They’re just not a public team for some strange reason. Hockey has been so open on the futures historically, so the public is more likely to bet longshots.”

“It’s been somewhat similar to the Golden Knights’ first season, the public is buying into the fairytale with the expansion team,” Mucklow included. “Based off the Kraken’s expansion draft, I think they’re building for next year, but the public seems to think differently. But the liability for the Kraken is still nowhere near what it was for the Knights. The Knights had longer odds and they got the homer cash from locals while Seattle doesn’t have legalized sports betting.”

Finally, the Islanders blaze a trail in overall dollars bet at 15 percent amongst Stanley Cup futures. New York is the only group that has actually gathered a double-digit portion because classification with the Avalanche behind them at 9 percent.
