NHL playoffs odds and betting trends

There have been just seven different Stanley Cup winners since 2009 with the Blackhawks winning thrice, the Penguins winning three times, the Kings winning twice and the Lightning winning twice.

Of the 10 teams to win the Cup since the 2004-05 lockout, only the Hurricanes (2005-06) and Blues (2018-19) have won after missing the playoffs the previous season.

NHL playoffs odds: How to bet the Stanley Cup Playoffs

NHL playoffs odds and futures lines opened last offseason and have been adjusted throughout the year. Odds have risen and fallen to reflect the standings as underdogs and favorites change place amid losing and winning streaks.

The odds to win the Stanley Cup are always the main draw.

As mentioned above, the Avalanche were the favorites to win the Cup just prior to the start of the 2021 NHL season. Colorado was +700 at DK. If you got the Avs at that price in January, and Colorado had actually pulled it off, you would have gotten a profit of $700 on a $100 bet. If you wagered $10 at that price for the Avs, you would net $70. Unfortunately for Avs bettors, Colorado was dumped by the Golden Knights in the semi-finals – making an Avs Cup futures bet a losing one for 2021.

Game lines will include over/unders for goal totals typically ranging from 5 to 6,.5 with odds typically from -120 to +120 on either side. A spread or puck line of +/- 1.5 will handicap the favorites by asking if they’ll win by 1 or more goals. Odds are commonly set at -110 for both teams, whereas a moneyline could price the favorites at a much chalkier -250 with an underdog at +200 or higher to win the game outright.

Player props will be released closer to the beginning of the postseason. These will include a pool of contenders to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the playoffs. Odds can range from +100 to +10000 and will reflect both a player’s point production and abilities, and the chances of his team winning the Stanley Cup. Game props will ask simple Yes/No questions such as whether they’ll score a goal. There can also be an over/under line for how many shots on goal they’ll register or saves a goalie will make.
