The NHL community is a tight knit group of bettors that form one of the smaller communities in sports betting. Many experts in the sports betting industry feel that betting on the NHL is the smartest wager in all of sports, mainly due to the fact that less people bet on hockey and that means that the odds stay true to form.
In many sports, when the public starts to favor one team and a significant amount of money gets bet on that one team, the odds for the opposing team go in various directions. This makes the point spread and odds on the game explosive and hard to judge. That is rarely the case with NHL hockey betting since there is only a small pool of bettors wagering on a game.
With that being said, betting on hockey and specifically NHL hockey is fun, makes an already exciting game just a tad bit more entertaining and puts a different spin on the game!
