What Are NHL Futures Bets?

NHL futures bets are hockey wagers types where sports betting enthusiasts can place money on a team to win a title or on an outcome that will happen later on in the year or season. Depending on what NHL betting site you are using for your wager and when they post their NHL futures odds, you can wager on NHL futures before the start of the new season and throughout the whole campaign. Of course, the most popular NHL future bet is to predict which team will win the Stanley Cup, but there are many wagers also played on which team will win their respective conferences, who will win players awards like MVP and so on. 

Stanley Cup Futures Wagers

What NHL team will win the Stanley Cup next season? This is something you can wager on any day of the year, as oddsmakers tend to release similar hockey futures odds as soon as the previous season is over. With similar NHL futures bets, you can expect lines to move during the whole NHL season, depending on the actual performance of the different NHL teams. 

Usually a top-ranked team in the league can get backed at +400 odds to win the Cup. This means that, if successful, your wager will return $4 for every $1 wagered. However, some of the last-place teams in this NHL future market will be available at +10000. So, as you can see, the payout for predicting correctly who will win Lord Stanley is very interesting, and this is true nearly at any point of the season. This is why NHL hockey futures wagers are so popular amongst fans and bettors. 

Division And Conference NHL Futures Wagering

The NHL is made of two conferences, the Eastern and Western, with two divisions forming each conference, the Atlantic and Metropolitan in the East and the Central and Pacific in the West). The best three teams from each division will make it to the Stanley Cup playoffs, in addition to two wild-card teams. The wild-card teams are the two franchises with the highest point total that didn’t make the top three of their division. 

The top seed from each conference will play the lower-seeded wild-card team, while the top of the opposite division within their conference takes on the higher-seeded wild-card squad. The second and third seeds from each division clash in the first round of the playoffs. After the first step, matchups are then determined by seeding, with the highest remaining seed in the conference that will take on the lowest remaining seed. 

NHL Awards Betting

Wagering on player awards is also a trendy NHL futures market in the states where this kind of bet is allowed. The Hart Memorial Trophy is given to the most valuable player in the NHL regular season, while the Conn Smythe Trophy is for the most valuable player in the NHL playoffs. These two are the most popular NHL Awards from a betting perspective. However, many other awards attract wagerings like the James Norris Memorial Trophy (Best Defenseman), the Vezina Trophy (Best Goaltender), and several more.
