On the latest episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast Brian Blessing and Cam Stewart take a look at the highly anticipated return of the NHL. We finally have an opening date of July 10 for training camp. But the NHL “Hub Cities” still must be named if actual games are expected to start in August. The guys have plenty to say about getting the puck dropped on this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast.

The NHL Return Faces Potential Border Battle

Testing remains an issue with Canadian based teams having different COVID-19 testing standards than teams located in the USA. This could mean the NHL return will be based in American Hub cities due to less restrictive rules in the US. Speaking of restrictive rules, Canada could be rewarded with the entertainment of single-game betting soon by the government, and Cam would love nothing more!

The Long Break: Which NHL Teams Were Hurt, Helped

Brian and Cam discuss which teams could be hurt or helped by the long break. Vegas is a team that had strong momentum when the NHL regular season stopped, and that momentum will be hard to jumpstart in August at a quarantined location. Listen now to this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast for Brian and Cam’s deep dive into the variables to consider.

Odds on Fairy Godmother to Influence Outcome of 2020 Stanley Cup

Another probable factor to consider is the likelihood of one of the “extra” teams going on an unexpected roll. Perhaps the Montreal Canadiens or Chicago Blackhawks will be rocking Cinderella skates. All told, the guys think that we could see high scoring games and underdogs that bite hard with sharp teeth. Fire Wagon hockey should especially be the norm at the start. Meanwhile the guys really like the chances of the Winnipeg Jets and New York Islanders. Listen now to this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast for Brian and Cam’s cases for the dogs with their reasons why.
