      NHL Futures: Week 3 Odds Update

      Stanley Cup Championship Week 3 Contenders

      Checking the NHL standings, as we roll into Week 3, we find some surprises at the top and bottom of both Conferences. Playing above expectations, New Jersey leads the East standings as the Devils are off to a 4-1-0 start. That hot run has pushed the Devils Stanley Cup futures odds from +10000 to +4000 on the NHL betting board at SportsInteraction. Toronto, one of our preseason choices, is a tiebreaker behind New Jersey along with four other squads that are tied with eight points. Mid level chalk three weeks ago, the Rangers (1-5-0) and Canadians (1-3-1) are both underachieving.

      Over in the Western Conference, low level preseason chalk squads are also leading the way. As one of two teams undefeated in regulation time, Ottawa (3-0-2) in the East is the other, Los Angels is leading the way as the Kings are sitting with a 4-0-1 record. That has moved the SoCal Crews price from +2200 down to +1700 at the Bet365 sportsbook. Leading the West with 25 goals - Chicago (4-1-1) is a tiebreaker behind Los Angeles and their current Cup price sits at (+1100) at Bet365. Out to a 4-1-0 start, the Vegas Golden Knights Cup line has dropped from +10000 to +5000

      16/10/17 Eastern Conference Championship Odds Refresh

      23/05/18 Game 7 East Final Update: Liking Tampa Bay's East title chances - we stayed away from hedging our investment below. A Bolts win tonight earns a +1300 return while a Caps victory is a -200 loss. Down to a one game showdown, between the Lightning and Washington Capitals, bettor's have an opportunity to back up this bet. Betway is currently offering the best money line (+125) so a simple 200-Unit investment guarantees no loss and a +1100 or +50 return. Depending on your betting style, kicking it up to a 500-Unit Caps ticket will return +800 TBL and +425 WAS. If you made this wager - we suggest protecting it. Enjoy Game 7 - looking forward to a good one.

      Net Return +425: Washington 4-0 Game 7 and Capitals (4-3) Eastern Conference Champs.

      Normally reflective of each other, the order on our Eastern Conference Championship futures board doesn't match the order of the East standings as we head into Week 3. Playing beyond their normal defense first mantra, New Jersey is sitting first in the East and they are the second highest scoring (4.20 GPG) team in the NHL. That hasn't impressed bookmakers much as the Devils are priced from +2200 at Bet365 to a +3300 best price. We still advise against buying in on New Jersey.

      At the other end of the spectrum, Toronto, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay have moved into a tie with a +425 NHL Championship price at SportsInteraction. The Maple Leafs and Lightning are both 4-1-0 while the Penguins (3-2-1) have not lost since dropping their first two games. Detroit, who enter the history books as the first team to beat the 4-1-0 expansion Golden Knights, just went 3-1-0 on a long road trip and the Red Wings price fell (+7500 to +2800) as their win total went up.

      16/10/17 Western Conference Championship Odds Refresh

      Underperforming, Edmonton's 1-3-0 record is the second worst Western Conference mark. The Oilers have dropped three straight and sit just one point ahead of the Arizona Coyotes in the Pacific Division basement battle. Bet365 is the first book to bail on Edmonton as they jacked up their price (+350 to +520) week over week. We respect Oilers coach Todd McLellan and believe that he'll get Edmonton rolling in the right direction. Chicago (4-1-1) is now consensus second chalk in the West.

      Leading the way, as the lone team that's still unbeaten in regulation time in the West, Los Angeles (4-0-1) has seen their preseason price shrink (+1200 to +850) considerably. The Kings 1.80 team goals against average is second only to Ottawa (1.60) and goaltender Jonathan Quick appears to have put his 2016-17 season ruining injury woes behind him. After opening with four straight wins, St. Louis (4-2-0) lost two in a row but SportsInteraction still dropped (+1400 to +750) their price.

        While the 2021 NHL entry draft isn't viewed as being as deep as the 2020 class, as with Alexis Lafreniere last season, there appears to be a consensus No. 1 - Michigan's Owen Power. The Wolverines freshman defenceman didn't look out of place playing with the men at the IIHF world championship, winning a gold medal skating for Canada, playing in the top defensive pairing. Power is almost certainly going to the Buffalo Sabres.
