As one of North American’s major sport leagues, betting on the National Hockey League is a year round event, with a wide variety of options. Once the playoffs have ended and a Stanley Cup champion is crowned, bettors are presented with a wealth of future prices for the upcoming season. Keeping up with these prices is important as the draft and free agency can have a sharp impact on the lines.
Once the season begins, bettors have some great variety when it comes to betting on the NHL. This includes money lines, puck lines and over/under betting. Over/under betting gives bettors the option to predict how many goals will be scored in the game. Most lines hover around 5.5, rarely falling below 5 and going above 6. When uncertain on who will win, but confident that a game is going to be a tight affair or a shootout, betting over/under can be the best option available.
Money and puck lines are the most popular methods of hockey wagering. Money lines give the amount of money that is won when $100 is bet on that team – this team is the underdog – and how much money must be bet to win $100 – this team is the favourite. Puck line let bettors get bigger payouts but adding a spread to the money line. If Tampa Bay Lightning are a +190 favourite over the Toronto Maple Leafs, a puck line of -1.5/+125 means a bettor needs to only wager $125 dollars to win $100. Of course if Tampa Bay only wins by a goal you go home empty-handed.
