With the focus often tending towards football, NHL betting is repeatedly overlooked as a good place to make bets and focus on consistent winning systems. Here we'll look at some different strategies that you can use in NHL betting to help increase your chances of a win.
First and foremost it's good to know that there is much less activity in NHL betting than in other sports, what this means is that if you know your stuff, you can often come up trumps more easily than if you were placing wagers in other sports.
Once such way that you can do this is to bet on the underdog. If you have researched the game and understand the players and likely outcomes, you can often bet on the underdog when you know that they are a sure thing. 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.
