Who is favored to win Conn Smythe Trophy heading into Game 4 of Stanley Cup Final?

We take a look at updated odds to win the 2022 Conn Smythe Trophy ahead of Game 4.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Colorado Avalanche at Tampa Bay Lightning Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Stanley Cup Final between the Colorado Avalanche and Tampa Bay Lightning heads into Game 4 at Amalie Arena on Wednesday, June 22. Colorado has a 2-1 series lead after the Lightning cruised to a 6-2 win in Game 3. ABC and ESPN+ will be handing the broadcast and streaming.

Tampa Bay is a slight -115 favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook. Colorado is betting at -105.

Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar (-150) remains the overwhelming betting favorite to win the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP of the playoffs. Even if the Colorado doesn’t win the Cup, it’s very possible Makar, who won the Norris Trophy for NHL’s best defenseman Tuesday night, will win the Conn Smythe based on his overall body of work.

Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy (+380) is the highest Lightning player on the board. Avalanche goalie Darcy Kuemper (+20000) saw his odds drop after a poor showing in Game 3. Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov (+550) and Avalanche forward Mikko Rantanen (+900) are both risers that could take the trophy with big games down the stretch. Lightning forward Ondrej Palat (+7500) has been clutch this postseason and is a very interesting long shot.
