PANAMA CITY, October 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Anticipating their biggest hockey season in the 14-year history of their company, BetOnline, the fastest growing sportsbook in the US, is offering more ways to bet on the NHL than ever before-and a promotion to ensure you get your bet back if a "miracle" happens on ice.
Besides offering the traditional ways to bet on hockey (money lines, puck lines, totals, props and futures), BetOnline will be offering additional wagers that are hard to find at other sportsbooks; including team totals, 1st period lines, 3-way lines and Live in-game betting.
BetOnline's Dave Mason explained all of the permanent changes to their NHL betting product for the upcoming season:
"The MLB season will be over in a few week, a long NBA work stoppage looming and football being mainly being a weekend sport - more players than ever will be looking for a sport they can bet on every day of the week - the NHL fills that void."
"We experimented with NHL Live betting last postseason and the numbers exceeded all of our expectations. Considering how fast the game of hockey is, Live betting is a natural fit; it's surprising that very few books offer it. And when we brought another Canuck oddsmaker on board, born a day after Gretzky was and in the same hospital, expansion in hockey was inevitable."
By betting the game Live, BetOnline players can bet on the money line, puck line and total well after the opening face-off. When a goal is scored, the odds will change dramatically. Hedge your bets and bet both sides to lock-in a guaranteed winner.
Besides Live betting, 3-way lines are the next most popular of the newer ways to bet hockey. With 3-way betting you choose either team to win by the end of regulation. Or if you think the game is going to Overtime, bet the Draw - for soccer bettors 3-way betting comes natural.
And back by popular demand is BetOnline's generous "What the Puck?!" promotion. If one team covers the 'over' all by themselves, 'under' wagers will be refunded.
"Our 'What the Puck' hits numerous times a week. Last year thousands of NHL bets were refunded, our players really love this one-of-a-kind promo," Mason stated.
The action starts Thursday as the reigning Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins host the Philadelphia Flyers on Versus. Bet it Live, only at BetOnline. Because you can.
