In order to bet on hockey money lines successfully you must always be careful to handicap the genuine value that each team offers with regard to the established odds.
To bet on hockey with the money line is just like betting on other sports using the money line. In other words, a hockey bet on the money line is solely based on which team wins a matchup outright, as neither team faces any sort of handicap.
Therefore, it is much simpler to bet on hockey with the money line than it is to bet on hockey with the puck line, in which one must account for a 1½ point handicap that is applied to every matchup. Nevertheless, because a hockey bet on the money line only focuses on the winning team, the prices offered for each team vary more substantially than in puck lines. For instance, one may bet on hockey matchups in which the money line has one team listed at -250 and the other listed at +225. Therefore, in order to bet on hockey supporting the favorite one must be willing to accept more risk, while a hockey bet on the underdog is less likely to win, although the payoff is also higher.
Due to the differences between the money line and the puck line there are different instances in which one should choose to bet on hockey with each one. Placing a hockey bet on the money line favorite is most logical when you are very confident that a team will win its matchup, although you feel as though the game may be very close. When you bet on hockey using the puck line and the game ends in a shootout then a wager on the favorite is guaranteed to lose, so if you think such a result is possible then the money line is likely the best hockey bet to choose. On the other hand, you will want to bet on hockey underdogs with the money line when the payoff odds are high enough to rationalize wagering on the non-favored team to win a matchup. When you bet on hockey money lines it is very important to remember that you must pay close attention to the payoff odds for each team, rather than just considering which team you believe will win the matchup. In many situations you can find the best value by placing a hockey bet on the underdog, even though the team will probably lose, simply because the possible payoff odds are so high.
