NHL Odds and Lines – Latest Betting Odds For Each NHL Game

Get the latest NHL odds and lines for each game on the ice tonight, find spreads, moneylines, and totals.

NHL Betting Odds

There are various NHL odds and betting lines to consider when making your NHL picks.

NHL odds almost always include puck lines, moneylines, and totals; however, the top online sportsbooks also offer a wide range of game and player props.

You can find NHL odds by going to the “NHL” section and perusing all available betting lines. To dive into prop markets, click on the “More Wagers” tab under a specific NHL matchup.

Winners and Whiners provides the latest NHL odds for every match throughout the season, including Stanley Cup playoffs betting odds.

NHL Puck Line Odds

Puck lines are among the most prevalent NHL betting lines. Bookmakers set this line as a handicap to balance the projected difference between the two teams and to achieve nearly equal betting on both sides.

The betting favorite is indicated by a minus sign (-), while the underdog is shown with a plus sign (+).

Puckline odds are different from traditional point spreads in that the line is always set at 1.5. This means a favorite must win by two or more goals to cover, while an underdog must win outright or lose by just a single goal.

NHL Moneyline Odds

Moneyline wagers in NHL betting are straightforward. They involve betting on which team you predict will win the game.

Moneylines remove the 1.5 puck line from the equation; however, moneyline odds are weighted based on which team is favored. A bet on the favorite will result in a lower payout, while a bet on the underdog will come with plus odds, meaning the return is higher than the initial stake.

NHL Over/Under Odds

Betting on an NHL total differs from puck line and moneyline bets. Instead of picking a team to win or cover, you’re wagering on the total number of goals scored in a game.

For NHL total betting lines, you can bet either “the over” or “the under.” For instance, if the line is set at 5.5 goals, betting on the over means you expect the two teams to score 6 goals or more while betting on the under means you predict 5 goals or fewer will be scored.

Odds for NHL totals require a slightly different betting strategy since you don’t necessarily need to weigh the two teams against one another. Instead, you want to evaluate offensive/defensive strengths, style of play, and recent scoring trends.

Other NHL Odds

For those looking beyond the stadard NHL betting odds there are plenty of NHL prop odds to consider.

Popular NHL prop bets include first-period puck lines, individual team totals, and alternate lines that allow you to adjust puck lines/totals.

You can also wager on individual player performances, usually covering over/under on statistics like goals scored, assists, and saves. NHL prop odds vary by sportsbook, so it’s a good opportunity to shop around and find the odds/bet types you prefer.
