Maple Leafs Odds To Win The Stanley Cup 2017

Maple Leafs Outright Winners Odds 2017

Adding to their regular season wagering lines, which are posted on every NHL game, the Bodog betting board is now also loaded with National Hockey League playoff futures odds. Those offers include the outright Division winners, the Eastern and Western Conference Champions and the 2017 Stanley Cup winner. While there is still plenty of time for handicappers to place their NHL postseason futures wagers – now is the best time to get the sharpest prices. With work ahead of them to make the playoff party, the Maple Leafs outright winners odds are the longshot variety.

Maple Leafs Odds To Win The Stanley Cup 2017

Aiming for their first postseason appearance since 2012-13, and just their second visit to the NHL playoff party in twelve years, Toronto is currently in a huge battle with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division. The top three teams will earn an automatic entry in the Stanley Cup chase and Toronto is still in the fight for an Eastern Conference Wild Card entry as well. Bettors who may be thinking about taking a leap of faith with the Buds are receiving very robust prices on the futures market at Bodog. Lagging behind seven teams, Toronto is tied with the New York Islanders with a (+1800) money line to win the Eastern Conference title. Trailing seventeen squads, the Maple Leafs are even bigger underdogs with a bloated (+4000 ML) Stanley Cup Championship futures line.

Enjoying a night off tonight (10/03/17) following a clutch 4-2 win over Philadelphia, Toronto is two points behind Boston in the race for the third and final guaranteed Atlantic Division playoff berth. The Buds have a game in hand on the Bruins and these Original Six rivals will play their fourth and final regular season contest on March 20, 2017. Toronto is 3-0 versus Boston this season and they won those contests by a 14-7 margin. Claiming third place in the Eastern Conference appears to be the Leafs clearest playoff path. They are also just one point out of Wild Card position as they chase the Islanders with both teams having 16 matches on their 2016-17 NHL regular season schedule.

My Team's Next MatchToronto Maple Leafs

StatsGuru Scenario: Toronto is stacked with young talent and they have an ultra-rich list of solid hockey minds guiding the ship. That list includes the leagues best head coach since Scotty Bowman - Mike Babcock. While we believe bigger and brighter things are on the horizon in the center of the universe, it is difficult to recommend any of the Toronto futures odds at this point. That includes the Leafs (+2200) Atlantic Division title price as they trail three teams including the Canadiens who are ten points up in first place. Ottawa is eight points up in second place and passing the Senators may be a taller task than catching Montreal. We suggest looking into the red hot Flames (+2800) as a Canadian longshot squad with a chance. Calgary is playing confident hockey. A caution here is the Stampede City Crew has a very tough final 15 game slate - as the Flames schedule illustrates.

Maple Leafs Odds to Make the Playoffs

Changing on a daily basis, due to their own results and those of the teams they are chasing, the Maple Leafs odds to make the postseason is currently hovering around the 46% level. Toronto has eight game at home and on the road including a four-game homestand to close out the season. Of those 16 contests seven are against teams that currently occupy a playoff position plus two games against both Tampa Bay and Florida who are three and five points behind the Buds respectively.

We would like to check the public pulse on Toronto's playoff chances. Can the Leafs survive to the second season or will they fall and get raked away before the party begins? Head to Facebook and tell us how you feel about Maple Leafs odds to claim the Stanley Cup during the NHL 2016-17 Championship series.
