So as you can see that as the season has moved along the odds are moving also. And the more teams become contenders and other teams turn out to be totally out of it the chances of getting the best odds available are quickly disappearing. So do you play it safe and g for the favorites? Or are you the go big or go home kind of bettor and take a team who is on the outside looking in but still has a decent shot at winning the cup?

I’m going to go over some teams who I think offer you the best odds+chance of winnings or who have a long shot chance but the odds are just to valuable to ignore.

NHL Stanley Cup Winners Betting Tips:

First the favorites: Teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Los Angeles and the New York Rangers are all teams who sport books are expecting to do well and are paying out accordingly. So do you feel that just because the Odds suggest they have the best shot of winning the cup that they will? Remember last year when the Kings limped into the playoffs only to destroy all their competition on the way to winning the Stanley Cup.

Now for a few teams on the outside looking in: The Edmonton Oilers, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Ottawas Senators and The Buffalo Sabres are teams that have a shot of winning the cup but aren’t favorites and because so pay out extremely well.

Again anything can happen and you should bet on who you feel comfortable with. You think that this being a short season that a favorite will win the cup? Or because its a short season will teams who usually don’t stand a chance instantly become favorites

There are many place that you can take advantage of this awesome betting option but my personal favorite is as always Bodog where their betting odds are always the best value for bettors.

Again the longer you wait the lower the betting odds will be so act fast and bet on who will Win The Stanley Cup
