NHL Conference Champions: Futures Betting Odds at William Hill
Penguins and Bruins: Top Eastern Conference chalk
Much like the NBA, where the competition between the East and West is like night and day, the NHL Eastern Conference is lacking the playoff races found in the West. Currently sitting in first overall in the conference, with 83 points, the Pittsburgh Penguins are top chalk to represent the East in the Stanley Cup Finals with a +225 ML price. Boston, leaders in the Atlantic Division with 78 points, are a close second with +300 ML odds while the Tampa Bay Lightening, who expect star Steven Stamkos back in early March, round out the top three with a +800 futures line. Losing Pascal Dupis and Kris Letang hurts but – we’ll soar with the Penguins.
Western Conference: Wide open Championship chase in the Wild West
If you like drama – you will get a ton of it during the playoff stretch drive and postseason in the NHL Western Conference. Separated by just seven points in the overall standings, Anaheim, St. Louis, Chicago and San Jose, are all tightly bunched West favorites on the William Hill betting board. Anaheim, who currently lead the West with 87 points, has struggled a bit recently and are feeling the heat from the Blues who are three points behind them and have three games in hand. Solid, offensively and defensively across their lineup, St. Louis is the runaway NHL leader with a +61 GF/GA mark (Boston +51) and we like the Blues to win the Wild West.
