Find the latest analysis for NHL All Star Weekend Betting Odds

The best and brightest are set to entertain at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis as the 2020 NHL All-Star Weekend is here. Friday night will feature the skills competition, including the brand new Shooting Stars event in which 10 players will be shooting at various targets on the ice and accumulating a point total – oh, and the players will be elevated off the ice on a platform behind the nets. After the skills competition, Saturday night will have its 3-on-3 tournament with each of the four divisions being represented. Additionally, for the first time ever, there will be a 3-on-3 game between the Canadian and American women’s teams.

With no regular-season games taking place for nearly a week, you can still have action this weekend as online sportsbook Bovada has released odds for each of the skills competitions as well as the tournament on Saturday. For the 3-on-3 tournament, the Atlantic Division is favored at +200, followed by the Pacific Division at +210, the Central Division at +240 and the Metropolitan Division bringing up the rear at +290. I will outline the odds with a pick for each of the skills competitions and the tournament.

Accuracy Shooting

This competition can be a crapshoot as a bad pass can throw off a shooter’s rhythm or one miss can get in their head and cause them to start rushing. However, it’s also one of the most exciting comps – seeing these all-stars pick off their targets in such a short time is absolutely impressive. Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl, who has 27 goals this year, is the +280 favorite to win. That said, I’m going with the second man on the oddsboard, Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers at +425. He has a tremendous shot and is an accurate passer and I think he’s going to shine on the big stage.

NHL Accuracy Shooting 2020 - Winner
Leon Draisaitl+280
Jonathan Huberdeau+425
Mark Scheifele+450
Nico Hischier+600
Tomas Hertl+600
Alex Pietrangelo+650
Jaccob Slavin+700
Tyler Bertuzzi+700

Fastest Skater

Well, it’s hard to bet against the favorite in this category and that is Connor McDavid at -350. Arguably the best player in the league, he has won this competition the last three years and it’s hard to see anyone knocking him off this year. Nathan MacKinnon (+350) of the Colorado Avalanche will fly around there pretty good and Jack Eichel (+450) of the Buffalo Sabres has deceptive speed. But although their odds are more enticing than the favorite’s, you can’t wager against McDavid.

Travis Konecny+1800

Hardest Shot

The reigning champion in this category, Norris Trophy favorite John Carlson, may have a tough time retaining his title and that is why he is second on the oddsboard at +120. The favorite is none other than three-time champion Shea Weber at -165. The captain of the Montreal Canadiens hasn’t been an all-star since the last time he won this competition in 2017 and in his last victory the puck was clocked at 102.8 mph, equaling Carlson’s hardest last year. But in Weber’s two previous wins, he shot the puck at 108.1 and 108.5 mph, so if he can step into it like the old days, at -165 he should be a runaway.

NHL hardest shot 2020 - winner
Shea Weber-165
John Carlson+120
Seth Jones+800
Mark Giordano+1100
Victor Hedman+1100
Elias Pettersson+2000

Save Streak

There is a three-way tie among the favorites to win the save streak competition with Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, Capitals goalie Braden Holtby and Blues netminder Jordan Binnington all having +400 odds. This is the third year for this competition and neither of the previous winners, Marc-Andre Fleury and Henrik Lundqvist, are in it this year. With the odds being high for all of the goalies, choosing two may be your better option to maximize your chances to win. That said, I like Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck at +550 to win as he has the most shutouts this year and has faced the most shots in the league.

NHL save streak 2020 - winner
Andrei Vasilevskiy+400
Braden Holtby+400
Jordan Binnington+400
Connor Hellebuyck+550
Frederik Andersen+600
Jacob Markstrom+600
David Rittich+650
Tristan Jarry+650

Shooting Stars

As talked about off the top, the brand new event debuting at the Enterprise Center is the shooting stars competition where players will be on a platform over the stands and will shoot at targets on the ice that have varying point totals. Each player gets seven shots and most points wins. NHL goal scoring leader David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins is co-favored with Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane at +400. Who knows how this event will play out and who will be crowned the inaugural champion, but for the value, Kane is my pick as he is known for having some of the best hands in the NHL. I’m sure he will dazzle in the competition.

NHL shooting stars 2020 - winner
David Pastrnak +400
Patrick Kane+400
Tyler Seguin+550
David Perron+600
Ryan O’Reilly+650
Brady Tkachuk+700
Matthew Tkachuk+700
Mitch Marner+700
Women’s Elite All-Star (CAN)+1800
Women’s Elite All-Star (USA)+1800

Women’s 3-on-3

Another inaugural event will take place when the women’s Team USA and the women’s Team Canada compete in a 3-on-3 game. This should truly be very exciting as this is a great opportunity to showcase their games and you know they are going to bring it in this 20-minute contest. These teams are also playing a five-game rivalry series leading up to the 2020 IIHF Women’s World Championship in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in late March and early April. The States have won the first two games of the rivalry series by a combined score of 6-2 and you can get them as EVEN money underdogs for this event and that’s where my money will be going.

Elite Women’s 3-on-3 2020 - Winner
Women’s Elite All-Star (CAN)-130
Women’s Elite All-Star (USA)EVEN

Men’s 3-on-3 Tournament

The favorite to win the 3-on-3 tournament is the Atlantic Division at +200 but they have appeared in two finals and haven’t had a win. The team is stacked top to bottom, including the NHL’s leading goal scorer, David Pastrnak, and perennial Norris Trophy candidate Victor Hedman. However, the Central Division at +240 is providing slightly better value and I think it has a better lineup with speed, skill and goaltending.

Atlantic Division+200
Pacific Division+210
Central Division+240
Metropolitan Division+290
