NHL Odds and Betting Lines

Our experts have put together the following NHL odds and betting lines guide for new bettors and those familiar with hockey betting alike. Our aim is to provide you with the tools to help you understand a little more about the sport and how to bet on it with better success.

The basics of NHL odds and bets

Hockey is the national sport of Canada - it's more popular in the Great White North than any other sport. The NAtional Hockey League is the pinnacle of the hockey world with the Stanley Cup as its holy grail. This section will look at some of the basics of NHL odds and bets to help you understand how it all works.

Reading NHL betting lines

The moneyline is the system used for displaying NHL odds. It assigns negative and positive values to the outcomes of bets to indicate the probability of them happening.

Let's use the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning as an example. If the Leafs have odds of -110 and the Lightning +110, the Leafs are favorites to win. The lower the hockey odds are, the more likely the outcome.

How are winnings calculated

Calculating winnings relies on two factors: the odds of a bet and the value of a bet. Using the moneyline system, the game odds indicate the amount needed to bet to make $100 or how much you can potentially win from a $100 bet.

If we continue the example above, where the Leafs are -110 this indicates you would have to bet $110 to win $100. However, for the Lightning at +110, you would win $110 from a $100 bet.

Important things to consider when betting on the NHL in Canada

The legislation around betting on the NHL in Canada differs between the country's ten provinces. But it's not just the law that differs, with each province responsible for regulating sports betting and awarding licenses to operators.

This does mean that the NHL Las Vegas odds at certain sportsbooks in Alberta can differ from those available in Ontario. If you do a lot of traveling and enjoy betting on sports when you are away, you may have to check whether your preferred sportsbook is available for legal betting in your destination province. If it hasn't got a license then you will need to find a new sportsbook to bet with.

Types of bets you can find

There are many different bet types available when it comes to betting on hockey. To help you distinguish between them, here's a detailed description of some of the more popular bet types.

Moneyline

The moneyline bet is simple. You bet on the winner of an individual game between two teams such as the Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators.

Spreads

A spreads bet is like the moneyline with the addition of a handicap applied to both teams. The favorite usually has a negative handicap such as -1.5 and the underdog has a positive handicap of +1.5. The team you back has to win with its handicap for the bet to win.

Totals

Totals bets focus on areas such as the number of goals scored in a game. It works by the sportsbook offering a number such as 5.5. You have to guess whether the total will be over or under that value.

Parlays

Parlays are a collection of different bets combined into one. In order for the bet to win, every line on your bet slip must come in. Because the risk of a parlay bet is higher the odds are often enhanced compared to straight bets.

Prop bets

NHL Prop bets focus on the proposition of something that happens in a game rather than focusing on the outcome. These types of bets can focus on what individual players do - which player will be the first to score? - or can focus on a team - which team will receive the first penalty?

Future bets

Futures bets are more long-term bets where you can bet on the outcome of an entire competition rather than individual NHL games. For example, before the season even starts you can bet on the Maple Leafs to win the Stanley Cup at odds of +1200 with PointsBet. Below are a few examples of some other future bets you may find.

NHL FINALS ODDS

A bet on which teams will reach the postseason NHL finals to compete for the Stanley Cup.

NHL MVP ODDS

Betting on which player will be voted the MVP of the season by coaches, players and the media.

NHL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR ODDS

Similar to the above bet but focusing on the best rookie player of the season.

NHL DRAFT ODDS

NHL betting odds can also be given as to which players will be drafted into the NHL, including which position or round they may be drafted in.
