Betting on regular-season NHL matchups is exciting. However, if you’re a bettor who likes to be challenged, placing a bet on the NHL futures can up the ante. 

The Stanley Cup Finals is one of the most significant sporting events in North America. So betting on the possible Lord Stanley champion early in the season can be quite a ride. 

If your chosen team raises the Cup in the finals, you’ll enjoy a big payout. But if you’re still in doubt, MaximBet.com is here to help you every step of the way. In this article, we also dedicate a separate FAQ section to any queries regarding the NHL.

At MaximBet.com, we are devoted to assisting bettors in analyzing the odds to increase their chances of winning. We are a licensed sportsbook, so you can be sure that you’re legally betting on the NHL games.

What Are NHL Futures? 

NHL futures are hockey bets where bettors spend money on a team to win an event later in the season. 

Once you place your futures bet in our sportsbook, it’s officially locked in with fixed odds upon placing your stakes. You can bet on NHL futures before the season begins or while the season is ongoing. 

The most popular futures bet in the NHL happens during the Stanley Cup. Bettors predict which hockey team will win their respective conference. 

The betting public also looks forward to the Hart Memorial Trophy, the annual award for the regular season MVP (Most Valuable Player).

Futures Betting: NHL Divisions and Conferences 

Initially, the NHL had two conferences: Eastern and Western. However, the NHL committee decided to realign the 31 teams in four new divisions (Central, East, West, and North) because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. The Northern division consists of the seven Canadian teams. 

Each hockey team has to play a 56-game schedule and meet potential opponents only in its division during the regular season. The top four teams in each division will move to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the best of seven. 

Below are the original 31 hockey teams in each division: 

North West Cental East 
Calgary Flames Anaheim Ducks Carolina Hurricanes Boston Bruins
Edmonton Oilers Arizona Coyotes Chicago Blackhawks Buffalo Sabres
Montreal Canadiens  Colorado Avalanche Columbus Blue Jackets New Jersey Devils
Ottawa Senators Los Angeles Kings Dallas Stars New York Islanders
Toronto Maple Leafs Minnesota Wild Detroit Red Wings New York Rangers
Vancouver Canucks San Jose Sharks Florida Panthers Philadelphia Flyers
Winnipeg Jets  St. Louis Blues Nashville Predators Pittsburgh Penguins
Vegas Golden Knights Tampa Bay Lightning Washington Capitals 

On April 30, 2021, Seattle paid the final installment of the $650 million expansion fee, officially making the Seattle Krakens the 32nd team in the league. The Krakens are expected to play in the 2021-2022 season.

NHL Futures Market: Awards Betting 

Player awards are typical in the NHL futures market. The Hart Memorial Trophy is granted to the most valuable player in the NHL regular season. 

On the other hand, the Conn Smythe Trophy is awarded to the NHL playoffs’ MVP. Other NHL recognitions include:

  • James Norris Memorial Trophy (Best Defenseman)
  • Vezina Trophy (Best Goaltender)
  • Calder Memorial Trophy (Rookie of the Year)
  • Ted Lindsay Award (Most Outstanding Player)
  • Selke Trophy (Best Defensive Forward)
  • Lady Byng Trophy (Most Gentlemanly Player)
  • Jack Adams Award (Coach of the Year) 

NHL Futures: How to Bet

Stanley Cup Betting

Many bettors think that the Stanley Cup is the most difficult trophy to win in professional sports. Although wagering on the Stanley Cup, particularly the NHL Stanley Cup futures, may seem like a hard row to hoe, the payoff can be huge.

Stanley Cup Futures

Which hockey team do you think will be the next Stanley Cup winner? You can bet on that today through the NHL futures. 

During the NHL season, oddsmakers in Las Vegas and other states in the U.S. set and move the betting lines based on the relative strength of the hockey teams.

A top-seed team in the league might be +400 odds to win the Cup. Meaning, you’d earn $4 for every $1 bet if that team goes on to win Lord Stanley. 

On the other hand, the last-place hockey team in the league may be +10,000. Sure, betting on it would pay out big time, but it’s one crazy long shot. 

Stanley Cup Odds 

Let’s say Colorado (+600) is the preseason favorite to win Lord Stanley, while Tampa Bay trails closely at (+750). A hundred-dollar bet on the Avalanche would give you $600 profit if they won. 

If you placed a $100 bet on the Bolts, and the team took home the championship trophy, you would receive a payout worth $750. 

The 2021 NHL playoffs began on August 1. The Lightning and the Bruins came out as the early favorites. Having both teams as contenders, it’s evident that oddsmakers think that an Eastern Conference team will win the Cup. 

However, it’s too early to decide which teams will face each other in the Stanley Cup Finals, given the unpredictability of the games. Anything can happen at this point, so make sure you analyze the NHL futures odds before you make your decision. 

Who knows? An NHL team from the Western Conference might emerge as the winner. 

NHL FAQs

  1. Will there be a bubble in the 2021 NHL season? 

    Last year, traveling between cities for matchups and playing in home arenas were prohibited due to the pandemic. There were also no fans in attendance during the tournament. 

    In the 2021 NHL season, every team in the U.S. has already hosted fans after applying for increased capacity under state protocols. On the other hand, hockey teams based in Canada haven’t hosted fans yet. 

  2. Aside from the Colorado Avalanche, Boston Bruins, and Tampa Bay Lightning, which teams have the best odds to win the 2021 Stanley Cup?

    The Vegas Golden Knights and the Toronto Maple Leafs also have the best odds of winning Lord Stanley in the 2021 season as of July. 

    However, keep in mind that the NHL futures odds fluctuate throughout the regular season. So, you have to constantly keep yourself updated. 

  3. What does -110 mean?

    -110 defines the amount required by a sportsbook to earn $100 on either side of most bets. For example, in the NHL, you must lay down $110 to win $100 when betting on the point spread.
