Understanding Conn Smythe Trophy odds
Sportsbooks will post Conn Smythe Trophy odds as early as the beginning of the playoffs. These NHL futures are constantly adjusted throughout the postseason depending on how well players perform as well as their team success. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NHL awards odds based on handle and liability to certain players.
Conn Smythe Trophy odds will usually look like this:
- Nathan MacKinnon +325
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $325 if MacKinnon takes home the Conn Smythe Trophy. If it's close to the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs and a player has stood out as the obvious MVP of the series they might have a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds like this:
- Nikita Kucherov -175
This means that if you bet on Kucherov to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, you would have needed to bet $175 to profit $100.
