Odds to Win the Hart Memorial Trophy: McDavid, Draisaitl Share Top Honors

Odds to Win the 2020 Hart Memorial Trophy

The Hart Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the “player judged most valuable to his team” in the NHL, and according to oddsmakers, a pair of Edmonton Oilers are the co-favorites to win the hardware in the 2019-20 season.

As of March 3, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are the +200 co-faves to become the unofficial NHL MVP at BetOnline. They’ve been on an absolute tear of late, highlighted by an 8-3 Oilers win over the Nashville Predators in which McDavid and Draisaitl combined for 10 points. Draisaitl scored four times in the contest, while McDavid chipped in with four assists.

There’s No Slowing Down McDavid and Draisaitl

At this point, it’s worth wondering if anyone can catch up to the superstar duo. Draisaitl looks like the clear league MVP right now, as the German is the only player in the NHL in triple digits in points (107). Chasing him are McDavid (94), David Pastrnak (91), Artemi Panarin (90) and Nathan MacKinnon (86).

It’s especially impressive to see McDavid in second place on the scoring list considering he recently missed six games with a quadriceps injury. With Edmonton in the thick of the Pacific Division race and only 16 games remaining in the regular season, Draisaitl looks like the clear choice for the Hart Trophy. His +200 price is incredibly appealing given the substantial gap in the points race.

Panarin is Tearing it Up in NYC

One name to keep an eye on is Panarin. The Russian was +3300 to win the Hart in early February but has since seen his odds rise all the way to +800. Panarin has breathed new life into the Rangers offense in his first year in New York, as he’s tied for the team lead in goals (32) while leading in assists (58) and plus-minus (+34).

The Rangers have been rolling of late and are in the hunt for a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Panarin has his work cut out for him to catch up to Draisaitl and McDavid, but if he can lead the Rangers to a playoff spot, he’s going to be in the Hart conversation at the end of the season.
