October is a sports fan’s Christmas morning. It features the MLB playoffs, NFL and NCAA regular seasons, NBA tip-off — and the return of the NHL, which after two games overseas began its full schedule Tuesday night.

The Colorado Avalanche have had a few months to enjoy an entire offseason as champions. Now, it’s officially time to begin the pursuit of the 2023 Stanley Cup.

Let’s take a look at some of the interesting betting lines for the upcoming NHL season. Caesars Sportsbook has all of the odds for the 2023 campaign, including Stanley Cup futures, as well as playoff and point total odds.

Stanley Cup futures

It should come as no surprise that Colorado (+400) is the overwhelming favorite to repeat as Stanley Cup champion. The Avs aren’t building for the future; they’re ready to win right now, and oddsmakers favor them to do just that.

The Toronto Maple Leafs (+900) — who had a disappointing playoff run last season — have the second-best odds to take home the Stanley Cup. Coming in right behind Toronto at +1000 odds are two of the best regular-season teams from 2022, the Carolina Hurricanes and Eastern Conference finalists, the New York Rangers.

The Stanley Cup runner-up last season, the Tampa Bay Lightning, has the fifth-best odds (+1200) to lift the cup for the third time in four years. Here are the complete 2023 Stanley Cup odds at Caesars Sportsbook:

Colorado Avalanche (+400)

Toronto Maple Leafs (+900)

Carolina Hurricanes (+1000)

Playoff odds

In the Eastern Conference, the Maple Leafs (+190) and Hurricanes (+200) are the favorites to win the Atlantic and Metropolitan divisions. Last year’s Atlantic Division winners, the Florida Panthers, are right behind Toronto at +250. Carolina won the Metropolitan Division in 2022.

In the Western Conference, the Avs are the runaway favorites in the Central Division at -160. Colorado is the only predicted division winner that doesn’t come with plus juice. The favorite to win the Pacific Division is the 2022 runner-up Edmonton Oilers at +210, followed by the defending division champion Calgary Flames (+260).
