MLive: Odds-makers say Wings’ chances of making playoff noise are slim

No surprise here. MLive’s Scott DeCamp got the latest Vegas odds of the Wings making noise in the playoffs from, and said odds are slim to none:

According to Bovada, the Red Wings’ already slim odds of accomplishing big things this season are slipping further away.

As of Jan. 2, the Red Wings’ chances of winning the Stanley Cup were at 150-to-1. As of Feb. 2, those odds were down to 200-to-1, per Bovada.

In that same, one-month time span, the Red Wings’ odds of winning the Eastern Conference have fallen from 66-to-1 to 75-to-1.

After their 3-2 home loss to the Boston Bruins Tuesday night, the Red Wings (21-23-8; 50 points) were sitting eight points behind Columbus and the New York Islanders and nine points behind Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference wild-card race. Detroit is tied with Montreal, and it’s chasing Florida, the New York Rangers and Carolina as well.

Well who knew that Friday’s game against the Islanders would be a “four-point affair?”

One thought on “MLive: Odds-makers say Wings’ chances of making playoff noise are slim”

  1. At first glance I read that as “200-1 odds that the Wings would make the playoffs”, and thought, no way I take that bet. 200-1 to win the Cup is extremely optomistic, really.
