odds to win 2013 hart trophy sidney crosby
The Hart Trophy is considered the “oldest and most prestigeous” award in hockey and is awarded to the regular season MVP. Canadians Sidney Crosby and John Tavares are both in the running so check out our preview of the betting odds and find out where to bet on who will win the 2013 Hart Trophy!

The “Hart Memorial Trophy” is awarded to the player judged “most valuable to his team” and this is decided by a vote from members of the “Professional Hockey Writers Association”. These writers tend to pick play favourites with big stars and give the Trophy to the “best player” instead of the most valuable player, and that is why you see Sidney Crosby at such short odds.

Sidney Crosby -275
Alex Ovechkin +350
John Tavares +500

If you consider who is more valuable to their team, John Tavares should be the favourite because if he didn’t play, the Islanders would have no hope of reaching the post season. Crosby has been injured for long stretches and the Penguins still won because they have a roster of stars to pick up he slack. While Crosby is the better all around player, Tavares is far more more valuable to his team.
