Here are some trends you may want to consider before placing a bet on the Stanley Cup.

  • Repeat winners are more common than you think. Since 2010, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning successfully defended their Cup once.

  • Top teams from the beginning of the year typically go on to win the Cup. Since 2010, just five teams with odds above +1,000 have gone on to hoist Lord Stanley.

  • In the last 10 seasons the Western Conference has won six championships to the East's four.

  • The President’s Trophy winner has gone on to win the Stanley Cup just eight times in the 35 years that both trophies have been awarded.

  • A team has won 2+ consecutive Stanley Cups 15 times, most recently the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2020 and 2021.

  • The runners-up have gone on to win the Stanley Cup in the following season only once since 1990 (Pittsburgh Penguins 2009).

Stanley Cups won by division

In the 2013-14 season, the NHL opted to move to a four-division league. This is the number of Stanley Cup winners per division since the switch.

Division Number of Stanley Cups
Atlantic 2
Metropolitan 3
Central 3
Pacific 2

Past Stanley Cup winners

The Colorado Avalanche claimed Lord Stanley's grail in 2022. They were the betting favorites for much of the year and finally lived up to the hype.

Here are the last 13 winners of the Stanley Cup, their odds of winning just before the playoffs began (courtesy of Sports Odds History), and the team that lost in the Stanley Cup Finals.

2010-11 Bruins Boston Bruins +800 Canucks Vancouver Canucks
2009-10 Blackhawks Chicago Blackhawks +450 Flyers Philadelphia Flyers

Are the Lightning the NHL's latest dynasty? Tampa Bay has been to the Stanley Cup Finals in three of the last four seasons and opened the 2022-23 season with +900 odds to win it all.

NHL teams with the most Stanley Cups

The Habs have a comfortable lead in the clubhouse, but haven't hoisted Lord Stanley's Cup since 1993.

How to read Stanley Cup odds

Sportsbooks will post NHL futures odds before the season starts — including odds to win the Stanley Cup. These odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason as players get hurt, suspended or are traded. Once the regular season begins, title odds will change daily as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt, suspended or traded. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NHL futures odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.

Stanley Cup odds will usually look like this:

  • Colorado Avalanche +550

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $550 if the Avs win the Stanley Cup. If it's close to the end of the regular season or even during the playoffs and the NHL has a very dominant team, you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds. 

  • Tampa Bay Lightning  -120

This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on a Lightning Stanley Cup win.

Best NHL betting sites

Scouting NHL betting websites should be a breeze, but new bettors often feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. Here are the must-have NHL betting site features you should target before placing your wagers.

Best odds: Not all sportsbooks are created equally, especially when it comes to odds. Finding the best price for your hockey bets is key to a successful betting strategy.

Live betting: Watching betting lines move in real-time and comparing statistics allows you to jump into the action at just the right moment.

Fast payouts: Accessing your hard-earned funds shouldn't feel more intense than Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. It's important to choose a sportsbook that offers fast and reliable money withdrawals post game.

Safe money transactions: The days of placing bets with bookies in shadowy back rooms are long over. Major online sportsbooks boast state-of-the-art security measures like SSL data encryption, and each holds a legal operating license from registered authorities.

Best NHL betting promos

Betting boosts are special promotions offered by legal sports betting sites that increase the odds for a specific game, event, or prop, designed to give you better value on your bets or encourage you to sign up for a new sportsbook with unique rewards and offerings.

They can be a great way for bettors to get better value for their wagers, as the odds are temporarily increased, thereby increasing a potential payout. The promotions are usually limited to a specific period and are subject to terms and conditions, so it's always important to read the fine print for more details.

Types of odds boosts

There are a number of different types of betting boosts available, with some targeting specific games, some aimed at specific leagues, and some just enticing users to try a new sportsbook. Here are the most common types of betting boosts:

  • Odds boost: When a sportsbook enhances the value of a specifically chosen player prop or a curated parlay/SGP, offering better odds than if you normally bet or created the wager yourself.

  • Profit boosts: When you are given a token that increases the value of any bet you want (such as a 25% boost on one Super Bowl bet). Sometimes these tokens are for all bets, while sometimes they have specific criteria (such parlays/SGPs only or bets above a certain price).

  • Sign-up offers: Operators offer benefits such as free bonus bets after your first wager, bonus bets offered as insurance if your first bet loses, an initial account deposit match, or even giving you discounts on other services for signing up with a sportsbook.

If you're in a state that allows mobile, online betting, make sure you know which sites are the best hockey betting sites. The best betting sites offer sharp odds, quick payouts and are safe and secure when it comes to depositing and withdrawing your money.
