Hockey may not be the most popular sport with viewers but it is popular with bettors because there is plenty of value to be had. If you are new to betting hockey we will explain how all the different bet types work and show you how BetQL can help take you to the next level with up to date stats & data points to help you cash more tickets. The first thing you have to understand about NHL betting is the line, which shows how much you stand to win by betting each team.
Betting the spread or betting ATS (against the spread) is the most popular form of NHL betting. Betting NHL spreads can be a bit difficult to understand at first but luckily BetQL is here to help. When you are looking at hockey betting lines you will see a team with negative number next to it (-1.5) this means the team is favored and that is how many goals they must win the game by. The underdog will be listed with a positive number (+1.5) and that is how many goals they can lose by and still cover the bet. The positive and negative numbers are known as the spread and they will always be inverse of one another. See a more in depth example of how NHL spreads work below: .
