Hockey Betting: 2013 NHL Awards Odds

It's been five years since Sidney Crosby won his first and only Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player, but he goes into the shortened 2013 season as the betting favorite at the sportsbooks to claim that award once again this spring.

Crosby is the 4/1 favorite on the NHL betting props at Bovada to win the Hart Trophy this season. Crosby last claimed that award back in 2006/07, and concussion issues limited him last season to just 22 games - in which he put up 37 points for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning is next at 6/1 on the odds to win the Hart Trophy, followed by the Washington Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin, the Philadelphia Flyers' Claude Giroux, and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Evgeni Malkin, who are all at 13/2 odds.

Ovechkin won the Hart Trophy in both 2007/08 and 2008/09, while Malkin picked up the award last season. Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry, who paid off on the Hart Trophy odds in 2010/11, is part of the 'any other forward' field at Bovada at 11/5 odds.

 

The Vancouver Canucks' Henrik Sedin, who won the Hart Trophy back in the 2009/10 season, is at 19/2 odds right now.

Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson is then the 4/1 favorite at Bovada on the odds to win the Norris Trophy for the second consecutive season. Only two other active players have won the Norris Trophy - the Boston Bruins' Zdeno Chara (9/2), and the Chicago Blackhawks' Duncan Keith (part of The Field at 9/1).

The New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist is the 4/1 favorite at Bovada on the NHL betting props to win the Vezina Trophy for the second year in a row, with Crosby the 11/4 favorite on the odds to win the Art Ross Trophy as the league's points leader.

 

Stamkos is the 11/4 favorite to win the Rocket Richard Trophy for the third time in four seasons as the league's top goal scorer.
