Ovechkin Favored to Win Goal Scoring Title

Which sniper is favored to notch the most goals in the upcoming NHL season? According to online sportsbook Bodog, it’s Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin.

“Ovie” is currently a very narrow +250 favorite to win the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the league’s leading regular season goal scorer. Ovechkin has been the recipient of the hardware five times in his 10 year career, including three-straight years heading into the 2015/16 campaign.

Right on the Russian’s heels is, unsurprisingly, Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning at +260 odds. Stamkos is no stranger to finding the back of the net, potting 43 goals in 2014/15 – the fourth time he’s eclipsed 40 since entering the league in 2008.

Looking for some long shot value? Edmonton Oilers super rookie Connor McDavid is +1800 at the shop, ahead of established goal-scorers Joe Pavelski, Max Pacioretty, Evgeni Malkin, Jamie Benn, Ryan Johansen and Zach Parise.
