What In-Play Markets are Available?

Betting in-play is popular on ice hockey games and there are a number of different markets to check out throughout the match whilst you watch live. Here are the most well known of those:

To win the match

This is the market where you are deciding who will win the game that is taking place. It goes live as soon as play begins and the early play will determine how the betting market fluctuates. Things like goals, teams going on a powerplay, or having a lot of pressure can swing the betting market one way or the other.

Top win the period

You can break an ice hockey game up into smaller segments by betting in-play on who you think will win a single period, instead of the entire game. Generally the team excerpting the most pressure at the current point in the game are going to be the favourites and odds on here.

To score the next goal

This is another great market to use if you feel like a team is putting on a lot of pressure and are beginning to take control of the game. You’re betting on exactly what you think you are and that’s the team to score the next goal. Some bookmakers will also allow you to bet on which player will score next as well.

Handicap betting

Any handicap market adjusts the odds based on a specified handicap for one team, in ice hockey that will be goals. If a game is one sided then bookmakers will change their handicap lines to keep the game competitive. This gives those betting the chance to play on a level playing field in a game that may be 5-0. By creating a handicap line of -7 that keeps the game interesting and allows betting to continue on the game.

Race to 2/3/4

This market involves backing who you think will score the required amount of goals the first. For example, on the three goal market you are betting on which team will reach three goals first. If you think a team will start quickly then backing them in the first to two goals market would be a different option to backing them to win the entire game.

Total Team Goals

If you want to place a bet involving just one team then the total team goals market may be for you. This starts as a four way market, 0 goals, 1 goals, 2 goals or 3 or more goals but where it gets interesting is when the lines change as goals are scored.
