The Vegas Golden Knights, in their inaugural season, are four wins away from a Stanley Cup championship. 

And as if that's not batshit crazy enough, get this – they're favored to beat the Washington Capitals, who advanced to their first Cup Final in the Alex Ovechkin Era by shutting out the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 on Wednesday night. 

No, you don't need your vision checked. It's real. Bovada's odds favor the Golden Knights to take down the Capitals. And why not, really? The Golden Knights are getting an incredible amount of action in the gambling world, and it seems as though many have shifted to pulling for the NHL's newest member to go all the way.

The Golden Knights have blown every narrative out of the water so far, knocking off Los Angeles, San Jose, and then Winnipeg in the Western Conference Final. There's no reason they can't get this done, and the betting odds seem to feel the same way.
