First Round NHL Playoffs Odds & Series Pricing (East)

First Round NHL Playoffs Odds & Series Pricing (East)

Stanley Cup odds, series prices and first round betting tips for the Eastern Conference

The first round matchups were decided last night and online sportsbooks began rolling out their updated Stanley Cup odds early this morning along with Conference pricing and Odds to win the First Round Series.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Other than the Washington Capitals (+400) and Pittsburgh Penguins (+800), not many NHL odds makers are giving the East much hope to win the Stanley Cup but there are some nice Conference Futures available on the Florida Panthers (+700), New York Rangers (+850) and Tampa Bay Lightning (+1150).

Philadelphia (+255) at Washington (-411) is the most lopsided set of First Round Series Odds from either conference but one thing to keep in mind is here is that the odds have been artificially inflated to compensate for heavy public demand that comes with any President’s Trophy winning team. Yes, the Caps are great but they are not ‘4-to-1 great’ and the club’s all-time record in opening round series as the host is only 4-9.

The Flyers are 15-8 their past 23 games, outscoring opponents 3.0 to 2.5 , and they’ve been a .500 club on the road since January (11-11 SU); often playing as the dog (8-9 SU). The Flyers split with Washington this season (2-2) and haven’t lost a season series against the Caps since 2009, going 15-9 since. All I’m saying is that the pressure is clearly on Washington for this round and if they try and dismiss these Flyers for even a second, things could get a lot tighter than these odds indicate.

SERIES PRICES

Sportsbook odds are going to vary based on action so it really pays to shop around before booking any playoff futures. An example would be with the New York Rangers, who are paying back +850 to win the conference at Pinnacle but only +700 at Sports Interaction. Unfortunately, I only have one set to offer for these series prices but others will be popping up. Take your time and do your homework.

(1) Washington vs. (WC 2) Philadelphia

Odds: Capitals -411

(1) Florida vs. (WC 1) New York Islanders

Odds: Panthers -140

(2) Tampa Bay vs. (3) Detroit

Odds: Lighting -194

(2) Pittsburgh vs. (3) New York Rangers

Odds: Penguins -143
