2017 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Lines
The Pens, Hawks or Caps? They are the big 3 this year, according to oddsmakers and NHL experts. But bettors may not be sold. You may be more interested in a sleeper pick like the Mighty Ducks, or the Los Angeles Kings. Both of these teams have championship-level talent and rosters, without championship-level expectations. Either have the potential to make bettors very happy.

They have a new/old coach behind the bench, and this should breathe in a breath of fresh air, while simultaneously bringing in the familiarity of an old feeling. That feeling is winning.

That means these guys are going to presumably hit the ice in mid-season form, by the time the puck drops on the NHL regular season. But that could also mean they have less left in the tank when it comes to the NHL playoffs. And it also could mean a crucial player picks up a nagging injury before the season even starts.
