Odds on Every NHL Team to Make or Miss the Playoffs

After months of waiting, the NHL is finally back on October 3. If it comes to projecting which teams have the best (or worst) opportunities to create or miss the playoffs in the 2018-19 season, bettors searching for value will find no shortage of it in one sportsbook.
BetOnline has released odds on all 31 NHL teams to make or miss the postseason from the spring. On the board, the Toronto Maple Leafs (-800), Tampa Bay Lightning (-800), Winnipeg Jets (-625), Pittsburgh Penguins (-550), Boston Bruins (-500) and Nashville Predators (-500) have the greatest chances to arise in the promised land.
The clubs with the worst possibility to produce the playoffs are the Ottawa Senators (+900), Vancouver Canucks (+850), Detroit Red Wings (+525), New York Rangers (+425), Montreal Canadiens (+325), New York Islanders (+300) and Buffalo Sabres (+275).
Top stakes to make the playoffs
While it’s looking like a lock for groups like the Maple Leafs and Lightning to make it, you won’t find any value in their existing prices. That is why the teams available in plus-money to make the playoffs I like would be the Colorado Avalanche (+150) and New Jersey Devils (+110).
The Avs and Devils created sudden playoff appearances a year before, and oddsmakers are definitely expecting a regression heading forward. But both squads look as they’re prepared to advance back for the next year in a row and are moving in the right direction, therefore a bet on them in the present price looks like a good bet to me.
Top bets to miss the playoffs
Sportsbooks and I’m differing on our opinions concerning the postseason hopes of two teams: the Columbus Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars. The Blue Jackets, who are +240 to miss the playoffs, have been in for a disappointing year in my eyes. With soon-to-be unrestricted free agents Artemi Panarin and franchise goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky set to hit the open marketplace, I have a sense the Jackets may manage one (or both) at the trade deadline if they are struggling.
The Stars are loaded with top-end talent but are lacking depth up front, and I am not sure they have what it takes to be a playoff team. At +135 to neglect to make the postseason, the price is right.
