Jack Adams Award odds analysis
Brind’Amour opened as the favorite, and I’d expect him to continue hanging at the top of the Jack Adams Award odds lists with the season beginning soon. It is definitely worth pointing out that bettors can’t find a single industry-high price through DraftKings or bet365, while the other three of our best sportsbooks all have multiple high outliers.
Additionally, FanDuel particularly stands out with the best price for a number of favorites.
Jack Adams Award odds movement
I’m not anticipating notable Jack Adams Award odds movement until the regular season begins in October. After all, there hasn't been a single adjustment at the top of the odds boards in this market for over a month.
Jack Adams Award odds 2024: Favorite
Rod Brind’Amour, Hurricanes (+950 via FanDuel)
Despite being a fitting favorite, I’m not sure the narrative street will be wide enough for Brind’Amour to sway voters in his direction.
After all, the Carolina Hurricanes won the Metropolitan Division, finished with the second-most points in the NHL and made the Eastern Conference Final. I give the ‘Canes a better shot of failing to repeat those accomplishments than improving upon them.
Jack Adams Award odds 2024: Contender
Don Granato, Sabres (+1700 via FanDuel)
The Buffalo Sabres are loaded with emerging stars, and Granato can guide them to their first postseason berth since the 2011 playoffs.
He’s already improved the team in consecutive years, and there is room for turnover in the competitive Atlantic Division – especially if the Buffalo blueline takes another step forward defensively.
Jack Adams Award odds 2024: Long shot
Dave Hakstol, Kraken (+3000 via FanDuel)
This nod is all about price, and the number through FanDuel is much better than what’s available across our other best sports betting sites.
Hakstol finished third in the Adams voting last season, and the Kraken featuring few star players works in his favor. If Seattle is once again better than the sum of its parts, Hakstol should receive a lot of credit for the Kraken’s success again.
Jack Adams Award odds 2024: Fade
Jay Woodcroft, Oilers (+1200 via Caesars)
Unless the Edmonton Oilers run away from the league and win the President’s Trophy by a landslide, I’m skeptical that Woodcroft can build a strong enough narrative to be named coach of the year.
Edmonton has the best one-two punch in the NHL up the middle, and Woodcroft already has a high-end .683 winning percentage as a head coach.
