2023 NHL Matches to Bet On the Opening Week

We have just one more week until the start of the National Hockey League. The 2023-2024 season should be another fantastic one. We cannot wait for the teams to drop the puck and see where the action takes the season.

2023 Must Bet Games for NHL Week 1 | MyBookie Hockey Preseason Preview

2023–24 NHL season | 107th season of the National Hockey League
NHL Season: October 10, 2023 – June 2024


Seattle Kraken at Vegas Golden Knights (-175)

NHL Odds: Seattle +1.5; Vegas -1.5 / Seattle +133; Vegas -186 / O/U 6.5
Tuesday October 10th, 2023 at 10:30 pm | ESPN, ESPN+
T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, Nevada

A rematch of the Western Conference Finals a season ago. The Kraken will open their second season in the National Hockey League.

This should still be a talented hockey team, with much of the roster returning. Eeli Tolvanen came to the team off waivers from Nashville a season ago, scoring 16 goals in 48 games. Seeing him with the Seattle offense over the entire season will be fun. They will be raising the banner on their Stanley Cup title for Vegas.

It was not too long ago when Vegas was the new team in the league. Logan Thompson is back for the Golden Knights and should give Adin Hill healthy competition between the pipes. Vegas is +1175 to win, while Seattle is listed at +3700.

Colorado Avalanche at Los Angeles Kings

NHL Odds: Colorado +1.5; LA -1.5 / Colorado -119; LA -116 / O/U 6.5
Wednesday, October 11th, 2023 at 10:00 pm | TNT
Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, California

Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche are not too far removed from winning the Stanley Cup. This team is still loaded with talent. While they have lost some skilled players and they continue to age, this is still a great team. Going to the Staples Center is always a fun game, especially to open up the season.

The Kings are a team to watch in 2023, as they will be pesky out of the Western Conference. Los Angeles is +1975 to win the Stanley Cup, while Colorado is +920.

St. Louis Blues at Dallas Stars

Thursday, October 12th, 2023 at 8:00 pm | NHLPP,ESPN+
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

A pair of Western Conference teams wrapped up the 2022-2023 season with a pair of games.

Dallas was one of the top teams in the Western Conference a season ago. Dallas is going to be one of the teams to beat again this season, as well. The Stars are 4th in the Western Conference at +1525.

St. Louis has some young talent but is still in a bit of a rebuild. Craig Berube’s squad may have a chance if Jordan Binnington can figure it out between the pipes. The Blues are big underdogs to win the cup at +6000.

Friday, October 13th, 2023 at 8:00 pm | ESPN+, Hulu
Capital One Arena, Washington, DC

Two franchises with a history of success and solid players will get together in the nation’s capital. It’s always fun when these two teams get together.

The Penguins and Capitals missed the postseason a season ago out of the Eastern Conference, but both have high hopes to get back this season. The Penguins are 8th best odds to win the Stanley Cup out of the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh is listed at +2800.

The Capitals will need some young players to take a step forward. If so, they will be a team to contend with. The Capitals are +7000 to win it all.

A battle of the north. The Minnesota Wild is out of the Western Conference, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are out of the Eastern Conference. Toronto finished strong a season ago, came away with 111 points, and beat Tampa Bay in the first round of the postseason.

Toronto is one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup in the summer of 2024. The Maple Leafs are +900. For Minnesota, they are +3000 after finishing third in the Central with 103 points. That was the sixth most in all of the West.
