NHL Stanley Cup Betting Action at BetAnySports
The second Monday in April is highlighted by the national title game in men’s college basketball.
While this may be your last chance this season for this highly popular betting sport, the NHL’s second season is just getting underway this Wednesday with the opening round games in this season’s Stanley Cup Playoffs.
From early April right into the month of June, playoff hockey offers four rounds of best-of-seven series to determine this season’s champion.
The opening round alone features eight separate matchups. While BetAnySports’ NHL betting board is filled with betting lines for this initial round of games, you can also bet on series prices for each of those eight matchups.
Throw in some Stanley Cup futures as well as game props for team and player betting options and there always more ways to bet and more ways to win at one of the top-rated online sportsbooks for US players.
There is nothing more exciting than playoff hockey in the NHL. Some teams rely heavily on their sharpshooters to win high scoring games in the regular season. The most important player on the ice in the postseason is each team’s goalie. In the same way that a starting MLB pitcher can shut down even the most potent hitting team, a hot goalie can carry a team deep into the playoffs. It can also open up some great opportunities to cash in on your total line bets
There are some basic rules to keep in mind when betting on NHL total lines concerning overtime. While any results in overtime will not have an impact on individual third-period lines, they will have an impact on total game results. For example, if you are betting on the OVER/UNDER for total goals scored in the third period of a game, that bet will be graded on just the 20-minute period of play. If you are betting the OVER/UNDER on the total line for the entire game, then overtime results apply.
Regular season games are decided by a shootout if the game remains tied after one extra period of play. The winner of the shootout will have one goal added to its final score. NHL playoff games continue to play in overtime until a winning goal is scored without the use of a shootout.
