Edmonton Oilers Odds To Win The Stanley Cup 2017

Edmonton Oilers Odds To Win The Stanley Cup 2017
Could this be the year Edmonton returns to postseason glory? Despite receiving the first pick, during four of the last seven NHL Drafts, the Oilers haven’t made the playoffs since they lost to Carolina in the Stanley Cup Finals back in 2006. Ahead of the Hurricanes (7) and Buffalo Sabres (5) that decade long drought is currently the longest streak in the league. Let’s check on things in Oil Country.

Edmonton Oilers Outright Winners Odds 2017

From Taylor Hall, to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nail Yakupov and Connor McDavid, a ton of raw talent has landed in the “City of Champions” over the last seven years. Hall and Yakupov have moved on and the team chemistry change has helped the Oilers. Edmonton was strong out of the NHL 2016-17 starting gate with a 7-2-0 record in October and they have been in the playoff hunt ever since. Currently fourth in the Pacific Division, the Oilers are three points behind Anaheim in the battle for second place. Here are the Edmonton Oilers outright Stanley Cup winner odds furnished by Bodog.

Edmonton Oilers Bodog Sportsbook 2017 Stanley Cup Futures Bettings Odds

Tagged with a +2500 overall NHL Championship money line price, Edmonton are behind 13 teams as longshots to hoist the Cup on the Bodog NHL futures board. The numbers are little better to claim the Western Conference title, as their odds are +1200 in that race. Neither of those lines are very surprising as the Oilers have scuffled recently as they just posted a 4-5-1 recent record. Prior to busting out with a 7-1 destruction of Dallas on Tuesday, scoring was a problem for Edmonton as they scored one goal or less in eight of their previous sixteen contests. Overall, the Oilers are 12th with a 2.81 GPG average and their 2.57 goals allowed per game is good for 11th best in the NHL. 

Positioning battles during the NHL stretch drive are going to be awesome. Huge fans of Fire on Ice action, we love the fact that Calgary and Edmonton are both playing meaningful hockey in March. A long playoff run by either Alberta team would certainly be a boost during what has been a fiscal downtime in Oil Country. While the Battle of Alberta regular season series is already over, the Oilers outscored the Flames 21-11 during a 4-0 sweep, that rivalry could heat up as a playoff scrap for the first time since 1991. One of the best stretches of the sports betting year, it’s four screen season as bettors are following the NBA playoff races, NCAAB March Madness and MLB Spring Training.

StatsGuru Scenario: Edmonton is a nice mix of youth and experience. Connor McDavid has lived up to his lofty billing as he’s in a three-way tie with Brad Marchand and Patrick Kane with 79 points in the NHL scoring race. In his second full season, Leon Draisaitl has been a star with 58 points over 69 games. Milan Lucic and Patrick Maroon both played a ton of postseason hockey with Boston and Anaheim. In a wide-open West, a ten-unit investment delivers a 250-unit return at Bodog. That’s worth a leap of faith on the Oilers bringing the Cup back to Alberta for the first time since 1990. 

Edmonton Oilers Odds to Make the Playoffs

Counting their home contest against Boston tonight, the Oilers have 13 contests left on their slate. Twelve points back of Chicago for top spot in the Western Conference, and ten points behind San Jose in the Pacific Division, Edmonton is too far back in those races. That leaves second and third place in the Pacific plus two Wild Card spots within reach for the Oilers who have favourable odds to make the playoffs. Edmonton is four points ahead of St. Louis and eight clear of Los Angeles in the Wild Card race. With a game in hand on both of them, Anaheim and Calgary have three and one point leads respectively in what is a torrid battle for the second and third Pacific Division seeds. 

Most simply, the Oilers magic number to clinch a spot in the second season is nine – five wins plus four Kings losses for example. How far do you think the Oilers playoff slick will spread?
