Stanley Cup Underdog Betting Before Playoffs Begin

  • The Wild (+2200 odds) and the Stars (+1500 odds) are two underdogs to watch for Stanley Cup betting.

BOSTON – The 2022-23 Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to begin on Monday and the Bruins are the heavy favorite with +300 odds. The dominance of the Eastern Conference this year has resulted in the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Avalanche being the only two teams from the West in the top seven.

The Bruins’ historic season creates the chance to get long odds at online sportsbooks for a few legitimate contenders.

Betting on the Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars have been one of the best teams in the West during the 2022 season and are still in a position to win the Central and claim the second overall seed. The Stars have won eight of their last nine games to end the season, with their only loss in that stretch coming by the Colorado Avalanche. Dallas is in the middle of the pack for Stanley Cup odds, with +1500 entering the postseason.

Betting on the Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild clinched their playoff spot on April third against the Vegas Golden Nights during a shootout loss and have gone 2-3 ever since. The Wild are one of the more dangerous underdog teams in the West, as their best player Kirill Kaprizov is now fully healthy, after missing a month due to injury. Kaprizov still managed to record a 40-goal season and gives the Wild’s +2200 Stanley Cup odds value.

Could the Panthers Knock Out the Bruins?

NHL online sportsbooks currently have +275 odds for the Panthers to beat the Bruins in the first round.

With 65 wins and the 2022 President’s Trophy, the Bruins could find themselves gassed to start the playoffs. The 2018-19 TB Lightning last team to reach 60 wins with no other team doing so since 1995, and ended up being swept in the first round by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Chasing history could have been a mistake for Bruins, as they decided not to rest David Pastrňák and other starters in the last few games, even though they clinched the number one seed in the East on March 30.

The Panthers have gone on a heater to end the season, winning six of their last eight games, and are starting to resemble the team that won the Presidents Trophy last season. The Panthers currently have +3300 Stanley Cup odds but could be a team to watch as the 2022-23 playoffs tip-off.
