Top online hockey betting tips for Canadians

08 Mar 2018 |


If you stay in Canada and frequently bet on hockey games (on the internet), it wouldn’t come as a surprise that majority of online sports books provide odds on both favourites and underdogs. A good number of these sports betting portals are targeted specifically at Canadians and regularly offer money line odds on the NHL games. For the ones who might not know, money line odds are essentially about the amount you must wager so as to win $ 100 profit in return.

Please also know that it’s not only the dedicated online casinos that offer bets on these hockey games, a good number of reputed Canada’s casinos on the internet also provide such betting services. You can go through the best of these providers by clicking the link above.

Let’s now take you over some of the top online hockey betting tips that can help you score handsome returns on your hockey bets.

Use multiple accounts and window-shop for the best betting odds

A little research on these online bookies would reveal that they provide different types of markets, offers and odds. Therefore, it would be in your best interest to open accounts with many of them and finally go with the ones that offer you the most value for your money.

Master the odds

So you’re keen on backing Montréal in an upcoming Stanley Cup game, and they are being offered at the odds of -200 at your preferred online bookmaker. This type of odds format suggests that you must wager $ 200 on a Montréal win in order to score a $ 100 profit (if they do win that game).

On the other hand, if a different team is going at +250 in another game, it would imply that you must bet $ 100 on that team’s win to score at $ 250 profit.

Compare the odds

Many people think that you’re required to have accounts with all the bookmakers whose odds you want to compare. This is far from the truth. There are several odds comparison portals on the Internet that will do that job for you. They are in the business of compiling odds offered by different bookmakers, for different betting markets.

Please keep in mind that market selection place a very crucial role in finding the best value for your bets. It isn’t uncommon to find major differences in the point spreads of different bookies. It’s actually about the way in which they approach book preparation. In the end you must ideally avail the odds that offer you the best value for your money.

Make strategic use of bonuses

Unlike online casinos that also double up as bookmakers, dedicated sports books rarely offer big welcome bonuses to their first-time customers. That gives you another reason to sign up with online casinos cum bookmakers, who would readily offer you some free bets (the extent depending on your initial deposit and bet amount). In addition, many of them also offer refer-a-friend bonuses, better odds and various cashback offers.
