Preseason Over/Unders and Stanley Cup Odds Added to Hockey Reference

Posted by Alex Bonilla on July 18, 2019

Hockey Reference has added preseason Stanley Cup odds back to 1985 and over/unders on point totals back to 2011. Looking at the 2018-19 preseason, the eventual champion St. Louis Blues had +3000 odds to win the Stanley Cup, 10th-best in the league. The New York Islanders were tied for 2nd-longest odds to win the Stanley Cup at +20000, and would go on to make the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Islanders finished the regular season with 103 points, safely exceeding their preseason over/under set at 82.5.

We again thank for providing us with the historical data for this addition, as well as similar preseason odds additions on Basketball Reference, Pro Football Reference, and our college sites. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us through our feedback form.

    Is it just me, or are the Washington Capitals missing from each season (First was curious about their own odds last season, then kept checking others)? Interesting addition to the site in general, though!
