A glance at the NHL futures board and you’ll see that this might be the best opportunity for a Canadian NHL team to win the Stanley Cup since the Montreal Canadiens took home the mug in 1993. The Tampa Bay Lightning remain +300 favourites and rightfully so as they’re running away with first place in the league with 81 points, eight better than the Calgary Flames. However, if this isn’t Tampa Bay’s year to win it all, there’s a lot of Canadian content just below the Bolts on the odds board. The Flames sit second at +600, followed by the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs at +800 apiece.
When it comes to betting value on a daily basis, you’d better be looking north of the border too. Five of the top money-earning teams on the puck-line are Canadian based. The Flames, Jets and Leafs are all in that mix along with the Montreal Canadiens (+6.19 units) and the surprising Vancouver Canucks (+4.67 units).
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Flyers are the hottest team in the league heading into Wednesday’s action. The Flyers have won eight in a row to climb back into the Eastern Conference wild card picture. They’re now seven points back of the second wild card spot with two very winnable home games coming up as the Los Angeles Kings are in town Thursday before the Anaheim Ducks visit on Saturday.
Thursday’s NBA trade deadline has the whole league – and oddsmakers – holding their breath to see what transpires. The Philadelphia 76ers already made a big splash in acquiring Tobias Harris, which may force some of the other Eastern Conference contenders to react. The Toronto Raptors are still set as Conference favourites at +225 and are reportedly looking to make moves, but the odds board is getting crowded now. The Boston Celtics are at +260 to win the East, followed by the Milwaukee Bucks (+275), and the 76ers (+300). In the West, it’s still the Golden State Warriors as runaway favourites to make the NBA Finals at -333.
While this may not be the deepest UFC card we’ll see this year, a couple of fights are drawing interest from bettors. Veteran Anderson Silva is set as a +350 underdog when he clashes with the dynamic Israel Adesanya (-525) in Saturday’s co-main event from Melbourne, Australia. Silva may be on the backstretch of his career, but always sees solid betting support from casual bettors. Still, the sharp money is coming in on Adesanya here. In the main event, New Zealand native Robert Whittaker, who now fights out of Sydney, will put his belt on the line against Kelvin Gastelum. The challenger has predicted a first-round knockout, but it’s Whittaker who most bettors like as the -245 favourite.
