NHL Betting is Growing Leading into the 2022 Playoffs 

Professional hockey is arguably the smallest of the big four professional sports. However, as of recently the NHL has seen a growing fanbase. This could be thanks to the addition of two western expansion teams: The Vegas Golden Knights and the Seattle Kraken. It also helps that hockey was one of the first professional sports to come back after the COVID-19 pandemic.

NHL Against the Spread (ATS) Records

Betting the spread is probably the least popular form of NHL betting. You may have seen the spread for NHL games referred to as the, “puckline”. This is because the spread is frequently 1.5 runs. The spread rarely changes, however the odds do. You can read more about runlines here. Even though betting on runlines is not extremely popular, these are good bets if you think a team will either win or lose by more than one run.

NHL Injury Report

Injuries always play a significant role in any NHL season. The loss of key players can dramatically alter a team's prospect for winning games. Not only that, but the absence of stars on the ice will also impact a game's odds. Seasoned bettors know to scour the injury reports before making a wager to ensure that their selection is one that takes into account who might be missing from the field in a given contest.
