The 2018-2019 season isn’t even 24 hours finished yet but there are already Stanley Cup odds for 2019-2020 season. The New York Islanders have the eighth best odds.
As exciting as the Stanley Cup playoffs were, it’s hard not to be sad that it’s over. With St Louis winning on the road in Game 7 the 2018-2019 season officially came to a close. Unfortunately, we have to wait until October for meaningful hockey.
Just because we have to wait that long for hockey doesn’t mean that Vegas isn’t already looking forward to next year. Early odds for the 2020 Stanley Cup were released last night and you might want to put some bets in.
Tampa Bay leads the way with 6/1 odds to be crowned champions. Despite their first-round exit, this comes as no surprise. They were the best team in the league by a longshot so until proven otherwise they deserve the top spot.
Vegas, Boston, Toronto, Colorado, St Louis, San Jose, Winnipeg, Washington, Pittsburgh, Calgary, Nashville, Florida, and Philadelphia all have better odds than the New York Islanders. Coming in with the eighth best odds at 30/1 is the Isles.
Putting $10 to win $300 seems like a good move because that number is only going to get lower as the offseason and season progresses. Now, I’m not saying the Islanders are definitely going to win the Cup but with those odds, it’s hard not to throw a few bucks down.
There are a few teams on this list that the Islanders have a much better chance than but that’s the NHL. They always sleep on the Islanders, but you shouldn’t sleep on this opportunity.
