What is a DEL-1 betting tip doing on BETTINGFORMAT?
We here at Bettingformat hate sleep! There’s too much in the world of sports to limit ourselves to just soccer. Hockey is an incredibly fast team sport and one which is ideally suited for bets. We love crunching numbers, comparing teams and finding answers to questions. How does one team do at home versus how they perform on the road? How does the team’s goal balance look? There are a number of other factors we consider when we propose a betting suggestion, but we have to hold some of the cards close to the chest! We can tell you this, we refer to our odds assessment in order to propose suitable betting options for you. Finally, we just love thinking about hockey!
What should I keep in mind when placing bets on DEL-1 games?
Before we delve into that question, it’s useful to know how the league operates. As we mentioned before, no team in DEL-1 runs the risk of regulation. We should add, somewhat ominously, at least not yet. This is something of a double-edged sword. The good news is, teams with tighter budgets can compete in the premier class. The bad news is, money talks and teams with deeper pockets tend to enjoy greater success. When a team has more resources available, they can afford to recruit overseas players, they can hire the big-name coach whereas a smaller franchise must rely heavily on shrewd decision making and economizing contracts. That said, let’s move on to a brief overview of the season format. The regular season consists of a round-robin wherein all teams play each other a total of four times- twice at home and twice as the visitor. At season’s end, the top six finishers earn automatic berth into the quarterfinals, while teams finishing 7 through 10 have to fight through an extra round before reaching the quarterfinals. This play-in round is best-of-three, while all additional rounds are best-of-seven. Don’t worry, we’re getting to the betting! As you would expect, betting suggestions and predictions become more detailed as the season progresses and we are able to draw upon more meaningful statistics. By the time the playoffs come around, we are confident that we can provide you with analyses and predictions to help you make the winning bet. Along these lines, derbies are particularly intriguing. The Bavarian Derby between EHC Red Bull Munich and the Augsburg Panthers or between ERC Ingolstadt and the Straubing Tigers can be some of the most exciting games of the year. When placing a bet, it’s useful to know if a team participates in another league, as is the case for EHC Munich in the Hockey Champions League. When a player is injured, deactivated or reassigned to a national team, we will inform you as soon as that information becomes available to us.
Who are the favorites to win it all?
If it were that easy to say, sports wouldn’t be exciting, now would they? As is the case with most professional sporting leagues, it’s unwise to presume future success based on previous results. That said, there are a few teams that have enjoyed some measure of sustained success over the years: The Berlin Polar Bears have earned their share of league titles while the Mannheim Eagles have the distinction of leading the league in all-time total points. EHC Red Bull Munich has been a steady producer since joining the league in 2010. The Sharks of Köln / Cologne are not to be taken lightly, especially at home where their supporters can make life difficult for the visiting squad. Placing wagers on these games can be exciting because the betting possibilities often transcend the standard 1, X, 2 stake. We will always share our betting suggestions and results predictions to help you make the best wager.

What kinds of bets can I place on DEL-1 games?
As you can see from the graphic above, there are loads of wagering opportunities. While the final number is dependent upon the number of bookies accepting bets, we find that you can expect between 32 and 38 betting markets. In our research, we found a bookmaker offering just five betting markets on a DEL-1 game while another bookie had 23 on offer. We have decided that in the best interest of our readers, we will continue to utilize our odds assessment exclusively for bets 1, X and 2. Win lose or draw. In the future we intend to expand our analyses to cover the myriad exotic bets available. Bettors can place wagers on the over / under of total points, total period points, or the same criteria applied to only one team. Gamblers can place handicap bets, place a bet on total goals from 0 to X. What’s more, each of the bet can be applied to the three periods of any given DEL-1 game. The permutations are vast, indeed. Again, check with your bookmaker of choice for these exotic betting options, we will be here putting out the analyses and predictions you can count on.
Can I place long-term bets on DEL-1?
Yes! If you’ve got a feeling that one team is going to win it all, then you would do well to place a bet on that outcome at the start of the season. If that doesn’t work out, you can always get back in form by laying down a new wager at the beginning of the playoffs. We typically avoid predicting an overall winner early in the season, as we are committed to our information gathering technique and prefer to reserve our prognostications until we’ve combed through the data. This does not mean that we don’t have informed opinions! Check back with us frequently and read through the betting news to pick up hot tips!
Do exotic betting formats such as handicap, double chance and draw-no-bet exist in DEL-1?
We are pleased to report that these bets have a very happy home in DEL-1. Those listed above, plus many others, fall into the category of special bets. Below is a brief explanation of some of the more enticing special bets, but at this point, we call your attention to the link to the betting school where you can find detailed information on those bets and much more.
- Handicap: When you handicap a bet, you are effectively adjusting the odds by ‘giving’ a team a certain advantage or disadvantage. Sounds complicated, right? Hang in there and let us give you an example! You decide to place a handicap 1 : 0 wager. This means you’ve ‘given’ the home team a one goal advantage before the game even starts. Suppose the final score of the game is 2 : 2. Rats, a draw. But wait, thanks to your clever strategy, the betting result of the game for you is 3 : 2. While there are lots of ways handicapping a match can be a lucrative prospect, in the case of the DEL it’s best to handicap a winner. By placing such a bet in the DEL, the entirety of the game, including overtime and any penalty shootouts apply to the bet. Handicap bets can keep your wager in contention until the final horn sounds.
- Double chance: When you place a double chance bet, you will cash in so long as your chosen team does not lose. If they win or draw, you win. Normally you would encounter such an opportunity when two equally matched teams play. We typically do not endorse these bets as we tend to prefer the visiting team in such a scenario.
- Draw-no-bet: We have not encountered this iteration of betting market very often in the DEL-1. The draw- no-bet works a lot like the double chance bet, but instead of winning through a draw as you would in double chance, your wager is refunded. The most logical use of this form of bet would be in an instance wherein the odds only slightly favor one particular team.
When should I place a special bet on DEL-1 matches?
The best time to employ these types of bets is when the skill level of both teams is readily apparent. As you develop an experienced eye, you’ll get a sense of when to play the over / under, you’ll be able to make informed bets as to how many goal (if any) will be scored in any given period and so forth. Stay abreast of the statistics, because this form of betting can yield huge dividends.
