Hockey Betting Odds & Lines
Brace yourself for some live action on the ice. Hockey will return with 24 teams competing for the 2020 playoffs. At BetMGM, we have updated our pro hockey odds lists to reflect the new unprecedented playoff format.
Hockey fans will see the remaining 16 teams play in eight separate best-of-five series. The Boston Bruins remain favorites to lift the 2020 championship cup while the Vegas Golden Knights are looking in good form as they bid for a place in the playoffs.
Injured players would’ve benefited from the extended break over the past few months and every team should be fully healthy once games resume. Colorado Avalanche will see the return of Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, and Nazem Kadri to name a few. The Avs title odds have also improved! Teams such as the Capitals, Penguins, and Stars also saw their odds improve greatly.
The new 24-team format has also allowed for some teams’ odds to worsen, including the Predators. They will need to play consistently well in order to have some chance of winning in these unique playoffs.
It also serves well to keep an eye on the 2020 championship trophy dark horses. The Columbus Blue Jackets managed to be a competitive team and climbed the rankings despite the odds. In a year when they were expected to stay in the league’s basement, they finished 12th-overall with 81 points. The New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers are also worth keeping an eye on—they were the fifth- and eighth-highest scoring teams, respectively.
Who are you favoring to win the 2020 championship trophy? Whatever your betting style, BetMGM has the ideal sportsbook for you.
