Vezina Trophy odds analysis

The Vezina Trophy odds are tight across our best live betting sites, and the edges are few and far between. Hat tip to Caesars and bet365 for offering a number of outlier high prices for prospective bettors to target.

Vezina Trophy odds movement

While there isn't likely to be significant Vezina Trophy odds movement until the regular season begins in October, it's noteworthy that Tampa Bay Lightning netminder Andrei Vasilevskiy underwent back surgery on Sept. 28. He's expected to miss at least eight weeks of action.

Vezina Trophy odds 2024: Favorite

Ilya Sorokin, Islanders (+600 bet365)

It’s tough to poke holes in Sorokin’s game since debuting during the 2020-21 campaign, and it’s even tougher to argue with him opening as a favorite to take home the Vezina Trophy this coming season.

He’s posted a tidy .924 save percentage and 2.34 GAA through his first three seasons, and the 28-year-old Russian started 60 games in 2022-23 to position him as one of the rare, true No. 1 goalies in the league.

Vezina Trophy odds 2024: Contender

Igor Shesterkin, Rangers (+600 via bet365)

Now a year removed from winning the Vezina and pacing the NHL in save percentage (.935) and GAA (2.07), Shesterkin is primed for a rebound showing following a slow start to the 2022-23 campaign.

After all, he capped off the year with a 12-6-1 record, .940 save percentage and 1.83 GAA over his final 19 starts, including the postseason.

Vezina Trophy odds 2024: Long shot

Alexandar Georgiev, Avalanche (+2500 via Caesars)

It’s a little surprising Geogiev didn’t garner a little more Vezina buzz after winning 40 games with a .918 save percentage and 2.53 GAA in his first season as a No. 1 starter for the Colorado Avalanche.

The 27-year-old Russian is set for full-time work behind one of the best teams in the league, so another strong showing won’t surprise.

Vezina Trophy odds 2024: Fade

Andrei Vasilevskiy, Lightning (+3000 via Caesars)

Vasilevskiy will miss too many games to take a serious run at winning this award.

Additionally, I was already down on the Lightning. Tampa Bay's supporting cast is underwhelming, and Vasilevskiy ranked ninth in the league with 20.53 goals saved above average across 60 starts during 2022. He masked a lot of the Lightning's shortcomings.
