Best NHL Western Conference Betting Sites

The National Hockey League likes to talk up parity, and certainly when you look at the Western Conference, the case for parity is easily made. From top to bottom, the NHL’s Western Conference is stacked with talented, capable teams. In recent seasons, the San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators both made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup final and even the newest kids on the block, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, added in 2017-18 as an expansion franchise, are no pushover. [+]

The depth of talented teams within the Western Conference is evident in the teams that have won the Stanley Cup during the past decade. They run the gauntlet from Presidents’ Trophy winners (the 2012-13 Chicago Blackhawks) to teams that barely slipped into postseason play as a No. 8 seed (the 2011-12 Los Angeles Kings).

How To Win At Western Conference Betting

The NHL’s Western Conference has produced a couple of teams that could make their case for what could be termed a dynasty during the NHL’s salary cap era. The Chicago Blackhawks won three Stanley Cups between 2010-15 (2009-10, 2012-13, 2014-15) and the Los Angeles Kings won a pair of Cups between 2011-12 and 2013-14.

When they were still situated in the Western Conference, the Detroit Red Wings were the last team to win back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 1996-97 and 1997-98.

For the most part, you should expect close, low-scoring games when Western Conference teams meet. Several of the NHL’s top best defensive teams reside in the West.

That being said, you can also find a variety of hockey styles prevalent in the Western Conference. The Chicago Blackhawks, Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars are teams capable of scoring goals by the bushel full. The Nashville Predators and Calgary Flames, though, are clubs built more around the strategy of playing solid defense first and foremost.

The Western Conference is also loaded with some of the NHL’s top scorers, from Edmonton’s Connor McDavid to Chicago’s Patrick Kane, as well as San Jose’s Joe Pavelski and Vladimir Tarasenko of the St. Louis Blues.
