How to place bets in the NHL All-Star hockey tournament (Part 2)

Bets in the final match

NHL playoffs are an exciting time of the year and can certainly yield some great winnings if you use your hockey betting systems properly. One strategy is to place a lower value bet on the underdogs in the first two matches of the first round of playoffs.

This works because sportsbooks often put de-price figures on the chance of an upset, usually occurring on a consistent basis every year. It is a good idea to exploit this opportunity and gain from it since the trend is not looking like it will have chances in the near future, according to the statistics.

Think about the low stats for the final match

In the first three hockey matches in 3 vs 3 modes, no match has exceeded 7 goals. In the first year (2016), in fact, the Pacific team defeated the Atlantic team with a minimum score of 1-0.

The other two matches, one victory of the Metropolitan and one of Pacific, have 7 goals combined per team. So for those betting on NHL, be aware. The first matches of the round have a higher score, including a 10-3 Pacific victory over Central 2017.


While it may seem foolish not to bet on the top stars for the MVP award, recent history has shown that lesser-known players often achieve it. In 2018, for example, the young player from Vancouver, Brock Boeser, won the MVP. Wayne Simmonds won it the year before and John Scott the year before.

Superstars seem like they want to be better-looking guys, ignoring goals, setting the stage for others. Despite being voted captain in 2019, Ovechkin skipped the match to rest. Superstar players, especially those who have participated in many matches, usually do not attach much importance to this title, except for the first time.


It is not easy to predict a champion among four teams. Every team has a chance. But in general, teams with younger players and better offensive defenses will show the best. In 3 vs 3 formats, with an open-ice rink, you will need youthfulness and speed.

It was tiring to play 3 vs 3 – skating more than 5 vs 5. Younger players handled better. And, teams with defenders who can naturally skate are valuable, because they are better at competing in the defensive area than they are about attacking.
