After 2 weeks break, the Champions Hockey League is back for two more game days, and I’m here to do my best to provide you with some Champions Hockey League Betting Tips.

If you want more information about the CHL, then please read this article I wrote last week which covers what the CHL is, where to bet it etc.

Over the course of the next few days, we’ve got quite a lot of games. Here is the schedule:

Thursday, September 4th: Game Day 3: 14 games.
Friday, September 5th: Game Day 3: 8 games.
Saturday, September 6th: Game Day 4: 13 games.
Sunday, September 7th: Game Day 4: 9 games.

We’re going to try and do CHL Betting tips a day in advance at the least. This article is going to deal with the games taking place on Thursday September 4th, 2014.

At this time I can’t find a sportsbook that both accepts Americans AND offers CHL Betting unfortunately. I’m working with some on that but no idea if it will work out or not. If so, I’ll update this post.

For everyone else, I’d recommend http://www.Bet365.com.

There are quite a few sportsbooks that offer CHL, and another great one is Pinnacle Sports whose odds may be better on some of them. For all around I’d go with Bet365 due to bonuse, how good their mobile betting software is. But it pays to have an account at Pinnacle Sports as well due to the odds.

Quick standard disclaimer: CHL just started up. We’re not experts on it. We’ve did as much research etc as we can – but we’re betting this, and providing CHL betting tips more for entertainment purposes than anything else as what can we say? We miss hockey.

Be sure to read the comments on the article too as we’ve got a lot of European hockey fans who are very knowledgeable on the CHL as well. All team names below are written the way you will find them on http://www.Bet365.com

Sparta Praha vs Vaxjo Lakers HC: Over 5.5 Goals

2.00 odds on this one. A big price. However these teams already played and Praha won that one 5-2, with a 7 goal total. It was a very open game. More importantly, both teams were able to score a lot of goals in the initial games they played without a lot of shots. Both are top 10 in terms of scoring efficiency.

Vaxjo should be more competitive here, and we like this one to rack up the goals.

Frolunda HC vs Servette GE: Over 5.5 Goals:

Another price that we fancy, at 2.05 odds. In the first game where they played against each other it was similar to the above but a very competitive game with Servette GE winning 4-3. Frolunda HC are yet to play at home but will do that against Servette, and they’ve already proven they can score the goals on the road with their other result being a 7-1 victory. Nice to see some bloodthirsty action there!

Servette have won both of their games and look very good. They are lethal on the power play, and are 2.60 odds to win. That’s actually quite a valuable price. I’d have them more about 2.30 so there is value there. I’ll stick with Over 5.5 goals though for this game.

Double:

I also like Valerenga/Vienna Capitals to go Under 5.5 goals. This one is at 1.72 odds. Vienna Capitals have shown they are decent on offense but on the road is always different. Valerenga Oslo in their two games so far haven’t shown much on offense. Being home could be different but I still see it being Under 5.5 goals.

On the flip side – Stavanger Oilers vs Tappara Tampere. First one that stuck out to me for Overs – but it’s 1.57 odds which is no surprise. I wouldn’t be surprised if this game hit double figures!

So take a double of the Under 5.5 in Valerenga vs Vienna Capitals and the Over 5.5 in Stavanger Oilers vs Tamppara Tampere.

Always giving better odds on doubles and accumulators – we get a great price of 2.70 odds on that at http://www.Bet365.com.

    I think there is also value in Stavanger at home, odds for ML victory can be found up to 4.00 which is crazy given it’s still a preseason and Stavanger was killing it at home last year where they lost like 1 match out of last 30 played. It’s still a roadtrip for Tappara who never played in that arena either.

    About totals over, many matches were a blowout in the first 2 rounds, especially teams capitalizing on powerplay but we must also not forget it’s getting closer to the start of the season for most of European teams so I think they might give more focus on the defense. What do you think?

      Good point about Stavanger. I didn’t focus as much on domestic records from last year when doing these – but I’ve taken notes, to see how that will impact the games based on that. You’re right easily a value bet.

      Defense could be a focus but I’m not sure it will have as much as an impact. I’d love to figure out the algorithm the bookies are using for setting these lines. Like – Stavanger game Over 5.5 I can get that at those odds – but the same model has similar odds for the Sparta game. Should be interesting I’ve got about a million notes here for the other games and hopefully can improve for the forthcoming game days.

        It’s the same with Sparta Prague, traditional home team in Czech league last year. By the end of the regular season they had oppertunity to break the record for most points in regular season but lost the final game. They were rarely handing out points to the opponents and winning with a confident goal margin at home arena so I think they should beat Vaxjo tomorrow who will have to come from Sweden to Czech, quite the distance for teams which are not used of such traveling in Europe.

        I don’t know how they set up lines for the totals. They have probably included some aspect which we don’t have. It’s the same with KHL I noticed today. For example Severstal Cherepovets – Torpedo match tomorrow. Most of preseason they have played in over 5.5 and if you take a look at the history of mutual matches, it should be a clear over, yet the line is set at 4.5 and I have odds of 1.90 for that. Are you guys interested in KHL? I have wrote a preview of the Jokerit match, I will back them up tomorrow, I can send you if you wish.
