We provide bettors with a number of bonuses to boost their odds when placing a wager on the SHL action, or betting tips to help you pick the many of the markets and betting odds available being as competitive as possible.
History Of The Swedish SHL Ice Hockey League
Our sports betting specialists research found that the SHL was initially founded in 1975, and was immediately brought into effect from the 1975/76 season. Whilst the first couple of seasons featured just 10 ice hockey teams, this has expanded, with a number of 14 total teams playing in the competition nowadays.
Each regular season game of the Swedish Hockey League features three 20 minute periods with each team having to play a total of 32 games in each regular season. Those who finish in the highest six positions will qualify for the playoffs, which are the favorites for betting on.
The teams that finished between seventh and 10th will also play in a best of three series, as they battle for the two remaining playoff spots. The two ice hockey squads to finish in the lowest positions in the SHL will need to go through a process in which if they fail to win a number of playoff games, they will then be relegated.
Top Teams And Players Of The SHL To Bet On
Unlike many other ice hockey competitions around the world, the Swedish Hockey League features two potential winners each season, with one being crowned the regular season winner and the other being crowned the SHL playoff winner, and you can bet on this outright.
Of course, one team can potentially win both, however there are occasions where two separate teams are crowned champions. Swedish ice hockey teams that have proven to be successful in the division include the likes of Färjestad BK and Skelleftea AIK, which are worth betting on.
There have been a number of notable Scandinavian ice hockey players with many having earned global recognition for their skills. There have been multiple players who have scored over 500 points within the SHL, like Fredrik Bremberg (581 points), Johan Davidsson (561), Jörgen Jönsson (535), Jan Larsson (527) and Anders Carlsson (526) each having managed to surpass that figure.
