Betting Odds: Carolina Hurricanes The Favorites For Stanley Cup



The Carolina Hurricanes, fresh off a 6-1 rout of the New Jersey Devils in Game 4 of their second-round series, are the betting favorite to emerge as Stanley Cup Champions.

Tied for the league high in playoff points, the Hurricanes are currently +275 to win the second Stanley Cup in franchise history — thanks in part to heavyweights in the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche being bounced in the first round. They’re also -105 to outright win the Eastern Conference.

The duo of Sebastian Aho and Jordan Martinook, who have combined for 19 points, have the Hurricanes up 3-1 in the series. Game 5 is scheduled for Thursday night, with the Devils — who are +1800 to win it all — looking to stay alive.

Following the Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference is the Florida Panthers, who hold the second-best odds to win out at +355. Led by winger Matthew Tkachuk, whose 15 playoff points rank second in the league, the Panthers currently hold a 3-0 series lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs — the team with the longest odds (+1200 to win the conference, +2500 to win the Stanley Cup). Game 4 of the series is scheduled for Wednesday night.

In the Western Conference, two teams are tied for the best odds to take home the Stanley Cup. The Edmonton Oilers, led by regular season points leader Connor McDavid and playoff points leader Leon Draisaitl, and the Vegas Golden Knights, who had the fourth-most wins in the regular season, are +195 to take the conference crown. However, the Oilers have slightly better odds to win the Stanley Cup  at +425 compared to the Golden Knights’ +450.

Currently, the Golden Knights have a 2-1 series lead over the Oilers. Game 4 is scheduled for Wednesday night.

The Dallas Stars, who are tied at 2-2 with the Seattle Kraken, are +250 to win the Western Conference and +550 to win the Stanley Cup. The Kraken are distantly behind at +600 to win the West and +1600 to win the Stanley Cup.
