Swedish Hockey League Betting Odds Comparison

The Swedish Hockey League is one of the leading ice hockey competitions in Europe, with fourteen teams competing over fifty-two matches to determine the regular standings. The top six teams progress to the quarter final stage of the tournament, while the teams between seventh and tenth go through to the eighth-finals.

The teams that finish in eleventh and twelfth simply retain their SHL status for another season, while the teams who occupy the lower two places in the Swedish Hockey League means that they go into the relegation play-offs.

Who Will Win the 2019/20 Swedish Hockey League?

Last year, there were two outstanding teams in the regular season of the Swedish division, with both sides amassing 101 points and they were Farjestad and Lulea Hockey. As expected, these sides are among the favourites to claim the overall victory this time around.

However, it was Frolunda who were able to come through the play-offs to actually become champions, with a 4-2 victory over Djurgardens in the final ensuring that they were kings of Sweden after previously beating Lulea in the semi-finals by a 4-1 scoreline.

As for Farjestad, they suffered an agonising semi-final defeat against Djurgardens in their last four match by a 4-3 scoreline and will be determined to make amends this time around.

The bookmakers make champions Frolunda the 6.00 favourites to win the 2019/20 title, with Lulea and Farjestads trading at 6.50 and the same price is applied to Vaxjo Lakers. Some might think that Djurgardens are the value at 8.00.

How to Bet on the 2019/20 Swedish Hockey League

The bookmakers such as bet365 create a huge range of betting markets when it comes to the individual games that take place during the season. The first available market is the Money Line, although that is quickly followed by the Total and Line markets.

The Money Line is quite simply when customers bet on which team win a respective ice hockey match. Sometimes a match is regarded as competitive and you might find that both teams are trading at 1.90 to win, especially when it comes to the play-off games.

Alternatively, you might find that there’s one team who are trading at a short price when it comes to the Money Line and it therefore pays to look at the Line market where you can back one of the teams receiving or having a handicap applied.

You might find that the favourite is 1.90 but with a -1.5 handicap which means they would need to win by two or more in order for the bet to prosper. Alternatively, the outsider could be the same price with a +1.5 handicap and they would simply need to avoid defeat by two or more.

Bet In-Play on the Swedish Hockey League

Several bookmakers are committed to offering In-Play betting odds when it comes to every match throughout the 2019/20 Swedish Hockey League season. That means you can get on the games as they take place and place bets on the constantly changing live markets.
