  • Surprise Long Term Edmonton Contract

    Jackpot Signing for Edmonton 7-7-7 came up with a jackpot signing for the Oilers.  Oscar Klebom has cashed in his 77 games played into a seven year contract  Mind you that we do not mind the signing but for that length of time for such a short initial stay is eyebrow raising.  The silver lining here is that the amount of money per that they got him for.  $4 million and change per year is a frugal contract in terms of this much upside.  A calculated gamble for certain but if it does not turn out well they can always…

Introduction to Betting on Hockey

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.

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…
