With hockey being played as one of the sports in the Olympics you might ask yourself exactly what the rules are. Well, although the rules are much the same, there are some differences in rules between the Olympic Games and the NHL games and they are as follows.
The key difference between the two is the size of the ice. At the Olympic Games players play on a rink that is 3.000 square feet bigger than the NHL rink making it longer and winder and there is more space between the end boards and the goal.
Penalty shots are the next difference. In the Olympic games a player may be charged with a penalty shot whether they have penalized another player or not.
Fighting is another difference between the two. In the Olympic Games any player that fights is given a match penalty and are ejected.
Shootouts are another difference. In the Olympic Games if a score is tied sudden death is played. In the NHL they use three players from each team to break the tie.
Icing is the next difference. In the Olympic Games it is not necessary for a player to touch the puck for icing to be called.

The world of the NFL rocked last week as it reached the peak of the season - the Superbowl!, It was a great run for both team. From the NFC, the Green Bay Packers came on top and went into the Superbowl week as the leading team to win it all. Most Sports Betting sites, as most Vegas odds maker gave the edge to them over AFC team rival the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Green Bay Packers were good all year, and even though they suffer tremendous injuries across the board, the knew how to respond and make a wonderful run all the way to the finals. The Steelers went into the bowl game for the 3rd time in 6 years, bringing great defense and one Ben Roethlisberger, The QB who was suspended in the first 4 games of the season, but was able to come through and guide his team for yet another run.
But the odds makers and betting sites were correct after all. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was magnificent once again, and brought home the Lombardy trophy for the 4th time, and the first in 14 years. (Brett Favre was the winner in that ball game off course..) I'm happy the packers were able to win and i think they have a team that can run for the next 4-5 years easy, and try and take multiple super bowls.
For the best betting tips, form a group of like-minded gamblers.
Betting tips NFL should be the name of my next preview of the NFL league. All the most enthusiastic gamblers in my area would assemble at the local bar to exchange tips, discuss the odds, and throw down that cash. And as a NFL gambling enthusiast, a similar group in your town could go a long way to getting that NFL money flowing into your pockets, while generating camaraderie and establishing a forum to trade tips and gossip. For those on their own, the digital age has made such groupings totally possible. These groups can help you vet the best sportsbooks, choose the best teams and compare the odds.

The best NFL betting tips I’ve heard involve seriously evaluating your tolerance for risk and using that as your guide.
The best NFL betting tips I’ve heard involve seriously evaluating your tolerance for risk and using that as your guide. A money line wager, where you just pick which team wins, is simpler and requires less consideration. It’s either win or lose. Those with a high tolerance for risk and perhaps a bit more NFL betting know-how can bet on the spread, which involves not only picking the team, but determining how many points that team will win by. Sportsbooks will provide the odds but you want to know how good those odds are. While you can probably bet on your favorite team easily, sportsbooks will also let you get into the game with match-ups between teams you are less familiar with.
Learn your statistics to better understand betting on the NFL.
Getting the best tips for Super Bowl betting requires more effort than just asking a friend. Even long time football followers do not make the best NFL predictions. So how should one go about doing it? A sufficient knowledge of the sport is crucial. However, the answer is in the statistics. Team and players’ stats show trends and give mathematically supported “tips” on how to bet. Each team keeps stats and a gambler can rely on various sportsbooks to crunch the numbers and provide the odds. Just remember that statistics, while incredibly useful, do not guarantee the outcome. They just provide great direction. Or if a gambler insists on listening to just his friends, hope that at least one is a mathematician.

For some, winning big bucks might even feel better than playing the sport itself.
NFL betting requires a certain amount of skill and knowledge of American football. However, the different types of sports betting can make it more or less complicated. A gambler can bet simply on who will win or lose, or he can bet on the spread, the difference in points between the two teams. One way to make good NFL predictions is to spend a significant amount of time watching and talking about the sport. Beginners should consider small wagers or participating in fantasy football as a way to learn about the teams and the players. More experienced gamblers should spend time comparing sportsbooks to see who is giving the best odds. With all the competition out there, it’s worth the time.
Sports betting is one of the most enjoyable ways to liven up a game or get your blood boiling while you watch what would otherwise be an average run-of-the-mill sporting event.

Guides for sports betting are made available online by some online casino USA parlours. But here are some basics ideas that everyone who wants to get into sports betting should understand.
Sports Betting 101 – The Spread
In sports, teams are rarely perfectly matched. Often times, one team has a distinct advantage over the other, and that can make straight bets on teams to win problematic. Sportsbooks employ the spread to even the betting field and make it possible to attract action to both the favorite and the underdog. If a team is favored to win, that team will have a negative spread. The team that’s expected to lose has a positive spread. A team with a spread of +5 can lose the game by four points, but still cover the spread. A team that is favored by five points (-5) will have to win by at least five points to cover the spread. To put it simply, take the spread amount and add it to the underdog’s final score, or subtract it from the favored team’s final score to determine which team covered. If the spread is -5 and the favorite team wins by exactly five points, the bet would be a push.
