Super Early Odds & Prediction for 2019 NHL Championship

Posted by Derrick Harper on June 11, 2018 in

The 2017-2018 National Hockey League season came to a close with the Washington Capitals coming up as the Stanley Cup Champions. What a season it was – as the Vegas Golden Knights reached the Stanley Cup Final in their first season as a franchise. Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the Stanley Cup Odds for the 2019 season. Here is a look at the Odds and some Super Early Predictions and Picks for the 2019 NHL Championship.

Super Early Odds & Prediction for 2019 NHL Championship

Tampa Bay Lightning 9/1

Tampa Bay starts the season as the favorite to raise the cup next season. Boy, Tampa Bay has got to be kicking themselves for letting a 3-2 series lead get away from them. Tampa Bay will still be very quick on the ice, and that’s why they are the betting favorite.

Boston Bruins 10/1

Big, strong and tough. That’s the Boston Bruins. They have to keep that kind of focus in the postseason if they are going to get the job done. The Eastern Conference has been successful the last several seasons. It’s the Bruins turn to take care of the job.

Toronto Maple Leafs 10/1

The young, athletic team in Toronto will be even better next season. That makes three Eastern Conference teams start out the odds. It will be interesting to see what kind of pieces the Maple Leafs add in the offseason, but at 10/1 – not terrible.

Vegas Golden Knights 10/1

The Golden Knights had an impressive run in 2018. The Golden Knights are going to have some regression in 2019.

The Vegas Golden Knights are one of the favorites to win the 2019 NHL Championship.

This does not seem like a great bet, as the momentum was all on their side this season. This is a bet to stay away from.

Winnipeg Jets 10/1

The Jets kind of came out of nowhere this season. Winnipeg was very good and had a shot at getting to the Stanley Cup Finals. Look for the strong play of the Jets to continue through the 2019 season as well.

Other Teams in the Mix

  • Nashville Predators 11/1
  • Pittsburgh Penguins 11/1
  • Washington Capitals 14/1
  • Edmonton Oilers 18/1
  • Anaheim Ducks 22/1
  • Chicago Blackhawks 22/1
  • Columbus Blue Jackets 25/1

There is a look at the Super Early Odds to win the NHL Championship. We are going to make a few picks here. A couple are going to be favorites, we think to have a great chance to make a run, and a few are underdogs that we like the early part of the off-season. The Boston Bruins are going to be tough and hungry next year. We like them at 10/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup.

Out of the Western Conference – the Nashville Predators are still loaded for 2018 – 2019. Give them a look at 11/1 odds. Our three underdog picks include the Chicago Blackhawks at 22/1 and St. Louis Blues at 40/1 out of the Western Conference – and the Philadelphia Flyers at 28/1 out of the Eastern Conference. Best of luck!
