What Are Ice Hockey Betting Odds?
Ice hockey betting odds focus on the chances of a certain bet coming in and help you understand your potential winnings. At Grosvenor Sport, our ice hockey betting odds are shown as fractional odds, but you can change them to decimal to be more in line with betting from the USA.
An example of fractional odds would be 8/1 for the Toronto Maple Leaves to win the Stanley Cup, 9/1 for the Edmonton Oilers, 13/1 for the New York Rangers, 35/1 for the Ottawa Senators, and so on.
If you backed the Oilers and they claimed the Stanley Cup, you would win 9x your stake. A £10 bet would net you £90 plus your original £10 bet. To help understand the odds and your potential winnings on your ice hockey betting, don’t forget to use our helpful betting calculator.
Types of Hockey Bets
You’ll find a range of different ice hockey bets at Grosvenor Sport, including:
Money Line Bets
This is just a simple bet on the outcome of a match. With a money line bet in ice hockey, you’ll bet on which team you think will win an encounter. It could be the winner of one of the matches in the Stanley Cup Playoffs or a Regular Season NHL game.
Puck Line Bets
A puck line bet is ice hockey’s version of the points spread and is a form of handicap betting. When you bet on the puck line, the favourite will start the encounter with -1.5 goals and the underdog will start with +1.5 goals. If you back the favourite to win, they need to do so by at least two goals.
An over/under bet is where you bet on the total amount of goals in a specific match being over or under a certain number.
A proposition bet in ice hockey is a bet that isn’t directly related to the outcome or result of a particular game. One of the most common prop bets in ice hockey is on a certain player to score in a big game. For example, Connor McDavid to score for the Edmonton Oilers in the fourth game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Other prop bets include the time of the first goal, the number of goals or assists by certain players in games. You can also bet on long-term prop bets, focusing on the player statistics across the season.
