How Do NHL Betting Lines Work?
Here's how some additional information on NHL lines and odds:
- Puck line: The puck line bases bets off the premise of whether a favored team will either win by 2+ goals or underdog will lose by a goal or less. For example, on Thursday night, Boston was -125 on the puck line to defeat Anaheim by two or more goals. Anaheim is +105 on the flip side to lose by a goal or less.
- Totals: Totals can involve game or team totals. For example, the game total for Boston and Chicago on Tuesday night was 6.5 goals. The team combined for three goals so the over at -110 did not connect as three is far less than 6.5.
- Player Props: Player props can involve even more lines for some extra wagers. Say Brad Marchand has an Over of 3.5 shots at Even. That means if Marchand fires four or more shots on goal, a better wins exactly double their bet.
- Futures: Futures in hockey can involve a wide spectrum from simply making the playoffs to winning the Stanley Cup. Boston is now tied for fourth to win the Eastern Conference at +750 with the New York Rangers for example.
