Betting Hockey

The most common form of betting on hockey is moneyline wagering – simply betting on which team you think will win the game, with the moneyline price on that team determining how much you could win on your bet. The National Hockey League may rank a distant fourth among the four major sports in the United States, but that hasn't stopped sportsbooks from posting lines on the NHL. Bettors who are willing to put some effort into handicapping the National Hockey League are often rewarded by the public's nonchalance to the sport, as oddsmakers don't spend the same amount of time creating NHL odds as they do with more popular sports, such as football or basketball. Hockey bettors will find lower betting limits on NHL games than they will in the NFL or NBA, something which is generally seen as an acknowledgment by the sportsbooks that they are less comfortable accepting bets on the NHL than they are on the other two sports.
