How to read Hockey Global Money Line Odds
When wagering on the moneyline, you pick either one team or the other. It's that simple!
If you are betting on the NHL and making moneyline bets, you'll either be rooting for the favorite or the underdog top win in either regulation, overtime or a shootout. You needn't worry about a team winning a certain amount of goals. It's simply a victory outright, and that's it!
Hockey will list Favorites and Underdogs for that day's schedule of games. The Money Line Odds will list the favorite with a (-) symbol, while the underdogs will be shown with a (+) symbol. The majority of betting sites online, as well as the betting apps, will simply do the math for you. However, it is a rather simple equation based upon a $100 bet.
