NHL betting: Canadiens were 30-to-1 to make Stanley Cup Final, and bettor put $5k on them

On May 29, the Montreal Canadiens won an overtime game to force Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

On May 30, one bettor might have made an incredible bet on the Canadiens.

The bettor took the Canadiens at 30-to-1 to reach the Stanley Cup Final at BetMGM. Considering the Maple Leafs were big favorites in Game 7, and Montreal had two series to go even if they beat Toronto, it was a heck of a bet.

Now that bettor is four wins away from making a small fortune.

Canadiens have made a fun run

On May 30, the bettor at BetMGM put $5,000 to win $150,000 on the Canadiens to win a series in the Stanley Cup semifinals and advance to the final round.
