And then there were four.
We have reached the Conference Finals Round of the 2023 NHL Playoffs, with only four teams left standing in the race for this year’s Stanley Cup. We will have a new champion this summer after the Colorado Avalanche were upset earlier in the postseason.
This race appears to be as wide open as ever at this point, with all four teams priced between +210 and +320 to win it all. This should make for an interesting finish to the postseason, but also opens the door for those looking to get in on the action at WynnBET.
The Carolina Hurricanes lead the way with a +210 value to win the Stanley Cup at WynnBET, but the Vegas Golden Knights are just behind them at +310. Both teams are favorites to win their respective series and reach the Stanley Cup.
In the Eastern Conference, Carolina is -135 to earn a series victory over the Florida Panthers, who are listed at +115. This is the Hurricanes’ deepest playoff run since 2019, when they lost in the conference finals. Carolina hasn’t gone further since it won the whole thing in 2006.
Meanwhile, the only other time the Panthers made the Stanley Cup Final was during their runner-up finish in 1996. They are currently priced at +310 to win the championship this summer.
As for the Western Conference Finals, Vegas is a -145 favorite to defeat the Dallas Stars (+123) in this round. The Golden Knights lost in the Stanley Cup Final in their first year back in 2018, but have yet to return since then.
The Stars lost the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, and have the longest odds at +320 to win it all for the first time since 1999.

Stanley Cup 2023 Best Bet
Vegas Golden Knights (+230)
Despite being bigger favorites to win this round, the Golden Knights are second in the Stanley Cup market. This presents some value on the youngest franchise of the final four to ultimately hoist the Cup for the first time.
If you are looking to jump in on this market now, I’m backing the Golden Knights to win it all.
