How To Bet

Just like baseball, Hockey wagers are primarily made using the Money Line.

To bet on hockey, simply tell the ticket writer the bet number of the team that you wish to bet on, and the amount you wish to wager. If you only want to bet on one team, that would be a Straight Bet; which is the fastest and easiest type of hockey wager. If your team wins the game, you win.

When betting on the Money Line, the "minus" (-) preceding the number indicates the team is the favorite, and the "plus" (+) preceding the number indicates the team is an underdog.

When betting on Hockey, another wagering option is the “Puck Line” (also known as the “Goal Line”).

The hockey puck line option allows you to wager on the underdog and “take” (or get) +1 1/2 goals; or “lay” (or give) -1 1/2 goals if you bet on the favorite. The corresponding money line odds reflect the “handicap”.

Another hockey wagering option is betting on the “Total”, also referred to as the over/under.

A “total” wager is a bet that the total score of the game will be more, (over) or less, (under) the number listed. It doesn’t matter which team covers the spread, simply add the goals scored of each team to determine if your wager won or lost. This is also an 10/11 wager, unless otherwise noted.

Bet No.  Team  Odds  Total  Money line for total  Puck Line  Money Line for Puck Line 
51  Blue Jackets  +170  Ov +110  +1.5  -165 
52  Penguins  -200    Un -130  -1.5  +145 

In the game example above:

If you bet using the money line:

The Penguins' odds are -200, meaning a $20 bet would win $10, for a return of $30.

The Blue Jackets odds are +170, meaning a $10 bet would win $17, for a return of $27.

If you bet using the puck line:

The Penguins are -1 ½ goal favorites to win and the associated money line odds are +145; This means, the Penguins must win the game by at least two goals to be a winner and a $10 bet would win $14.50’ for a return of $24.50.

The Blue Jackets are +1 ½ goal underdogs and the associated money line odds are -165; This means, if the Blue Jackets win, (or lose by 1 goal) a $16.50 bet would win $10 for a return of $26.50.

If you bet on the Total (total combined goals by both teams):

A bet on the Over: The total goals scored must add up to 7 or more for you to win your wager.

A bet on the Under: The total goals scored must add up to 5 or less for you to win your wager.

If the opposite occurs, your wager would lose. If the total goals scored in the game finishes EXACTLY on 6 goals, your bet would result in a tie (also referred to as a “push”) and you would get your original bet refunded.

All parlay payoffs are computed by multiplying the payoff conversion (odds equivalent to one dollar) of the teams in the parlay, by amount wagered.

As with all sports, and at every BetLucky Sportsbook location, you can parlay up to 10 hockey teams per ticket and you can combine most of the money lines, totals, and puck lines that are available at the time of your wager!
