Nashville Predators v St. Louis Blues
Neither the Nashville Predators nor the St. Louis Blues had a particularly tough time in the first round of the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. The Blues advanced in five games over the Minnesota Wild and the Predators advanced in a sweep. The latter was particularly impressive, because Nashville ousted the conference favorites in the Chicago Blackhawks. Furthermore, the 'hawks entered the post-season as a hot team, unlike the Wild who were on the cold side for weeks as they lost the momentum they had at earlier points in the season.
The shocking sweep of the 'hawks turned the seeding of the Western Conference upside-down. While Nashville remain a road team in the second round, their confidence will be higher than St. Louis' because of the Chicago sweep. The Preds are a good team to get behind on series-winning odds, with Sportsbet offering odds of $1.94 for them to win the best-of-seven series.
Ottawa Senators v New York Rangers
The New York Rangers are in the right part of the draw in the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. While Pittsburgh, Washington, and Columbus have to deal with one another, New York got a forward-less Montreal team in the first round and the Ottawa Senators in the second. That gives New York a great chance to make the conference finals.
That the Rangers will face Ottawa without home-ice advantage for their second-round series isn't a great counterpoint to those that don't want to back New York. The Rangers were awesome on the road in the regular season. Furthermore, New York dispatched of Montreal thanks to some road prowess. The Rangers are favoured to beat the Senators, but the odds aren't so short that they are prohibitive. There is $1.63 available with Sportsbet in the series market while a -1.5 game handicap is coming in at $2.05 for those that want something longer. It's hard to picture the Sens lasting seven games in this one, making the latter odds look flirty.
