Ice Hockey Betting

When it comes to winter sports, it really doesn’t get much bigger than Ice Hockey. The first known mention of the game was in 1773, so it certainly has a long history. Today the National Hockey League (NHL), which was founded in 1917, is by far the most popular and prestigious Ice Hockey league in the world. The Stanley Cup, which goes to the playoff champion at the end of each season, is the oldest trophy in the sporting world.

The NHL’s 31 teams are all based in the United States and Canada (24 and 7 squads respectively), but over the years the reams themselves have become increasingly multinational. Currently there are players from almost 20 different countries in the League.

Since it is the most prestigious organisation in the sport, rising stars from Europe are often enticed to sign up with lucrative offers. In the same way, athletes that are past the peak of their careers often move from the NHL to European teams. There are national squads in Russia, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and several other countries.

You’ll find sports betting offers for many of the events that European nations participate in at Spin Sports, but the best place for novices to start is the NHL. The sheer size of the League means you’ll get to experience all wagering possibilities, and you can then use this knowledge to put money on other games.

Ice Hockey Betting Possibilities

In this sport, you can place Moneyline wagers to simply predict a winner, or choose the Puck Line option, which is similar to a Point Spread in Football. You can also place Over/Under Bets (often called Totals), where you just need to say whether the final combined score will be more or less than a pre-set number.

Totals are a great starting point when you’re new to wagering on Ice Hockey, since they’re easier than trying to decide who will win. Proposition Bets are also offered, and they can be on almost anything game-related. This includes who will score first, who will record the most points, and how many points will be recorded in the first period.

Let’s hope it’s coast to coast!

Sports Betting Advice from the Experts

When you place wagers at our sportsbook, there are several factors to evaluate when you’re deciding whom to back in an Ice Hockey game. As always, check past performances, injury reports and as many insider reports as you can. You should also look at the schedule, and work out how long a team has had to travel for. The sport is very demanding, and since players often have to travel a long way to get to a venue, fatigue can be a real concern.

Finally, pay close attention to how teammates interact with each other. Working well together is important in all disciplines, but it is especially so in this one. Players need to collaborate to score goals, and to defend the puck on the ice. This is what produces skilled performances, and makes the NHL and other leagues so much fun to watch!
