The Carolina Hurricanes have developed into a perennial contender in the Eastern Conference but are still looking to get over the hump with a return to the Stanley Cup Finals.

How can you bet on the Carolina Hurricanes on an online sportsbook in North Carolina?

Online sports betting has launched in North Carolina. As of March 11, 2024, you can now bet on the Carolina Hurricanes on an online sportsbook by following these steps.

  1. Know what sportsbooks are available: Using a legal, licensed online sportsbook is the only safe way to practice sports betting in North Carolina. To help you find which operators meet that criteria, we’ve written thorough sportsbook reviews of each approved operator, including analyzing their welcome bonus offers, app performance, unique features, banking methods, and more. These reviews culminate in an overall sportsbook score to help you find a quality online sportsbook that best meets your betting wants and needs.
  2. Decide where to play and complete your registration: Once you’ve found a few sportsbooks that you’d like to try out, you can use the links available in our sportsbook reviews to access the respective signup forms. These links will help you secure the best available promo offers, and you can reference the review throughout your signup if you run into any issues along the way.
  3. Fund your betting account: Next, you’ll need to use an approved banking method to move money into your sportsbook account. Without a deposit, you won’t be able to claim any bonus funds. For a list of available transaction options, check the list in our sportsbook reviews.
  4. Research the bets you’d like to bet: An uninformed bet is always a poor choice, as you’re much more likely to win when you understand the matchups and trends. Reading betting previews, analyzing recent results, and finding hidden value can help tilt the odds in your favor.
  5. Shop the odds to find the best deal: In much the same way as you would go to multiple stores before making a major purchase, you should always check in with multiple online sports betting sites to find which odds are the most favorable for the wagers you want to make. Small differences in the lines between various bookies can add up to larger profits on your winning bets over time.

Which bet types are available for the Carolina Hurricanes?

There are many bet types available for the Carolina Hurricanes that you'll find at online sportsbooks in NC. Here are a few of the options we expect will be early favorites.

  • Moneyline and Puck line: Moneyline and puck line bets are relatively straightforward and involve picking the winner of a game. A moneyline wager on Carolina wouldn’t be concerned with the margin of victory or whether overtime or a shootout is necessary; it’s simply about who is ahead when the final score sounds. However, if the Hurricanes were puck line favorites, they would need to win by at least two goals for a puck line bet to win; otherwise, their opponent “covered” and won on the puck line even if they lost the game.
  • Prop bets: Prop bets are another fun way to get in on the betting action in a way that isn’t directly tied to the final score. They can include markets on Sebastian Aho to score a goal, Andrei Svechnikov to record at least three shots on goal, Pyotr Kochetkov’s save total, or whether the Hurricanes will score a goal in the first 10 minutes.
  • Parlays: Parlays are a unique way to combine your bets into a single wager, allowing you to multiply the winnings for each “leg” added to the slip. They’ve become quite popular in recent years due to the rise of the same game parlay, allowing gamblers to focus their research on a single contest rather than relying on multiple games for their wager. Parlays can lead to large payouts even at a relatively low stake, but if a single leg of the parlay fails, the entire bet loses.

History of the Carolina Hurricanes

The history of the Carolina Hurricanes extends back to the organization’s days calling the New England area home. Let’s take a look at some of the key dates to know in the Canes’ franchise timeline.

  • 1971: The New England Whalers, the franchise that would eventually become the Hurricanes, join the World Hockey Association (WHA). The Whalers called Boston their home early on and briefly shared a venue with the Boston Bruins.
  • 1973: The Whalers win the inaugural WHA championship, defeating the Winnipeg Jets. This would be the club’s only championship, though they won another Conference Championship in 1978.
  • 1974: Amid scheduling complications from sharing a home venue with the Bruins, the Whalers moved to Hartford, CT.
    January 1975: The Whalers debuted their new venue, the Hartford Civic Center Coliseum, which would be the team’s home for the next 24 years.
  • 1979: Following the NHL-WHA merger, Hartford joined the National Hockey League. The Whalers were one of the more successful WHA franchises, so they were able to keep the bulk of their team intact upon switching leagues, meaning star players like Gordie Howe, Dave Keon, Al Smith, Gordie Roberts, and Mike Rogers, were able to stay with their team, giving Hartford moderate success in their inaugural NHL season.
  • 1986: After several seasons of missing the playoffs, the Whalers returned to the postseason and swept the top-seeded Quebec Nordiques in the first round. This would be the team’s only playoff win while in Hartford, as the Whalers would be eliminated in the first round in each of the next five seasons.
  • 1997: Owner Peter Karmanos announces the team will be relocating after years of unsuccessful negotiations on the construction of a new arena. With a short period of time to prepare the move, Karmanos decided on the team name (Carolina Hurricanes) and colors, matching the color scheme of NC State, given the shared arena usage. During the construction of the Raleigh Entertainment and Sports Arena, the Hurricanes spent their first two seasons playing home games in Greensboro. Because of the travel distance involved for fans, attendance was dismal during those years (most games had crowds under 5,000 despite a venue capacity of 21,000).
  • 1999: In their first full season in Raleigh, the Hurricanes won the Southeast Division. However, their playoff hopes were dashed by the Boston Bruins in six games during the conference quarterfinals.
  • 2002: Carolina makes a run to the Stanley Cup Finals after winning their second Southeast Division title, eliminating the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, and Toronto Maple Leafs before losing to the Detroit Red Wings.
  • 2006: Following the NHL lockout during the 2004-05 season, the Hurricanes surged to a 52-22-8 record, the best they had ever finished dating back to the Whalers days and a team-best mark that would stand until 2022. Building off this strong regular season and outstanding postseason performances from rookie goaltender Cam Ward, Carolina captured its first Stanley Cup, beating the Edmonton Oilers in seven games.
  • 2007: After their Cup win, the Hurricanes lost several key players in free agency and struggled for the next decade, with only one playoff appearance (2008-09) in the next 12 seasons.
  • 2021: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hurricanes were temporarily realigned into the Central Division for an abbreviated regular season. Carolina won the division title with a 36-12-8 record. The Canes would follow up this win with division crowns in 2022 and 2023 after moving back to the Metropolitan Division.
