If you are aspiring to be a bookie operating in Ontario, especially in major cities like Toronto and Ottawa, you should understand that hockey – particularly as it is played in the NHL – is going to be a major focus of your business.

And this is something that has to be handled very carefully. Bookies in the United States are aware that members of their clientele who wager on hockey as a major interest are generally pretty “sharp,” and it is a good thing that they have the benefit of access to the tools provided by the PPH service so that they can adjust the limits of customers who are proficient at hockey, make their own adjustments to the numbers, or decline to offer it at all, although be cautioned that such a thing might risk losing the player.

If you do not understand the “puck line” in addition to the money line and totals, you are going to be lost when taking action on hockey, because without question your customers are going to understand it. And in an area like Ontario, the hockey fans (and bettors) are about as knowledgeable as they are anywhere in North America.
