These upsets by the underdogs are common enough to make betting on international ice hockey interesting as well as sometimes frustrating. Most national leagues are also somewhat evenly balanced now offering challenging betting and good odds to those who can predict the upsets.

The key to winning money when gambling on hockey is to know the leagues and teams you are playing on better than the people that set the odds at the sport book. Since it is rather common that underdogs win in hockey it can be very profitable to be able to predict those upsets. To do this a small amount of luck will help but nothing can replace knowledge about the teams, how their style of play suits the opponent, any injuries or personal issues among the players etc etc. The more you know the better is your odds of winning. This is why it is always best to only play on a small selection of games, the selection that is your specialty and that you got the time to know everything about.

Ie games where you think one or the other team has an higher chance of winning the match than what the odds from the sport book reflects.
