Hockey Betting Odds & Online Hockey Betting Action
There’s never a break with ice hockey betting at BetMGM. Whether it’s NHL betting lines, Kontinental Hockey League futures, or other international leagues, there are tons of options to choose from.
At BetMGM, your go-to online sports betting destination, our hockey betting lines include single-game puck lines (i.e., spreads), over/under total goals scored, and money lines. You can also build NHL parlays or select a pre-packaged parlay to increase the entertainment and potential payouts.
As the Tampa Bay Lightning seek to become the first team to win three straight Stanley Cups since the New York Islanders accomplished the feat nearly 40 years, the Vegas Golden Knights make another run, and the Toronto Maple Leafs try to avenge last year’s early playoff exit, you can view updated NHL odds online and partake in live sports betting.
How to Bet on Hockey
Betting on hockey has never been easier at BetMGM. If, for example, the Detroit Red Wings hosted the Washington Capitals, you would have several NHL betting options available, including:
Puck Line: The Red Wings are -1.5 (-110) over the Capitals, who are +1.5 (-110). If you take the Red Wings -1.5, they have to win by two or more goals for your bet to win. If you take the Capitals +1.5, they can lose by one goal or win the game for your bet to cash.
Money line: If you bet the money line, it doesn’t matter the final score. You only need your team to win.
If you place a $100 bet on the Red Wings’ money line (-315), they can win by any margin in regulation or overtime. If they do, your ticket will cash and return a payout of $131.75 (including stake).
It’s the same case for Washington; if you bet $100 on the Capitals at +250, your ticket will return $350 if they win by any margin.
Over/under total: Betting the over/under in hockey is exhilarating because every goal matters regardless of the score.
It’s simple: If the over/under total for Detroit-Washington is 5.5 (-110), you need at least six goals to hit the over. If you bet the under (-110), you need five goals or less to win.
Live Hockey Betting
There’s only one way to add even more excitement to hockey betting: live sports betting.
Live betting, aka in-game betting, is the most unique and exhilarating form of online sports betting. It allows you to place live bets throughout the game. From the opening face-off through the final horn, you can view live NHL odds and place a winning bet as you watch on TV or at the arena.
Whether you want to hedge against a pre-game bet, increase your position on a money line, or place a new bet online, live sports betting allows you more freedom with your daily wagering.
