NHL lockout 2012 odds: When will the work stoppage end?

Jonathan Daniel

Bovada has set the odds for when the NHL lockout will end.

With the NHL schedule already cancelled through Nov. 1, there is a bit of optimism that the league could begin a condensed 82-game schedule on Nov. 2. Of course, that all hinges on the NHL's ability to ratify a new collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players Association by the end of this week.

If you are the kind of person who is inclined to place a wager on these kinds of things, Bovada has set the odds for you. As of this time, the odds are set at 3-to-1 that the lockout will end on or after Nov. 2, while another line has it set at 2-to-1 that the lockout ends before Nov. 2.

If you're the pessimistic type, the line for the lockout ending before Jan. 1 is currently set at 1-to-1, while wagers placed on the lockout ending after Jan. 1 is set at 4-to-7. As of this time, there are no scheduled negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA, so you probably want to account for that when placing your bets.
