2021 NHL Division Odds and Stanley Cup Futures Update – Knights seize gold position in betting


The action on the ice continues to heat up, with the NHL’s four restructured divisions turning into hotly contested races. Focusing on a favorite or spotting a risky bet that offers long-term value is often the best way to attack futures bets. Last week, bettors quietly began targeting the Minnesota Wild, who have quietly won six of their last 10 games, while all the attention in the West is focused on the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Colorado Avalanche. The Wild, which last week was offered at odds of +4500, has now dropped to +1900 this week. The Edmonton Oilers offer +2500 odds value thanks to owning the league’s two scoring leaders Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning, who had a +800 odds last week, has once again become the overall betting favorite with a +500 odds. The Toronto Maple Leafs, who own the best record in the NHL, continue to see their odds fall and now find themselves as the second overall betting option with odds of +550.
