Ice Hockey Odds

Puckline betting is ice hockey's version of the runline in baseball. Bookmakers will give one team a 1.5 goal handicap. This is the same as giving one club a 1.5 run handicap with baseball runlines.

You will often see it listed by your preferred bookmaker in the following way:

  • New York Rangers -1.5 2.90
  • Chicago Blackhawks +1.5 1.40

The puckline is not as popular as straight up moneyline betting. One of the reasons is that it is a difficult form of betting to succeed at. A team's potential against the moneyline is much easier to frame. Scoring events and margins in such a low scoring sport can tend to be more random than others.

Betting on the total number of goals scored in a game is popular. Typically the number of goals scored in a NHL games varies between 5 and 7.

So how can you win betting on goal totals in ice hockey? Do not give too much consideration to a team's goal averages. Averages can often give a distorted picture. Rather keep track of goal total occurrences. For example, games that featured the Los Angeles Kings might have had an average of 5 goals scored over their last 20 games. But what if two of those games only saw a single goal scored? The average of 5 goals is going to be distorted by these two very low scoring games.

Ice Hockey Favourites

There is a huge list of famous ice hockey teams and players. The most successful side in NHL history is Montreal Canadiens. In the Kontinental Hockey League, Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Ak Bars Kazan have been two of the more successful ice hockey teams in Europe and Asia.
