NHL 2021: Avalanche, Lightning top Stanley Cup odds for the season



The puck is hours away from dropping on the 2021 NHL season. It’ll be a sprint to the playoffs as the 31 NHL teams are set to play 56 games over the course of the next 116 nights.

The defending champion Lightning are expected to make a big run once again, with preseason odds billing them as the top team in the new Central Division. They also hold the second-best odds to win the Cup. The No. 1 team? The Colorado Avalanche. Led by captain Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and head coach Jared Bednar, the Avalanche are poised for big things in 2021.
