Penguins, Oilers Emerge as 2018 Cup Favourites

The Vegas odds makers have not given a hometown favourite to their new Golden Knights. As of now, If you plan on betting for any of these teams there’s a fairly high payout on anyone but Pittsburgh. Some surprise rankings, Tampa Bay, Nashville and Dallas.

In terms of Fantasy Hockey usage, goalies of these teams likely will go fairly high. The majority of the top 10 teams have top 10 goalies. If you can manage to steal 2 out of these goalies in your fantasy hockey draft, you are set.

While Vegas believes as a McDavid, Crosby meeting in the finals is the most statistically probable, Tampa Bay being third with 12 to 1 odds is shocking. While they have a proven track record of playoff success, Tampa fell short of making the playoffs last season. The next closest team on this list to miss the playoffs is Dallas at 14 to 1. The odds makers believe that Tampa can re-establish their dominance in the East with a healthy Stamkos, and a young goaltender in Andrei Vasilievsky.

Dallas acquired Methot, Bishop, Radulov and Hanzal in the off-season making arguably the best moves this summer. After missing the playoffs by a wide margin, the Stars are 11th in Stanley Cup odds. Ahead of Anaheim, San Jose, Boston and Ottawa (all playoff teams last season).
