Betting On Stanley Cup Online

When it comes to determining the ultimate champion in the major North American sports leagues, none can compare to the drama, intrigue and passion of the tournament to determine which NHL team will garner the honor of lifting Lord Stanley’s mug. Contested since 1893, it’s the oldest trophy of any North American team sport. A competition once dominated by dynasties, since the advent of the 2005 salary cap, the playing field has been leveled and no club has proven capable of winning back-to-back Stanley Cups.

Where to Bet On The Stanley Cup

Puck betting fans should always have several top quality sports wagering websites to cover their Stanley Cup handicapping needs. The highly rated sportsbooks, listed on our Top 5 Table, will always fit the bill. 

Stanley Cup Prop Bets

How does one take something that’s super fantastic, just on its own merits, and then make it even better? Well, when it comes to NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, you simply add the thrill of online proposition betting into the mix. While most recreational bettors are aware of the buzz created by prop wagering during the NFL Super Bowl, some may be unaware of the profitable prop action offered during NHL postseason play.

NHL prop betting options come in a variety of forms during all four rounds of the battle for the Stanley Cup. From wagering on who will win the Cup, to which player will win the Conn Smythe trophy as the MVP of the playoffs, the number of offerings runs into the hundreds, items including wagering on the exact outcome of a series, between two teams. Per game prop betting offers such possibilities as most goals, most points, and even total shots on goal, all available through head-to-head player props.

You can bet on how many points players will record during the length of a playoff series, or something as simple as which team will win the opening faceoff. 

Future Bets on NHL Stanley Cup

Bettors can take advantage of NHL futures wagering by positioning themselves to a point where they may be able to make some guaranteed winning wagers during the Stanley Cup playoffs. That process begins during NHL training camps or early on in the regular season. Remember, as the season wears thin – so to does the value of the handicapping lines. 

By placing future bets during the preseason, puck bettors can guarantee the best possible prices. This especially true of underdogs that may exceed expectations once the season opens. Depending on when you read this, the price on Ottawa to win the Cup in 2017 may still have strong value.

After performing proper research, that includes looking at key player additions and losses, plus how the teams looked as the previous season wound up, bettors should be able to whittle their choices down to a list of the top three or four teams.

If any of your preseason prop selections make it to the playoffs, chances are good that you’ll be able to make additional future bets that can put you in a “can’t lose” situation. If one of your teams makes it to the Cup Final, placing a small wager on their opponents means that you can kick back and enjoy the games – knowing that you’ll soon be cashing a winning wager. Good luck with your puck prognosticating!

Stanley Cup 2017 Futures

Betting on the Pittsburgh Penguins can be a rewarding venture. The club captured the 2016 championship and returned to the Stanley Cup Final in 2017 ready to take on the Nashville Predators. The Pens are seeking a second straight championship — something that hasn’t been done since 1997 and 1998 when the Detroit Red Wings captured a pair of back-to-back crowns.

Pittsburgh’s top two players — Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin — carried the Penguins to the final, leading the NHL in playoff scoring entering the championship round against the Predators.

Several sportsbooks offered intriguing series prop bets, including picking the Conn Smythe winner for playoff MVP. Both Crosby (+250) and Malkin (+350) were the frontrunners for the Pens.

If you’re basing your bet on the head-to-head history over the last 10 games, the Penguins should win hands down. The Penguins have posted an 8-2-0 record against the Predators over that stretch.

Picking the exact outcome of the Stanley Cup Final can also pay off. Putting your money on the Penguins to win in seven games will pay +300, while the same outcome for the Preds is +600.

Expect the final to go the distance, but the defending champion Penguins, who are -155 favorites to win the series, will be a tough team to beat. The Predators — +135 underdogs to win the franchise’s first-ever Cup — shocked the Blackhawks, Blues and Ducks. The club undoubtedly had the hardest path to the Stanley Cup Final. Unfortunately, their toughest challenge means they’ll have to take down the defending champions — not an easy task at all.
