The National Hockey League season has about two months left of the regular season, then we turn our attention to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The MyBookie.ag odds for the Stanley Cup seem to change with the week, pending how well or poor a team is doing. Let’s take a look at the updated NHL Stanley Cup betting odds.
Updated View to the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Odds
— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) February 23, 2016
Favorites to Win the Stanley Cup
The overall favorite to win the 2016 Stanley Cup is the Washington Capitals. The Capitals are leading their division, and blowing away the competition in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals have a ton of scoring, and their defense has been much improved. The Capitals are +250 to win the Stanley Cup.
The current favorite to win the 2016 Stanley Cup out of the Western Conference is the Chicago Blackhawks. The defending NHL champion is listed at +450 over at MyBookie.ag! The Blackhawks last year downed the Tampa Bay Lightning. After a couple offseason moves, the Blackhawks appear to be in position to strike once again out of the West.
Stars and Kings Have a Shot at the Cup
Third on the updated NHL Stanley Cup Odds list is the Dallas Stars. The Stars have kind of come out of nowhere this season, and been at or near the top of the Western Conference all season long. The Dallas Stars come into this week at +650 to win the Stanley Cup.
Up next is the Los Angeles Kings. Fourth overall, and third in the Western Conference. Many of the current Kings were on the 2014 championship team that Los Angeles put together. Jonathan Quick is the key factor for Los Angeles. The Kings are listed at +800 to win the Stanley Cup.
Several Other NHL Teams and Their Odds
The next two are also out of the Western Conference. Two teams that have kind of been snake bitten by injuries are the San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues. Remember, St. Louis had the best record going into the postseason a season ago. The Sharks and Blues are both listed at +1000 to win the Stanley Cup.
Out of the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers are next. Playing their games at Madison Square Garden, and having some of the best fans in the world, the Rangers look to be the top threat to compete with Washington. The Rangers are +1200. Another team that is +1200 is the Florida Panthers. They have been a huge surprise in the National Hockey League this season. Florida has offense, but can they defend well enough in postseason play?
There is a good look at the best NHL Odds at MyBookie.ag to win the Stanley Cup for 2016. Enjoy the rest of the regular season, and best of luck with your NHL betting!
