You just pay more to bet hockey if you like a favorite and get more money on the underdog. Hockey betting can be unpredictable. There used to be value in taking underdogs in hockey but it is more difficult now that there are no ties.
You used to be able to get value on underdogs as you bet on hockey when you had tie games but now if a game is tied it goes to a shootout and the better team usually wins shootouts. That has diminished the value of underdogs in hockey betting. The future of hockey will have gamblers laying more money with favorites because they want to win.
Most gamblers don't like laying big numbers when making an ice hockey bet but it may be something they have to consider. Since the NHL is no longer on ESPN and has moved to Versus the handle on hockey is much lower.
That doesn't mean you can't win money as you bet on hockey though since the games are still on the online hockey gambling board every night during the season.

It is clear that McDavid and Eichel will more than likely respectively go to the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres in the 2015 NHL Draft. But what about the other players that teams like Arizona, Toronto and Carolina will be coveting?
