Odds for Stanley Cup 2011 Released by Intertops Sportsbook
The National Hockey League (NHL) just got underway Thursday, October 7, and already the Intertops online sports betting operation is accepting wagers on who will claim the Stanley Cup come next April.
Intertops is one of the world’s leading destinations for online sports betting, offering all US major league sports bets. To celebrate the opening of the 2010/2011 NHL season, Intertops Sports is presenting advanced odds on the NHL championship, along with a chance for one lucky winner to collect an all expense paid trip to the NHL All-Star game.
The online sportsbook set forth its odds for the top teams to take the cup before the first puck ever hit the ice at the CONSOL Energy Center, the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins as they faced off with Eastern Conference Champion Philadelphia Flyers.
Pittsburgh is most heavily favored to take the Stanley Cup in 2011, followed closely by Washington and Chicago. The odds were laid down by Intertops Sports as follows:
Intertops Odds to Win 2010-2011 Stanley Cup (as posted Oct 5; subject to change)

Washington Capitals +600
Chicago Blackhawks +650
Vancouver Canucks +900
Detroit Red Wings +1000
New York Islanders +10000
As the NHL season gets underway, Intertops is promoting a free trip to the NHL All Star Game via raffle. Every time a member of the online sports betting site places a wager on any NHL match up, they are automatically entered to win the NHL All Star prize package from Intertops. Every dollar wagered is worth one entry, so a $20 bet on any NHL match-up or proposition bet will grant 20 entries to the prize draw.
The 58th annual NHL All Star game will take place in Raleigh, North Carolina at the RBC Center, home of the Carolina Hurricanes, on January 30, 2011.
Intertops has been making great strides in the online sports betting industry for more than 14 years now, having taken the first ever sports bet over the internet. The sportsbook has been leading the industry ever since, setting the bar for others to follow. Among its online sports betting opportunities, Intertops offers some of the most comprehensive NHL and NFL proposition bets in the business.
From now through Sunday, October 10th, Intertops Sports is promoting an extra 20% in bonuses to all new depositing members to wager on NHL bets; this on top of the current 25% first deposit match bonus received by all new Intertops customers.
