NHL Stanley Cup FuturesThere is just one week remaining in the 2021 NHL season, and the playoffs begin soon. Now is a great time to take a look at the Stanley Cup Futures betting odds and other wagers on the NHL betting menu.

These odds have been changing throughout the season, but they are pretty well set now. As teams get eliminated, they will change yet again, which is why now is the best time to bet.

There are three main categories of teams, and there is a pretty clear break between each group. It’s up to you to determine which category to focus on and which team to back, but here are the current odds.

Favorites

  • Colorado Avalanche +450
  • Vegas Golden Knights +550
  • Toronto Maple Leafs +650
  • Tampa Bay Lightning +700
  • Carolina Hurricanes +900

The West Division was loaded this season, and the Avalanche and the Golden Knights rose to the top. Colorado is the favorite, but Vegas has proven that it knows how to win in the postseason.

Toronto is finally a threat to win it all again, and Auston Matthews is likely the league MVP. These three teams feel like the best bets to win it all, but it won’t be easy.

The Lightning are the defending champs, and this veteran group won’t be easy to beat. Carolina won the Central Division this season, and it has a roster that knows how to score some goals.

All five of these teams could easily win it all, but crazy things happen in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Contenders

  • Boston Bruins +1300
  • Washington Capitals +1300
  • Pittsburgh Penguins +1400
  • New York Islanders +1500
  • Florida Panthers +1800

You will find three recent NHL champions in this group, and that always makes them dangerous. If a team from the group of favorites doesn’t win, your best bet is taking a top contender when betting hockey.

The Bruins and Capitals are veteran teams that play with an edge and some toughness. Both teams have proven to be tough to eliminate, and both had terrific seasons.

The Islanders and Panthers are two very interesting teams that could be ready to make surprising playoff runs. Florida is extremely young, but its head coach, Joel Quenneville, has seen plenty of postseason success.

If you are going to bet on a contender to win it all, then there is no better time than the present.

Underdogs

  • Edmonton Oilers +2000
  • Minnesota Wild +2200
  • Montreal Canadiens +2400
  • St. Louis Blues +2400
  • Winnipeg Jets +2400
  • Nashville Predators +3200

When it comes to betting on the NHL, sometimes picking the underdog is the best way to go. These games tend to be decided by luck, and an underdog team can get hot at the right time.

The Wild are a team to watch out for, as they are led by rookie Kirill Kaprizov. Minnesota was not expected to make the playoffs, but it has been a tough team to stop.

Always keep an eye on the Blues as well, as they are a recent Stanley Cup champion. There is a good chance at least two teams from this group advance to the second round.
