The start of the 2022-23 season is rapidly approaching as the puck drops in 43 days when the Nashville Predators and San Jose Sharks travel to Prague, Czechia, on October 7th, as part of the NHL Global Series. The NY Islanders will get down to business a few days later when the Florida Panthers visit the UBS Arena on October 13th.
Betting odds for both individual and team awards have now been made available. Islanders fans on Long Island, multiple states, and across Canada can now legally place bets on the NHL.
Heading into last season, the Islanders were among the betting favorites for the Stanley Cup after making the conference final/semi-final in each of the previous two seasons. According to HockeyReference.com, the Islanders' preseason odds heading into the 2021-22 season were +2000, good enough for eighth-best in the league. This means that a $100 bet would net you $2,000 if they were crowned champions.
After a disappointing season, the odds have cooled off significantly heading into the 2022-23 season, although, there could be some betting value with the Islanders along with individual players.
Note: All bets are based on a $100 wager.
Example: If the given line is +200, a $100 bet would net $200. If the given line is -130, it would take a $130 bet to net $100.
