The NHL, which was founded in 1917, featured the Original Six teams from 1942 to 1967 — Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. The league then increased to 18 teams in 1974 and 21 teams in 1979. In the 1990s, the NHL further expanded to 30 teams, and added its 31st team in 2017.
On a busy regular-season night, there can be as many as 15 games from coast-to-coast in the United States and Canada. The 82-game season starts at the beginning of October and ends with the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final in June.
NHL Puck Line
This wager means that the favorite in the game needs to defeat the underdog by more than one goal in order for the bet on the favorite to win. If the underdog loses the game by one goal or wins the game outright, the underdog wins the puck line wager. Odds are attached to both teams to determine the payoff for the winning ticket. The betting line is always -1.5 goals for the favorite.
NHL Money Line
This is the simplest bet to make on NHL games. The team you bet on needs to win for you to cash your ticket. Both the favorite and the underdog have odds attached to them, which determines the payoff for a winning ticket.
NHL Over Under
Oddsmakers set a goal total to be scored in a game by both teams. Bettors decide whether more (over) or less (under) than that total will be scored. Both sides of the bet will have odds attached to them, which determines the payoff for a winning ticket.
Bettors can wager on any of the NHL’s 31 teams to win the Stanley Cup at any point in the season until the league final begins. That is a futures bet. If your team wins the Stanley Cup, you cash your ticket. Odds are placed on each team before the season begins. The odds will likely change throughout the season, depending on how well that team is doing in the standings.
NHL Player Props
Will Connor McDavid score 40 goals this season? Will Patrick Kane lead the league in scoring? Will James Neal score a goal in tonight’s game? These are just a few of the many examples of prop bets. Odds will be attached to both sides of the bet to determine the payoff for a winning ticket.
