Predators Season Odds

Can the Nashville Predators give the Detroit Red Wings a run for their money this year in the Central Division? Oddsmakers have established the Predators’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 50/1.

The Preds made some significant moves this offseason, none bigger than trading defensemen Marek Zidlicky and goalie Chris Mason for cap room. General manager David Poile then went out and re-signed emerging stopper Dan Ellis, who finished with a .924 save percentage last season.

The club also re-signed center David Legwand, who had 44 points last year, as well as defensemen Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. It was quite a productive offseason for Polie and the Preds, although they did suffer a big loss when winger Alex Radulov spurred the club to play in the Russian league.

Bet Nashville Predators 2009 Stanley Cup Odds

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Predators’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 55/1. Bodog has Nashville at 50/1, while Sportsbook.com gives the Predators a 40/1 shot.

If any team was going to give the Red Wings a run in the division this year, it would be the Predators. They certainly have the defense, coaching and goal-tending situation to do so, although the loss of Radulov hurts their offense. Poile has done a nice job avoiding salary cap hell and now is not the time to bet against this club not making the postseason considering they’ve made the playoffs four straight years. The key for Nashville this year, however, is improving on their road play when they do make the postseason. They’re 0-10 on the road during the playoffs over the last four years and that must improve for this talented team to make a run at the Stanley Cup this year.
