All of our best sports betting apps are offering Norris Trophy odds for the 2023-24 NHL season, and Sportsbook Review betting analyst Neil Parker has taken a peek at the market and shares his thoughts based on the latest NHL odds.

After a blockbuster trade, Erik Karlsson is now a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. While the move catapulted the Swedish defensemen up the Norris Trophy odds lists across our best NHL betting sites ahead of the 2023-24 campaign, Colorado Avalanche blueliner Cale Makar remains the favorite to take home the hardware.

Here’s a look at the 2024 Norris Trophy odds across our best sports betting sites.

Norris Trophy odds analysis

There are two immediate takeaways from the Norris Trophy odds for prospective bettors to note. First, FanDuel is offering the best prices at the top of the board, while DraftKings is the shop to target for second and third-tier contenders in the betting market.

Norris Trophy odds movement

The Karlsson deal did alter his price, but he’s since settled in the Norris Trophy odds across our best live betting sites. I’m not expecting significant movement in the numbers until the regular season begins in October.

Norris Trophy odds 2024: Favorite

Cale Makar, Avalanche (+240 via FanDuel)

The Norris Trophy odds for Makar are incredibly short, but this might also be the longest number available all season. He’s been a finalist for the award in each of his three full seasons in the league and is just entering his prime offensive years.

Norris Trophy odds 2024: Contender

Rasmus Dahlin, Sabres (+1100 via bet365)

The 2018 first-overall selection took a huge step forward last year, but I’m expecting his true breakout season is still ahead. Additionally, the Buffalo Sabres are a team on the rise with a talented collection of youngsters about to enter their prime years.

Norris Trophy odds 2024: Long shot

Evan Bouchard, Oilers (6600 via BetMGM)

Quarterbacking the No. 1 power-play unit for the Edmonton Oilers was a cushy gig for Bouchard, and his offensive numbers skyrocketed once Tyson Barrie was dealt to the Nashville Predators ahead of the 2023 NHL trade deadline.

Bouchard picked up 36 points – nine goals – through the final 33 games of the campaign, including the postseason. That pace will be difficult to maintain, but even approaching it will have the 23-year-old defenseman moving up Norris Trophy odds lists. 

Evan Bouchard is a long shot in the Norris Trophy odds.

Norris Trophy odds 2024: Fade

Quinn Hughes, Canucks (+1800 via Caesars)

With the Vancouver Canucks somewhere between rebuilding and contending, I don’t foresee Hughes taking a realistic run at winning the Norris Trophy. His 76 points across 78 games last year was only good enough for a ninth-place finish in the voting, and it could prove difficult to duplicate the impressive offensive numbers.
