The 2019 NHL season is on the horizon and if you are betting on NHL futures read my bold 2019-20 NHL futures predictions first.

Bold NHL Futures Betting Predictions

Don’t Bet On The Tampa Bay Lightning To Win the Eastern Conference…

The Tampa Bay Lightning dominated last season. They were so formidable that even on sunny days, the rest of the NHL had to watch out for thunderbolts. But, Tampa’s Lightning became a Naked and Afraid like fire starter spark in the playoffs. That can work on a team’s mind, which is why Tampa’s a bad bet to win the deep Eastern Conference.

…And Don’t Bet On Toronto Maple Leafs To Win the East…

Can anyone help but not dream of pancakes every time they see the Leafs’ logo? Just like the syrup made from their moniker, Toronto will slip away in the playoffs this season. Toronto lost too much during the offseason while, we’re repeating here, the East is deep. Leafs and Lightning bow out early in the postseason just like they did in 2018-2019.

…And Pass On The Boston Bruins

Boston, you say? Sure, they’re a contender, but let’s be real for a moment. The Bruins knocked out Toronto and then skated past Columbus and Carolina. Both those squads are decent, not great, which means if they face the team that will win the Eastern Conference this season in the playoffs, they’ll get smashed like so many tiny piles of Boston baked beans under a pint of Sam Adams from a beer drinker who doesn’t understand how to play Candy Crush.

Back The Caps If You Are Picking An Eastern Conference Winner

Nancy might be after Donny with the impeachment talk, but no fan will want to send the Caps scurrying for cover this season. Washington’s three most important players, Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin, and Braden Holtby are all over 30.

The elder Capitals statesmen can still play some ball, though, which means the 2017-2018 Lord Stanley subjects can get it done again. Plus, they play in the calmer Metropolitan than the three-deep Atlantic.

Bet On The Calgary Flames To Engulf The Rest Of The West

The Calgary Flames will surprise the entire West and come out on top. Yes, Calgary bowed out of the playoffs without a fight last year. But they got tougher with the addition of Milan Lucic. If the Flames front office can sign Matthew Tkachuk in a timely manner, they will have the core team that made up the best team in the Western Conference and tied the Sharks for the second-most goals scored.

Odds To Win The Stanley Cup

Odds & Picks To Win The 2019 Stanley Cup

The 2019 NHL regular season is hitting the home stretch. That makes it a perfect time to take a closer look at 5Dimes’ updated 2019 Stanley Cup betting odds. Let’s get started.

Odds & Picks To Win The 2019 Stanley Cup

Who are the 2019 Stanley Cup betting favorites heading into NHL regular season’s home stretch?

Stanley Cup Betting Favorites

  • Tampa Bay Lightning +350
  • San Jose Sharks +800
  • Boston Bruins +870
  • Winnipeg Jets +950
  • Toronto Maple Leafs +1000
  • Calgary Flames +1050

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the heavy favorite to win the 2019 Stanley Cup at +350, but their journey to the Finals could turn perilous after the first round. Tampa Bay will run away with the Presidents’ Trophy while leading scorer Nikita Kucherov is likely to capture the Hart Trophy. That will pit the Lightning against either Columbus or Montreal in the first round. Neither opponent is an upset threat. Their second-round matchup will be a hell of a series, against Toronto or Boston. The Maple Leafs are +1000 to win the Cup, and the Bruins are +870.

In the West, the San Jose Sharks are the top betting favorite to win the Stanley Cup at +800. The Sharks are a team of veterans (Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski, and Brent Burns) chasing their first Cups, as well as the first for the frustrated Shark fans. The second best team out of the West are the Winnipeg Jets who are listed at +950 to win the Stanley Cup. A Winnipeg Jets and San Jose West final could be more entertaining than any possible Cup Final. Both teams are offensive minded, currently ranked as the second- and sixth-highest-scoring groups, respectively. But both teams can play hard-checking, grind it out hockey. Home-ice advantage will be highly critical. The Jets have an NHL-best 31.0 percent power play at home while the Sharks a West-leading 23-5-5 win/loss record at the Shark Tank.

Joining Toronto and Winnipeg on my list of Stanley Cup favorites are the Calgary Flames at +1050. All three teams have a shot to end Canada’s 25-year Stanley Cup drought.

Stanley Cup Betting Contenders

Who are the top contenders to win the 2019 Stanley Cup?

  • Nashville Predators/Vegas Golden Knights +1200
  • Washington Capitals +1300
  • St. Louis Blues +1600
  • New York Islanders +1800
  • Pittsburgh Penguins +2000

After a phenomenal inaugural season that ended with the Las Vegas Golden Knights losing the Stanley Cup Finals to the Washington Capitals, the Golden Knights went all-in on both the offseason and deadline trade markets. Vegas is listed +1200 to win the 2010 Stanley Cup, tied with the Nashville Predators who have upgraded their roster around the edges thanks to a deep roster.

The defending champion Capitals are listed at +1300 to match the Penguins’ back-to-back Cups and take a step closer to becoming a future dynasty.

Stanley Cup Betting Longshots

Are there any 2019 Stanley Cup longshots who are worth a flyer?

  • Carolina Hurricanes +2300
  • Columbus Blue Jackets +3000
  • Montreal Canadiens +5000
  • Dallas Stars +5500
  • Minnesota Wild +8500

No Chance To Win The Stanley Cup

  • Arizona Coyotes +10000
  • Colorado Avalanche +15000
  • Philadelphia Flyers +17500
  • Edmonton Oilers/Chicago Blackhawks +25000
  • Buffalo Sabres/Florida Panthers +50000
  • Vancouver Canucks +75000
  • New York Rangers/Anaheim Ducks +250000
