The NHL playoff field is set, complete with first-round matchups. In turn, we officially have series prices, along with a plethora of other markets to bet.

The Western Conference is more chalky, while the East notably features three openers that could go either way.

Here's how all eight stack up with the regular season essentially all but through.

Western Conference Series Betting Odds

Avalanche (-450) vs. Predators (+360)

The Avalanche are the Cup favorites across the board, ranging anywhere from +320 to +350 (you can check and shop futures odds here).

Colorado did however falter a bit down the stretch, dropping six of seven with five of those losses in regulation.

Flames (-260) vs. Stars (+210)

It took a bit for Calgary to get going out the gates, but the Flames wound up leading the Pacific with 111 points.

Calgary's defense has been lights-out in 2021-22, ranking top-six in goals against, shots against and penalty kill.

Oilers (-250) vs. Kings (+200)

The Kings were the third-most profitable team in hockey during the regular season, netting bettors wagering $100 on every L.A. moneyline close to $700.

The Oilers, however, have nabbed three straight in the overall series.

Wild (-150) vs. Blues (+130)

Only the Panthers ($902) won bettors more money at home than the Wild (901$), by a matter of mere cents.

The Blues took all three contests during the regular season, lighting the lamp a whopping 16 times.

Eastern Conference Series Betting Odds

Panthers (-290) vs. Capitals (+225)

Florida's the clear-cut team to beat in the East. The Panthers are as low as +500 to win the Stanley Cup, but can be grabbed at +550 ahead of the postseason at multiple shops.

Lightning (-120) vs. Maple Leafs (+100)

Tampa Bay goes for three straight titles, beginning with an opening-round tilt versus a red-hot offense.

The Maple Leafs — led by 60-goal scorer Auston Matthews — are third in goals per game and first in both faceoff win percentage and power play success rate.

Penguins (-115) vs. Rangers (-105)

The Penguins offense scuffled versus New York during the regular season, going 1-3 and posting just four total goals against the division rival.

The Rangers were far and away the best bet in the NHL, winning $100 bettors north of $1,200.

Hurricanes (-115) vs. Bruins (-105)

Two solid Eastern Conference clubs meet in another toss-up in Carolina-Boston.

Both teams comfortably sailed over 100 points during the regular season. Carolina, at +1200 in the futures odds, led the Metro with 116.
