-1 to win next season’s NHL championship.
William Hill, South Point, MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment each face mid-six figure liabilities on St. Louis, which was a 300-1 long shot in January to win the Cup.
“The Knights are going to be better next year,” Westgate sportsbook manager Ed Salmons said. “The Knights are going to be loaded for the next five to 10 years.”
PointsBet sportsbook in New Jersey inadvertently twisted the knife in the hearts and bankrolls of bettors in Las Vegas when it announced Wednesday that it would refund all Golden Knights bets.
Wiseguys bet on San Jose at minus 110 at MGM Resorts to push the line to minus 120 on Tuesday, but the MGM lowered the line back to minus 110 after taking more money on the Knights.
A Westgate sportsbook bettor wagered $100,000 to win $500 on the Milwaukee Bucks to win their NBA playoff series over the Detroit Pistons.
Most of the action is sharp and for $1,000 limit bets.
Entering Vegas’ 2018-19 season finale, a $100 bettor would’ve lost $969 wagering on the Knights in every game this season.
