Eastern Conference

Atlantic Division

[Aug. 27] The Buffalo Sabres are the biggest movers in the Atlantic, going from +7500 in mid-July to +5600 as September approaches.

[Aug. 9] Tampa continues to lead the Atlantic pack, but the Panthers are now considered a somewhat legitimate threat at +760.

[July 15] Tampa Bay is a sizable favorite to repeat (+130) despite the Leafs beefing up their roster in the offseason with the likes of Tyson Barrie.

Metro Division

[Oct. 7] Washington (+270) and Carolina (+350) continue to separate from the Metro pack after strong performances in the first week of the season.

[Oct. 1] The Capitals are the clear favorites now, going from +350 to +310. The Hurricanes are next at +430.

[Aug. 27] The Penguins (+440) and Hurricanes (+450) are neck and neck for second-best odds in the Metro, narrowly behding Washington (+350).

[Aug. 9] The Capitals have taken sole possession of first in the Metro odds, going from +400 to +350. Pittsburgh also improved (+550 to +440).

[July 15] Re-signing Sebastian Aho has led to oddsmakers taking a favorable view of the Hurricanes, who are tied with the Capitals atop the first Metro odds at +400.

Western Conference

Central Division

[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.

Pacific Division

[Oct. 7] Vegas (-120) has moved to shorter than even-money after just two games, both lopsided wins over San Jose.

[Oct. 1] Inauspiciously for the Flames, their odds fell (+400 to +410) while both Vegas (+110 to +100) and San Jose (+520 to +490) improved.

[Aug. 27] The Coyotes (+880) jumped well ahead of the Canucks(+1100) and Oilers (+1200).

[Aug. 9] Vegas is getting all the early action and is now even money to win the Pacific. The Sharks’ odds have gotten considerably longer, falling from +380 to +540.

[July 15] Despite finishing third in the division last year and losing in the first round of the playoffs, Vegas finds itself well ahead of defending Pacific champion Calgary (+160 vs +280).
