SHL (Swedish Hockey League) Over Under

The Swedish Hockey League (SHL) (Swedish: Svenska hockeyligan) is the highest division in the Swedish ice hockey system. The SHL is currently composed of 14 teams.

The title of Swedish Ice Hockey Champion, as well as the Le Mat Trophy, have been awarded to the winner of the SHL playoffs since the league's inaugural 1975-76 season. Though there were other competitions that gave the title since 1922.

In SHL over under betting, you are wagering that the game's number of goals would either be over or under a specified total. An SHL over under bet looks like:

Djurgardens IF Over 4.5 -132
Brynas IF Under 4.5 +112

In the example above, "Over" is the favorite, indicated by the "-" (minus). Betting $132 on "Over 4.5 goals" wins you $100 if the game's total goal is five or more. Meanwhile, "Under" is the underdog, indicated by the "+" (plus sign). Betting $100 on "Under 4.5 goals" wins you $112 if the game's total goal is four or less.

The winner of the game is irrelevant to the outcome of an SHL over under bet. All that matters is the total number of goals scored.

The SHL was founded in 1975 as Elitserien (Swedish Elite League or SEL), and initially featured 10 teams. By the 1987–88 season, the league expanded to 12 teams.

The SEL was renamed the SHL in 2013. The following year, the league expanded to 14 teams and a new format for promotion from and relegation to HockeyAllsvenskan (the second tier league) was introduced.

The SHL regular season is played in a round-robin format, where each team plays a total of 52 games. Points are awarded for each game, where three points are awarded for a win, two points for winning in overtime or shootout, one point for losing in overtime or shootout, and zero points for a loss in regulation time.

At the end of the regular season, the team that finishes with the most points is crowned the league champion and is awarded a prize sum of 1,000,000 SEK (approx. 150,000 USD) as a bonus. The six highest-ranked teams by points qualify directly for the playoffs.

The four teams ranked 7–10 play a best-of-three series and battle for the two remaining playoff spots. The two lowest-ranked teams after the regular season have to play in the relegation and promotion series Kvalserien in order to qualify for the next season of the SHL. Before the 2013–14 season, the eight highest-ranked teams qualified for the playoffs.
