NHL Futures Odds

NHL Odds & Futures

An NHL "futures" bet is a bet on an event that will be determined in the future--beyond just the current day or week. Often, futures center around end-of-season results like betting on a team to win the Stanley Cup. If the selected team or players wins the event on which the bet was placed, the bettor wins their bet.

Futures odds are associated with big payouts, hence greater-scale-than-normal odds like +6000 are not unheard of. It is hard to win the Stanley Cup and difficult to predict early in a season. Even the best teams, or "most likely" outcomes, will be plus-money far off from the event date. Futures are available across the season for conference and division outcomes, individual player awards, and more.

Betting on NHL Futures

After a long season and the NHL Playoffs eliminate teams from 16 to two for the Stanley Cup Finals, oddsmakers will set American Odds on the championship match-up. At this point, these are no longer future odds -- the main event is near! For an event this major, the odds have a name: the Stanley Cup Finals Odds Series Price, using American Odds.

  • Lightning logo Tampa Bay Lightning -140 (Bet $100; win $40 on the Lightning)
  • Canadiens logoMontreal Canadiens +200 (Bet $100; win $200 on the Canadiens)

For additional resources, check out our betting calculators and our guide to betting on hockey. But here are the fast facts on odd types and how to bet on the NBA Finals.

What are American Odds?

American Odds are the default odds at U.S. sportsbooks. The odds are based on winning $100 for a given bet on either the Favorite or the Underdog.  A Favorite will have a minus (-) sign next to the odds and represents the money you need to risk to win $100. An Underdog will have a plus (+) sign in front and represents the money you can win for every $100 risked. So, if you're betting on the Lightning at -140 against the Canadiens, that means Tampa Bay is a slight favorite. You need to risk $140 to win $100 on the Canadiens. If they win, you profit $100 and get your original $140 back.

What are Decimal Odds?

Beyond the U.S., most of the world uses Decimal Odds, in part because it’s easier to convert them to implied probabilities. Decimal odds represent the amount you win for every $1 wagered. And the number represents the total return, not just the profit (this is different from American and fractional odds).

 What are Fractional Odds?

Fractional Odds are used primarily in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Few bettors use fractional odds for betting sports other than horse racing, because the conversions to understand return are challenging. To calculate winnings on fractional odds, multiply your bet by the top number (the numerator), then divide the result by the bottom number (the denominator).
