American Thanksgiving, AKA the unofficial quarterpole of the NHL season, is almost here which means we can start forming meaningful opinions about the league.

The latest: The Vegas Golden Knights won it all last year and are the favourites to do it again. The Tampa Bay Lightning are our best value pick, while the Detroit Red Wings are an intriguing dart throw.

Best odds to win the Stanley Cup

The defending champs are looking as strong as ever.

Vegas boasts an impressive 12-3-1 record, as of Nov. 15, thanks to stellar play in its own zone. The Golden Knights rank third in goals against per game (2.19) and second in save percentage (.933).

Their well-balanced offensive attack is giving opponents fits on most nights, too, as the team is inside the top 10 in goals per game.

Vegas continues to receive key contributions from all over the lineup, with five different players having already hit double-digit points

The Lightning are off to an OK start but help is on the way.

Tampa Bay is 6-6-4 thus far but bettors should be mostly concerned with the offensive results, and those have been encouraging.

Keeping the puck out of its own net has been a bit of a concern but the pending return of Andrei Vasilevskiy will help. The talented netminder is practicing after undergoing back surgery.

At 50-to-1, you can do a lot worse than Detroit.

The Red Wings are currently holding down a playoff with an 8-5-2 record.

Years of picking near the top of the draft are starting to pay off, and so is the addition of Alex DeBrincat. His 10 goals lead the team and are a big reason why the Red Wings are tied for fourth in goals per game (3.67).

The Canadian teams

Canada's Stanley Cup drought is up to 30 years after no team north of the border advanced past the semifinals in 2022-23. There's plenty of Canadian content at the top of the odds leaderboard, however, giving hope that maybe 2024 is the year.

TeamOdds (Nov. 14)Preseason odds

  • The Oilers fired head coach Jay Woodcroft just 13 games into the season after they went 3-9-1. Kris Knoblauch is the squad's new head coach and he earned his first NHL win in a 4-1 victory over the Islanders.
