Early 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

By Hank Blaine

Although the parties haven’t ceased in Vegas, oddsmakers have released lines for the 2024 Stanley Cup. The defending champions Golden Knights are a tepid +1300 choice to lift Lord Stanley’s goblet. The favorite is Colorado at +800 followed by Edmonton and Toronto both at +1100. Is Vegas the top pick to repeat? Check out early 2024 Stanley Cup odds, analysis, and way too early picks.

Odds to Win the 2024 Stanley Cup

Updated as of June 23rd, 2023

There are not lines

Top Pick to Win the 2023 Stanley Cup

Florida played excellent hockey to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. But once the Panthers got to the finals, it was obvious from the first game that Florida was hopelessly overmatched. The Knights showed why so many pegged them the 2023 Cup winners before the NHL Season started.

Vegas has zero holes to fill on the roster. So, yes, although there will be changes and it’s tough to repeat, the odds, at least for now, make the Golden Knights an overlay.

Second Pick to Win the 2023 Stanley Cup

NYR was supposed to take the next step this season. They didn’t because the Rangers ran into a super motivated New Jersey Devils squad in the playoffs. The good news if you’re an NYR fan is that the Rangers pushed the Devils to 7 games.

The Patrick Kane move didn’t work out as planned. Kane could play with the Rangers next season or he may be in a different uniform.

No problem either way. NYR is the type of franchise that doesn’t stay down for long. Expect the front office to do what’s necessary to ensure the Rangers are competitive in 2024.

Third Pick to Win the 2023 Stanley Cup

The 2022 NHL Stanley Cup winners didn’t have the type of season so many expected from them. For sure, Colorado can get it done in 2024.

But the odds make the Avs unplayable for the top spot. We’re picking them third as an acknowledgement that they can win the Cup. However, accepting +800 on Colorado to beat Edmonton, the Kings, the Stars, and the Knights in the Western Conference make the Avs an underlay.

Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2023 Stanley Cup

Florida beat Boston, Toronto, and Carolina to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. No wonder the Panthers flubbed versus Vegas.

If Florida keeps their core intact, the Panthers should be one of the teams to beat in the Eastern Conference. Let’s not forget that Florida had the best record in the NHL in 2022. So the Panthers are a franchise with legs.
