Updated Stanley Cup Odds, Canucks Rocket Upward

Published

on

The Vancouver Canucks are beginning to attract a little bit of money on the betting market in the latest Stanley Cup odds.

After a rough season that is now long past, the new Canucks under coach Rick Tocchet are a reflection of their tough, strong-willed head coach. The team sits in second place but is firmly in the top three of the Pacific Division until the Edmonton Oilers erase a terrible start and win all of their remaining games.

We’re kidding about Edmonton, we think.

The Canucks latest odds to win the Stanley Cup are at +2200. The young stars and J.T. Miller are far from perfect, but they’re starting to make waves. GM Patrik Allvin and the swashbuckling president of hockey operations, Jim Rutherford, have a few moves left to make, too.

You can see the progression. The far left column is the updated odds. The Dallas Stars are gaining ground, and, hold back your tears, the Toronto Maple Leafs are losing a bit. The updated odds come from Betonlie.ag.

6/14/23 10/10/23 11/1/23
Colorado Avalanche 10/1 8/1 8/1 8/1
Boston Bruins 8/1 16/1 10/1 9/1
Carolina Hurricanes 11/1 7/1 9/1 10/1
Dallas Stars 16/1 14/1 11/1 10/1
New York Rangers 12/1 14/1 12/1 10/1
Vegas Golden Knights 9/1 10/1 10/1 10/1
Toronto Maple Leafs 10/1 10/1 10/1 11/1
Vancouver Canucks 60/1 66/1 45/1 22/1

Here’s a little twist. The big board at FanDuel is still showing the Canucks at +3500. So, if you’re value-hunting for a few Canucks futures bets, it would appear the FanDuel folks are a bit behind. Of course, you may have to drive a couple of hours south to place that bet.

The Canucks position in the standings is unique with the disparity in games played. They trail the Vegas Golden Knights by just one point. The Canucks (28) have one game in hand on Vegas (29), but they have each played several more games than third-place Los Angeles (25) and fourth-place Edmonton (25).

With the three more games played, the Canucks still lead Edmonton by 12 points. Tocchet’s crew also lead the Calgary Flames by 12 points and each team has played 28 games.

If you subscribe to the American Thanksgiving theory (teams in a playoff spot on the American’s late November holiday are a 75% shot at making the playoffs), then the Vancouver Canucks are looking pretty good. They’re highest scoring team in the league (107 goals), have a +34 goal differential, and have a 10-3-1 home record.

Miller is also among the NHL scoring leaders with  “only” 40 points (15-25-40) in 28 games. Quinn Hughes has done nothing to hurt his Norris Trophy candidacy in the last month. His nine goals and 36 points in 28 games shine brightly, too.

Barring a complete collapse or ridiculous rallies by the Calgary Flames or Edmonton Oilers, the Canucks will return to the NHL playoffs. Can they beat the tired legs of the Vegas Golden Knights or the good-but-flawed Colorado Avalanche?

35-to-1, you say?
