An important thing for every sports bettor is to have knowledge about the events schedules. For NHL there is no exception, that’s why at Online Betting Sports we share with you the latest news, updates and information about the NHL schedule.
Introduction to NHL Schedule
The NHL schedule is critical to determining which team has a shot at making a playoff push and which team will be selecting in the NHL lottery at the end of the year. Hockey attempts to make it as even as possible throughout as you will play inside of every arena at least one time per season.
Within the division, you are playing four games a year against five different teams while playing three games per year against the remaining two opponents inside the same division. Each team will also face off against the other division within the conference for three games each. Out-of-conference games also happen regularly as each team must play the opposite conference twice (once on the road and once at home).
Understanding the NHL Schedule
The NHL schedule will help you make some extra money along the way. Say you are looking at a team that is struggling’s schedule, and they play in the Western Conference but have a road trip against the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, and Tampa Bay Lightning coming up. It would be pretty easy to make some NHL picks and choose that team to lose the next three games. It works vice versa, too, as if a good team has an easy stretch of games, you would be able to bet them to win.
The schedule also helps with some futures bets as well. You will get extremely high NHL odds and can see when a rough stretch could potentially be and mark off some wins to see whether they have a chance to make the playoffs or even make a run at the Stanley Cup. The schedule is definitely an underrated tool that many people tend to overlook.
