Great Time To Be A Hockey Betting Fan

The biggest series in hockey betting anywhere in the world is in full swing right now and most people outside of Canada don’t even know it’s going on.

The 2010 NHL playoff betting action has been some of the most intense in hockey betting history and no matter how the rest of the Stanley Cup betting action plays out it’s safe to say that NHL betting fans have gotten their money’s worth and then some this post season.

For anyone that has made a hockey bet during this fantastic stretch of hockey betting, it has likely been a highly rewarding experience.  With just about every type of twist and turn, unpredictable moment, outstanding team play and standout individual performances the 2010 NHL playoff betting truly has had it all.

From a sports betting perspective the playoffs have had everything a hockey betting fan could want and if anything this NHL postseason betting action has likely converted a heap of fans sitting on the fence about the sport and inspired them to make a hockey bet in the near future.

If you like upsets than this year’s NHL playoff betting was right up you’re alley.  There almost more upsets than in the hockey betting post season this year than series won by the team favored in the hockey odds –at least in the Eastern Conference betting action.  I mean how else could explain an Eastern Conference Finals betting matchup between a #7 seed (Philadelphia Flyers) and a #8 seed (Montreal Canadiens).

If you like come-from-behind hockey betting heroics how about the Flyers performance against the Boston Bruins in the conference semi-finals when the team erased a 3-0 series deficit and became just the fourth team in sports betting history –any major sport- to win a series after falling behind by such a large margin.

But if you’re a purist and like to see the NHL betting cream rise to the top than you can certainly appreciate the way the Western Conference betting action played out.  The top two teams all year long in NHL betting out west were the #1 seed San Jose Sharks (113 points) and the #2 seed Chicago Blackhawks (112 points).  Both of these teams proved their class in the NHL playoff betting action by reaching the conference finals.

And now in the Stanley Cup Finals betting action between the Hawks and the Flyers the sports betting action has been fast and furious thus far and this series has look of a potential seven-game classic, and who can complain about that?
