Like many pundits (and certain bloggers), the oddsmakers apparently believe that the Los Angeles Kings missing the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs won't hamper their chances of a rebound.

In addition to those five, seven other teams are going off at odds of 20/1 or better according to Bovada. Here's the list of your "top" teams:
