The 65th version of the NHL All-star game, fourth with the 3-on-3 format, is on deck with NHL all-star game betting odds coming up. Which teams are most likely to win the whole show? Here is how they stack up (odds via Bet365):

  • Atlantic – 3.50
  • Metropolitan – 3.50
  • Central – 5.50
  • Pacific – 3.00

The faster and zanier All-star game features both new and old faces, and despite the last-minute changes to some rosters, expect a highly skilled competition that is a toss-up. 

Fast Facts: NHL All-Star game odds  

  • Only the Pacific (2) and Metropolitan (2) divisions have won the previous NHL All-Star games
  • The Pacific division has made it to the final round of three of the last four NHL All-Star games
  • Sidney Crosby won the 2019 NHL All-Star game MVP
  • Alex Ovechkin and Connor McDavid have not won an NHL All-Star game MVP
  • A total of 40 goals were scored in the 2019 NHL All-Star game, the most since the new format

Let’s look at the NHL all-star game odds.

NHL All-Star game betting odds

Since winning is almost just cosmetic in these types of games, NHL All-Star games are a crapshoot making NHL All-Star game betting odds a doozy. But we can still break down the roster of each team and prognosticate on their odds of winning: 

Atlantic Division (3.50)

Led by the NHL’s leading goalscorer, David Pastrnak, the Atlantic may finally get over the hump and capture their first NHL All-star game trophy. The Atlantic is 0-2 in the final, having only scored two goals in total. But with Auston Matthews and Jack Eichel, it’s only a matter of time before they blow up.

Metropolitan Division (3.50)

The Metropolitan won last year’s festivities but will be hard-pressed to repeat with captain Alex Ovechkin’s shocking withdrawal. They also lost Jake Guentzel and Kyle Palmieri and last year’s MVP, Sidney Crosby, isn’t participating. Their lack of star power will make them long shots to win this year.

Central Division (5.50)

This could finally be the Central’s year as they ride the coattails of the defending champs, the Blues, who will have four players and Craig Berube coaching. On top of that, they have elite goalscorers from every position, including Patrick Kane and Nathan MacKinnon. At these odds, they are criminally underrated. Bet on them for this value.

Pacific Division (3.00)

The Pacific has had the most success in the All-star game, but they’re going to be shorthanded this year thanks to a rash of injuries and a last-minute coaching change. Still, a team with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl is a contender, especially if either of their goalies catches fire.

NHL All-Star game MVP odds

Betting on the NHL All-Star game MVP odds is like playing the lottery. When enforcer John Scott won the vote during the inaugural 3-on-3 rebrand, it’s anyone’s game. Still, let’s look at each team’s most likely candidates:

Atlantic Division

  • David Pastrnak (F) (captain)
  • Auston Matthews (F)
  • Andrei Vasilevsky (G)

Metropolitan Division

  • Artemi Panarin (F)
  • John Carlson (D)
  • Dougie Hamilton (D)

Central Division

  • Nathan MacKinnon (F) (captain)
  • Patrick Kane (F)
  • Jordan Binnington (G)*

* – hometown favourite

Pacific Division

  • Connor McDavid (F) (captain)
  • Elias Petersson (F)
  • Jakob Markstrom (G)
