Professional hockey continues to lag behind the other three major professional leagues in American sports, but when it comes to sports betting, the NHL provides some of the best entertainment when you peel back the various layers of everything you can bet on within this sport.
NHL betting is widely seen by sharp bettors or experts within this sport as the sport with the most value when it comes to wagering. Many sharp bettors believe that NHL odds tend to be much more favorable for bettors because there is less action on the games, thus there is less importance in making sure every hockey line is razor-sharp.
NHL betting is no different than wagering on any of the major sports. However, with NHL betting moneyline wagering is generally the common means to wager on hockey, as opposed to football and basketball when you are dealing with point spreads much more often.
