Edmonton Oilers Odds to Win the Stanley Cup Championship
Click here for the current Edmonton Oilers Schedule
This could be the year that the Edmonton Oilers take the big step forward thanks to their pool of incredible young talent. Of course, I’ve said the same thing the last two seasons, and the team has continued to underwhelm. New coach Dallas Eakins needs to make the team mentally tougher and far less prone to lapses of effort or focus. Oddsmakers are surprisingly optimistic about this team — at Bovada they are 20/1 to win the Stanley Cup as of August 15. Keep checking below for the latest odds, too, because that number could change as the public jumps on board. The team has made some good moves to improve the play on the ice — jettisoning Shawn Horcoff, adding veteran Andrew Ference and bringing Denis Grebeshkov back from Russia to improve the defensive depth and trading away underachieving Magnus Paajarvi to the Blues for David Perron in a steal of a deal. If the team doesn’t take a big step forward this year, then it is really time to question whether they ever will.
