How to bet on Wings player props and futures odds
You’ll undoubtedly be looking to bet on the outcome of Red Wings games, but be sure to take the time to explore other NHL betting odds. Two of the biggest markets you should check out are prop betting and futures.
Props can typically be found by clicking through on individual games, while there’s usually a dedicated futures tab to be found after you click on the NHL link. Here’s what you need to know about both bet types.
Props are additional wagering opportunities on what may happen in a game. Prop bets are based on specific circumstances that might come up from a game, team or player perspective. Here are some examples of what you might see at PointsBet Sportsbook in Michigan and other state betting sites.
- Total points for Dylan Larkin: Over/Under 1.5?
- Which side will record more shots: Red Wings or Maple Leafs?
- Will overtime be needed: Yes/No?
These are wagers you can place on events that will happen in the future. The biggest futures odds market you’ll find is for the winner of the next Stanley Cup, but that’s not all that exists. Here are some of the other popular futures bets you can consider.
- Red Wings regular-season win totals: Over/under a specific number
- Division and Conference winners
- Winners of individual awards: Hart, Vezina, etc.
Props and futures open up the doors to even more betting action for the Red Wings and the rest of the NHL. There are a number of enticing options for you to consider at any time, so be sure to check them out.
Puck lines and moneylines
If you want to bet on an individual hockey game, the most popular bet type is a moneyline bet. The favored team is expressed as a negative number, such as -160, while the underdog has a plus sign in front of its odds, such as +140.
There are also bets similar to a spread bet called puck lines. The line represents the number of goals a team must win or cover as a loser in order for a bet to cash. These lines are typically +1.5 for the underdog and -1.5 for the favorite.

Top 5 Detroit Red Wings players of all time
As an Original Six franchise, the Red Wings have quite the storied history, and a number of legendary players have worn the red and white. Here’s a look at five of the best players in Detroit history.
- Gordie Howe, RW: The man known as “Mr. Hockey” is one of the greatest players in NHL history. Howe played right wing for the Red Wings from 1946-1971, winning four Stanley Cups and racking up numerous accolades along the way.
- Steve Yzerman, C: Yzerman now runs the Red Wings as general manager and executive vice president. Let’s just say that his legendary career helped improve his chances for the gig. A three-time Stanley Cup champ and recipient of numerous awards, he’s a legend in Detroit.
- Ted Lindsay, LW: Lindsay’s No. 7 hangs from the rafters, and it’s for good reason. He was a huge part of the club’s success in the 1940s and 1950s, winning four Cups while being named to the NHL first or second team numerous times.
- Niklas Lidstrom, D: From 1991-2012, Lidstrom was a fixture on defense for Detroit. He spent his final six seasons serving as team captain. Lidstrom won four Cups during his run and was the recipient of the Norris Trophy a whopping seven times.
- Sergei Fedorov, C: Arguably one of the most exciting and dynamic players to ever lace up the skates, Fedorov won the Hart Memorial Trophy in 1994. The Red Wings won three Cups during his time with the team, and he was a huge reason for the success.
Numerous players who have at least spent some time with the Red Wings have been enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, while the club has retired the numbers of eight of its most legendary players.

Detroit Red Wings FAQ
The Red Wings are owned by Ilitch Holdings. Mike Ilitch, founder of the Little Caesars Pizza franchise, purchased the team in 1982 for $8 million. After his death in 2017, official ownership was transferred to the holding company which bears his family name and is owned by his surviving wife, Marian Ilitch. Here is the complete ownership history of the franchise prior to that.
- Bruce Norris, 1955-1982
- Marguerite Norris, 1952-1955
- James E. Norris, 1933-1952
- Creditors’ Committee, 1931-1933
- Charles A. Hughes, 1926-1931
The Red Wings have captured the Stanley Cup title a total of 11 times, which ranks third all-time in NHL history behind the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. The last crown came in 2007-08, which was their fourth in the span of a little over a decade. Prior to that impressive run in which Detroit was one of the top franchises in the NHL, the team had a lengthy title drought from 1955 until 1997.
According to the latest annual evaluation of NHL franchise’s worth by Forbes, the Red Wings had a valuation of $775 million as of late 2020. That ranks them in eighth place among the league’s 31 franchises. The New York Rangers top the list at $1.65 billion. Four other NHL franchises have a valuation of $1 billion or higher: the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, and Boston Bruins.
Although the team has featured a number of legendary players through the years, just eight numbers have been retired by the franchise. Here’s the list.
- 1 — Terry Sawchuk, G, No. 1
- 4 — Red Kelly, D, No. 4
- 5 — Niklas Lidstrom, D, No. 5
- 7 — Ted Lindsay, LW, No. 7
- 9 — Gordie Howe, RW, No. 9
- 10 — Alex Delvecchio, C, No. 10

The tradition dates back to 1952, when a local fish market owner threw an octopus onto the ice during a Stanley Cup playoff game. The eight legs of the octopus were said to be representative of the eight wins it would take for the team to win the Stanley Cup, which they would go on to do that season. Although there have been pushes here and there to end the tradition, it’s still going strong to this day.
After being a regular participant in the NHL playoffs for three decades, the Red Wings have missed out since 2015-16, the first season for head coach Jeff Blashill behind the bench. Detroit was paired up with the Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 1, losing the series 4-1.
It has been a while since the team from Hockeytown has been able to turn that trick. Back in 2010-11, the Red Wings finished atop the Central Division with a record of 47-25-10, which translated into 104 points. After sweeping the Phoenix Coyotes in the opening round of the NHL playoffs, the club fell to the San Jose Sharks in seven games in the Western Conference semifinals.
