Ice Hockey Odds
Ice hockey enjoys great popularity in Canada and Northern Europe.
Hockey players are tough athletes. Sometimes their faces are stuck by the puck and yet they still continue to play. They can break bones on the ice, bleed, get hit with sticks, but nothing seems to stop them.
When it comes to online sports betting, few sports match this level of speed, intelligence and technique.
The fastest sport in the world
Constant action is one of the many reasons hockey is one of the greatest sports on the planet. Everything about the sport is fast-paced, with lightning-fast passing, moving and goals scored.
Hockey players train hard to have the ability to control the tempo of the game. They can speed it up, slow it down, or shake things up with heavy-hitting or fighting. In this sport, athletes work as a team, which makes betting much more fun.
Hockey players need to combine all this speed and agility, with being able to stand on a large ice cube on the sharp steel blades under the soles of their feet.
Bet on the NHL, the benchmark championship
The NHL is the largest professional ice hockey league in the world. NHL bets are available daily on bwin.
The regular hockey season runs from October to April, and the playoffs don't end until June.
The NHL playoffs are, without a doubt, some of the most gruelling of all major sports. To become the North American League champions, you must survive four exhausting rounds during the playoffs, in addition to the brutal seven months of regular league games.
The league season is a great time to participate in the live betting markets.
To win NHL playoff winner bets, punters can wait up to twenty-eight games to prove who deserves to win the Lord Stanley Cup.
The main types of hockey bets
As is the case with basketball, the number of matches gives us day by day opportunities to find value bets.
If you are a football bettor, know that what you have learned about the soccer betting markets also applies to bets on ice hockey. This includes the winners of a league or cup competition, the winner of an individual match, the first scorer, the two teams to score over/under, the next scorer, and much more.
Winter Olympics & World Championship
Ice hockey has been a highlight of the Winter Olympics since the 1920s. For many players, winning Olympic gold remains the pinnacle of their careers.
The Ice Hockey World Championships are held annually and feature the top 16 national teams from around the world. With most of the star players in the sport competing, they are reserved for men's teams only.
