With plenty of the usual suspects on the sidelines like the Tampa Bay Lightning, Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins, the Stanley Cup race looks wide open, although the Carolina Hurricanes appear to be the favorites right now. moment.
According to Betano.ca, here are the current odds for the Stanley Cup winners:
Carolina Hurricanes: +275
Edmonton Oilers: +325
Florida Panthers: +500
Vegas Golden Knights: +550
Dallas Stars: +600
Seattle Kraken: +1400
Toronto Maple Leafs: +1400
New Jersey Devils: +1700
Now, it helps that the Hurricanes are the only clear favorites who are currently on the verge of advancing to the second round, as the Oilers, Golden Knights and Stars are tied in their respective series, while the Leafs and Devils have to riding incredible returns just to stay alive, so the advantage certainly favors them. That said, the Oilers are pretty close despite being tied in their series with the Golden Knights, so maybe the Hurricanes aren’t the clear favorites in this run.
Frank Seravalli and Mike McKenna spoke of the Canes as betting favorites on Daily Faceoff Live, discussing whether or not they thought the Canes would live up to their chances and be the most likely to win the Cup, or whether their lack of high- the final score will hold them in the end.
Mike McKenna: Not with a 17% power play. I keep doubting them, which means they’ll probably do it, and Jordan Martinook will win the Conn Smythe.
Frank Seravalli: I’m going to say the second game won’t happen, but he might win the second-round Conn Smythe.
Yeah, I don’t see the Canes as a big Stanley Cup favorite. Betano.ca had them earlier today at +275, I believe the Oilers were at +325, so some good bets there.
