The 2013-14 NHL regular season is set to begin on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and that means that there will be plenty of opportunities to start making money on the ice. While the popularity of hockey in the United States isn’t the same as for football, basketball or even baseball, that doesn’t mean that you can’t cash in on it. In fact, there’s a good chance that you’ll see much better results if you do decide to dive into hockey this season. Here are the top 10 reasons that you should be betting on hockey this year:
- Hockey is a daily sport that offers lots of wagering opportunities. Each day the slate of games offers moneylines, pucklines and totals, so you can be selective in which games and the types of bets that you choose.
- Hockey doesn’t get the attention that the other sports do, thus the lines are much softer and provide much more value. If you take advantage of these errors by the linesmakers, you can build up your bankroll very quickly.
- Good hockey information is very hard to find, and when you get your hands on it, it can be very powerful. Doc’s knows what information wins and utilizes a sophisticated hockey model that calculates how much value each game has for the bettor.
- You don’t have to follow the NHL that closely, as Doc’s NHL Handicapper will do that for you and provide daily writeups with insightful information. We have a passion and dedication to the sport, and it shows up in our results.
- Hockey is played with tons of emotion, and sometimes that leads to excellent betting opportunities. Hockey players have tons of pride and don’t want to get embarrassed, so you oftentimes can find mismatches simply based on motivation and situational spots.
- Hockey is a streakier sport than most, and you can ride teams for long stretches or play against teams for long periods of time if you can identify a strong trend. Last season there were several long streaks that provided the bettor a clear path to profits.
- The NHL Playoffs are unlike any other sport, filled with non-stop action and drama…..and yes, more betting opportunities. There are series bets, conference winner bets, Stanley Cup future bets and more.
- Hockey is a great investment…..period. You won’t get the returns in the stock market that you’ll get for an entire hockey season. In a good hockey season, you can double your bankroll. Try doing that in the stock market in less than a year.
- Hockey is easier to beat than all other major sports. There are lots of people betting football, baseball and basketball, so the betting markets are much tighter in those sports. With relatively few people betting on the NHL, there are more opportunities in the market.
