However, the abundance of daily hockey lines actually confuses some gamblers who struggle to determine which matchups actually provide enough value to warrant a hockey bet. The best strategy to bet on hockey and overcome this challenge is to carefully assess the value of each matchup and determine what level of value is necessary for you to place a hockey bet.
To bet on hockey one faces a similar schedule as those gamblers who bet on basketball, because there are numerous matchups to handicap everyday. This wagering schedule is much different from football, for instance, in which nearly all of the wagering occurs on a single day each week. In many ways, the NHL wagering schedule is a benefit for those who bet on hockey because they do not have to handicap too many matchups at once and there are daily opportunities to bet on hockey. Nevertheless, in order to take advantage of this benefit when you bet on hockey you must have the skills to carefully manage your bankroll. Many gamblers who bet on hockey are actually harmed by the NHL betting schedule because they focus too much on daily betting consistency and ignore the need to look for value in each hockey bet. These bettors tend to feel as though they should place one or two wagers each day, without placing too many wagers on any given day. Unfortunately, when one chooses to bet on hockey in this way he will inevitably end up forcing wagers where they do not belong and then failing to place wagers on lines that offer good value.
To bet on hockey successfully one should not worry about placing a wager everyday. Not every hockey betting line offers value, so there is no reason to place a hockey bet on an unfavorable line. Similarly, there will be days when it makes sense to place a hockey bet on nearly every matchup on the board simply because there are lots of quality lines. Anyone who chooses to bet on hockey ignoring some of the best odds will naturally find it difficult to build his bankroll. In order to guarantee that you are focusing on value when you bet on hockey it can be useful to develop a very basic scoring system to assess your confidence in each betting line. As you establish your scoring system you should determine how highly you need to score a game in order to place a hockey bet on it. This way you will have an objective measure defining how much you want to bet on hockey matchups and you will become better able to ignore irrelevant factors as you choose your wagers.
