2024/25 NHL Stanley Cup Odds: Oilers favoured

With the 2023/24 NHL season now in the rearview, let’s look ahead at the favourites to win the Cup next June.

The Florida Panthers lifted their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, outlasting the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 to keep Canada – and its prodigal son Connor McDavid – from a long-awaited championship.

Can the Oilers get back to the Cup final? What are the Panthers’ odds to repeat?

Let’s dive in!

McDavid and the Oilers (+700) are the outright favourites to win the Stanley Cup in 2024/25.

A Canadian-based team has not won it all since the 1993 Montreal Canadiens, a drought that has now extended to 31 seasons since Lord Stanley returned to the home of hockey.

McDavid is under contract through 2025/26, while running mate Leon Draisaitl has a year left on his deal.

Tied at +900 odds are three teams – the Dallas Stars, Carolina Hurricanes and defending champion Panthers.

The Stars, a team many believe is built to win the Cup, fell just short in 2023/24, losing to Edmonton in the Western Conference Finals. With a (very) young core of Wyatt Johnston, Jason Robertson, Miro Heiskanen and others, expect to see Dallas making deep playoff runs in the years to come.

Carolina is another team that has been knocking at the door, having reached the second round or further each of the last four years.

If you’re assessing the chances for a potential repeat, Florida might have to do it without 57-goal scorer and Game 7-decider Sam Reinhart, who enters free agency this offseason, although GM Bill Zito has built a more-than capable roster around him for another run at the Cup.

2022 champions Colorado (+1000) and the New Jersey Devils (+1000), who missed the playoffs in 2023/24, are joint-third in the betting.

Just behind them are the New York Rangers at +1200, who lost to the Panthers in six games in the Eastern Conference Finals.

A pair of Canadian-based teams in the Toronto Maple Leafs (+1500) and Vancouver Canucks (+1500) share the same odds, with the 2023 champion Vegas Golden Knights just longer at +1600.
