NHL Western Conference Winners Betting Tips:

The Chicago Blackhawks have a great shot of winning the Western conference. They have depth at every position and have incredibly talented forwards on their first two lines. If the Hawks stay healthy they could do it. And at +500 odds act now as this is sure to change since they are now 5-0

The Edmonton Oilers are a team that, thanks to playing in the AHL during the lockout, are already up to midseason speed and its showing. Lead by Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nail Yakupov and the incredibly talented Justin Schultz this team also stand a great chance. Just look at the beginning of the season odds and the current odds, They have already dropped from +1400 to +1000

The Anaheim Ducks are a confusing team to judge. Are they the team that showed up last year? Or are they the team that had great success in years before? With Bobby Ryan, Ryan Getzlaf, Cory Perry and Teemu Selanne they are never out of any game. I think last year was a fluke and this could be the year they climb back to the top of the standings. And at +1900 if they do well you will be rewarded well for it

Another team who could sneak through the year and before you know it could be in first place is the Dallas Stars. With Jaime Benn now signed he joins: Jaromir Jagr, Ray Whitney, Derek Roy and Loui Eriksson and this team suddenly looks downright scary.

So before the odds change and it becomes more clear who the real contenders are, Bet on who will Win the Western Conference at Bodog now while the Odds are still in your favor. Because if the Hawks stretch this win streak on any longer the odds will drop fast down to the +100 range for them.
