It’s always important to shop around for the best betting odds, but that’s especially true of the Stanley Cup futures odds.
We often compare the 2016 Stanley Cup betting odds at 6 of the sportsbooks we use and see huge disparities on a lot of the Stanley Cup futures.
If the Panthers had won the Cup, you’d have won nearly TWICE as much money at Sports Interaction as you would have at Bet365, just because you shopped around for the best line!
And don’t forget, you don’t necessarily need to pick the Cup winner in order to make money betting the 2016 Stanley Cup odds. If you have a team at +1000 and they win the first 2 rounds, you can hedge that bet by betting against their opponents in the next rounds and guaranteeing yourself a profit.
Here’s a look at the updated 2016 Stanley Cup betting odds for the only two teams still alive, and where you could find them as of May 30. These odds are displayed in American odds format, which shows what you’d win on a $100 bet. For example, if you were to risk $100 on the Capitals +450, you could win $450. If you take the favourite (ie. Penguins -130), you’d have to risk $130 for every $100 you want to win.
2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Odds to Win
As an added bonus for the Stanley Cup final, we thought we’d post the Conn Smythe Trophy odds and the best sportsbook to bet on each player at.
(In case you don’t know, betting on who will win the Conn Smythe Trophy is the same as betting on the Stanley Cup playoff MVP odds.)
