NHL All-Star Game Betting Lines

The NHL All-Star Game traces its roots to the notorious Eddie Shore, who blindsided Ace Bailey so hard that a priest actually administered last rites. With his career destroyed, the league decided to hold an all-star benefit game to help him out. Eventually, beginning in 1947, the event became a regular part of the NHL schedule.

Currently, NHL All-Star game betting lines typically revolve around having a good time, before the grind of the regular season kicks in once again.

How to Bet on the NHL All-Star Game

Multiple methods and types of bets exist for those who wish to try their odds on the NHL All-Star game. The new format of the game complete changes how people bet on the all-star game, opening up many new possibilities to make a bit of profit before sportsbooks and oddsmakers adjust to the new format.

Tournament Winner: After the first round of the tournament is completed, the two divisions that remain battle to see who wins the title. While there are no points up for grab for anybody involved, professional athletes tend to have an innate competitive drive, making them desire winning any hockey game, even if it’s mostly shinny.

All-Star MVP: Picking the player who will emerge as the All-Star MVP can end up providing a big payday with a bit of luck. The 2016 All-Star game was a fine example, as John Scott, who was demoted out of the NHL and didn’t actually play for a team, scored a couple of goals to become the only All-Star MVP out of the NHL.

Over/Under Bets: The number of goals scored in a single round or throughout the all-star game are two types of over/under bets that you can try out. Essentially, you’re predicting whether or not the total is above or below a number established by the sportsbook that you’re signed up with.

First Round Exit: With the new tournament format, half of the divisions will be eliminated after the first matchup. Betting on whether or not a team will make it out of the first round is a type of proposition bet that some sportsbooks will facilitate.

Bet On the NHL All-Star Game

The NHL All-Star game has cycled through various formats, including Wales and Campbell conference, east and west conference, North America versus the world and a single NHL team against the rest of the league’s best. When you bet on the NHL all-star game, you’ll need to make sure that you’re aware of the latest changes to the format of the game, especially after the success of the 2016 version of the event.

New Tournament Format: Previous to 2016, the all-star game always involved two NHL teams assembled into two sides for three twenty minute periods, just like a regular season game. The latest format is a drastic departure, with each game consisting of ten minute halves. Teams are assorted into their four divisions, with the eastern divisions and the western division playing one game to decide who gets to participate in the final championship game. Teams may only have three players on the ice at once, and fan voting can create an all-star out of anyone, including AHL’er and career goon John Scott.
