The 2022 NFL season may have not even started yet, but that doesn't mean people aren't already looking ahead to the biggest game of the campaign: the Super Bowl. After the Los Angeles Rams and Bengals put on a show in February, people are now focused on next winter's contest. With that, people can't wait […]
2017 Stanley Cup Outright Odds And Prediction
Enough is enough! It’s time for some NHL hockey betting. Half the fun of the season is speculating what’s going to happen, and argue about who’s going to do what. It’s amazing how polar opinions can be, even among the game’s most respected insiders and analysts. For those looking to place bets, here's a glance at your 2016/17 Stanley Cup odds.
2017 Stanley Cup Betting Odds
Decent pick: The Sharks Win the Cup
Peter DeBoer finally led the San Jose Sharks to the Stanley Cup finals, where they won a pair of games. Is the next logical step winning 4 games and the Cup? Yes and no. They’ve got all the tools and enough youth and experience to move forward without aging. Which is the blueprint you want. But the fact remains that they will have to fight VERY hard to win the West again, and then likely meet the Pens again in the finals. Of course, it’s possible. But if they’re going to make it happen, every single player has to play better than they did last year.
Wild pick: The Hurricanes Makes the Playoff
This is a fun one to talk about. The Carolina Hurricanes have not seen the playoffs since 2009, and people want to see the core of Jeff Skinner, Elias Lindholm and Jordan Staal break through. They came close last year-- close enough to make you feel like their next step is inevitable.
Inevitable, no. Likely, yes. The NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL all have history books full of young teams that fizzled before that didn’t just fail to live up to their potential, they failed to even approach it. You need chemistry, good health, reliable coaching and a bit of luck to keep moving forward. You also need a commitment to improving each year.
We feel like the Canes can do it. But it’s by no means a lock. Looking to bet on the 2017 Stanley Cup champions? Really, any of the last year’s final 4 are a strong bet. Anyone outside that is a going to have big-pay-day-odds. But will be that way for a reason.
2017 Stanley Cup Preview And Prediction
The Pens Repeat: +800
This is not a bold prediction, given this roster. But history tell us it’s bold. The Champs are on top and are going to be very hard to move. Still, going back-to-back is hard as hell. Nobody has done it since the Red Wings in 1997-1998. And it’s never been harder to do than it is in today’s NHL, with depth of the league, the NHL draft, and the salary cap. It’s hard enough to win your conference in back-to-back years. Even the 2010 Pittsburgh Penguins looked stacked and poised to build a long run of Cups but they didn't. And 2017’s team is not as good on paper as 2010 was but they're still the best call... Never trust amature advice!
