Sidney Crosby the favorite to win the Hart, Art Ross Trophies

Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin get some odds love, too!

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Pittsburgh Penguins at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Sidney Crosby did a lot of winning this past season. The Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe - it doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

Except, well, it can. Individual awards are still merits of success, and the Pittsburgh Penguins have some contenders for those this season, according to sports betting agency Bovada.

Crosby is the favorite to win not just the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP with 7/2 odds, but he’s also the favorite to win the Art Ross as the league’s leading scorer with 2/1 odds.

He’s even got 14/1 odds to win the Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer, though he’s a bit further down that list, tied with John Tavares for eighth.

Not to be left out, Evgeni Malkin has his own odds, as well, although he’s a bit further down: he has 18/1 odds to win the Hart, tied with Claude Giroux (I know, I know) for 11th, and 30/1 odds for the Art Ross, again tied for 11th, this time with Steven Stamkos and Ryan Getzlaf.

Oh, and don’t think those two are the ones getting all the love: Kris Letang has 7/1 odds, tied with Brent Burns, Duncan Keith, and P.K. Subban, to win the Norris Trophy. They’re behind just Erik Karlsson (3/1) and Drew Doughty (6/1).

Here are the full lists, courtesy of Bovada. You’ve gotta love Sid’s odds.
