Updated Odds to Win the Stanley Cup Before Conference Finals

Updated Odds to Win the Stanley Cup Before Conference Finals

Three of the four spots in the Conference Finals are reserved, with the Seattle Kraken and Dallas Stars meeting in game seven on Monday night to determine who takes the last spot in the NHL’s final four. 

We’re looking ahead to the Conference finals and each team’s updated odds to win the Stanley Cup now that they are four wins away from playing for the greatest trophy in sports.


Updated Odds to Win the Stanley Cup Before Conference Finals

Eastern Conference : (M1) Carolina Hurricanes vs. (WC2) Florida Panthers
Western Conference: TBD vs TBD


Carolina Hurricanes (+216)

The Carolina Hurricanes were a preseason betting favorite to win the Stanley Cup and remained near the top of the odds all season long. The Canes were the first team to secure a spot in the conference finals, making good on their preseason favorite status.

The Canes are excellent defensively, with their only real weakness being a powerplay that underachieves compared to some of their competition. Nonetheless, the majority of the game is played five-on-five, and the Canes are excellent on both ends of the ice.

The Hurricanes should be the favorite to win the Stanley Cup and hold the head-to-head season series advantage over the four other teams still alive in the NHL, except for one: the Vegas Golden Knights.

If we have to pick one team to win the Stanley Cup from the teams left in the playoffs, it’s the Canes.

Florida Panthers (+320)

After winning the President’s Trophy last season and being involved in a blockbuster trade in the offseason, the Florida Panthers struggled throughout the regular season.

Despite being the final Wild Card team in the Eastern Conference and getting the gift of the best regular season team in NHL history as their first-round opponent, the Panthers shocked the work, overcoming a 3-1 deficit to eliminate the Boston Bruins in seven games. The Panthers made quick work of the Toronto Maple Leafs in round two, winning the series 4-1.

Having defeated two of the top-four teams in the league to get to the Eastern Conference finals, the Panthers will have to defeat the Carolina Hurricanes, who finished second to only Boston, to play in their second Stanley Cup.

The Panthers must improve their performances that lead to a 1-2 head-to-head record with the Hurricanes to improve their odds to win the Stanley Cup.

But, honestly, we like their chances at this point.

Vegas Golden Knights (+230)

The Vegas Golden Knights are the favorite to emerge from the Western Conference to play in the franchise’s second Stanley Cup final. 

Throughout the season, VGK has endured a litany of injuries, especially with goaltenders, but has constantly been near the top of the Pacific Division. More importantly, Adin Hill has been excellent and withstood everything the Edmonton Oilers – the highest-scoring team in the league – and seemed to have the antidote for the McDavid-Draisaitl duo often enough throughout the series. 

While we don’t know who Vegas will face in the Western Conference finals, we like their chances of shutting down either Seattle’s or Dallas’ offenses on the way to the Stanley Cup Final.

Dallas Stars (+540) / Seattle Kraken (+1400)

The Dallas Stars might have better odds to win the Stanley Cup compared to the Seattle Kraken, but they’re another sub-par performance from Jake Oettinger away from watching the two newest teams that joined the NHL play for the Western Conference championship.

And we like the Kraken’s chances to pull off the road upset in game seven.

Seattle won games six and seven to eliminate the defending champion Colorado Avalanche in round one. The Kraken won game six at home to force Monday night’s game seven.

The Stars are the better team on paper and have a slight statistical advantage going into game seven.

If we’re pressed to pick a winner for game seven, we’re taking the Kraken to pull off the upset.

But a Dallas-Vegas Western Conference Finals does sound like a lot of fun.
