NHL – National Hockey League 

NHL: The Basics

The National Hockey League (NHL) is North America’s professional ice hockey league, running in the United States and Canada. It constitutes the best ice hockey players across the two countries: people who have lived on the ice and played hockey since the day they could walk. When you think of the NHL, think of Sydney Crosby, Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe. Ice hockey is fast-paced, with constant action on the ice. You’ll get hooked on the atmosphere of these games which can swing from one team to the next in an instant. 

 

NHL Season Fixtures and Finals

There are 31 teams in the NHL: 24 in the U.S. and 7 in Canada. The NHL preseason runs from September to October, while the regular season runs from October to April. Postseason sees teams playoff for the Stanley Cup. Our expert analysts at Betwithus will help you through every round. 

 

Betting in the NHL

If you’re brand new to betting, head over to our Intro to Betting post on the Home Page. Here, we’ll explain betting, odds, profit margins, the three main types of markets (head-to-hard, line and margin), value betting, exotic markets and parlay picks.

 

Otherwise, it’s time to get into betting in the NHL. 

 

Betwithus offers a whole range of betting advice in the NHL. Think you know who’s going to win in a match between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins? Head over to Sportsbet to make your moneyline bets. 

 

If you reckon you know what the margin will be between the Vancouver Canucks and the Pittsburgh Penguins, make a bet against the spread. Check out what our trusted analysts have to say about the point margin handicaps for each round, and what they mean for your wagers. 

 

Alternatively, you might want to bet on a margin. Reckon the Edmonton Oilers and the New York Rangers will score more than 54 points between them? If that’s the case, check out our advice on over under bets. 

 

You might find that the odds are more in your favour than you think – our expert advisors will let you know when you have found a value bet which others will typically miss. Our analysts also have advice on a bunch of exotic markets. If you’re feeling really lucky, why not make a parlay pick on a range of different odds? 

  

There are a range of ways that you can make your bets when you’ve made up your mind for a particular match, game or tournament. It’s by far easiest to bet online in this day and age, and there are a huge range of betting sites to choose from. They include: BetEasy, BetFair, Bet365, Tab, Ladbrokes, Neds, Bookmaker, PointsBet, Sportsbetting, PlayUp, UBET and Palmerbet.
