Frozen Assets: Mats Sundin Proposition Bets and 2009 Stanley Cup Odds

puck with pointerProps to Sundin Props

I am always impressed when sportsbooks use their imagination and create interesting hockey propositions. I must give props to Betsson for posting odds on what Mats Sundin will deicide to do this year.

As the final coveted free agent, Sundin has kept hockey writers speculating about where and if he will play this year.

Here is what we know about Sundin’s decision:

• He will make his decision within the next week or so.
• He has not ruled out signing with the Maple Leafs.
• Most speculation has Sundin playing for Toronto or Vancouver.

Here are the odds from Betsson:

If Mats Sundin plays in the NHL by November 15th, will he play for a Canadian or American team?

Canadian…………….-500

American…………….+220

Where will Mats Sundin be playing on the 15 of November?

NHL……………………-250

Nowhere……………..+120

Sweden……………….+800

Other…………………+1900

Will Sundin play in the NHL by the 15 of November?

Yes…………………….-263

No……………………..+125

Though I am impressed with Betsson’s creativity, I would avoid them because of their high juice. There is no value in any of these bets.

Odds have either changed because of a team’s free agent acquisitions, lack of free agent acquisitions, or sportsbooks have differing opinions about what a team’s odds should be.

Generally, I wait until the season starts to place bets. Other than a small play on Phoenix at +8000, I see little value on the board

Before July 1, only two sportsbooks, 10bet and bet365 posted their Stanley Cup odds. Currently, eleven sportsbooks (and Betfair) have posted their NHL futures. How have the odds changed?
