Written by on December 21, 2018

With the 2018-19 NHL regular season moving closer to the start of a new calendar year and its unofficial midway point of the season, now is a great time to take a look at the most recent updated NHL odds to win the 2019 Stanley Cup. Whether you like a top favorite like Tampa Bay or Nashville, a middle-of-the-pack contender like Columbus or longshot hopeful like Philadelphia, this look at the latest odds to win it all this season will give you the insight you’ll need in order to make the most out of your Stanley Cup futures odds.

Updated 2019 Stanley Cup Odds – December 21st Edition


Tampa Bay Lightning (5/1)

The Lightning (27-7-2) have the best record in all of hockey – and the look of a team more than capable of winning it all this season. Tampa Bay ranks a stupendous first in scoring by averaging a whopping 4.0 goals per game while also ranking a solid 12th in goals allowed (2.9 gpg). Veteran center Steven Stamkos and goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy have both been playing out of their minds all season long. I say back Tamp Bay, like right now! 

Toronto Maple Leafs (6/1)

The Leafs (23-10-2) rank second in scoring (3.7 gpg) and fourth in goals allowed (2.7 gpg) and look like one of the only teams capable of challenging Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference this season. 

Nashville Predators (9/1)

The Predators (22-12-2) have struggled a bit to see their stranglehold on the best record in the Western Conference. Still, I have no doubt that the Predators, who rank 15th in scoring (3.0 gpg), but lead the league in defense (2.5 gpg), are going to be one of the very top contenders to win the Western Conference this season. 

Calgary Flames (10/1)

The Flames (22-11-3) are off to a fast start and they’ve been fantastic at both ends of the ice in ranking sixth in scoring (3.5 gpg) and third in goals allowed (2.7 gpg).

The Flames are among the favorites at the latest Stanley Cup Odds.

Calgary looks like a team that will challenge for Western Conference superiority this season, but I say use some caution on the Flames. 

Winnipeg Jets (10/1)

The Jets (23-10-2) were my preseason to pick to win it all this season and it looks like they’re right on track to challenge. Winnipeg ranks fourth in scoring (3.6 gpg) and 11th in goals allowed (2.9 gpg). 

Washington Capitals (12/1)

I’ve been seriously impressed with the way Alex Ovechkin and company have been able to avoid the championship hangover so far this season. Washington (20-10-3) has excelled at home (10-5-1-1) and on the road (10-5-1) and they rank third in scoring (3.6 gpg), even though they are giving up 3.1 goals per game (19th). I like the Caps a lot as a 12/1 pick to repeat and believe they’ll challenge Tampa Bay and Toronto for conference superiority.
