Here’s who has the best Stanley Cup odds this American Thanksgiving Day

The Colorado Avalanche is still the team to beat.

The defending champions remain the favorite to win the Stanley Cup for the second straight season, according to Stake.com, heading into the US Thanksgiving Day mile mark.

The Avalanche, who won their third Stanley Cup this past June after defeating the two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning, remains the favorite at +470, meaning a single $100 bet will return a $570 win should the Avalanche repeat. The streak marked a slight dip for Colorado, who entered the season as a +410 candidate.

However, the Cale Makar-led franchise remains the team to beat.

However, the Avalanche ranks 12th in the NHL standings with a mark of 11-6-1 – behind the likes of the Vegas Golden Knights, Dallas Stars, Seattle Kraken, and Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference.

The Boston Bruins, who hold the top spot in the NHL standings with 34 points via a 17-3-0 record, are second only to Colorado in +670. Vegas, just behind Boston with 33 points, is third with a score of +685. The Bruins entered the season with a top 13 odd at +2,490, with the Golden Knights ranked eighth at +1,640.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, who are fifth overall in the standings at American Thanksgiving, remain Canada’s best chance of lifting the Stanley Cup north at +1,220. It’s a slight dip for the Maple Leafs, who entered the campaign with the second best odds overall in the preseason ratings at +820.

The Calgary Flames are Canada’s second-best option behind the Leafs at +1,490, with the Edmonton Oilers a little behind at +1,840. The Flames are fourth in the Pacific Rim with 21 points, one point ahead of the fifth-place Oilers.

The Vancouver Canucks, who are sixth with 17 points, have stumbled sharply in the charts. Vancouver is ranked 18th in the preseason tables with a +4,400 mark. They now have the eighth longest odds at the +11,900 mark, which means a $100 bet will return a $12,000 payout.

The Montreal Canadiens, who had a +12,900 streak in late September, share the same odds as the Canucks. The Canadiens are the last Canadian team to win the Cup, doing so exactly 30 years ago.
