College Hockey Betting Online: If you’re looking for the best advice for ice hockey odds, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook we’re previewing the Frozen Four Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship, which will be held on April 7th and 9th, 2016, at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida, featuring Providence, Boston University, Quinnipiac and North Dakota.
Providence is the defending champion of the Division I men’s ice hockey tournament and will aim for a return trip to the Frozen Four. The final four teams will meet at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida on April 7th and 9th, 2016. Providence isn’t the highest-ranked team in the country currently but is on the short list and should certainly be one of the favorites to advance to the Frozen Four in ice hockey odds.
Providence won last year’s national championship by defeating Boston University in the finals by a score of 4-3. Providence doesn’t have the same illustrious history as Boston U. as this was Providence’s fourth appearance in school history but it did come away with the program’s first title. Providence was 16-4-4 through 28 games this season and ranked fourth in the country, so another run to the Frozen Four is not unexpected. Boston is one of the perennial powers in college men’s ice hockey, as it has 22 career Frozen Four appearances and five career championships. The most recent one came in 2009 when it knocked off Miami. Boston University has been a fixture in the top-10 this season but doesn’t look quite as strong as last year.
One of the best teams in the country is Quinnipiac. It only lost once in its first 25 games to grab the No. 1 ranking in the country. Quinnipiac finished as the national runner-up in 2013 and is now zeroing in on a return trip to the Frozen Four and a national title. North Dakota and St. Cloud State are two of the other teams which have been the best in the nation in 2016 and could be Frozen Four participants.
Boston College is a top-5 team once again and will look to break a tie with Michigan for the most Frozen Four appearances of all-time. Both programs have made it 24 times in history. Boston College has five career national championships. The most recent of which came in 2012 when Boston College knocked off Ferris State by a score of 4-1. Some of the other recent champions included first-timers Yale, Union and Minnesota-Duluth. That should give the lesser-known programs some hope, as they were able to sneak through and knock off the traditional powers in the Frozen Four.
Defending champion Providence should definitely be in the mix for another Frozen Four berth, as will Quinnipiac, Boston College and Boston University. It will be quite the journey and it’s always intriguing to see how the tournament plays out and which teams advance to the semifinals in ice hockey odds.
