NHL Futures Update Ahead Of Season StartBy Jonathan K.
We are a few hours away from the kick of the NHL season so it is a good time to check in with the NHL Futures leading into the season.
It is not a surprise to see the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, at the top of the futures has most start-of-the season future odds normally have incumbent champions placed firmly at the top.
The Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightening follow the Penguins in the odds listing with the ever popular bet, the Chicago Blackhawks with the fourth best odds.
Stanley Cup finals runner-ups, the Nashville Predators, sit with a dismal 8th best odds at +1400 moneyline. It is important to note, however, that the books had them tagged as underdogs all last season, the entire playoffs and in the finals.
