Odds on Every NHL Team to Make or Miss the Playoffs in 2019-20

Odds on Every NHL Team to Make or Miss the Playoffs in 2019-20

The 2019-20 NHL season is right around the corner, and both puck bettors and sportsbooks are eagerly awaiting the official puck drop of the new campaign when the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals kick things off on October 2. If you’re looking for a different type of futures prop, odds have been released on every NHL team to make or miss the playoffs this year.

At Bovada, the Tampa Bay Lightning are the heaviest chalk to make the playoffs at -500, with the Toronto Maple Leafs (-350), Vegas Golden Knights (-350), Colorado Avalanche (-300) and Boston Bruins (-300) right behind them.

When it comes to teams that oddsmakers are giving the longest shot to go to the postseason, the Ottawa Senators (+625), Detroit Red Wings (+375), Los Angeles Kings (+275), Anaheim Ducks (+275) and Buffalo Sabres (+180) are tabbed as the least likely to reach the promised land.

Don’t Sleep on the Blackhawks

Value-wise, I’m all over the Chicago Blackhawks to get back to the playoffs at their current EVEN odds. I think the ’Hawks are being undervalued due to their underwhelming past few seasons, but the offseason free-agent signing of Robin Lehner could do wonders for their postseason hopes. 

Lehner was a Vezina Trophy candidate in his only year with the New York Islanders and joins a Blackhawks team that’s had no problem scoring goals but has struggled to keep the puck out of its own net. Corey Crawford’s best days are clearly behind him, so if Lehner can shore things up between the pipes, I think Chicago could be in for a major bounce-back season.

Can the Islanders Really Follow Up Their Stellar Regular Season?

Speaking of the Islanders, Bovada is quite high on New York to make the playoffs at -145 odds. But at their +115 price to miss the postseason, I’m more than comfortable to back them at that number. The Islanders were the biggest surprise team of the 2018-19 season, but without Lehner in the fold, I expect some regression on Long Island.
