Coyotes have the highest Stanley Cup odds among Arizona sportsbooks in NHL history.

Coyotes Face Longest Arizona Sportsbook Stanley Cup Odds in NHL
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Based on NHL betting in Arizona, the likelihood of the Coyotes making it to the franchise’s first Stanley Cup playoffs in three years in 2023 is very low.

Following the first round of the 2022 NHL Draft on Thursday, two prominent Arizona sportsbooks have placed the franchise at the lowest position on their Stanley Cup odds board.

Arizona has added three promising prospects to their roster: center Logan Cooley, who was the third overall pick, Conor Geekie selected at number 11, and Maveric Lamoureux drafted 29th overall.

This season, Cooley had an impressive 27 goals and 48 assists while playing for the U.S. National Development Program. It is expected that he will play at least one season at the University of Minnesota before joining the Valley in 2023.

Geekie, a center for the Winnipeg Ice in the WHL, scored 24 goals and contributed 46 assists last year.

Lamoureux, a 6’7″ defenseman from Hawkesbury, Ontario, rounded out the team’s first round picks. During the current season, he recorded 20 assists in 54 games while suiting up for the Drummondville Voltigeurs in the Quebec Major Juniors Hockey League.

All three players, as well as former Edmonton Oilers forward Zack Kassian, have joined the Coyotes organization in an effort to make a comeback and qualify for the postseason, a feat they have not achieved since the 2019-20 season.

Coyotes have the worst odds in the NHL.

According to both BetMGM and Caesars Sportsbook Arizona, Arizona is ranked lowest for Stanley Cup and Western Conference championship futures.

The Coyotes are the least likely team to win the championship in 2023 on BetMGM Arizona, with odds of +50000, which are more than three times higher than the second least likely team, Montreal, with odds of +15000.

The Coyotes have a slim chance of winning their first Western Conference title since moving to Phoenix in 1996, with odds listed at +15000.

Although Arizona trails Seattle by a considerable margin on BetMGM’s Western Conference odds board, history has proven that anything is possible in sports.

Caesars Sportsbook Arizona has the Coyotes at odds of +30000 to win the Stanley Cup and +15000 to win the Western Conference in 2023.

In 2022-23, Arizona will have a new home.

In early June, the Coyotes announced a partnership with the city of Tempe for an arena development project.

Arizona’s 19-year run at Gila River Arena in Glendale came to a close this season as the Coyotes made the move to Arizona State University’s new multi-purpose arena. They will call this new arena home until at least the 2024-25 season.

Despite downsizing to a smaller arena, Arizona will still maintain its license for sports betting apps.

“In a recent interview with, Ted Vogt, Director of the Arizona Department of Gaming, emphasized our collaboration with all parties, including the Coyotes, to ensure their ongoing operations. The team will be utilizing the stadium in Tempe for the next few years as a temporary relocation.”

We are currently working together with them to tackle the issues once more. This is a new and unfamiliar circumstance for them, as they will no longer be operating in Glendale. If they continue to follow the rules and regulations, they should be able to get their license. Our department is available to help and guarantee that they can keep operating within the limits set by the legislature.

SaharaBets is affiliated with the Coyotes as their betting partner, as the team’s main owner Alex Meruelo also owns the SAHARA in Las Vegas.
