Hart Trophy Odds

Auston Matthews+180
Connor McDavid+275
Igor Shesterkin+450
Johnny Gaudreau+900
Jonathan Huberdeau+1000
Leon Draisaitl+1400

Auston Matthews (+180) (Bet $100 to win $180)

Auston Matthews is a goal scoring machine for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He leads the league with 50 goals and has 87 points to his name in just 62 games, For the third year in a row, he is the league leader of even strength goals.

He finished second in the Hart last year while winning the Rocket Richard but this year, he's the favorite to win the elusive Hart Trophy. Still, at just 24 years old, his play is scary good for Toronto.

Matthews is on pace for 62 goals on the year. The last player to touch 60 goals in a season was Steven Stamkos in 2012 and it's only twice since the year 2000. He isn't a lock though, because the best player in the sport, Connor McDavid, is also a legit threat for this award.

Connor McDavid (+275) (Bet $100 to win $275)

Connor McDavid has already clinched a 100 point season. With 39 goals and 63 assists, he has 102 points in 68 games. At 1.5 points per game he is pacing out to a 122 point season. For context, the last player to hit 120 points in a season was Sidney Crosby in 2007. So while Auston Matthews is scoring at an insane clip, we also can't sleep on Connor McDavid's season.

Since the 2016-2017 season, McDavid has been the league leader four out of the six seasons. He won the Hart last year and has finished top-five each of the past five seasons and it's a lock that he will finish towards the top again.

This is a two-man race, and honestly, it's too close to call. Flip a coin and hope for the best on this one, it's a toss-up.
