What Will Las Vegas Call Their New NHL Team: Betting Odds

One of the most important times in a franchise's history, the beginning. The NHL’s newest team that will begin play in the 2017-18 season is at that stage. They are currently figuring out what to call themselves and if you want, you can lay down a bet on your favorite potential name of the Las Vegas ______?

The leading option right now on Sports Interaction is the Las Vegas Black Knights at -105. William Foley, the owner of the future franchise, was quoted as saying “I love Black Knights” when asked about the team’s potential name. This is the safe option but safe options aren’t fun. Let’s take a look at some of the more interesting picks.

Las Vegas Black Jacks +510

Clean, crisp and topical. I like it, but I can’t imagine Gary Bettman will. The NHL has been very clear that it does not condone gambling and there is no way that a name with a game of chance in the title will fly. That also eliminates my personal favorite that didn’t make the odds list – the Las Vegas Crap Shoots.

Las Vegas Aces +205

A nice happy medium that’s Vegas-relevant but doesn’t expose too much of the strip in its title. +205 offers a little value but the name just doesn’t have that oomph you’d expect from a pro franchise.

Las Vegas Flamingos +1000

Now this -- this option has that something-something you want from an NHL mascot. It sounds great, it’s a nod to old-school Vegas and it’s kid-friendly. I’ll admit that it’s pretty out there and not that likely but if he went with the Flamingos, Bill Foley would instantly become my favorite NHL owner.

Las Vegas Stickmen +3300

As awesome as this would be – do I have to explain why? It won't and shouldn’t happen. Yeah sure, hockey references are great, but do they outweigh the heavy sexual innuendos? Let’s wait and find out.
