We’re beyond the midway mark of the NHL season, which makes it the perfect time to examine the hopes and dreams of some select clubs and determine if they're contenders or pretenders.
The NHL's Pacific Division has been up for grabs since the Edmonton Oilers collapsed after a red hot start. The Arizona Coyotes have seen their odds decrease despite some mediocre play in December, while the Vancouver Canucks are on fire, but are not being taken seriously by oddsmakers.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues are two of the hotter teams in the NHL at the moment, but should bettors be buying into them? We profile both clubs here looking for a potential play.
In this week's edition of our Stanley Cup odds update, we profile a pair of West Coast underdogs hoping to hoist Lord Stanley’s hardware in the spring.
In this week’s Stanley Cup odds update, we take a look at two early season favorites on the decline to determine whether they can turn the ship around at better odds than they had just three weeks ago.
The Vegas Golden Knights are a mediocre 9-8-3 with just about a quarter of the season in the books, which includes a subpar 3-4-3 run over their last 10 games. They’ve dropped four straight contests, two of which occurred against sub-.500 teams in the Blackhawks and Red Wings, to fall to fifth place in the Pacific Division. And yet, despite their struggles, they still have the second shortest odds to win the Stanley Cup.
Oddsmakers have shifted some Stanley Cup future wager odds over the last week, and as a result the Boston Bruins are now +700 favorites to bring home Lord Stanley’s hardware for the first time since 2011. They were +850 as recently as November 1. Are they worth a wager at this point in time?
