With less match ups in each ensuing round the stakes are only raised until one team emerges victorious and claims hockey’s most cherished prize, the Stanley Cup. Whether it’s the top seeded Blackhawks in 2013 or the LA Kings, who despite being the last team to qualify ended up winning the whole thing in 2012, it really is a tournament that any team can win.

Best Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Sites

Best Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Tips

No team that makes the Stanley Cup Playoffs is just happy to be there. With each round that passes some dominant teams will show us why they were so good in the regular season while other teams will get hot at the right time and overcome the odds to advance an extra round or two. Either way one team will get to boast of being a Stanley Cup Champion. 

No Matter if it’s a favourite or an underdog, when it seems like one team is well on their way to advancing, there too many cases of teams coming back to win including some recently coming all the way back from three games to zero down to winning the next four games and taking the series. 

With the best-of-seven series there are many factors to take into account. Home-ice advantage, momentum, style of play and recent historical game data are all key elements in a bettors decision. Bettors also have the choice on various sites of picking individual games, a whole series or filing out a complete playoff bracket. 

As the competition gets smaller with each round bettors can expect the action to only get bigger with additional prop bets to be made available with each passing round.

No matter what the bettor’s choice for action there’s an option to keep the excitement going even if your favourite team has come up short.
