The pause of the 2019-20 NHL season due to the COVID-19 pandemic has caused hockey fans and bettors around the world to go more than three months without having any action to wager on. In its place, one sportsbook has created an alternative virtual option: simulated NHL 20 games.
Sportsbook is offering odds on NHL 20 sims, with the June 19 schedule consisting of the Edmonton Oilers taking on the Nashville Predators.
June 19 NHL 20 Simulation Odds
|Edmonton Oilers||+105||+1.5 (-200)||OVER 7.5 (-150)|
|Nashville Predators||-140||-1.5 (+150)||UNDER 7.5 (+115)|
Odds as of June 19 at Sportsbook
Oilers-Predators gets underway at 6:30 p.m. ET.
With real-life sports on hold, simulation sports are all the rage now. The shop recently started running daily Madden sims, with an average of three to five games per day. On March 31, NBA 2K20 kicked off, as the Los Angeles Lakers easily defeated the L.A. Clippers 111-79.
On May 4, the sportsbook entered the virtual soccer world by launching daily FIFA 20 simulations. Make sure you’re up to date on the video-game soccer matches by visiting our FIFA 20 sims article.
All-Star Mode Makes for More Competitive Games
Settings-wise, all hockey sims are conducted on superstar mode and the periods are 10 minutes. In terms of rosters, the lineups for every team are completely up to date to reflect the current rosters across the league.
This article will be updated daily going forward with the odds on every hockey sim on the board. To learn more about wagering on sim sports, check out our How to Bet on Simulation Sports piece.
