Why are the San Diego Seals Favourites?

The top team in the Western Conference last year, the Seals were one of the top overall squads in the NLL, leading their conference in goals scored while still playing terrific defence. In an highly competitive conference, the Seals will need to continue to build on their momentum gained last season in order to get back to the mountain top before making their push towards the NLL Cup.
At +550, the Seals have fantastic value attached to them and are a great bet to be in the running for this years NLL Cup.
Team to Fade: Philadelphia Wings
A wildcard team from last years postseason, the Philadelphia Wings currently sit with tied with the fourth-best odds to win this years NLL Cup. While the Wings did make improvements to their roster in the offseason, they still shouldn’t be considered serious contenders for this years top prize.

Be sure to fade the Wings whenever you are looking at placing an NLL futures wager and a save your account balance for teams with a legitimate chance at winning this seasons NLL Cup.
Sleeper Pick: Albany FireWolves
A mediocre team from a season ago, the Albany FireWolves may be positioned to shock the NLL world and make a deep push into the playoffs. The FireWolves managed to find their way into the playoff picture last season but were easily handled by the powerhouse Buffalo Bandits in the opening round of the playoffs.
Looking to build upon the success of last season the FireWolves executed a fire sale in the offseason, dealing away their top-five scorers from last season but acquiring several new key pieces that could help lead them into an improved season in 2022-23.
While their offence was jeopardized, the FireWolves doubled down on the defensive side of the game and will be a tough matchup for any team that faces them. Led by notable netminder Doug Jamieson, the FireWolves will always be given a chance to win with his stellar play.
Look for the FireWolves to exceed the expectations set for them this season and possibly find themselves making a Cinderella run into the NLL Playoffs. Back the FireWolves at terrific value (+1800) and bet like you use a crystal ball on this NLL Futures wager.
