The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Nashville Predators 2-0 in Game 6 to win the 2017 Stanley Cup. The Pens are the early favorites to win the 2018 Stanley Cup.

Pittsburgh is listed at +850 (5Dimes) and +900 (BetOnline) to three-peat. Five teams have won back-to-back-to-back titles but none since the Islanders in 1983.

The Edmonton Oilers and Washington Capitals are both listed at +1000 on each site and should contend next season. Though there are rumors that the Caps might trade superstar Alex Ovechkin, which would dramatically change the odds for Washington.

The Predators made a surprise run to the Stanley Cup this season. Before the year began Nashville was listed +2850, after winning the Western Conference the team is +1400 at BetOnline to win the championship in 2018.

The biggest difference between the oddsmakers is with the NHL’s newest team. 5Dimes lists the Las Vegas Golden Knights at +15000 while BetOnline has them at +20000. Both sites agree that the expansion team is the biggest longshot.
