Odds to win Stanley Cup 2024 are +900 for the Carolina Hurricanes and Colorado Avalanche. Vegas Golden Knights are placed at +1200.

Only eight NHL teams have successfully defended their championship. The Golden Knights will be desperately trying to join the illustrious list.

With the new season just a month away, the Stanley Cup predictions have well and truly hit the market. The 2023-24 season is all set to begin on October 10 with a triple header.

It has been three decades since a Canadian team last lifted the silverware, with the 1993 triumph of the Montreal Canadiens being the last one.

The likes of the Maple Leafs, Oilers, Canadiens, Flames, Jets, and Cannucks will be doing everything in their might to break this lengthy drought.

Among all the 32 teams in the NHL, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are seen as the least favored teams to win the championship at +25000.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have the best NHL championship odds at +900. The Canes lifted the only Stanley Cup title in their franchise history back in 2006.

Likewise, they are +500 to win the Prince of Wales Trophy as the champions of the Eastern Conference. The Canes are heavy favorites at +250 to become the winner of the Metropolitan Division.

Carolina has been a dominating force with 489 regular season points since the 2018-19 season after head coach Brind'Amour took over the team.

The Hurricanes relished a phenomenal run last season before being swept 4-0 against the Florida Panthers in the final of the Eastern Conference.

With the new additions of Dmitry Orlov, Caleb Jones, Michael Bunting, Tony DeAngelo, Griffin Mendel, and Brendan Lemieux, the Canes will be looking to go at least one step further than the last season and reach the Stanley Cup Finals.

Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche odds to win Stanley Cup are +900 at the beginning of the season. Colorado will play its first match of 2023/24 against the Kings.

The Avs have so far won three NHL championships in their history in 1996, 2001, and 2022. They became the Central Division champions in 2023.

As the team looked to repeat the iconic feat of 2022, they faced an upset loss against Seattle Kraken in the very first round of the 2023 playoffs.

The Avalanche are +400 to become the outright winner of the Western Conference and +140 to become the Central Division winner in 2023/24.

Likewise, they are second favorites after the Hurricanes to become the 2024 Presidents Trophy winner at +750. Meanwhile, the Canes are at +650.

Nathan MacKinnon, Cale Makar, Mikko Rantanen, and Gabriel Landeskog will once again have to play a crucial role if the Avs are to win the title.

Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton Oilers are the third favorites to win Stanley Cup at +1000. The Oilers have won the championship 5 times, the last one being in 1990.

With arguably the best player of the decade Connor McDavid at the helm of the team, the Edmonton-based team will always be seen as favorites.

From clinching the coveted Art Ross Trophy 5 times to the Hart Memorial Trophy thrice, McDavid has won it all at the individual level. The ultimate silverware of lifting the Stanley Cup is the only missing piece so far in otherwise the almost perfect career for the ice hockey center.

Connor will have the support of fellow teammates Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, among others to relish his NHL championship quest.

The Oilers are +375 to become the outright winner of the Western Conference and +200 to become the Pacific Divisio winner in the new season.

New Jersey Devils

NJ Devils are at +1000 to clinch the 2024 Stanley Cup championship. The Devils will be playing under the tutelage of head coach Lindy Ruff.

The Devils clinched the playoff spot in 2023 with a regular season record of 52–22–8. Their playoff run ended in the 2nd round against the Canes.

The center depth of Jack Hughes and Nico Hischier aided by Jesper Bratt and Timo Meier in the wings is by far the strongest aspect of the Devils.

Hughes led the team charts last season in terms of goals, assists, and total points. The hopes of New Jersey will once again rest on the shoulders of their premier athlete.

For the upcoming 2023-24 season, the Devils are +600 to become the outright Eastern Conference winner, +240 for the Metropolitan Division, and +900 for the Presidents Trophy.

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Maple Leafs odds of winning the Stanley Cup are +1000. The Toronto-based NHL team has won 13 championships, second only to Montreal.

Despite the storied history of the Leafs, their last championship was way back in 1967. They will be itching to break the title drought of 56 years.

Maple Leafs are +750 to win the 2024 Presidents Trophy, +600 for the outright Eastern Conference Winner and +250 to win the Atlantic Division.

Toronto registered its first playoff series win since 2004 with the first-round victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, their 2023-24 run did not last longer as they lost to the Panthers in the second round of the playoffs.

The franchise will be delighted to have signed the 4-year extension contract of Auston Matthews with an AAV of $13.25 million, making him the highest-paid player in the league.

Alongside Matthews, John Traves, Mitch Marner, Jake Muzzin and William Nylander will once again have to step up for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Vegas Golden Knights

NHL Vegas Odds to defend their championship title are +1200. The Golden Knights are the fastest expansion NHL team to win the Stanley Cup.

In just its sixth season in the league, Vegas went on to claim the championship writing the franchise name with golden letters in history books.

The Golden Knights have already advanced to the Western Conference four times in six seasons and won the conference championships twice.

After triumphing over the Dallas Stars by 4-2 in the 2023 Conference Finals, the Knights defeated the Florida Panthers in 5 games to win the title.

Once again, the trio of Jonathan Marchessault, Chandler Stephenson and Jack Eichel will have to bring to their A-games for the title defense run.

The Golden Knights are +600 to become the outright Western Conference winner in 2024. Accordingly, they are +250 to become the Pacific Division winner and +1100 for the Presidents Trophy.

Boston Bruins

Bruins odds to win Stanley Cup in the upcoming season are +1400. The Bears will be looking to add to their total of six NHL championships.

The Boston-based NHL team last won the Cup in 2011 under Claude Julien. Their other title triumphs came in 1929, 1939, 1941, 1970 and 1972.

The Bruins will be playing their 100th season in the National Hockey League in 2023-24, which speaks volumes about their longevity and legacy.

Boston Bruins relished a phenomenal regular season in 2022-23 making the NHL record for most wins (65) and points (135) in a season. Despite being in such a rich vein of form, they bottled a 3-1 lead against the Panthers to lose in the very first round of the playoffs.

The B's are +800 to become the outright winner of the Eastern Conference, +325 for the Atlantic Division and +900 for the Presidents Trophy.
