NHL Global Sportsbook Odds
How to read Hockey Global Money Line Odds
When wagering on the money line, you pick either one team or the other. It's that simple!
If you are betting on the NHL and making money line 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!
Similar to our Puck-line and 1st Period Odds, every game on the board shows the Odds, Date and Time of the National Hockey League games on the slate.
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.
Tampa Bay -225 (Bet $100 to win $44.40)
Ottawa +210 (Bet $100 to win $210)
In the example listed above, Tampa Bay is listed as the overwhelming favorite (-), while Ottawa is the big underdog (+). If a bettor making a wager picked the Lightning, favored to win, they would return just $44.40 on a $100 wager at minus-225. Many sportsbooks also offer fractional odds, and in this instance the Lightning would be listed as a 4/9 favorite. The decimal format, particularly popular overseas, is also sometimes offered. The Lightning would be listed at 1.444 on the board.
With the Lightning installed as the favorite, the Senators are considered as big underdogs. Bettors would receive a larger return on their initial stake with a victory. In the example above, a $100 winning wager on the Senators would earn a total return of $310, which includes a $210 win and the original $100 stake. The fractional odds would be listed as 21/10, while the Senators would be shown at 3.1 with the decimal conversion.
