2019/20 Deutsche Eishockey Liga season will last until the end of April. For the next eight months, 14 German ice hockey teams will compete for the leadership in domestic competition. Online sportsbook news in Germany shows that two teams have the most chances to win but can be outplayed by an underdog.
EHC Munchen is one of the favorites by German DEL 2020 winner predictions
Munich Red Bulls Ice Hockey Club has one of the best odds on their victory in DEL 2020. The team’s chance to win is evaluated as 11/4 at Betsson Sportsbook. EHC Munchen started the new season with the confident victory over Dusseldorfer EG. The team outplayed their rivals with a 3:2 score, which allowed sportsbook analysts to consider them one of the favorites. Moreover, the club is a three-times DEL titleholder. Last year, it reached the final but was outplayed by Adler Mannheim in the final.
Adler Mannheim leads the best odds on German sportsbook sites
Adler Mannheim leads the bookmaker’s odds according to German DEL 2020 winner predictions. Despite the defeat in their first game, it remains one of the strongest ice hockey clubs of the country. It still has 23/11 betting odds on their victory at online sportsbooks in Germany.
The Mannheim Eagles won the Deutsche Eishockey Liga eight times, which is the best result in the country. One of the victories the club gained when DEL was the part of German Championship. Also, Adler Mannheim is the reigning champion of the League. The club gained a fantastic 4-1 victory over EHC Munchen in the final rounds and reached their 7th title.
Eisbären Berlin is the former champion that can make a comeback
The Eisbären Berlin club is one of the main underdogs of this year’s Eishockey Liga. According to German DEL 2020 winner predictions, the team’s odds to win are 7/1. As the former champions of the ice hockey league, Eisbären can make a comeback and win another title next year.
Eisbären Berlin shares the title of the most-awarded club in DEL with Adler Mannheim. Both teams have seven victories each but the “bears” hasn’t won the league since 2013. However, sportsbook analysts suppose that the club has enough experience to take the crown back to the capital.
