Welcome to the Sportsbook Review section of NHLBettingTips.com.  Here you will learn which betting sites I recommend for NHL bettors, with links to the full reviews.

NHL betting has grown online over the last several years as sports betting has become more socially acceptable and online bookmakers have become seen as more legitimate business that NHL fans should feel comfortable trusting their money to.  Many NHL sports bettors from Canada still bet through proline or other government run sports betting programs, but the truth is that placing the same wagers online will often payout close to double what you can win through proline.  Below are short reviews of four of the best sportsbooks online.  Some of the sites do only accept players from specific countries, so read the short review under each of the sportsbooks headers for a full breakdown.  That said, 5Dimes, our top rated site accepts players from everywhere in the world.

2 100% up to $125 Review Visit
3 Best Odds Review Visit

The betting sites in the table above are rated here from 1 to 4 in terms of how valuable I think they are for NHL bettors.  That said, I strongly suggest having an account with each of these sportsbooks in order to line shop between the sites.  You’d be surprised how much more you can win in a season just by betting the best odds possible for your picks each night.

I’ve given a bit of an overview of each sportsbook below as well, which you can read before deciding to check out the entire review.

#1. 5Dimes

5Dimes is our top rated NHL sportsbook (Read the full 5Dimes NHL betting review).  They are a trusted and respected online betting site where bettors from around the world can place NHL bets.  They often offer reduced juice on NHL lines, which makes betting with them very smart for bettors who want to find the best lines available online.  With their reduced juice lines you will win the same amount, while risking less than you would have to at the majority of other sportsbooks online.  5Dimes also offers a sign up bonus of up to $520.  If you deposit $100 or more you receive a 50% matching bonus, while any amount over $400 receives a 20% matching bonus.  Learn more about the 5Dimes bonus…


#2. Sports Interaction

Sports Interaction is a great online sportsbook that offers a wide range of hockey betting options, including many different NHL betting lines, as well as AHL betting, major junior hockey betting and betting options for many other hockey leagues around the world. Sports Interaction is primarily focused on the Canadian market and is making it extremely easy for Canadians to wager online. They currently do not accept American residents, but they are a very solid option for Canadians and other bettors from around the world.  Signing up through any link on NHL Betting Tips will qualify you for a 100% matching bonus up to $125, rather than the normal 10% up to $100!  If you have a friend who is already betting at Sports Interaction, don’t hesitate to enter him in the Sports Interaction refer-a-friend code field as this won’t affect your eligibility for the bonus.

#3. Pinnacle Sports

Pinnacle Sports ScreenshotPinnacle is the online sportsbook that provides the best odds on the greatest number of sporting events.  They are usually a close second to 5Dimes in terms of the odds on NHL games, but that’s because 5Dimes offers special ‘reduced’ betting odds on game day in the NHL.  Pinnacle doesn’t offer any flashy bonuses or promotions to their users because instead they simply focus on giving serious bettors the best odds day in and day out.  Most people who are betting large sums of money on a regular basis call Pinnacle home for this reason.  Click here for our full Pinnacle Sports review…

#4. Bet365

Bet365 ScreenshotBet365 is the biggest sportsbook online and it has become very successful over the years by giving the players what they want.  Bet365 has the widest range of sports available to bet on out of the sportsbooks on our list, and also some of the best promotions and bonuses for players.  If you are a sports bettor from Canada or Europe then you really should have an account with Bet365, even if it’s just to take advantage of their easy to clear sign up bonus and the many money back specials they offer throughout the season.  Check out our full review of Bet365 here….
