Skinner Over 3 shots (+110) (2u)

And since we are nearly at the three-quarter mark, here is where the best value lies in futures heading into the home stretch. I'm not making any official plays on these, but here's what I'd be looking at based on the analytics.

All divisional odds are from Bodog.

Atlantic Division

Red Wings or Lightning at +225 are both better options than the Canadiens at +125.

Metropolitan Division

Penguins and Islanders are both at +150, but the Pens should the clear edge down the stretch.

Central Division

The Blues are a decent bet at +150 to finish ahead of the Predators who sit at +100.

All cup and conference odds are from 5Dimes.

Stanley Cup 

Among the favorites, the Penguins currently hold the best value at +1300. The Red Wings are still flying under the radar and can be had for +1350. While the Islanders are good, they should not be the favorite to come out of the East at +690.

The best dark horse in the East are the Caps, and they have value at +2600. In the West, the best dark horse are the Jets at +4500.

Western Conference

The Blues hold the best value to win the West at +490.

Eastern Conference

This is a coin flip, with any number of teams winning the East.. If there was one team that had some value, it would be the Red Wings at +650, but given how close the top teams are in the East, you're not really getting enough value to pull the trigger.
