There are no signs of Alex Ovechkin slowing heading into his first season after winning a Stanley Cup. Bovada just published their latest odds for the Hart Memorial Trophy (the NHL’s Most Valuable Player Award) and Ovechkin was tied with the third-best odds to win in all the NHL in 10/1.
He had been joined by 2 other Washington Capitals, Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov both at 50/1 odds.
Here are the odds for the best 11 players:
Connor McDavid 10/3
Sidney Crosby 13/2
Auston Matthews 10/1
Alex Ovechkin 10/1
Jon Tavares 10/1
Taylor Hall 15/1
Nikita Kucherov 15/1
Nathan MacKinnon 15/1
Mark Scheifele 15/1
Anze Kopitar 18/1
Evgeni Malkin 18/1
The only two players ahead of’The Great 8′ are the 21-year-old McDavid and dreaded rival Crosby.
Even with the immense amount of alcohol that’s been consumed in the past two months, Ovechkin is still controlling respect in Vegas. It’s difficult not to when he turns around these intense offseason workouts. In 32, Ovechkin led the NHL in scoring with 49 goals per year ago, the seventh such time he’s done so.
Already the 2018 Conn Smythe winner has three MVP trophies to his name (just one more than Crosby) and there is not any telling what to expect today that the 11-time All-Star has a Stanley Cup title.
In his 11 years in the league, Backstrom hasn’t received any votes for the Hart Memorial Trophy. Kuznetsov has done so after which was in the 2015-16 season.
