NHL odds: Avs, Lightning, Maple Leafs are 2023 Stanley Cup favorites

The Colorado Avalanche have dethroned the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning. After a hard-fought six-game series, Jared Bednar’s team have finally reached the top of the NHL.

As we say goodbye to the 2021-22 NHL season, we begin to turn the page to 2022-23 with the NHL Draft and free agency taking place in a few weeks.

Before we see some big trades and destiny-shifting signings, let’s take a look at the betting favorites for the 2023 Stanley Cup, courtesy of our friends at PointsBet.

As you’ve expect, the Cup finalists, the Avalanche (+450) and Lightning, are two of the top three betting favorites with the Maple Leafs sharing similar odds to Tampa Bay (+900).

If you’re looking for a long shot, try the +50000 Arizona Coyotes.
