Hockey can be exciting to watch. What makes it even more exciting is betting on it. Even if you are not a wild hockey enthusiast, having a wager on a hockey game will make it worth watching. There’s a good deal of money to be made in betting on hockey. The season is filled with betting opportunities. Today, I will go over a few hockey betting pointers. Use these to give yourself a better shot at cashing in winning tickets.

Point One: Pick the Winner

No, I am not trying to be Mr. Obvious. What I mean by this is don’t second guess yourself. Some hockey bettors second guess themselves and end up losing more times than they win. Don’t worry about how many games a team has won or lost in any situations. Streaks can continue for a long time and they will continue until they are over. Don’t get fooled. Simply decide which team is better and throw your money down.

Point Two: Money Management

Speaking of money, here’s an important point. Never bet more than you can afford to lose. Better yet, decide how much money you will bet per game and stick to it. Here’s an easy way to do it. Decide how much you are willing to lose for the whole season. Let’s say that amount is $1,000. Next, decide how many bets you want to play at a minimum. Let’s say 100, which is generally one a day or so. $1,000 divided by 100 is $10. Your betting unit is $10. It’s pretty simple from here on out. Bet $10 every time you make a wager.

Point Three: Buying Sports Picks

The world is full of “pro” sports handicappers willing to sell you their winners. Most of these services are quite pricey. If you are a smaller player, you should never buy sports picks. Doing so will eat away any profit you made. Let’s say you are a $10 player and bet 100 times at a 53% winning percentage. Your end of the road profit can be evaporated if you buy just one sports pick at $25. Most sports bettors don’t think about this. They simply rush out to win for that day. If you do this, you are making the sports handicapper money–not yourself.

Start with these three hockey betting tips to get on the road to winning. Once you have them down, start to expand your horizons. Betting is an ever-evolving process. Good Luck.
