NHL Hockey Betting 101

Hockey Betting O <div style=

Hockey is considered by some the most difficult sport in which to wager on. When betting on a Hockey event you have the option of wagering either on the money line and also what is called the “puck line”.

The puck line is similar to the point spread used in Basketball and Football betting.

For example: San Jose Sharks is a -1/2 point underdog and team LA Kings is (e) even. If you wish to wager on San Jose Sharks you will be giving up -1 1/2 goals. If you wish to wager on LA Kings you will be given 1/2 goal. What this means is that if you were to wager on San Jose Sharks they would need to win the game by 2 or more goals for you to win your wager. If you were to wager on LA Kings you would simply have to have Team LA Kings win the game outright as there is no way to score a 1/2 point in hockey.

Hockey betting rules vary from book to book so make sure you check with yours to see what their policy is regarding ties. In this scenario if the game were to end in a tie, most honest books would void your wager and be a no action your money at risk will be refunded to your online sports betting account.
