NHL Puckline Betting Report

Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lighting are honored with the President's Trophy before the game against the Washington Capitals at Amalie Arena on March 30, 2019 in Tampa, Florida.

When betting on the NHL, it can sometimes be hard to find value in a team that’s either heavily favored or is a major underdog on the moneyline. Luckily for us, most sportsbooks give us a puckline, which is the same idea as a point spread in sports such as football and basketball.

The difference, of course, is that scores in hockey are much lower and the spread is always set at 1.5. This means that in order to cash a spread bet, a favorite must win by two goals or an underdog must not lose by more than one goal.

Each week we’ll update every team’s puckline records for the 2018-19 season and below is a table containing every team’s puckline records and profits.
