Polarization Among Most of the Teams as NHL Playoffs Near

Mar 22, 2015

Most of the league has reached a state of polarization.  The teams that know they are out can be quality selections for wagering if they have established farm systems to audition.  Also the teams near the top are finding a middle gear that enables them to both keep their seeding and rest of some of their key players.  The rest are in hot pursuit to make it in.  The Jets and Kings are two of those teams.  Which one has surged in front of the other?  Also what goalie that still has to prove it in the playoffs is pounding the…

Anyone who has been involved with sports betting for any length of time has probably heard the story about the down-and-out gambler who went on a horrible losing streak in football, then shifted his attention to basketball, with the same degree of non-success. He just could not pick a winner, and this was nothing out of the ordinary, as he simply did not have a firm grasp of handicapping principles. With a certain desperation, he had a conversation with a friend as he explained his woes. The friend, trying to be helpful, suggested that maybe the desperate loser could take…

Money Lines and Puck Lines in Hockey

There are a few different ways to bet on hockey, and we will go over them. The one that will be easiest for the general public to understand is the MONEY LINE, which essentially allows the bettor to place a wager on the outright winner of a game, with a price on the favorite and a price on the underdog. You will find these prices expressed in odds that are referred to as “American,” and not fractional. So as the hockey bettor, you are analyzing the “value” that appears in the line on either side, as you perceive it. Here…
