What Does The Puck Line Mean?
The Puck Line is a bet that only appears in NHL betting. A Puck Line bet works just the same as how a spread bet works in most other sports. NHL games are low scoring compared to other North American sports. Therefore, the puck line or point spread is usually only 1.5 goals, where the favorite starts on -1.5, whereas the underdog starts on +1.5.
If the favorite is -1.5 on the puck line, then this means the favorite has to win by two or more goals to win the bet. For example, let’s say you wagered the St. Louis Blues -1.5 on the puck line and they won 4-3 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. This means that you would have lost your bet because the St. Louis Blues couldn’t cover the -1.5 spread.
Now, if the underdog is +1.5 on the puck line, then the underdog can win, draw or lose the match by less than two points. For example, let’s say you wagered the Arizona Coyotes to cover +1.5 on the puck line they lost 4-3 against the Vegas Golden Knights. This means that you would have won your bet because the St. Louis Blues couldn’t cover the -1.5 spread.
