NHL Vegas odds

Even in the desert, hockey betting is hot. Hockey has exploded in popularity in Sin City and the NHL Vegas odds are taking more action than ever. You can find tonight’s hockey odds from the biggest and best sportsbooks in Las Vegas in the gray column to the right of the NHL odds board.

How to read Vegas NHL odds

The odds above are listed in American format. The favorite can be identified by the negative odds. The underdog has the positive odds. For example, the Montreal Canadiens have odds of -175. This means you would need to bet $175 on the Canadiens to win $100. The underdog Ottawa Senators have odds of +155. This means that a $100 bet on Ottawa would win $155.

You can change the odds format from American to Decimal or Fraction from the Odds Settings pop out above the odds tool.

NHL moneyline

Moneyline betting is the most popular way to wager on hockey. Moneyline odds simply ask you to pick which team will win the game. But because not all hockey teams are equal, the NHL moneyline odds will offer different payouts based on the team’s chances of winning the game.

You can find today’s NHL moneyline odds by clicking ML above the odds board.

NHL spreads (puck lines)

NHL spread betting – also known as the puck line – is a great way to wager on hockey. With many NHL games being decided by one goal, the standard NHL spread is set at 1.5 goals. Puck line bettors can either bet the favorite (-1.5) to win by two or more or they can take the underdog (+1.5) to win outright or keep it a one-goal game.

Find NHL spreads for today’s games by selecting puck line in the odds options above the board.

NHL Over/Under

Over/Under totals are a great way to bet on hockey without taking a side. Oddsmakers set a projected total number of goals for the game, and you can bet on whether the teams will combine to go Over or Under that number. Most NHL totals will be between five and 6.5 goals.

Size up the Over/Unders for today’s action on the ice by selecting totals in the options above the odds board.

NHL opening lines

Check out and compare the NHL opening lines with the live lines to see which games have seen the biggest adjustments to their odds. Sportsbooks will post the opening lines the night before and will adjust the odds based on betting action and injuries right up until the puck drops.

Find the NHL opening lines in the left-hand column to compare the biggest moves for tonight’s NHL odds.

NHL futures

NHL futures allow you to bet on season-long results, such as odds to win the Stanley Cup or which teams will win the Eastern and Western Conference titles. These futures are posted before the season begins and adjust throughout the schedule until decided.

You can find NHL futures by clicking Team Futures in the right-hand corner of the odds page.
