The Stanley Cup Final begins Saturday night, with the Vegas Golden Knights hosting the Florida Panthers. Everyone loves betting on marquee sporting events, and there's nothing bigger in hockey than the Stanley Cup Final. The bet365 bonus code TOPACTION allows new customers to earn up to $200.
A new user only needs to bet $1 to earn $200 in bonus bets. The only other requirements are a $10 deposit, and the first bet must be on a prop with -500 odds or longer.

The Panthers and Golden Knights head into the Stanley Cup looking for their first championship in franchise history. Which team will hoist the Cup?
Bonus bets don't have the same value as cash in your account. You will never keep a bonus bet, regardless of the outcome of your bet. That's different from a standard bet that allows you to keep your stake if you win. A plus-money prop is the best way to use your bonus bet.
Betting on the Stanley Cup Final at bet365
The 2023 Stanley Cup Final will see one franchise capture its first championship in franchise history. Vegas is only in its sixth season, but the Panthers have been in the NHL for nearly 30 years. This is their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since being swept by the Avalanche in 1996.
Florida is a rare playoff team that saw their odds worsen throughout the season. They were +900 in October, but a disappointing regular season saw their Stanley Cup odds reach +6600 on April 1. Since then, a magical playoff run has them in a position to win it all.
The Golden Knights' run wasn't as surprising as they've been a top team all season. They enter the Stanley Cup Final as a -130 favorite. However, they were -153 to win the 2018 Stanley Cup before losing to the Washington Capitals in five games. Can they avoid a similar fate?
The Action Network NHL public betting page shows that 57% of bets are on the Golden Knights to win Game 1, with the over taking 70% of bets. That's not a bad angle to target for your first bet, but we need more value for a bonus bet.
Our staff has accumulated a list of the best bets for the Stanley Cup Final. Tony Sartori likes Jonathan Marchessault to lead the series in goals (+750).
After a quiet opening series against the Winnipeg Jets, Marchessault has exploded over the past two rounds, potting nine goals over the past 10 games. Obviously, that puts him in front of any other skater from either team over that span in the goal-scoring department.
One of the more underrated pure goal scorers in the NHL, Marchessault has hovered around the 30-goal mark in each of the past seven seasons. With a relentless tenacity to shoot the puck and find high-danger scoring chances, he has recorded an average of 3.9 shots on goal per contest over the recent 10-game hot streak, and he leads the Knights in expected goals per 60 minutes (xGF/60) at five-on-five this postseason.
The Barbeshev-Eichel-Marchessault line has been – by far – the most dominating line for Vegas this postseason, with all due respect to the fourth line (Carrier-Roy-Kolesar) that has played extremely well in its own right. That aforementioned first line has generated an xGoals% of 60.5% this postseason, producing an excellent 3.45 xGF/60.
Eichel has served as the primary playmaker and facilitator on this line, logging 12 assists over 17 games. Meanwhile, Barbashev does a lot of the dirty work by getting in net-front and screening the goalie or cleaning up the garbage. That leaves Marchessault, who is the primary triggerman and will get more than his fair share of chances to bury the puck.
The biggest concern in backing this prop is Sergei Bobrovsky, but Florida is not going to have an easy time either going against a better Vegas blue line and a hot Adin Hill. Goals will likely be difficult to come by in either direction, but in my opinion, the most likely individual to break through in the goal-scoring department is Marchessault.
Let's say we use a $100 bonus bet on this prop. A winning bet means we score $750 in winnings, but a losing bet means we walk away with nothing.
