How to Read the NHL ATS Rankings

The NHL Against the Spread or ATS Rankings are a vital betting resource for all bettors following the action on the ice.

This feature provides updated records for all 32 NHL pro hockey teams in the league and present the data in a sortable fashion.

The categories featured within the NHL ATS Rankings are listed below:

  • Straight Up
  • Puck Line
  • Over-Under

Straight Up

The term Straight Up or what’s also identified as SU in the sports betting industry is as simple as it gets. A straight up wager is a bet on the outright winner of a matchup with the point-spread not involved.

Bettors just need to select the winner of the matchup and cheer for a final result. For SU wagers, there are only two choices and it’s either the favorite or underdog. In some instances, you might have a game go off as a pick ‘em where there is neither a favorite or underdog.

Straight Up wagers are most common in sports where the money-line is the most popular market, in particular MLB, NHL, Soccer and MMA events.

Against the Spread

For NHL, the Against the Spread category is often called the Puck Line and this market is very similar to the MLB Run Line.

The puck line is a type of hockey bet that is similar to a point spread in other sports. It is a way to bet on the favorite to win by a certain margin, or on the underdog to lose by less than that margin.

The puck line is typically set at -1.5 goals, which means that the favorite must win by two or more goals for your bet to win. If you bet on the underdog at +1.5 goals, they can either win the game outright or lose by one goal and your bet will still win.

Puck line bets are popular among hockey bettors for a few reasons. First, they can be a good way to bet on the favorite without having to lay a large price on the moneyline. For example, if the favorite is -200 on the moneyline, you could instead bet on them to win on the puck line (-1.5) at -120.

Second, puck line bets can be a good way to bet on the underdog without having to take a big risk. For example, if the underdog is +200 on the moneyline, you could instead bet on them to lose by less than 1.5 goals at +150.

Over-Under

The Over-Under or Totals column is another popular feature in the MLB ATS Rankings feature.

An Over-Under wager focuses on the total combined runs by both teams for a matchup and that number is created by the oddsmakers prior to the matchup.

Put simply, bettors have two choices on the total and they can select Over or Under.

If the game goes Over, then it will appear 1-0 in the O/U column and go up or down accordingly and 0-1 if the Under connects. It is also common to see ties (pushes) with the Over-Under betting results.
