Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues favorites to win Stanley Cup

The parity in the NHL is evident as the regular season winds down. There is no clear-cut favorite to win the Stanley Cup this season as there are several teams close to each other both in the standings and in talent.

As it currently stands, the Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues are tied as the favorites to finish as champions, each coming in at + 495 in NHL futures betting.

The Canucks are currently tied with the New York Rangers for the most points in the league and sit in first place in the Western Conference. The Blues are just one point behind them. The Penguins are only in fourth place in the East, but have the second-most points in the conference and the second-best goal differential in the league.

Pittsburgh’s chances rest plenty on the health of star Sidney Crosby, who is playing now but has been dogged by concussions.The New York Rangers and Boston Bruins’ odds of winning the Stanley Cup are set at +525. The Rangers look poised to finish as the top seed in the East, while the Bruins will likely finish second.

Stanley Cup Betting Odds to Win

Boston is the defending champion. The other team given a decent shot is the Detroit Red Wings, who listed at +625.

Longer shots to win the championship are the Philadelphia Flyers +1100, the New Jersey Devils +1200, the Los Angeles Kings +1300, the Chicago Blackhawks +1350, the Nashville Predators +1500, the San Jose Sharks +1500, the Washington Capitals +1700, the Buffalo Sabres +2000, the Ottawa Senators +2000, the Florida Panthers +2100, the Phoenix Coyotes +2500 and the Dallas Stars +2600.

Last year’s NHL playoffs were exciting and hard to predict. Judging by the odds, this year’s postseason could bring more of the same, and whichever team wins the Stanley Cup will pay out nicely in NHL hockey futures.
