We're not gonna let Pennsylvania have all the fun when it comes to season-long prop bets. When the new divisions for this year were announced, fans in Chicago and Detroit were fired up because it meant one of the great NHL division rivalries would be rekindled.
The Red Wings and Blackhawks used to pummel each other in the old Norris Division (not to mention the Original Six) so we figured what better way to honor their shared history than to offer the Norris Division Rivalry prop. If you think Chicago will have more points this seaon, you need to risk 250 to make 100. But if you like Detroit, you'll get 195 back for every 100 you risk.
I don't know how much significance to apply, if any, to last season's point totals when discussing a whole new format for this season. But for posterity's sake, the Blackhawks had 72 points in 70 games and the Red Wings had 39 in 71 games.
The Norris Division Rivalry prop is now available on the Barstool Sportsbook in Barstool Exclusives under Spittin' Chiclets Props.
