Top Pick to Win the 2025 Stanley Cup Final

Even though the Edmonton Oilers lost the title, Connor McDavid won the trophy for the series’ best player. McDavid dominated the Panthers in a 2-game stretch that almost led to one of the most remarkable comebacks in Stanley Cup history.

The issue Edmonton had in this year’s final series was one of pace. By the time Game 7 happened, the Oilers had been spent by first losing 3 straight and then winning 2 straight. McDavid’s teammates will handle the rigors of a Stanley Cup series much better in 2025 than they did in 2024. Expect Edmonton to lift Lord Stanley’s goblet at the end of the season.

Second Pick to Win the 2025 Stanley Cup Final

The New York Rangers have made it to the Eastern Conference Finals in two of the last three seasons. This year, nobody was going to beat determined Florida in the East. So the Rangers losing the conference series makes sense.

Next season, NYR will be ready to beat the Panthers, or anyone else, who gets in their way. Pressure is on Alexis LaFreniere and Igor Shesterkin to get it done because both are at the tail end of their contracts. The Rangers will pony up money for both, but both must perform.

As always, Artemi Panarin will do his part. So if LaFreniere and Shesterkin can roll in the playoffs, the Rangers could upset the Panthers and finally make it to the Stanley Cup.

Third Pick to Win the 2025 Stanley Cup Final

Dallas had to fight too hard in the first two rounds, which is why they fell to the Oilers in the Western Conference Finals. It wasn’t fair to the Stars, who beat Vegas in a 7-game series and then dispatched of Cup favorite Colorado in 6 games.

By the time the Stars took on McDavid, Leo Draisatl and the rest of the Oilers, they were gassed. Even though they were tired, Dallas fought hard. A better draw could lead to a Stars victory. But the odds are somewhat light because overall, the West is deeper than the East.

Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2025 Stanley Cup Final

The Pacific Division winners will once again be loaded. The Vancouver Canucks boasts three top players in J.T. Miller, Quinn Hughes, and Brock Boeser.

All three stepped it up this season. The underdog Canucks played great during the regular season but struggled in the playoffs. Every season is a learning event, which is why Vancouver should improve in next year’s playoffs. If they do so, the Canucks might be the team to back to get it done. Bet Vancouver now if you believe because the odds won’t be close to +2500 once the sharps take a look.
