How To Make Money Betting On NHL

 

The NHL has gone through many phases throughout its history, from explosive growth and expansion into the United States in the 1920s, to the so-called Original Six era from 1942-67, on to the many years of expansion starting in 1967 that saw the league grow to its current 31-team format.

The league reached today’s 31-team maximum with the addition of the Las Vegas Golden Knights in 2017. In 2005, the NHL implemented a salary cap, and with cost certainty in terms of player stipends, parity rules the NHL.

That can make it more challenging to wager on games since there are no soft touches on the schedule but the positive impact is that the educated bettor will still find winning wagers and when they do, the payday will be much more lucrative.
