NHL Second Period Moneyline Betting Explained
Betting the 2nd period moneyline of an NHL game is one of the easiest bet types to understand. When you bet a 2nd period moneyline you are simply betting on which team will outright win the second period. Unlike a full game moneyline bet the other periods do not matter. The score in the 1st period has no impact on a 2nd period moneyline bet. NHL 2nd period moneyline odds will list the the favorite in a given game as a negative number (ie. -150) that means you will have to bet that amount to win $100. The underdog will be listed with a positive number (ie. +500) that means you will win that amount on a $100 bet.

NHL 2nd Period ML Example:
The Vancouver Canucks are traveling to take on the Edmonton Oilers in Edmonton. After an upsetting 1st period for the Oilers where they allowed the Canucks to take a 2-0 lead the Oilers 2nd period moneyline odds are listed at (+300). The oddsmakers believe that the Canucks will continue to dominate the 2nd period and put the game out of reach. In a stunning turn of events the Oilers are able to put together a solid period and score a goal. At the end of the 2nd period the score is Canucks 2 - Oilers 1. Although the Oilers are still losing the game they won the second period. Since the Canucks did not score and the Oilers scored once in the 2nd period they win. If you were to have placed a $100 bet on the Oilers 2nd period moneyline which was listed at (+300) you would have just won $300!
