Betting on Canucks Hockey


If nothing else, Canadians will have something to fight about this Saturday as the Vancouver Canucks play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs on the NHL betting line. More than just a transnational rivalry, however, the matchup also serves as a legitimate measuring stick for the currently playoff-bound Leafs.

Is a postseason berth in the cards for a Toronto team that hasn’t played spring hockey since before the lockout? According to Bovada’s NHL odds makers, they have just 28/1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup.


Still, although the Leafs may sit in a weight class with the New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers, they’re ahead of Northeast rivals in both the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators.


With a victory over the Canucks, could the Leafs prove themselves capable of upstaging a contender if given the opportunity? Vancouver has league-best 6/1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup. Saturday, for Maple Leafs fans at least, is Judgment Day.


Given the amount of commotion and uncertainty in the Eastern Conference, there are few guarantees as to who might make the final cut in the bracket. Though Vancouver’s place is all but sealed out West, it’s games like this one where postseason tickets are won and lost.
