The puck drops in just a couple of days.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are +2,000 to win the Stanley Cup this season. They are also +900 to win the Eastern Conference and +350 to win the Metropolitan Division.
Across the state, the Philadelphia Flyers are +900 to win the Metropolitan Division.
Crosby and Malkin have healthy odds on player futures
If you’d rather bet on an individual player than the entire Penguins team, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin provide a number of options.
Crosby is +1,100 to be the NHL MVP and +2,300 to be the league’s top goal scorer (the Rocket Richard Trophy). DraftKings also has bets on whether Crosby will have the most points in the NHL regular season (+1,500) or the most assists (+1,100). His odds on being the Penguins’ top goal scorer are obviously much lower (+135).
Malkin would bring an even greater return. He’s +2,000 to be the NHL MVP and +3,500 to be the top goal scorer. Furthermore, he’s +2,700 to lead the league in points and +2,000 to lead the league in assists. His line for leading the Penguins in goals is +250.
Point total, playoffs, round out Penguins betting options
A few other options for Penguins betting involves whether or not Pittsburgh will make the playoffs. The Pens are -240 to be a playoff team and +190 to miss the postseason entirely.
The team’s season point total has also been set at 97.5. The over is at -122, with the under paying +100.
Capitals favored to win the Metropolitan Conference
The Washington Capitals (+275) are the favorites to win the Metropolitan Conference, which is home to both the Penguins and Flyers. The Carolina Hurricanes (+325) are next, followed by the Penguins (+350), NJ Devils (+750), and Flyers (+900).
Expect the odds to fluctuate as the season continues and the wins, losses, goals, and points pile up.
