Is there a winning formula for hockey betting?
No. Just like any other type of sports, there is no winning formula or method when it comes to placing a bet on hockey. As with any other form of gambling, you could win, or you could lose, nothing is guaranteed. Different bet types carry different levels of risk, a straight bet would be much safer compared to a parlay bet which yields a higher payout but is much riskier. If you’re new to betting on hockey we suggest dipping your toes into the sports betting pool by placing a bet that carries less risk before placing high stakes wagers.
Is hockey betting safe?
Yes, as long as you place your bets with a licensed and regulated sportsbook. In the states where sports betting is legal, all sportsbooks, land-based and online, must be regulated and granted approval before they can accept bets. Regulatory bodies ensure that these sportsbooks offer bettors fair chances and implement security measures to protect customer information, but it is up to bettors to gamble responsibly and never bet more than they can afford to lose.
Do sportsbooks offer bonuses and promotions for hockey betting?
Yes. Each sportsbook has a number of promotions and bonuses, such as free bets offers and matched deposit deals. These cover a wide range of sports, though some offer bonuses specifically for hockey betting markets. The exact bonuses vary, depending on the sportsbook you choose, so it’s well worth shopping around to find the best deal for you.
I don’t want to bet on hockey, can I bet on other sports?
Yes. In states where sports betting is legal, sportsbooks offer odds on a variety of different professional and amateur sports such as football, basketball, baseball, soccer and darts. Some sportsbooks even offer odds on NCAA hockey games.
Are offshore hockey betting sites safe?
No. Offshore betting sites are not licensed to operate in the US and are therefore unregulated. This means that these sites are not required to meet basic player protection standards. On top of this, there is no way of seeing who is managing your money and some even engage in predatory marketing and advertising practices. If you want to bet on hockey online stick with a regulated site. If online sports betting is not legal in your state we recommend waiting until it is.
