Toronto Maple Leafs Favourites To Win NHL North

The current season of NHL is a season like no other. The 2020-21 NHL regular season is going to be a season like no other.

The season, which is slated to begin on January 13th, will consist of 56 games.

In order to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, the league is being divided into four divisions, with the teams in each division only playing against each other.

Another interesting wrinkle in the schedule - there will be limited travel, which means that two teams can play against each other in the same city for three or four games straight.

So, for instance, the Vancouver Canucks will play in Calgary for four straight games this season.

This should create some playoff-like hockey for the entirety of the season. Not only will teams get sick of each other quickly, but there will also be a furious sprint to the playoffs.

In short, this season should be wacky and excellent.

Canadian hockey fans are especially excited about the "North" division, which will feature all of the Canadian teams.

This means that the Canadian teams will play each other 9-10 teams this year.

This means plenty of Edmonton vs Calgary, plenty of Toronto vs Montreal and plenty of Vancouver vs Toronto.

Which team will end up winning the North Division?

According to Bet365, the clear favourite is the Toronto Maple Leafs, who are currently listed at 2.50 to win the division.

Here are all of the odds as of this moment:
