Easy money or a big gamble? Here are the latest odds for the Stanley Cup and NHL awards, courtesy of Bodog. If you like the favorites, we're looking at Tampa Bay vs. Vegas in the Cup final, with the Lightning looking to pick up a few individual trophies, too.


Vegas started the year as 200-to-1 long shots, and now they're co-favorites with Tampa Bay. Last year's finalists, the Nashville Predators and two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, are among a group of teams in the second tier at 14-to-1.

Everybody's betting on Lightning sniper Nikita Kucherov, and it's hard to blame them for that. Nathan MacKinnon was coming on strong until he went down with an injury after the all-star break. Don't count out Connor McDavid just yet. You might want to put a nickel down on Sidney Crosby at 16-to-1, too.

Nikita Kucherov, TB 13/10

Nathan MacKinnon, COL 4/1

Connor McDavid, EDM  13/2

John Tavares, NYI 7/1

Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB 19/2

Johnny Gaudreau, CGY 11/1

Blake Wheeler, WPG 12/1

Alex Ovechkin, WSH 14/1

Sidney Crosby, PIT  16/1

John Klingberg, DAL 30/1


It's looking more and more like Brock Boeser and Mathew Barzal, and then everybody else. Clayton Keller could climb back into it if he finds the scoring touch he displayed in the opening month of the season.

Brock Boeser, VAN 11/10

Mathew Barzal, NYI 3/2

Nico Hischier, NJ  9/1

Alex DeBrincat, CHI 14/1

Clayton Keller, ARI 16/1

Charlie McAvoy, BOS 20/1

Mikhail Sergachev, TB 22/1


It's Andrei Vasilevskiy's to lose, but Sergei Bobrovsky, Marc-Andre Fleury and Connor Hellebuyck will force the young Lightning goalie to finish strong. Jake Allen seems out of place on this list. If you like long shots, Tuukka Rask has been lights-out for past two-plus months.

Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB 2/5

Sergei Bobrovsky, CLB 9/1

Marc-Andre Fleury, VEG 11/1

Connor Hellebuyck, WPG 11/1

Braden Holtby, WSH 12/1

Jonathan Quick, LA 12/1

Pekka Rinne, NSH 12/1

Jake Allen, STL 15/1

Mike Smith, CGY 15/1

Tuukka Rask, BOS 25/1

Frederik Andersen, TOR 30/1

NORRIS TROPHY ODDS (Best defenseman)

John Klingberg has a sizable lead in the scoring race among defensemen, but it's hard to deny Drew Doughty as the Norris favorite. PK Subban at 9-to-1 feels like a good value bet.

Drew Doughty, LA 5/2

John Klingberg, DAL 3/1

Victor Hedman, TB  4/1

Alex Pietrangelo, STL 13/2

PK Subban, NSH  9/1

John Carlson, WSH 15/1

Erik Karlsson, OTT 16/1

Brent Burns, SJ 20/1

Shayne Gostisbehere, PHI 28/1

Zach Werenski, CLB 28/1

ART ROSS TROPHY ODDS (Scoring leader)

Kucherov has been sitting atop the NHL points race for most of the season, and the odds reflect it. It's pretty great seeing Phil Kessel as the second-in-command. Hey, remember when we said to not count out McDavid? Well, we're saying it again.

Nikita Kucherov, TB  3/2

Phil Kessel, PIT 7/1

Steven Stamkos, TB 8/1

Connor McDavid, EDM 9/1

John Tavares, NYI 9/1

Johnny Gaudreau, CGY 9/1

Sidney Crosby, PIT  9/1

Claude Giroux, PHI 19/2

Jakub Voracek, PHI 19/2

Blake Wheeler, WPG 12/1


Alex Ovechkin is shooting for his seventh Rocket Richard Trophy. No one else has more than two. Standing in his way? Kucherov, of course. 

Alex Ovechkin, WSH 3/2

Nikita Kucherov, TB 4/1

William Karlsson, VEG 6/1

Anders Lee, NYI 7/1

John Tavares, NYI  9/1

Sean Couturier, PHI 10/1

Brock Boeser, VAN 25/1

Tyler Seguin, DAL 25/1

Patrik Laine, WPG 30/1

Vladimir Tarasenko, STL 30/1
