Vancouver Canucks Odds

Since making their NHL debut in 1970, the Vancouver Canucks have experienced many high and lows. Despite three Stanley Cup Finals appearances, the Canucks have yet to win and etch their names on the Stanley Cup.

Do the Canucks have what it takes to become Stanley Cup contenders again? Much will depend on the play of Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes and the rest of their young core. If they can parlay their success at home to the road, the Canucks could find themselves making another playoff run.

With single-game betting coming to Ontario, and to BC and the rest of Canada soon after, NHL betting odds will be the talk of the province. Here’s a complete look at Canucks betting odds, from tonight’s game odds to Canucks odds to make playoffs or win the Stanley Cup, plus some NHL betting secrets and Canucks stats to help make those betting decisions.

How to bet on the Canucks

 MoneylineSpreadOver/Under
Vancouver Canucks+135+1.5 (- 190)Over 5.5 (-115)
Toronto Maple Leafs-160-1.5 (+ 155)Under 5.5 (-105)

Here is a rundown of some odds and sports betting terms you should know when betting on the NHL and the Canucks:

  • Money Line: Placing a moneyline bet means you are betting on which team you expect to win. The minus (-) sign indicates the favourite and the amount you must bet to win $100. The plus (+) sign indicates the underdog and the amount you win for every $100 bet. Using the moneyline above, you would bet $160 on the favoured Toronto Maple Leafs in order to win $100. If you bet on the underdog Canucks to win the game, you would wager $100 to win $128.
  • Spread or Puck Line: Spread odds are based on the margin of victory in the game. Because hockey tends to be a low-scoring affair, the pre-game spread is usually set at +1.5 or -1.5. Whenever you wager on the puck line, you are betting on the favourite (-1.5) to win by 2 goals, or the underdog (+1.5) to either lose by one goal or win outright. The numbers in brackets are the odds you use to calculate how much you’d win based on your wager.
  • Over/Under or Total: Oddsmakers set a combined number of goals that might be scored in the game. You bet whether the total will be under or over that number. The half goals eliminate any chance of a “push,” or a tie. In brackets are the odds used to calculate how much you’d win based on your wager.
  • In-Game or Live Betting: In-game betting happens when you bet on a game while it is in progress. Live betting odds adjust throughout the game.
  • Props: Prop betting, or propositional betting, allows you to wager on specific players and events within the game that don’t directly affect the game’s final outcome. An example of a popular NHL prop bet is on which player will score the first goal of a game.
  • Futures: These are wagers placed on an event that will take place in the future, not in tonight’s game. Some common NHL futures odds include who will win the Stanley Cup, what teams will win a conference title, and who will score a major player award at the end of the season.
  • Parlay: A parlay is a sports bet that combines several different wagers together. In a parlay bet, every individual bet on the parlay must be successful in order for the entire parlay to be a winner.
  • Push: A push is a bet where the final result is a tie. In the event of a push, you’ll receive your stake back and not lose any of the money you wagered.

#1 Canucks betting tip

One thing to consider when betting on the NHL is the number of back-to-back games in a team’s schedule. Playing a back-to-back series, or two games in a row, limits the amount of rest between games and fatigue becomes a factor, especially on the second night.

Canucks schedule 2021

In a regular NHL season the Canucks play 82 games as part of the Pacific Division in the Western Conference.

For the 2020-21 NHL season, the league made changes to its usual 82-game regular season. Teams played a compressed season of 56 games and new divisions were also created. The Canucks were assigned to the all-Canadian North Division, playing their slate of regular season games against the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, Montreal Canadiens,Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and Winnipeg Jets.

Canucks in the Stanley Cup playoffs

The Canucks first significant playoff run was in 1982. Led by legendary forward Stan Smyl, their Cinderella run ended in the Stanley Cup Finals when they were swept in four games by the heavily favoured New York Islanders.

The 1990s marked the Canucks return to prominence. With a roster highlighted by offensive stars Trevor Linden and Pavel Bure, Vancouver made its second trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1994. This time they were bested by the New York Rangers in a demoralizing 3-2 loss in Game 7.

Other major talents have since suited up for the Canucks, from Markus Naslund to Roberto Luongo to Henrik and Daniel Sedin, but they’ve never quite managed to put all the pieces together to win a championship. Their last appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals was in 2011. The result was another Game 7 loss for the Canucks.

Canucks draft picks/top prospects

The Vancouver Canucks had to wait until the third round to make their first pick of the 2020 NHL Draft, having traded away their first and second round picks. The Canucks selected Finnish defenseman Joni Jurmo at 82nd overall.

The Canucks have a long history of success finding gems in the later rounds of the draft, including Kevin Bieksa (3rd round, 2001) and Alexander Edler (3rd round, 2004). But their greatest draft-day steal to-date has to be their selection of legendary Russian forward Pavel Bure in the 6th round of the 1989 entry draft.

Here is a list of some of the Canucks’ notable selections from recent drafts:

Canucks logo/mascot/jerseys

The Vancouver Canucks made their 1970 NHL debut sporting blue, green, and white jerseys. Their logo at the time depicted a stylized hockey stick against an ice rink that formed the letter “C” for Canucks.

For their 1978-79 season, the Canucks made the switch to their infamous black, gold, and orange colour scheme. The logo became a flying “V” for Vancouver. This design was tweaked over the next several seasons and, in 1989, the flying skate logo was introduced.

The last major change came in 1997, when the team unveiled a logo that featured a Haida-styled orca jumping out of an ice-covered letter “C”. Subtle updates have continued to happen, but the Canucks currently sport jerseys with the orca logo in the team’s current colours of blue and green.

Fin the Killer Whale is the mascot of the Vancouver Canucks. He is an anthropomorphic orca that debuted during the 2001-2002 season. Fin is one of the few NHL mascots who plays the position of a goaltender. 

Three most heart-breaking Canucks moments

Listed below are three of the most crushing moments experienced by the Canucks and their fans in recent history:

#1 – Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals

2011 marked another Stanley Cup final for the Canucks and another seven-game series loss. Playing against the Boston Bruins, the Canucks blew a 3-1 series lead and fell 4-0 in Game 7. As in 1994, the loss sparked rioting in Vancouver.

#2: Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals

In the Canucks’ second trip to the Stanley Cup finals, they faced off against the New York Rangers. The Canucks bounced back from a 3-1 deficit only to lose by one goal in Game 7, the most agonizing of margins. Fans rioted in the wake of the Canucks’ defeat.

#3: The Sedins say goodbye to Canucks fans in their final home game

It was the end of an era when the legendary Sedin twins, Daniel and Henrik, retired at the end of the 2017-18 season. Drafted together in the 1999 NHL entry draft, they spent all 18 seasons of their NHL careers as Canucks.
