2024 Stanley Cup Champion Odds: Bettors Hammering the Panthers To Beat Oilers In Stanley Cup Final

The 2024 Stanley Cup Finals are set between the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers. Both teams fell into a 2-1 deficit during the Conference Finals but managed to rally and close out their opponent in Game 6 at home.

There's a lot of talent and superstar names on both rosters. Matthew Tkachuk and Connor McDavid lead the pack, while Stuart Skinner's elevated play in the goal for Edmonton allowed the Oilers to win Game 6 against Dallas despite being outshot 35-10.

NHL handicapper Matt MacKay is here to provide a look at the latest Stanley Cup Champion odds in the NHL futures market. Plus, fresh betting data for which team bettors are gravitating toward ahead of Game 1 in the 2024 Stanley Cup Finals.


Florida Panthers-130
Edmonton Oilers+110

Oddsmakers are valuing the Florida Panthers as marginal favorites to win the Stanley Cup Finals over the Edmonton Oilers. Florida won the Eastern Conference for the second time in a row but got routed 4-1 by the Vegas Golden Knights during the 2023 Stanley Cup Finals.

The experience and motivation from Florida gives them a slight edge compared to Edmonton, who haven't made it to the Stanley Cup Finals since losing in Game 7 to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. The Oilers haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1990 and have experienced a lot of success since making a coaching change in November.



PANTHERS (63.7%)

Bettors are hammering the Florida Panthers to win the 2024 Stanley Cup Finals over Edmonton. The Panthers are loaded with depth on all four lines, starting with Tkachuk, Sam Reinhart, and Aleksander Barkov, plus, they have Sergei Bobrovsky in the crease.

Bobrovsky was a huge factor in the Panthers advancing the 2023 Stanley Cup Finals, but he fell apart against Vegas' offense. He's been just as good in 2024 but the pressure and number of shots faced have gone down dramatically, so Bobrovsky should be well-rested ahead of his biggest challenge this postseason, which is preparing for Edmonton's historically good powerplay.

OILERS (36.3%)

Edmonton is garnering just over 36 percent of the betting handle in the NHL Stanley Cup Champion futures market. Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Zach Hyman, and Evan Bouchard are the focal point of the Oilers' offense.

Meanwhile, Stuart Skinner's ascension from being the worst goaltender in the playoffs to arguably one of the best, has helped spur his confidence and get Edmonton to their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 18 years. The value is certainly on the Oilers to win this series at +110 odds.

However, Florida won both matchups in the regular season by at least two goals, including a 5-1 rout on the road at Edmonton. It's going to be an uphill battle for the Oilers to overcome the relentless physicality, talent, and experience that the Panthers are bringing into this Stanley Cup Finals series.
