Western Conference

Central Division

[Nov. 8] The injury-riddled Avalanche finally fell, and sharply, going from +140 to +250, well behind new favorite Nashville (+160).

[Oct. 29] Despite injuries to Mikko Rantanen and Gabe Landeskog, the Avs are still heavy Central favorites at +140.

[Oct. 23] The Avalanche are inching closer to odds-on favorite status (+140) after going 7-1-1 out of the gate.

[Oct. 7] Colorado is living up to its billing as preseason favorite and has improved to +220 on average, followed by the Blues (+360).

[Oct. 1] The Avalanche are the consensus favorites still (+290). But Dallas (+390) is ahead at certain sportsbooks, including BookMaker.eu (see table, below).

[Aug. 27] No real changes in the Central. It’s still a tightly-packed top five followed by the Blackhawks (+790) and then a huge drop-off to the Wild (+4200).

[Aug. 9] There’s a ton of love for the Avalanche out there. Colorado was already favored, and then got even shorter in the hyper-competitive Central, going from +350 to +300.

[July 15] A deep playoff run coupled with the addition of Nazem Kadri has led to Colorado having the best odds to win the Central to start out.
