NHL future bets on the 2017 Stanley Cup winner are up here at RealBet and now is a great time to be looking for offside value. After an unbelievable hockey season in which the Pittsburgh Penguins won their fourth Stanley Cup, we are only just over three months away from the start of preseason.
With lots of moves yet to come, shopping for winning future bets is the way to make solid profit down the road. You’ll notice the usual suspects up top, some value in the middle, and longest of longshots at the bottom. No doubt there will be some significant changes prior to the start of the 2016/2017 season, but we can only control the moment and take advantage of opportunity when we see it. That is the fun of future bets!
NHL Future Bets – 2017 Stanley Cup Champion Picks
The Washington Capitals at +750 are the odds on favorites (along with the Chicago Blackhawks) to win the Stanley Cup in 2017, and will have back most of the same team that tore through the 2015/2016 season before losing to Pittsburgh. They’re as deep as any team in the league and are loaded with star power both up front and in goal.
The Penguins, perhaps surprisingly, trail Washington with +800 odds. They were dominant in the second half of the season and should bring back the same roster next year. Be wary though – not since the Detroit Red Wings in 1996/1997 – 1997/1998 has a team won back-to-back Stanley Cups.

The Dallas Stars are at +900 which is pretty fair for a team that did not have Tyler Seguin when it counted most. The Stars led the league in total offense last year and will have back the same roster. If they can upgrade their goaltending then +900 might be a great deal.
Tampa Bay at +1600 is an interesting possible bet since they’re consistently one of the best teams in the East year in and year out. However, the looming Steven Stamkos free agency is a big wildcard and could impact their odds so tread carefully here.
NHL Future Bets – 2017 Stanley Cup Winner
Speaking of division winners, the Florida Panthers are at +3000 after winning the Atlantic Division. They have a young core, a good goalie, and an emerging star on the blueline with Aaron Ekblad. Of all the value bets, this one sticks out. Remember, you can always hedge a great bet down the road.
Of all the longshots, none seem likely to win the Cup but a few could make the playoffs. The Edmonton Oilers, the Buffalo Sabres, and the Columbus Blue Jackets all have the potential to sneak into the playoffs after years of missing out- but asking them to win 16 more games after that could be a stretch.
