Hockey Hockey is sort of a large cult sport that lately hasn’t gotten the love that it deserves. You bet on who will win a best of 5 or best of 7 game series, instead of just one game. Sometimes when one team is heavily favored, you might see odds on a 4-0 sweep. Meaning, for every $1 you bet on the Devils to sweep, you are trying to win $3. If the Flyers win even just one game they become the winning side of the bet.
Sometimes you will see a puck or Canadian line. If you want to bet on the Rangers, you would bet $100 to try to win $140. As we have said about the moneyline being based on 100, you can bet any amount you want, but it will be proportional to these numbers. As always, some juice will be charged.
There are some good bets however. National interest picks up as the play-offs begin, also during Olympic years. If they win exactly eight games, then your bet is a push and all money is returned. Professional football slightly edges college football in terms of popularity. The best bet you can make with football is a simple straight bet, one individual game at a time.
