There was a big move atop the Conn Smythe oddsboard following the Oilers' 8-1 defeat of the Panthers in Game 4.

Sergei Bobrovsky, who was pulled early in the second period Saturday night, was the overwhelming MVP favorite going into Game 4 at -500. After allowing five goals on 16 shots in the blowout loss, he's now -110 at theScore Bet. That's a 30.9% change in implied odds.

Meanwhile, Aleksander Barkov jumped up the oddsboard from +400 to +125, implying oddsmakers believe the Panthers captain is nearly 25% more likely to win the Conn Smythe following his goaltender's single-game struggle.

With the Panthers still at -1200 (92.3% implied probability) to win the series, it's become a two-horse race for the Conn Smythe.

Connor McDavid is +800 and the only Oilers player with odds shorter than +7500.

Edmonton is +700 (12.5% implied probability) to erase its three-game deficit and win the Stanley Cup.

Game 5 is set for Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET in Sunrise.
