2014 Western Conference Betting Odds

The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup last season and while they have the lowest odds to win the Western Conference this season there are several great teams out West. Let's take a look at the contenders with their future lines listed from Bovada.

All stats and standings are as of January 20th.

Chicago Blackhawks Odds: +240

The Blackhawks have the 2nd most points in the NHL and they have the league’s highest scoring offense. Patrick Kane has the 4th most points in the league and Patrick Sharp has the league’s 5th most goals. Chicago has the offense, but their defense only ranks 15th in the league and that is a concern.

Anaheim Ducks Odds: +250

The Ducks have the most points in the league and after 22 games they have still yet to lose at home. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry rank in the top 5 in goals per game and lead an offense that ranks 3rd in the NHL. On defense they are also solid ranking 8th in opponents’ goals per game.

St Louis Blues Odds: +300

The Blues are solid on both sides of the ice and have a good road record as well as a solid home one. St. Louis ranks 2nd in the NHL in goals per game and 3rd in opponents’ goals per game. They have a balanced offense that only has 1 player in the top 10 in goals and none in the top 10 in points.

Los Angeles Kings Odds: +600

The Kings have the league’s best defense and a couple of top-notch goalies, but can L.A. win the West with an offense that only ranks 23rd in the league in goals per game?

San Jose Sharks Odds: +600

The Sharks rank 5th in both goals per game and opponents’ goals per game and they sit in 2nd place in the Pacific Division. They have not been the best road team this season and while their defensive unit is good G Antti Niemi has struggled at time and only rank 27th in the league in save percentage.

Colorado Avalanche Odds: +1200

Colorado is in 3rd place in the Central Division and they have been playing great as of late going 8-1-1 in their last 10 games. Their offense is the strength of the team ranking 6th in the league in goals per game. The Avalanche have a solid defense ranking 13th in the league and on offense they play as a team with no Colorado player that ranks in the top 20 in the league in points or goals.

Vancouver Canucks Odds: +1500

Vancouver is in the playoff mix, but can they make any noise in the post-season? The Canucks have a good defense ranking 11th in the league, but they only rank 20th in scoring. They have slipped a bit as of late with only 2 wins in their last 10 games.
