Hockey Futures

Hockey futures are bets on outcomes that will occur in the future and require a series of events to unfold.  The most common hockey future bet is wagering on which team will win the Stanley Cup.  You can place your wager on the Stanley Cup champion at any time throughout the year.  The odds will vary depending on how the season is unfolding for each team and as the public’s views of each team’s playoff chances develop.

Some other hockey futures bets include betting on the conference champion, the division winners during the season and which team will win the Winter Olympics gold medal.  I’m a fan of futures bets because of the following reasons:

  1. You can get very good odds because there are so many different outcomes that could occur.
  2. The best team usually wins. (I find that in hockey any team can win a game, but for a team to win their division or the conference championship they have to, more often than not, be the best team)
