Some would say that it is a little early in NHL season 2013/14 to say for sure which sides will make it beyond the regular season to compete for the Stanley Cup, but this will not receive much sympathy for ice hockey betting fans. Making the right picks long in advance is considered part of the skill of outright bets, but one team that is unlikely to have been a big part of this gambling in 2013/14 are the Nashville Predators. It will not be easy for fans to acknowledge, but they are rated a real outsider team, both at division and conference level, and for the Stanley Cup.
Their actual form in the Central Division has been middling, rather than disastrous, with nine wins and nine defeats. They are bottom of this division with odds of 66/1. So not many will be betting on them for it, but that does not mean you should not place any bets on them. Their most recent division match saw them thump the leaders – the Blackhawks – by 7-2, indicating that they are more than capable of holding their own in one-off games. This was their second successive win, and judicious betting on them in individual matches could pay off, just as judicious gaming at the Lucky Nugget online casino and other such sites usually does.
While this may seem a strange comparison at first, it isn’t really, because more fans of sports like ice hockey are trying out these sites, due to the sports themed slot games they now offer. For instance, Break Away a slot machine with five reels; is all about ice hockey. These reels have images of hockey rinks, players, stadiums, pucks and other familiar sights, all in high definition. The game also has a jackpot ($500) as you would expect with a slot, as well as a huge number of pay lines (243), free spins, stacked and smashing wilds and rolling reels, all working to maximize your eventual payout. With all these bonuses on top of the basic slot game, it isn’t hard to see why NHL betting fans are flocking to play it
