2020 Art Ross Trophy Odds Tracker
Updated September 1, 2020
- Mar. 2: The race is all but over thanks to McDavid’s injury. Draisaitl leads the scoring race by 11 points with only 15-18 games to go for each team.
- Feb. 3: McDavid is still the odds-on favorite, but his odds have gotten longer, now sitting at -140 because he trails Draisaitl by two points for the scoring title.
- Jan. 3: McDavid is now a prohibitively short -275 favorite; his teammate Leon Draisaitl (+275) remains his closest competitor.
- Dec. 2: McDavid has taken over the scoring lead, but is still at plus-money on average (+130), somewhat surprisingly.
- Nov. 1: Edmonton’s dynamic duo are still at the top, but the gap between the two is almost non-existent (+250 vs +275).
- Oct. 23: The top-two favorites are now both Edmonton Oilers: McDavid is almost even money (+140), while Draisaitl is second at a distant +700.
- Oct. 11: Kucherov has gotten a little longer (+280 to +300) while McDavid has gotten a little shorter (+280 to +250).
- Sep. 15: Despite coming back from a broken leg, Connor McDavid has opened as the +280 favorite.

Notable Art Ross Trophy Trophy Trends
- Variety is the name of the game these days. Only one player has won multiple Art Ross trophies in the last decade (McDavid, 2016-17 & 2017-18).
- That hasn’t always been the case. For just over 30 years (from 1980-2001), only three players won the Art Ross (Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr).
- Only one player over age 30 has led the NHL in points since 1997. In 2012-13, Martin St. Louis won at age 37. But that only adds more credence to the notion that the Art Ross is a sub-30 award as the 2012-13 season was strike-shortened. St. Louis’ aging body only had to play 48 games.
