The team with the most titles in the Finland Liiga are the Tappara (Tamhockey Oy) with 14. Throughout the season and the even more so in the playoffs, you will find a great selection of Finland Liiga betting odds. These odds will tell you the amount of winnings you could take home, or how likely it is for your bet to win. Depending on your odds preferences, you may view the odds in a few different display formats on the sportsbook – there are American odds which typically are presented in a (+190/-110) format, decimal odds or fractional odds.
When it comes to these Finnish SM-Liiga odds, you will want to learn how to bet on ice hockey first. The most basic ice hockey betting option is the moneyline wager, which is simply picking the outright winner.
If you want to make things a little more interesting, you can find some Finnish Liiga point spreads on the desired game. The point spread allows the underdog an imaginary lead before the game starts, usually a low number or one or two goals, which means the underdog needs to win or lose by less than that number of goals. You can also bet on the favored team, and they will need to win by more than that number of goals.
Totals betting allows you to bet on the final outcome, but without picking between the two teams. You are betting on the total amount of goals that both teams will score collectively. You simply decide if you think the total will be over or under the set betting line. If you’re looking at a game and the total is 4.5, you will have to choose if you think the over will hit, which means you think there will be more than five goals, or the under which means you think there will be less than four goals total.
