    The NHL regular season is over. The playoffs are here.

    It’s time to make a Stanley Cup pick.

    Here’s an updated look at the Stanley Cup odds as the playoffs get set to kick off.

    2022 NHL Stanley Cup Teams To Watch

    Here are the Stanley Cup playoff odds to win the 2022 Stanley Cup as of May 2, 2022, with betting information courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook.

    Colorado Avalanche (+330)Florida Panthers (+550)Calgary Flames (+750)Toronto Maple Leafs (+1000)Carolina Hurricanes (+1100)Tampa Bay Lightning (+1100)Boston Bruins (+1600)Minnesota Wild (+1600)New York Rangers (+1600)Edmonton Oilers (+1800)Pittsburgh Penguins (+2000)St. Louis Blues (+2000)Washington Capitals (+4000)Dallas Stars (+5000)Los Angeles Kings (+5000)Nashville Predators (+5000)

    The Colorado Avalanche have been the betting favorite all season, and there’s no reason for that to change as they enter the playoffs. Still, Colorado has company at the top with the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Florida Panthers as well as the scorching-hot Calgary Flames, among the betting favorites.

    Colorado ran away with the Central Division thanks to a dynamic offense spearheaded by Norris Trophy favorite Cale Makar. The Avalanche took off thanks to a 19-game point streak in January and February and a 22-game home point streak where they went 20-0-2 at Ball Arena.

    In the East, it’s Florida and everyone else. But to get to the Cup final, the Panthers will need to defeat a 100-point team since all eight postseason teams reached triple digits in the East — the first time an entire conference’s full field has surpassed 100 regular-season points.

    The Hurricanes are the top team from the Metropolitan Division, even though they trail the Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs among Eastern Conference contenders. They’ll have to defeat the Bruins in the first round, who are always a tough out come playoff time, as well as the winner of the Penguins-Rangers first-round series.  The Rangers, led Vezina favorite and Hart Trophy candidate Igor Shesterkin, look especially dangerous.

    2022 Stanley Cup Winner Prediction

    Carolina Hurricanes (+1100)

    You can’t just pick the favorite, right? Carolina is loaded up front, on defense and especially in goal with Frederik Andersen serving as a potential Vezina Trophy candidate.

    Carolina has been knocking on the door the past three seasons — the Hurricanes lost to the Bruins in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals and have fallen in the second round each of the past two seasons — and feels like a more complete team with Andersen in the cage.

    The Hurricanes are stingy defensively, allowing the fewest regular-season goals (202) and are an awesome road team. That’s really important come playoff time. They also have an elite top line, keyed by leading scorers Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen.

    They have skill up and down their lineup and get scoring from their underrated defense corps. Few teams could lose a Norris Trophy candidate like Dougie Hamilton and somehow get even stingier defensively, yet Carolina somehow has.

    The Hurricanes are a great value play, too, so take advantage while the hockey world is underestimating them.

    2022 Stanley Cup Favorites

    Colorado Avalanche (+330)

    If ever there were a season to buy into Colorado to claim the Cup for the first time since 2001, this would be it. The Avalanche are loaded, especially offensively, and have oodles of playoff experience thanks to three straight second-round exits, two of which came in Game 7.

    There’s also urgency for the Avalanche to win now. Colorado has been lauded for its young core of superstars on team-friendly contracts, notably that of center Nathan MacKinnon, that enabled general manager Joe Sakic to build a championship contender.

    But that window is closing, as the Avalanche have nine pending unrestricted free agents. This includes leading scorer and No. 2 center Nazem Kadri, who is having a career year, and both goalies Darcy Kuemper and Pavel Francouz.

    The best time of the year has finally arrived -- and, no, we're not talking about spring. We're talking about the Stanley Cup playoffs.

    The 2022 NHL postseason gets going in full swing on Monday as 16 teams are battling for the chance to hoist the Stanley Cup.

    There are plenty of intriguing storylines as we head into the postseason. Is this finally the year the Maple Leafs win a playoff series? Do the Oilers have what it takes to make a deep run? Will the Avalanche and Panthers live up to expectations and meet in the Stanley Cup Finals?

    It's always an exciting time that captivates the sports world for a couple of months. Enough of that, let's dive into the first-round series and see which teams Sporting News has moving on.

    NHL playoff predictions: Eastern Conference

    Florida Panthers (A1) vs. Washington Capitals (WC2)

    The backstory

    Florida is fresh off winning the Presidents' Trophy and has been one of the most exciting teams in the league. Their offense ranks first as the only team to average more than four goals per game. There has never been a Panthers team this good since the franchise came to be in the '90s, and there is a lot of excitement down in sunny Florida.

    The Capitals have been the forgotten child of the Eastern Conference playoff teams. No one seems to be giving them a chance against the high-octane Panthers, but the Capitals can play a rough, physical game more suited for the postseason. Moreover, they are the only team in this series with a recent Stanley Cup underneath their belt.

    X-factor

    The last time Aaron Ekblad skated in a game was March 18. Everyone thought it was going to be a huge blow to the Panthers. The team's response? Going 16-4-0 to end the season, including a 13-game winning streak. The team proved they can still win without their top defenseman, and now that he might be coming back sooner than expected, it's like the Panthers' getting the final Infinity Stone.

    The big number 32. The Panthers are known for their high-powered offense. They averaged the most goals in a game this season in the entire league. During the 82-game this season, Florida scored at least five goals 32 times. It resulted in 31 wins and one loss. Not that the Capitals needed any more insight into how dominant the Panthers are offensively but yeah, you really don't want to let them score five goals in a game.SN's pick: Panthers in 5.

    Toronto Maple Leafs (A2) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (A3)

    The backstory

    The two boys in blue. On one side, we have a team notoriously known for their playoff failures, and on the other, the back-to-back Stanley Cup champs. So, of course, the betting favorite in this series is the former, as the Maple Leafs head into the first round with heavy expectations.

    Auston Matthews had a historic regular season, hitting the 60 goal-threshold and breaking the Maple Leafs' single-season scoring record. Mitch Marner once again was an offensive wonder with 97 points, but how can you really bet against the Lightning? Sure, they weren't as dominant in the regular season, but they weren't last year either. It's a group that knows how to win and has three-peat on their minds.

    X-factor

    Is it a cop-out to say the Rocket Richard winner is the series' biggest x-factor? Maybe, but Auston Matthews is going to have to bring it this postseason. He led the league in goals last season and then found the back of the net just once in seven games in the first-round series loss against the Canadiens. In fact, over the past two playoffs, he has just three goals in 12 games. The Maple Leafs can't afford Matthews to go cold otherwise *insert first-round exit joke here*.

    The big number 27.3.  Special teams are always discussed as such a huge factor in games. Well for the Lightning, they would like to stay out of the box as much as possible. Toronto finished the regular season with a league-high 27.3-percent success rate on the man advantage. Matthews and William Nylander each ranked in the top 15 in power play goals this season. The PK units for Tampa Bay are going to have to bring their A-game.SN's pick: Lightning in 7.MORE: Maple Leafs vs. Lightning first-round preview for 2022 NHL playoffs

    Carolina Hurricanes (M1) vs. Boston Bruins (WC1)

    The backstory

    Carolina-Boston: The Trilogy. It's the third time in four postseasons these two foes are battling. The Bruins came out on the top in the previous, sweeping the Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference finals in 2019 and then beating the Canes in five games in 2020.

    However, Carolina thumped Boston in three games during the regular season, outscoring Boston 16-1 in the process. The big storyline heading into the series is the status of Frederik Andersen. He's already going to miss Game 1 as he battles a lower-body injury, so when will he be able to return? The Hurricanes have been the best defensive team in the league this season, but without Andersen, they may have a tough time against a Bruins team that has been one of the hottest teams since the New Year.
