2024 Conn Smythe Trophy Odds: Oettinger Slides Ahead of Igor

With only four teams remaining, the field to win the Conn Smythe trophy has become considerably smaller. 

Connor McDavid started the playoffs as the NHL odds favorite in this market, but a pair of netminders are atop, battling it out in the Conn Smythe odds. Will we see a goalie win the playoff MVP honors for just the second time in 12 seasons?

Understanding Conn Smythe Trophy odds

Sportsbooks will post Conn Smythe Trophy odds as early as the beginning of the playoffs. These NHL futures are constantly adjusted throughout the postseason depending on how well players perform as well as their team success. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NHL awards odds based on handle and liability to certain players.

Conn Smythe Trophy odds will usually look like this:

  • Nathan MacKinnon +290

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $290 if MacKinnon takes home the Conn Smythe Trophy. If it's close to the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs and a player has stood out as the obvious MVP of the series they might have a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds like this: 

  • Connor McDavid -175

This means that if you bet on McDavid to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, you would have needed to bet $175 to profit $100.

All of the odds listed above are in American format, but if you prefer decimal or fractional odds, simply plug them into our odds converter tool.
