NHL injury reports can leave bettors in the dark

03.24.2011     06:37 AM     Printer Friendly

Unlike the NFL, NHL teams are not mandated to disclose specific injury information on players. Teams are required to release injuries only if they player is expected to miss a game or is injured while playing. The reason teams remain so vague is to protect players from having their ailments targeted during games. Washington head coach Bruce Boudreau in response to Alexander Ovechkin's current 7-10 day hiatus, "He's sore."


"The NFL doesn't want a situation where bettors would be approaching players like the old days," says Sheridan, who sets the betting lines for all major sports at USA TODAY. "Say somebody had information that Tom Brady wasn't going to play then all this money is bet on the Patriots' opponent. The NFL wanted to make it above board."

"Comparing the money bet on the NFL with NHL would be like comparing the New York Stock Exchange to the Guyana stock exchange," he says.
