Our Futures tracking is a major strategic upgrade for hockey bettors. As you consider which wagers to lock in at the start of the postseason, the Futures tool enables you to track how the odds have moved to pinpoint how or why a team is valued at a certain price. You can also customize the market for which you'd like to see past odds for, including individual player awards like the Hart or Vezina.
