NHL Odds: 2013 Division Title Futures

The Vancouver Canucks cruised to the Northwest Division title last season, and they're the favorites on the NHL betting props at the sportsbooks to claim that division crown once again this year as teams begin to gear up for the hockey season.

Vancouver is the EVEN favorite at Bovada to win the Northwest Division title in 2013, putting them ahead of the Edmonton Oilers (+300), Minnesota Wild (+300), Calgary Flames (+1200), and Colorado Avalanche (+1200).

Last season the Canucks finished 21 points ahead of the Flames for first place in the division, and they were the only team in the Northwest to make the playoffs. The Wild bulked up in the offseason by signing forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, while the Oilers have a stable of young stars looking to lead their team up the standings.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings are then the -125 favorites to win the Pacific Division title on the NHL betting odds at Bovada, with the Chicago Blackhawks the +150 favorites to claim the Central Division crown this season.

Over in the Eastern Conference the biggest favorites on those NHL futures at Bovada are the Boston Bruins, who sit at +130 on the odds to win the Northeast Division. The Buffalo Sabres are at +300 on that list, with Canadian squads Montreal (+500), Ottawa (+550), and Toronto (+550) rounding out those division odds.

The Rangers were just one point ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins (+210) in the Atlantic Division standings in 2011/12 - the Penguins, though, were forced to play without star center Sidney Crosby for most of last season.
