Betting On The Calgary Flames

[caption id="attachment_75997" align="aligncenter" width="620"] Betting On The Calgary Flames Betting On The Calgary Flames[/caption]The 2013/14 NHL season is well on its way now, but of course ice hockey betting fans started well before the action did. Many fans put down bets on who they think will be the winners of the divisions, conferences and the Stanley Cup almost as soon as the previous season concluded, as this is part of the excitement of this kind of gamble. However a side that won't be attracting too much attention are the Calgary Flames, as they are being considered as real outsiders by the bookmakers

The Flames are rated 275/1 to win this season's Western Conference, with only the Panthers coming close to these odds at 175/1. When you consider that the favourites for the Conference -- are the Chicago Blackhawks -- are 3/1-on, it is clear that the Flames have been given no real chance by bookies this season. The Stanley Cup betting situation is not much better for Flames fans, with the team ranked 500/1 rank outsiders for this as well. This suggests that if you are a fan and want to put money on the team, gambling on individual games during the regular season may be the best bet. Alternatively, you could just watch the Flames and play a slot game based around ice hockey instead.

Playing something like the five-reel ice hockey game Break Away, which you will find at such casino sites as http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk, will give you a way of combining the sport and the betting with less risk of losing your cash. Indeed with 243 pay lines, plus a wild reel icon (the official logo one) you actually have every chance of winning yourself a payout. The top jackpot with this particular game is $500, but most players should win something. Furthermore the exciting action -- as Break Away's graphics

truly capture the thrills and spills of ice hockey could be the perfect
tonic if things don't go so well for the Flames this season.
