NHL Playoffs 2020: Series Betting Odds For All Eight First-Round Matchups

The NHL is back!

August 1 will mark the official return of hockey and the beginning of what should be a frenetic 24-team playoff that will conclude no later than October 4 (hopefully) with the Stanley Cup Finals.

In what bodes well for hockey fans and sports bettors alike, the NHL is not sequestered in a state currently overrun by the COVID-19 virus (though it should be noted that 43 players have tested positive for the virus since June 8).

The NHL instead will take their “bubble” to Canada. The Western Conference will begin play out at Rogers Place in Edmonton, while the Eastern Conference will play their games in Toronto at the ScotiaBank Arena.

The 24-team field will be whittled down to the traditional 16-team bracket following the conclusion of the qualifying rounds in each respective conference.

Here’s a look at the current odds for each first-round playoff series.
