2019-20 NHL Stanley Cup Betting Odds

NHL Betting

The 2019-2020 NHL season begins in October and runs through the presentation of the Stanley Cup to the champion in June. The 31 teams will fight it out for the right to win the Stanley Cup, the oldest trophy in all of the sports. The St. Louis Blues are the defending Stanley Cup champions, as they defeated the Boston Bruins in last year’s Stanley Cup Final.

Neither St. Louis nor Boston is the betting favorite to win the 2020 Stanley Cup. The Tampa Bay Lightning begin the 2019-2020 season as the betting favorite. That is nothing new, as they were also the preseason favorite to win the Cup a year ago. The Lightning had one of the best regular seasons in NHL history a year ago, as they went 62-16-4 and finished with 128 points. The second choice in the betting is the Vegas Golden Knights. They finished with 93 points a year ago, but Vegas has turned into a very public team so oddsmakers are keeping the odds on Vegas low.

Other top contenders to win the 2020 Stanley Cup are the Toronto Maple Leafs who have superstars Auston Mathews and John Tavares, and the Boston Bruins who lost last year’s Stanley Cup to the Blues. Speaking of the Blues, they are actually tied for the 5th-best odds to win the 2020 Stanley Cup at about 14-1.

It used to be that the Stanley Cup Champion was fairly predictable, as until the last two years, there had only been four teams that won the title since 2009. The last two seasons have shown that any team can win the Cup, as the Washington Capitals won their first title two years ago and last year the Blues won their first title.  There is no doubt that parity rules when it comes to the NHL Playoffs and there are no true favorites.

The hockey teams will play in 82 games over the course of the regular season to cut the league from 31 teams down to the 16 which get into the postseason.

The clubs are split into four divisions and two conferences. The Eastern Conference has both the Atlantic Division and the Metropolitan Division. In the Atlantic, we have Tampa Bay, Florida, Detroit, Boston, Ottawa, Montreal, Buffalo, and Toronto. The Metropolitan Division has Washington, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Carolina, New Jersey, Columbus, and the Rangers and Islanders. In the Western Conference, the teams are cut into the Pacific Division and the Central Division. The eight teams in the Pacific include Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Arizona, Calgary, Vancouver, Vegas, and Edmonton. The Central Division features Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, Colorado, and Winnipeg.

Each team which finishes in the Top 3 in any division will get into the postseason. The next two top point earners in each conference also get into the playoffs. The second and third-place teams will face off with each other in each division, the winner of which will advance to play either the winner of their division or one of the fourth place teams from the conference. The winners of those series meet the winners from the opposite divisions in their conference, while the victories of the conference finals square off in the coveted Stanley Cup Finals.
