The 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs are nearly concluding, but it’s not too late to get in on the NHL betting action. With a pay per head partnership with WagerHome.com, you’ll be sure to win big, even if you’re not the one getting your name on the Stanley Cup.
Here, we’ve listed the Stanley Cup odds for the final four teams, along with their recent betting trends to maximize your payouts.
Vegas Golden Knights +105
As the regular-season runner-up, the Vegas Golden Knights only became the betting favorite after taking down the top-seeded Colorado Avalanche. However, despite having the best odds, many fans and bettors alike believe Vegas will lose in the Stanley Cup round.
The +105 price may be a little too steep for bettors, especially if there are concerns about a matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning. But entering the final round, they’re still a solid choice as a Cup-winning team. If the Golden Knights slow down the tempo as they did against Colorado, they will be a tough team to score against. Vegas has the star power to scoring on the counterattack as well.
Tampa Bay Lightning +270
The Lightning were +150 before a Game One loss at home to the New York Islanders. Still, Tampa Bay is a dangerous team. Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy is arguably the best goaltender on the planet, and with Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos, and Brayden Point all constant threats to score, the Lightning can stay hot in a hurry.
Expect some of the betting action to switch to Tampa Bay despite the Game One loss. As the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Lightning are still the team to beat. Getting them at +270 instead of +150 is enough of a difference that the betting action will slide towards the Bolts even after a loss.
New York Islanders +360
While Tampa Bay’s odds slipped a bit with the Game One loss, the Islanders saw a considerable jump in favoritism. Most books had New York somewhere around +600 to win the Cup, but they’re up to +360 after an impressive 2-1 win on the road. The Islanders held Tampa Bay off the scoreboard until a late power play allowed the Lightning to skate 6-on-4 and get a goal back.
Still, it wasn’t enough to break through Semyon Varlamov and the stingy Islanders defense. The Islanders are analytics darlings, and if they continue to play the way they have so far, New York could be hoisting the Cup for the first time since 1983.
Montreal Canadiens +1100
Battling back from the brink of elimination, the Montreal Canadiens are the team that just won’t go away. Similar to the Islanders, Montreal isn’t a high-volume scoring team and doesn’t have true game-breaking talent among their forwards, but the advanced stats show Montreal is doing everything right.
Carey Price is as good as it gets in net, leading all playoff goaltenders in save percentage (.935), and he is third in GAA (1.97). Montreal doesn’t allow many high-danger chances but takes advantage of the opportunities they’re given. The Canadiens also have an impressive 90.3% penalty kill unit and have scored four shorthanded goals in the playoffs (all other teams have combined for six shorthanded markers).
