National Hockey League (NHL) Preseason Betting Online

The smart hockey bettor with the proper NHL information can make a fortune betting into the soft NHL preseason lines. Betting on NHL has become very popular in Las Vegas Casinos and with Offshore Sports Books over the last couple years, in part to the NHL's television contract with ESPN.

Hockey betting lines are similar to baseball odds, Hockey odds and lines are also based on a money line. Example: If you had Detroit playing Chicago you might have the Red Wings at -160 and the Blackhawks at +140 in NHL preseason betting. These NHL preseason betting money lines are simple enough to understand. You are laying 1.6-1 on Detroit and getting 1.4 to 1 on Chicago. You can bet any amount within the limits set by the sportsbook at the corresponding ratios.

NHL Hockey preseason betting is just like other preseason sports in that a number of backup players are to make the big team while many top players get limited time. A good way to bet on hockey preseason action is to look at the organizations themselves in addition to the coaches, the goaltenders and teams that played tough in the regular season are always worth a look in hockey preseason betting.

Another thing to remember about hockey preseason betting is that goaltending is very important just as it is in the regular season. Teams with strong goaltending are teams to consider as you bet on hockey preseason games. Since the NHL has opened with more speed and scoring, teams that have solid goaltenders are always worth a look in hockey preseason betting.

The Stanley Cup
 
Original Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup was originally known as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup

The Stanley Cup, notably the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America, was donated in 1892 by Sir Frederick Arthur Stanley, Lord Stanley of Preston and son of the Earl of Derby. He purchased the trophy a silver cup measuring 7 inches high by 11 inches across for 10 Guineas ($50.00 at that time) to be presented to "the championship hockey club of the Dominion of Canada." The first team ever awarded the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association in 1893. More Stanley Cup Betting Info
