Betting on the National Hockey League (NHL) is a favourite pastime for many sports enthusiasts in Canada, and Bodog provides an excellent platform for NHL betting.
What are NHL Odds & Betting Lines at Bodog?
Bodog provides a comprehensive betting platform for NHL games, offering a wide range of odds and betting lines. Here’s an overview of some common types of NHL betting lines and odds you might find at Bodog:
|Moneyline||This is the most straightforward type of bet where you simply choose which team you think will win the game. The odds are represented in positive and negative numbers. The team with negative odds is the favorite, indicating how much you need to bet to win $100. The team with positive odds is the underdog, showing how much you could win if you bet $100.|
|Puck Line||This is similar to point spread betting in other sports. In most cases, the puck line in hockey is set at 1.5. This means that the favorite team must win by more than 1.5 goals (essentially 2 or more goals) for a bet on them to pay out. Conversely, the underdog team must lose by less than 1.5 goals or win the game outright for a bet on them to pay out.|
|Over/Under (Totals)||With Over/Under bets, you’re not betting on which team will win but rather on whether the total number of goals scored by both teams combined will be over or under a specified number.|
|Futures||These are bets on events that will happen in the future. For example, you might bet on which team will win the Stanley Cup, or which player will win the MVP award. The odds for futures bets can change throughout the season.|
|Prop Bets||These are bets on specific events within a game. For example, you might bet on which player will score the first goal, or how many saves a goalie will make.|
|Live Betting||Bodog also offers live betting, where the odds can change rapidly as the game progresses. This allows you to place bets based on what’s happening in the game in real-time.|
