NHL Vezina Trophy Odds: Vasilevskiy the Betting Favorite

Andrei Vasilevskiy Is The Vezina Trophy Odds Favorites.

There’s a crowd at the top of the list for odds to win the NHL’s Vezina Trophy in 2020-21, awarded to the best goaltender across the league.

The hardware was won in last year’s shortened season by Winnipeg Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck. He and the Flyers’ Carter Hart are right behind Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning for top odds to win the Vezina Trophy this season.

Hellebuyck Has A Good Chance To Repeat

Hellebuyck was phenomenal last season, finishing with 31 wins, six shutouts and a 2.57 goals-against average while propelling the Jets into the first round of the NHL playoffs. He sits behind Vasilevskiy and Hart with the third-best Vezina Trophy odds on the list at +950.

With the NHL adopting an all-Canadian division this season, he will often be playing opposite Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and Frederik Andersen of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who are two of the best goalies in the league. If the Jets can make the playoffs in this division, it will be in large part due to Hellebuyck’s play.

Hellebuyck is off to a nice start this season, compiling a 5-3-1 record with a 2.55 GAA and a .911 save percentage. While he’s not leading any of the goalie categories at this point, the trajectory he’s on should vault him into consideration for top goalie.

If he wants to be the first netminder to repeat as the Vezina winner since Martin Brodeur did it in 2007 and 2008, he will have to outperform both those goalies and be as solid as or better than he was last year.

Who Provides the Best Value

New Jersey Devils goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood fits the bill as the best value pick at +1100 odds to win the Vezina Trophy. Blackwood has been tremendous in the three games he’s played, going 2-0-1 with a sparkling 1.89 GAA and a .948 save percentage.

Right now he and his teammates are dealing with serious COVID-19 problems that have led to the postponement of their most recent games. However, I believe the Devils will still end up playing 56 games.

Once they get back on the ice and Blackwood is cleared to go, he will continue to jump up the Vezina Trophy oddsboard, which means that now is the time to make a bet on him.
