Varying levels of historical success makes the Central Division diverse. Recently acquiring the status of dynasty, after winning three Stanley Cups in five years, the Chicago Blackhawks are the division’s oldest and most successful team. Four of the teams have yet to have their names engraved on Lord Stanley’s Cup, but each and every season it seems like the majority of them have a shot at glory.  

The Chicago Blackhawks were not always the team to beat in the Central Division. Before the realignment, the Colorado Avalanche – championed by Hall of Famer Joe Sakic – were a force to be reckoned with, capturing two Stanley Cups and making the hockey relevant in the Mile High City. The Dallas Stars even captured a Cup in 1999 and the St. Louis Blues were a constant contender when they were led by Brett Hull in the nineties. The Winnipeg Jets, Nashville Predators and Minnesota Wild are three of the NHL’s newest franchises but they have shown in their brief histories that they are committed to building a team capable of winning it all.

The Central Division is known for talented and competitive teams top to bottom, making the underdog an attractive option on any given. Following the standings and keeping track of streaking teams and players can help turn those attractive underdog picks into smart, money making bets. As the playoff race in the Central is almost always tight, make sure to check the standings frequently as puck lines in the central often offer the best odds out there.
