Here’s a look at 10 teams worthy of closer consideration when putting money down on NHL futures.
Let’s break it down.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Colorado Avalanche +750
Outside the crease there weren’t many questions on this Avalanche roster, but Philipp Grubauer’s settled the goaltending questions, at least for the time being. The team’s been dominant in puck possession and has one of the best top lines in hockey.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Tampa Bay Lightning +750
Even without its top offensive weapon in Nikita Kucherov, the Lightning led the league in goals per game and goal differential through their first dozen games.
The defending Stanley Cup champs are rolling right along, but then again, the regular season’s never been their problem. We’ll have to wait and see if they’ve really broken their postseason curse.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Vegas Golden Knights +750
Marc-Andre Fleury looked like he was on his way out of town but he’s now leapfrogged Robin Lehner on the depth chart thanks to a strong start to the season. On the other end of the ice, the offense is creating – and converting on – a ton of scoring chances. This remains one of the league’s elite rosters which speaks to the terrific job the front office did during the expansion process.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Toronto Maple Leafs +800
The Maple Leafs tinkered with their roster in the offseason to become a more complete team, and that’s already paying serious dividends.
They’ve been the biggest beneficiary of realignment, facing a much softer schedule than normal against their Canadian counterparts. If Auston Matthews keeps scoring at the rate he has been, he’ll be in the Hart Trophy conversation at the end of the year.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Boston Bruins +800
The Bruins entered the season with a lot of question marks along the blue line, but that group could end up as a strength by year’s end. David Pastrnak remains one of the league’s elite goal scorers, finding the back of the next at a rate matched by only a small handful of players over the past few seasons.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Philadelphia Flyers +1700
The Flyers find themselves well positioned in the standings, but there are some holes to poke in that record. They rank at or near the bottom of the league in shots per game and shot attempts share at even strength. They’ve been better in past years so there’s time for a turnaround.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Florida Panthers +2200
We knew there would be some anomalies in this strange season, and the Panthers have been one example. The team’s really come flying out of the gates, with a roster we’re used to seeing underachieve finally showing some of its potential. If Sergei Bobrovsky can deliver on expectations, this team will be a real force to be reckoned with.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Edmonton Oilers +2500
There may not be a better opportunity for the Oilers to take advantage of the pairing of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl than this season in the weakened North Division. Mike Smith’s return between the pipes has helped, but he’s notoriously streaky. It would be good to see them make a move at the deadline.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Pittsburgh Penguins +2800
The Penguins have been held back by terrible play between the pipes. Last year they had two goalies playing well, now they’re struggling to settle the situation.
2021 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Chicago Blackhawks +6600
Kevin Lankinen has been a revelation between the pipes, helping Chicago to a surprisingly strong start. Don’t expect it to last.
