Ice Hockey Betting

Ice Hockey betting is a staple of many online bookmakers, and its influence has recently spread to the UK. The game is particularly popular in nations like Canada and the US - where it is simply known as "Hockey" - and Eastern and Northern European nations like Russia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Sweden. However, with the rise of televised coverage in the UK, British punters have steadily been showing an increased interest in the sport.

Ice Hockey is a tough sport requiring stamina and speed. Indeed, the game has good claim to be one of the most fast, physical sports around. Unlike traditional Hockey, the game is played on skates, and players chase the puck on natural or artificial ice. Each game consists of three parts, each starting with a traditional face-off to fight for possession of the puck. The team that scores the most goals is the winner.

Major events in the Ice Hockey betting calendar include the annual Stanley Cup, which is the final playoff between North American teams in the NHL tournament, and the Ice Hockey World Championships, which are held between International teams every year. Ice Hockey is also a component sport of the Winter Olympics, held once every four years.

Ice Hockey Betting Markets

Although not every UK bookmaker offers fixed-odds for Ice Hockey, those that do tend to provide outright win and draw markets for the NHL and Stanley Cup. Some betting exchanges offer additional markets such as correct series score.
