Hart Trophy odds 2024: favorite

Nathan MacKinnon (-120 via DraftKings)

MacKinnon has been on a tear, scoring a goal in four straight games to enter the All-Star weekend. One of those games he scored four times to go along with an assist. Speaking of assists, he is on a ridiculous 13-game streak scoring a point (goal or assist).

His four-goal game is probably what gave him the edge in the odds lately, and if he continues to collect goals and assists will likely begin to run away with the market. 

Hart Trophy odds 2024: contender

Connor McDavid (+430 via FanDuel)

Although McDavid began to pick it up before the All-Star break, he was struggling to score goals. He went on a four-game hiatus without a goal, normal for most players, but not the favorite for the Hart Memorial. 

Since that slump he's scored in three straight games, but the production of MacKinnon has been tough to match. McDavid is consistently scoring for Edmonton but not multiple times a game, which is what MacKinnon is doing and what we've been accustomed from seeing with McDavid over the years. 

Hart Trophy odds 2024: Long shot

Sam Reinhart (+6000 via BetMGM)

What a great long shot to consider here, the NHL's top goal scorer on a surging team that reached the Stanley Cup a season ago. He has scored a goal in 12 of 13 games, which includes a hat trick, while also scoring a point (goal or assist) in all 13 of those games. 

Reinhart will likely see his production drop off slightly, but if it doesn't then getting a 60/1 ticket on him is absolutely worth a risk.
