NHL 3rd Period ATS Example:
The Detroit Red Wings are playing the Buffalo Sabres at home and after the 2nd period the score is Red Wings 3 - Buffalo Sabres 2. The Red Wings have shown after two periods that they are the better team and the oddsmakers have placed the puck line for the third period at +/- .5 with the Red Wings as the favorite. After a hard fought third period the final buzzer sounds and the final score is Red Wings 4 - Buffalo Sabres 2 which means the third period ended Red Wings 1 - Buffalo Sabres 0. Since the puck line was -.5 for the Red Wings and they scored a goal and the Sabres did not it means a bet for the Red Wings 3rd period ATS covers!
