How do NHL Odds Work ?
Sportsbooks use NHL odds to calculate winning wager payouts. NHL odds include moneyline, puck line, and over/under.
Moneyline odds show a team’s chance of winning. The favorite’s odds will be minus (-) and the underdog’s plus (+). For instance:
Maple Leafs +105
If you bet on the Blackhawks, you must wager $125 to win $100. If the Maple Leafs win, you’ll get back your $100 stake and your $105 profits, totaling $205.
Puck line odds indicate the possibility of a team winning by a specific number of goals. The favorite’s puck line odds will be minus (-) and the underdog’s plus (+). For instance:
Blackhawks -1.5 (+165)
Leafs +1.5 (-195)
If you bet on the Blackhawks, you’ll need to wager $195 to win $100. If the Maple Leafs lose by one goal, the bet is a push and you get your money back. If the Maple Leafs win or lose by less than one goal, you’ll earn back your $100 stake and $165 in profits.
What is Moneyline in NHL Betting ?
Moneyline bets in NHL betting involve picking the game winner. The underdog’s odds will be +, while the favorite’s will be -.
The moneyline for the Boston Bruins-New York Rangers game is:
Bruins -150 Rangers +180
The Bruins’ odds are minus because they’re the game’s favourites. Bet $150 to win $100 on the Bruins. If the Bruins win, you’ll get back $150 and $100 in winnings.
The Rangers are the underdog, therefore their odds are +. If you bet $100 on the Rangers and they win, you’ll get your $100 back plus $180 in profits, totaling $280.
To place a moneyline bet, pick the winning team and place your bet. This is normally done at a sportsbook or online.
