How Do You Bet on Hockey?

Last Updated:

Betting on hockey can be an exciting way to enjoy the game while potentially earning a profit. In the US, there are several legal options available for betting on hockey. One of the most popular ways to bet on hockey is through a moneyline bet, which involves betting on which team will win the game outright.

Another popular type of hockey bet is the puck line bet, which is similar to a point spread bet in other sports. With a puck line bet, you can either bet on a team to win by a certain number of goals or to keep the game within a certain number of goals.

You can also bet on the total number of goals scored in a game with a totals bet, or make a prop bet on a specific event within the game, such as which player will score the first goal.
