NHL odds: Avs, Lightning, Maple Leafs are 2023 Stanley Cup favorites

After defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Final, the 2022 Colorado Avalanche are now tied for most combined wins in the regular season and playoffs with 72.

The Colorado Avalanche have dethroned the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning. After a hard-fought six-game series, Jared Bednar’s team have finally reached the top of the NHL.

As we say goodbye to the 2021-22 NHL season, we begin to turn the page to 2022-23 with the NHL Draft and free agency taking place in a few weeks.

Before we see some big trades and destiny-shifting signings, let’s take a look at the betting favorites for the 2023 Stanley Cup, courtesy of our friends at PointsBet.

As you’ve expect, the Cup finalists, the Avalanche (+450) and Lightning, are two of the top three betting favorites with the Maple Leafs sharing similar odds to Tampa Bay (+900).

If you’re looking for a long shot, try the +50000 Arizona Coyotes.
