NHL Offseason Stanley Cup Futures Update

All is quiet on the CSB Stanley Cup futures betting board as William Hill held firm on odds since the NHL Draft. Stick with us we’ll update the lines as they change. in the meantime, bookmakers at this UK based betting legend have added a couple new futures options as they’ve posted “Winning Conference” and “Winning Division” lines. Home to three of the top five 2017-18 Stanley Cup favorites, Pittsburgh, Washington and Tamp Bay, the East is favoured to keep Lord Stanley’s Mug as they are -125 chalk over the EVEN West odds.

With the Penguins looking for a NHL Championship 3-Peat, plus some thinking that this is finally the Washington Capitals year, the Metropolitan Division is top chalk (+210) to claim the Cup. It’s not a runaway though as the Central, which features Chicago, Minnesota and Dallas, is a close second with a +240 money line. Led by Toronto and Montreal, the Atlantic (+250) is third and, despite being home to second overall NHL Championship favorite Edmonton Oilers, the Pacific is the overall Division longshot with a +300 money line.

NHL Hockey Future Bets Explained

Bettors looking past a Stanley Cup selection have a wealth of wagering options throughout the NHL regular season as online bookmakers also offer odds on the NHL Division and Conference Champions. Cup leaders are usually the top chalk in those categories but, if you feel a team can get hot, backing an underdog division contender can pay off handsomely. Anaheim catching San Jose, and winning the 2017 Pacific Division, is classic example. We recommended that +550 money line and bettors cashed in when the Ducks soared and the Sharks tanked late in the campaign.

While the numbers will stay fairly steady during the offseason, NHL futures action will be featured on betting boards until the first preseason puck drops. Action ramps up then as game total, puck line and straight up odds, LIVE in game wagering, plus team and player props start appearing in late September.
