Odds To Win 2019 NHL Stanley Cup

NHL Betting

The 2018-2019 NHL season is right around the corner, as the action 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 Washington Capitals are the defending Stanley Cup champions, as they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2018 Stanley Cup Final.

Neither Washington nor Vegas is the betting favorite to win the 2019 Stanley Cup. The Tampa Bay Lightning begin the 2018-2019 season as the betting favorite. They finished with 113 points a year ago but lost in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals to Washington. The second choice in the betting is the Nashville Predators. They finished with 117 points last season to win the Presidents Trophy for the best record in the NHL. They were upset in the Western Conference semifinals, but they are expected to bounce back in a big way in the 2018-2019 regular season.

Other top contenders to win the 2019 Stanley Cup are the Toronto Maple Leafs who have superstars Auston Mathews and John Tavares, and the Winnipeg Jets who won 52 games a year ago and have sniper Patrik Laine. Not to be left out are the Pittsburgh Penguins who boast superstar Sidney Crosby.

Even though the Stanley Cup playoffs are often incredibly unpredictable, the ultimately champion has been one of just a handful of teams. Since 2009, the only champions have been the Capitals (once), the Penguins (twice), the Chicago Blackhawks (three times), the Boston Bruins (once) and the Los Angeles Kings (twice).

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.
