The Devils might be a longshot bet for the Stanley Cup but there are plenty of other options for Devils’ fans looking for shorter odds on NHL futures.

The New Jersey Devils have been playing solid if unspectacular hockey, currently tied for the lowest point total in the East Division, with a record of 4-3-2. They certainly haven’t looked like a Stanley Cup contender but at 80/1 odds, an underdog run to a championship would pay out handsomely for any Devils’ fan brave enough to bet it.

If you’re looking for a safer bet the Las Vegas Golden Knights and Tampa Bay Lightning currently hold the best odds of winning the Stanley Cup, at 13/2 and 7/1, respectively. If you’re looking for a place to lay those bets, bet365 is a great way to get in on the action and right now they’re offering up to $500 in Bet Credits to new customers from New Jersey*. Sign up and check out all the different NHL betting options.

If you’re focused on the Devils, maybe stay from big season-long bets and get in on props or money line bets for individual Devils’ games. New Jersey has the New York Rangers up next on the schedule and the money line is at 6/5. Or check out the over/under, which is currently 5.5.

Whatever feels like the winning play to you, bet365 has you covered. And, remember, join now and claim up to $500 in Bet Credits! bet365 will also be Live Streaming selected games from the NHL throughout the season. See website for more details**.
