NHL News and Predictions

2016 Stanley Cup Odds Updated


Washington Capitals


The Caps are finally slowing down, as manifested by a 4-3-1 record over their last eight games. That’s not bad. But if you’re the Capitals, who’ve been so accustomed to getting on a prolonged win streak, those four losses definitely says something about the team’s drop in form.

Nevertheless, the Caps are still heads and shoulders above everyone else in the NHL, let alone in the Metropolitan division. The Presidents’ Trophy is there for the taking by the Caps, who are sitting on +400 odds to take home the Stanley Cup Trophy.

Los Angeles Kings

NHL Stanley Cup Odds Updated - March 22, 2016

Hockey fans know that over the past few seasons, the Kings can turn into an unstoppable animal once the playoffs set in.

This year’s Kings look no different. They’ve been money in the bank this month, going 7-2 in their first nine March games. To make a point that they’re going to be a force to reckon with moving forward, the Kings beat Chicago and Dallas on the road then went back home to smash the Rangers and Boston over their last four games. The Kings are priced at +1,000 to win their third Stanley Cup title since 2012 this year.

Pittsburgh Penguins

No, the Penguins are not sleepers. Not with the talent they have on their roster and the way they’re playing lately. We’re calling them sleepers because they’re priced like one. At +1,800 odds to win their second Stanley Cup title in the Sidney Crosby era, the Penguins look like a steal for that price.

The Pens are not going to catch the Caps atop the Metropolitan Division, but the momentum they have right now tells how fearsome this Pittsburgh team is going to be in the postseason. They’re currently on a six-game win streak, which includes a convincing 6-2 beatdown of Washington on March 20.

Long Shot

New Jersey Devils

The only consistent thing for the Devils lately is their inconsistency. They’ve alternated wins and losses over their last five games. The Devils defeated Los Angeles on March 12 in overtime, 2-1, and then made a trip to Honda Center, where they were blown into smithereens by Anaheim, 7-1. The got back up with a 7-4 win in Minnesota to restore their sanity before bowing out to Columbus on the road, 6-3. Their most recent outing had the Devils avenging their loss to the Blue Jackets with a 2-1 win at home.

The Devils are going to need a miracle to make it to the postseason, as they’re six points behind of Detroit for the second and last wild card ticket in the Eastern Conference. Even Lucifer is unlikely to put his money on the Devils, but anything can still happen in the NHL. The Devils are pegged at +12,500 to win the Stanley Cup this season.
