2021 NHL Playoffs: Series Prices

Mark Stone and the Vegas Golden Knights look to finish off the Colorado Avalanche in Game 6 on Thursday, June 10.

It’s the best time of the year for both hockey fans and bettors alike, as the 2021 edition of the Stanley Cup playoffs has narrowed to four teams.

There’s never any shortage of value when the NHL postseason rolls around, and this year’s playoffs are no different. One of the best ways to wager on the playoffs is by betting on NHL playoffs series prices.

Betting on NHL playoffs series prices is simple: all you have to do is predict which team will win the series and move on to the next round and you’ll win money. It doesn’t matter if the series ends in four games or seven – as long as the squad you bet on wins, you’ll cash in.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released NHL playoffs series prices for the Stanley Cup semifinal matchups, which are listed below. As prices get posted for the ensuing series, we’ll add them to this article.

How Does the New Playoff Structure Work?

This year’s playoff structure could produce a never-before-seen Stanley Cup Final. Here’s how it works:

The top four teams in each division qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Unlike last year, there were no wild-card teams. The first two rounds were played within the division, with the opening round in a 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 format and the winners then meeting to determine a division champ.

The four division champs have advanced to the playoff semifinals, where they were reseeded based on their regular-season point totals to set up a new 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 bracket.

For the first time in the traditional East vs West era, the NHL Final format pitting the Eastern Conference champion against the Western Conference champion is out the window, with plenty of new Cup Final options coming to the forefront in Stanley Cup Final exact matchup odds.
