Best Value Bets To Win 2024 Stanley Cup

Los Angeles Kings (+3000, Caesars)

With how poorly the Kings have played over the last month or so, we can now get them at a fantastic 30/1 price to win the Stanley Cup. I believe a string of bad luck was the best thing that could happen to this team. It's always best to get your worst hockey out before the end of the season and, of course, the playoffs.

Positive regression is coming for Los Angeles. I gave them out this preseason around this same price, and now you get another chance to jump on board if you missed it. Their odds got as short as 13/1 to win the Stanley Cup a few months ago, and with their recent cold streak, you can get an excellent price again.

Carolina Hurricanes (+650, DraftKings)

I gave Carolina out at 12/1 when they were also on their cold streak earlier this season, and now they are down to 6.5/1 at most books with how hot they have been lately. I mentioned in that article that goaltending was the biggest issue for the Hurricanes, and they seemed to have solved that issue by starting Pyotr Kochetkov in the net and benching Antti Raanta, who was struggling. Carolina owns the best defense in the NHL, allowing just 25 shots on their net per game on average. They are now the favorites to win the cup.

BetQL Model Picks: Best NHL Playoff Race Bet & Values

BetQL Simulations

BetQL simulates every game of the NHL season 10,000 times and then gives us the percentage chance that a team will make the playoffs in 2024. It has absolutely dominated the hockey season, and the race to the playoffs should be no different. Let's take a look at its best bets:

Eastern Conference Wild Card: New York Islanders 98.07%

It's clear via our simulations that the New York Islanders have the best chance to secure a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, with them getting the first spot 98% of the time over 10,000 simulations. They would have to almost lose the rest of their games and have every other team in the race to win their games, the it is highly likely they will get in.

To Make The Playoffs - Eastern Conference Values

  • New York Islanders 98.07% | Current FD odds: -3500 (97% implied) | 0.85% EDGE
  • Washington Capitals 44.67% | Current FD odds: +215 (32% implied) | 12.92% EDGE

To Miss The Playoffs - Eastern Conference Values

  • Philadelphia Flyers 96.44% | Current FD odds: -620 (86% implied) | 10.33% EDGE
  • Pittsburgh Penguins 86.46% | Current FD odds: -520 (84% implied) | 2.59% EDGE

About BetQL's NHL Picks

Getting our expert picks for value on the Stanley Cup is great, but what makes BetQL so popular is the model plays that bring you winners each and every day of the NHL season. The BetQL NHL model has a proven success rate and track record that we show every day in our articles, and goes on long winning streaks on certain trends that you will want to check out and jump on the money train. Indeed, it will keep you seeing green all season long while you wait on your Stanley Cup futures to pay out. It can be hard to make wagers on the ice, and a lot of people aren't good at betting on hockey. BetQL makes it easy and gets you the best value each and every night. That's how you win in the NHL, value picks. There is too much variance to rely on a favorite every night.

The BetQL model simulates every single game, every single night, 10,000 times to make sure you get the very best value on every single bet. The NHL model ranks bets based on a "star-scale" system, which rates each bet 1-5 stars based on how valuable the wager is. A 1-star bet tells you to stay away, and that there is no value there at the current number, while the higher you go on the scale means more value is to be had. A 5-star bet is the most valuable wager we have, and we would recommend putting a unit on that particular wager. BetQL encourages a wager on 3-star and higher bets, with 3-star being a smaller bet and 5-star being a larger one. We have bets on the spread, total, moneyline and 1st-half of every NHL game, so make sure to check it out as the lines change!

Taking a Stanley Cup winner future bet simply means you are betting on who is going to win the Stanley Cup Final at the end of the season to take home the championship.

You can place these bets at any sportsbook of your choosing, but I recommend using whatever book gives you the best number to get the maximum value on your bet. If one book is offering +900, while the other is offering +950 and you want to bet it, always take the +550. It's extremely important to always get the best number if you want to have long-term betting success.
