2014-15 NHL Divisional Odds

The NHL season doesn’t start until October 8th, but most sportsbooks had already posted Stanley Cup Futures for the upcoming season several months ago. However, earlier this week Bovada became one of the first major sportsbooks to offer odds on the four division winners.

Last season the Boston Bruins (Atlantic), Pittsburgh Penguins (Metropolitan), Colorado Avalanche (Central) and Anaheim Ducks (Pacific) won their respective divisions, and all four teams are expected to provide tough competition again in 2014-15.

The table below displays the 2014-15 NHL Divisional Odds at Bovada along with the implied probability for each team.
