NHL Against the Spread Betting Lines

When it comes to betting against the spread, the NHL is your ideal destination. After all, these are among the most hotly debated topics among bettors. Betting against the spread works by placing a bet on whether your bet will ‘cover the spread’, rather than which team will win the game.

What does this mean? Well, the NHL team regarded as the favorite will be given a negative spread line, such as -2.5, while the underdog will be given a positive spread line, like +2.5. This means that if betting on the favorite, they need to win by more than 2 goals for your wager to be successful. Conversely, if betting on the underdog, they have to lose by more than 2 goals for your bet to come through.

You may be wondering why the .5 is used in this situation. Well, this decimal ensures that your bet will definitely produce an outcome and not become void – after all, your chosen team won’t be able to score half a goal!  

One of the main advantages to betting against the spread rather than opting for a money line bet is that when backing the favorite, you don’t have to commit so much money in your initial stake to get a big return. It also turns up the heat – your bet will be less of a foregone conclusion and you’ll be desperate for your team to score that one extra goal you need!

NHL Money Line

Everyone loves a good NHL money line bet. Here at our hockey betting odds hub we cover betting lines for all the big NHL games, as well as providing you with a range of sportsbooks to compare.

The old classic of US sports betting, these types of bet work by giving the favorite a negative line, such as -130, and the underdog a positive line, like +250. To win $100 while backing the favorite, you will need to invest $130. However, to win the bet by backing the underdog, you only have to invest $100 and you’ll receive a potential payout of $250.

For all the latest NHL money line odds, daily lines, and lines for tonight’s matches make sure to check out our NHL odds hub. You won’t regret it.

NHL Over/Under Odds

Over/under bets show that sometimes being neutral is the way to go. When it comes to this type of bet, our NHL odds and betting lines are based on how many goals will be scored in total rather than on which team will win. 

Our odds might cover a bet on over 6.5 goals to be scored in a game, or perhaps under 5.5. In this sense, you’re wagering on whether the total number of goals will be above or below the line, as set by the sportsbooks.

To win over/under bets it’s important to do your research. The quality of each team’s offense and defense is the first place to look, before moving onto more detailed analysis like each team’s history, potential line combinations, and form examination. This is where our NHL picks can really come in handy!

Your opportunity to bet on the game isn’t over when the first puck is dropped – far from it! Live betting is a great way to place a wager while the game is ongoing. It’s fast, high-octane stuff, and you’ll need dynamic NHL odds to stay ahead of the game and maximize your chances of making a profit.

NHL live odds can be offered in a variety of formats, including money lines, spreads, and over/under bets. For all the latest NHL live odds, Pickswise is the place to be.

NHL Prop Bet Odds

NHL odds for prop bets are often split into two main categories – team props and player props. It’s up to you to decide which to go for. In terms of the terminology itself, a prop bet refers to a specific action happening in the match Team props will include bets like when in the match a team will score a certain amount of goals, while player props revolve around individuals, and could be based on how many shots a player takes.
