Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

There are 4 teams who have 40/1, 2.4% odds to win the Stanley Cup. While not completely impossible, their chances of winning the championship is under 0.1 percent. In simulations, they win the West 0.5% of the time and are not a good value at 20/1, 4.8%. The Canucks are averaging 84 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 88.5. At +180 the Canucks are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 26.1% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 12/1, 7.7%. They win the division in 1.3% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #11 in the West.

They were solid against the puck line going 49-33 for (+63 profit). More of their games came in under (47) than went over (31). Their next game vs the Oilers should be close.

Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.35 (includes playoff games) which ranks #22 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #23. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #20 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #24 in home games.
