Stanley Cup Finals: Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues Series Price and Preview

I’ve got a sportswriter’s confession. A grumpy one. My upbringing was in the St. Louis area, so I’ve come to know the sports culture in my native city to some extent. It’s not all peaches and cream – nor can we expect nothing but bouquets and good wishes from boiled-in-oil Beantown hockey fans during the […]

Team USA vs Team Russia: IIHF Worlds Medal Round Preview and Predictions

Well, well. If it’s not exactly the party we thought they’d be throwing in Bratislava. It’s just happening a tad early, maybe. The new playoff-seeding system at the Ice Hockey World Championship was designed to prevent gold-medal favorites taking on their fiercest rivals in elimination matches right away. But the IIHF can’t do anything about […]

San Jose Sharks vs St. Louis Blues: Series Price and Game 1 Odds Analysis

Spring should be any sportswriter’s favorite time of year to cover pond shinny. The NHL’s pretenders and overconfident favorites have all been shucked out of the way, leaving 4 excellent clubs to contend for Lord Stanley’s Cup. The game is in full swing in Europe too. Another IIHF World Championships cycle has begun, and a […]

Hidden Factors in Ice Hockey Betting

There is a phenomenon in American ice hockey in which fans who had searched for a reason not to cheer the hometown NHL club suddenly start looking desperately for reasons to do so. It usually involves a bad team that begins the year 22-10 or 25-14, and temporarily leads the division. (Caller on talk radio) […]

The 4 Longest-Shot Underdogs Ever to Win the Stanley Cup

Many American sports handicappers still live in Las Vegas out of habit. The phenomenon creates a nice loophole for bloggers like myself. We tend to use “Vegas” as a shorthand for an entire community of oddsmakers. “What does Vegas think?” Obviously, Las Vegas is a city, not a person…it can’t “think” anything. The internet gives […]

IIHF World Championships: Betting Guide and Predictions on the Top Nations in 2019

I’ll admit that I can be a bit of a nag about the Ice Hockey World Championships, especially to my friends who prefer club hockey. I can’t help but think of little excuses to bring up the international game. “Well, a silver lining of that team’s playoff loss is that so-and-so can play for Sweden […]

2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Seeding, Series Prices and Futures Bets

It is impolite to try to read the minds of one’s readers. But this writer has a pretty fair idea what casual North American hockey fans and NHL junkies have been opining about our LegitGamblingSites.com shinny blog. “Enough with this European and IIHF stuff. Let’s get on with the real previews!” You have to admit […]

How to Anticipate Empty-Net Goals in Ice Hockey Betting

It seems like every genre of point-spread and Over/Under betting comes with its own special set of pitfalls. In basketball, a “dead under” result or a thin cover by the underdog can be erased with a foul-o-rama in the final seconds…or even OT. In soccer there’s always the chance of a penalty or a handball […]

Stanley Cup Futures Betting: Potential NHL Playoff Sleepers in 2019

I’ve been publishing a lot of material on overseas hockey on the blog, and there’s probably a few fans who read and think LegitGamblingSites.com is “hating on the NHL.” By no means do I intend to downplay the importance of the National Hockey League when it comes to pond shinny. The NHL is the greatest […]

NLA Futures: Gambling on the Hottest Upstart Hockey League in Europe

What was it a Jamaican bobsledder said in Cool Runnings, “Forget the Swiss?” That would be a bad idea for hockey handicappers…whether or not their profits are tied to the NHL. There are sports in which North American pros are the class of the entire world. These include basketball, softball, women’s ice hockey, and of […]

Improve Your International Hockey Betting by Handicapping the NHL This Spring

I’m quitting the NHL. Who gives a crap. The games aren’t best on best. I went to see the Buffalo Sabres, and they didn’t have every Hall of Fame candidate who’s ever been with the franchise suited up and on the ice in his prime. The opponents were even more disappointing. It was the Washington […]

2019 World Junior Championships: Futures Odds and Over/Under Betting on Holiday Hockey

By hook or crook the NHL just keeps on rolling. Its national fan base isn’t as rabid as those of college football or basketball, but local supporters in each market are crazed beyond belief. The league doesn’t do as good of a job hoarding the best players in the world as the NBA or the […]
