Odds to win the 2021 Stanley Cup

Less than 24 hours after the Tampa Bay Lightning left the bubble with Lord Stanley, we’ve got odds on who the next NHL champion will be.

It doesn’t take long after the Stanley Cup is skated to start thinking about the next NHL season. And the odds are already available for the 2021 NHL Champions.

The Colorado Avalanche are the favorites at 8-1. The ‘Lanche finished with the #2 seed in the Western Conference in 2020, and have $22 million in cap space to play with this offseason. With young, emerging stars such as Nathan MacKinnon, Cale Makar, and Andre Burakovsky all being under 25 years old, Denver will be a hot destination for players looking to win a title as soon as possible.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will be the second choice at 10-1 to repeat. The Bolts bring back 15 players from the championship team, with only Kevin Shattenkirk from the top three lines or defensive pairs an unrestricted free agent for next season. They won’t have much room to maneuver under the cap, but will have plenty of assets available in draft picks and quality young players to offer if needed.

Here are the odds to win the NHL’s 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs:
