Swedish Hockey League betting odds suggest that either Vaxjo Lakers or Djurgardens will be crowned as the best Swedish ice hockey team.
And they are not discouraged even if they look at the SHL table right now. None of the favourites of online sports betting in Sweden are on top of the league after 12 matchdays. In fact, title holders Vaxjö Lakers have won only 4 of their first 12 matches. Currently they are standing in the 9th spot, which is quite humiliating for the favourites to win Swedish Hockey League 2019.
Swedish Hockey League betting odds
|Vaxjo Lakers – 3.50||Linkopings – 9.00|
|Djurgardens – 4.10||Malmö Redhawks – 11.00|
|Frolunda – 6.00||Lulea – 16.00|

Their biggest challengers, Djurgardens, are in a much more convincing form in the beginning of the season. The record-champion team have won 7 of their first 12 matches and are currently in the third spot. However, they are likely to improve as the season progresses. They didn’t get 4.10 outright Swedish Hockey League betting odds for nothing.
Should you bet on underdogs to win Swedish Hockey League 2019?
Online sportsbook sites in Sweden don’t really think it’s possible, but you might want to bet on Swedish Hockey League to be won by a rather unexpected team. For example, Linkopings are leading the league at the moment. They are not among the favourites: their odds to win Swedish Hockey League are 9.00. Do you think they will keep up the outstanding form till the end of the season?
Another overachievers are Malmö Redhawks. They are regarded among the weakest teams in Swedish Hockey League. However, they are still 2nd at the moment. Winning 6 + 3 matches from the first 13 matches is definitely something! The odds for Malmö Redhawks to win the league are 11.00. That would be a huge miracle, but oh well. Impossible is nothing, right?
Bet on Djurgardens to finally win the league!
Djurgardens have been Swedish ice hockey champions 16 times – the most championship titles any team has ever won. However, the last time they were the best hockey team in Sweden was in 2001. Last year they were pretty close as they reached the semi-finals only to be beaten by Skelleftea AIK, who failed to win a single game against Vaxjö Lakers in the final.
This year, they hope to finally make it. With the help Jacob Josefson, Jakob Lilja and Daniel Brodin, their high ambitions are only reasonable. These three scored a total of 16 goals and assisted 31 times. The team is doing great both individually and collectively, online sportsbook news sites in Sweden keep referring to them as favourites… Djurgardens have better-than-ever chances to win Swedish Hockey League 2019.
