Understanding NHL Betting

The betting public usually bets on football and basketball so NHL betting is often overlooked as a great way to profit from sports betting. Here we’ll look at some different strategies that you can use in NHL betting to help increase your chances of a win.

What you should first realize is that there is not as much betting activity with NHL betting than you will see on other sports so if you know a little about the game you can probably find several weak spots to take advantage of.

One way to accomplish this is to place a wager on the underdog. Identifying the underdogs with good chances of winning can be a lot easier if have researched the players and understand the game. Bookmakers in general will target their odds towards the majority public bet, which means that betting on the underdog will give you better value, especially if they are likely to win.

Another strategy that you can use is to implement a spread betting system where you consistently bet on the home team for a series of games.  Often in hockey, the away team seems to struggle to gain a win and so if you place a spread on a few home teams, you could find yourself making a nice little profit.

Bookmakers seem to also make consistent mistakes regarding NHL betting in the first round of playoffs. Each season there is usually a major upset with a underdog coming through, so leverage a few low cost wagers in your NHL betting strategy for something which is extremely likely to give you a positive result.
