Hockey fans love NHL futures betting. For all sports, futures wagering is one of the most popular options. It’s great for rookies who just want to try their hands at a big win, and it can be a huge win for more experienced bettors who want something more than day-to-day wagers. The biggest bet in the NHL revolves around the Stanley Cup odds, but there are a number of other NHL futures betting options.
2020 STANLEY CUP
NHL Futures Betting
There are 31 teams in the NHL, and they all have Stanley Cup odds. These odds will be constantly updated over the course of the season. The odds will increase and decrease, but typically speaking, futures betting will see a much higher odds and bigger wins, which is what makes it such a popular choice.
Of course, besides just the Cup, there are a number of odds offered for postseason and futures betting in the NHL. These include:
- NHL Awards and Trophies like the Hart and Vezina among others
- Conference wins
- Point standings and over/under bets
- Regular season player point totals
- Leading scorers (per team)
Anything that is based on the results of the entire season may be an option for futures betting. When the championship and cup games finally arrive, there may even be the option for live in-game and props bets that can garner smaller wins just in case the big victory doesn’t deliver as expected.
