It dawned on me that wagering on hockey was an option when I was watching Elitserien games online. One of their main sponsors is a government-run (I believe) sports book. I also saw a dude using his iPhone to bet while sitting in front of me at Verizon center. Thought I'd give it a try, and I've been betting on the NHL since after the trading deadline last season.
I use an online sports book and have had a modicum of success, though my winning percentage has dwindled since my book has (I guess) discontinued NHL prop betting. I made a killing betting that Viktor Kozlov would NOT score in a playoff game last year, for example.
So who else partakes? Share your fun times or dramatic losses or horror stories or rants against gambling!
