NHL Atlantic Division Odds: Bruins Paving the Way

Boston Bruins have the best odds to win the NHL Atlantic Division.

At the start of the 2019-20 NHL season, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs were widely perceived as the main contenders for the Atlantic Division banner. But as play resumes after the all-star break, it’s the Boston Bruins who are now the odds-on division favorites.

The Bruins are -190 to garner the Atlantic banner at Bovada, with the Lightning (+180), Florida Panthers (+1500), Maple Leafs (+2000), Buffalo Sabres (+10000), Montreal Canadiens (+15000), Ottawa Senators (+250000) and Detroit Red Wings (+300000) rounding out the list.

In late November, the Bruins were priced at +140 to win the Atlantic, so it’s clear oddsmakers believe the B’s are well on their way to capturing the division for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign. The Bruins’ home record of 17-2-9 has been the key to their success, and they’re only three points behind the Washington Capitals for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Other Atlantic Teams are Starting to Catch the Bruins

The gap between the B’s and other Atlantic teams has been rapidly shrinking, however. For as well as Boston has played, the Lightning and Maple Leafs have turned it on in a big way over the past few months and are only seven and 11 points back of Boston, respectively.

Florida remains in the No. 3 spot in the Atlantic at 28-16-5 and was the hottest team in the East as of this writing. Riding a six-game winning streak, the Panthers continue to fill the back of opposing teams’ nets with ease, evidenced by an NHL-high 183 goals. The Panthers have their work cut out for them to finish in first place in the Atlantic, but at the current +1500 odds, they’re certainly worth a look.
