Only the San Jose Sharks (18.5 percent), Chicago Blackhawks (13.5 percent), Anaheim Ducks (11.5 percent), Columbus Blue Jackets (9.5 percent), and Montreal Canadiens (8.5 percent) had better odds than Utah.

In addition to the odds for the top pick, Utah had a 7.7 percent chance at the second overall pick, 0.2 percent at the third pick, 34.2 percent for the sixth pick, 41.4 percent for the seventh pick, and a 9.1 percent shot at the eighth overall selection.
