The hockey mentioned here is actually called field hockey, while in the USA & Canada “hockey” is regarded as ice hockey. The origin of land hockey or field hockey goes back to the former British colonies in India & Pakistan (which dominated international hockey at that time). The hockey rules were published in 1852 and are called “Rules of Harrow”.
In our hockey betting section you will find rules, tips, betting options and the best betting providers for this sport.
Similar to football, the teams consist of 1 goalkeeper, 10 field players, where you can change 5 times, and in indoor hockey, which is played during the winter on a smaller field is based. This sport is not body concrete, because a player may neither be pushed away nor fouled one must try alone with his technical means to score a goal. A game lasts 2 x 35min. in the hall 2 x 30 minutes.
Offer for hockey bets:
The offer is very similar to the ice hockey bets because these sports are very similar and have common roots. Unfortunately there are no events available at the moment because the Olympic Games were the last playable competition, but here I give you a small overview of bets offered:
- Hz Stand, Who gets the next penalty kick? Goal bet, Handicap bet, Over / Under HZ / Final stand bets,
- Who gets the next penalty corner? As in every other sport the clubs but the nations which are dominated by Germany, the Netherlands, Argentina and Australia are in the foreground.
- To be recommended are the Over / Under bets which usually lie at Over / Under 5.5, but to be aware one should in a country match between 2 major nations that is often the quality very equal and few goals therefore fall, so advise to go to an Under which is often achieved in such a match.
With different power ratio rather on Over 5.5, one should bet until the half time rather on Under since most goals are scored in the 2nd half time and the strengths of the weaker teams diminish. Handicap bets are also recommended here because very large goal differences rarely take place and the goal success similar to football not too often happens because on the playing field not as in ice hockey more players stand on the field, hockey is based on a very tight defensive and therefore a goal success is not too common and not every minute will take place.
Betting like Who gets the next penalty kick or corner?
If there are unequal teams on the fouls of the weaker team is easy to spot, but this bet has a risk that can not be identified by information retrieval. Goal bets are to be recommended with equal teams rather since with unequal teams the odds will fall out accordingly.
