Free NHL Money Line Predictions
Whether you are looking to wager on today's NHL matches or those coming up in the near future, the main betting market is the money line which is not only found in the NHL but you will also see this when looking at NFL predictions, NBA picks, and MLB picks.
This market is a simple bet on whether the designated home or away team will be successful and because this is a 2-way market it will include any overtime and penalties (check sportsbook T&Cs when it comes to European matches).
What you will see are the odds for either team, for example, Pittsburgh Penguins may be -170 to beat the New York Rangers, meaning if you staked $10 and it was successful, your payout would be $15.88, a profit of $5.88.
On the other hand, if you fancy the New York Rangers to win then you would wager on them, say their money line odds were +150 and you staked $10 then you could win as much as $25 ($15 profit) if successful.
If NHL betting is something new to you but at the same time something you think you would be interested in then opening an account would be needed, check out our Best Sportsbooks for NHL Betting article which will help you find the right one.
You might want to add the NHL money line picks into a parlay, this is a way of building up the odds for a better return but you need them all to win to get that return.
- PIT Penguins to win -170 (1.59)
- FLA Panthers to win -150 (1.67)
- CAL Flames to win -160 (1.63)
- COL Avalanche to win -245 (1.41)
Converting the American odds to decimal odds is the easiest way to work out an estimated return, you multiply the odds together (1.59*1.67*1.63*1.41) and that will give you an estimate of your returns which in this case works out as 6.10.
That means your NHL Parlay if all four wagers are successful, for a $10 stake would return roughly $61 which would be a $51 profit. If you would like to learn more then head over to our Parlay Bets article.
