The National Hockey League - 2018-19 Stanley Cup - Favourites to win - Who are they. It's now mid-February and nothing much has changed when it comes to the odds to win the 2018-19 Stanley Cup.

The story remains the same: it's the Tampa Bay Lightning and then everybody else.

This can't be a surprise, as the Lightning stand a full 15 points ahead of every other team in the league. Through 58 games, the Lightning have a record of 43-11-4 and are on track to post one of the best regular season records of the modern era.

The next closest teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks, all have a total of 75 points.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are an incredibly well-balance team, with a wealth of offensive talent (including Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos), a great defense and one of the best goaltenders in the league. The Lightning are deep and will be a handful for any team in a seven game series.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets all have strong teams this season, though all three have to be considered in the second tier behind the Lightning.
