How to Bet on Hockey at BetDSI

There are a lot of great options available at our sportsbook for betting on hockey. You can choose to bet sides, totals, parlays, props and Stanley Cup futures. NHL betting is done based on a money line so all you need to do is pick a winning side or a total. If you are looking for bigger payouts then you will definitely want to check out the NHL props and the NHL futures where you can get a great return on your investment.

Live Betting

One of the most exciting options in NHL betting at BetDSI Sportsbook is the live betting. Many games during the regular season and almost all of the games in the Stanley Cup playoffs include live betting. Bet on the games before they begin and then increase your wagering excitement by betting the games while they are in progress.

NHL Playoff Schedule

The NHL seeds teams from 1 through 8 in each conference. The first round which is also known as the conference quarterfinals has 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5. In the second round which is known as the conference semifinals, the teams are re-seeded. This is unlike the NBA playoffs where the 1 vs. 8 winner takes on the 4 vs. 5 winner. The next round is the Conference Finals and the final round is the Stanley Cup Finals where the conference winners player each other. All of the playoffs are best-of-seven game series.
