The HockeyAllsvenskan may represent the second tier of professional ice hockey in Sweden but the action is no less dramatic. Every season, this division features a mix of up and coming sides together with strong teams who were once playing in the top level but have since shown a dip in form. It all makes for a thrilling set up and Unibet back the HockeyAllsvenskan with a comprehensive set of betting markets and the potential to watch games live. Our streaming service at Unibet TV is available for all customers and it’s free and easy to tune in.
The HockeyAllsvenskan Set Up
The current format in the HockeyAllsvenskan sees 14 teams battle it out for the right to be crowned champions. Like a number of ice hockey leagues around the world, the HockeyAllsvenskan is divided into two sections with a regular season followed by a series of playoffs in the postseason.
The format mirrors that of the top flight division - the SHL - with all 14 sides playing 52 games during that regular season. At the end of that sequence, the campaign is over for the worst performing sides while those in first to eighth place will progress to contest a set of playoffs.
It’s a complex system from here on in with the top two teams progressing to the finals series. They will then play a best of five format with the winner progressing to the qualifiers and the loser facing additional playoffs. Eventually, after an extended process, the champions are crowned.
It’s worth studying the format in closer detail if you are looking to get involved in the SHL outright markets. Prior to the champions being elected, that set up gives us many hundreds of ice hockey games to look forward to across the campaign and every single match will be picked up by the betting markets at Unibet.
Along with that package of betting options, customers will find competitive odds plus the support of Unibet TV which will allow you to watch your stakes play out live in real time.
Best Performing Teams
The strongest teams in the HockeyAllsvenskan may not be involved in the division for too long, so previous success here is by no means a guarantee that the sides in question will lift the trophy moving forward. To help you identify a winner, Unibet will publish outright betting markets some time in advance of the new season and you can judge the favourites before placing a wager.
Naturally, we also recommend that you carry out additional research into form before staking in the outright markets but it could be helpful, and it’s certainly interesting to go over the list of former champions.
With the league having been formed relatively recently in 2005, there isn’t a lot of information to take into account but, among the previous champions are IF Bjorkloven, Malmo Redhawks, Leksands, Orebro and Sodertalje.
Whoever you decide to back, live coverage of the HockeyAllsvenskan season will be streamed via Unibet TV so you can follow your stake from start to finish.
Betting on the HockeyAllsvenskan
Alongside those outright markets for the overall winner of the HockeyAllsvenskan, Unibet will supply match betting for every game across the season. Moneyline markets tend to attract more interest but there will be a selection of prop bets for those who want more than just the result.
Ice Hockey can lead to a number of props so you may find side markets for Total Goals, Correct Score, Winning Margin and more. Remember too that most of those markets also transfer to the live section of our sportsbook for those who like to consider their in play options.
To watch the live action from the HockeyAllsvenskan via Unibet TV, you will need to be an existing customer with funds in your account. Alternatively, if you have placed a cash bet within the preceding 24 hours then you can still view the feed.
For the bigger picture, the stream can be accessed via desktop or laptop but, if you are on the move and need more flexibility, Unibet TV can also be picked up via all connected mobile devices. The choice is yours but remember to stay with Unibet for a great viewing and betting experience.
