Our expert Pickfinder will scan the various betting options listed below, and only show you the most relevant and eye-catching betting opportunities to help you make an NHL prediction with the best NHL betting sites.

Best NHL Picks Against the Spread

Betting against the spread is a popular way of betting on an underdog, with a spread value attached to them. The most common spread in NHL betting is the puck line, which is always set at 1.5 goals. Betting against the spread would therefore mean you are backing the underdog to either win or lose by a single goal. This covers all winning scenarios, overtime or shootout defeats and a one-goal regulation defeat. Alternative puck line values are also available, which could earn you more money with NHL betting apps.

NHL Moneyline Picks

The moneyline is the most straightforward of all the NHL online sports betting picks. It all boils down to which team wins the game. Moneyline picks are popular for both their simplicity and their availability. Every bookmaker offers this market, and there is never any confusion or debate at the end of the game, it either wins or it loses! Moneyline bets are particularly attractive on NHL picks and parlays, be it for an NHL playoff or regular season game.

NHL Over Under Picks

The most common form of over/under NHL betting picks are the total goals markets. These can sometimes be broken down by period, but the most popular market includes the entire game, including overtime. The line for most NHL hockey games will be set at either 5.5 or 6.5 goals, and a lot of bettors will bet this market regularly, as it can maintain their interest in even a one-sided game.

NHL Picks and Parlays

Quite often, the NHL picks for that day's games just won't cut it. You might want to be a bit more ambitious and combine several teams into one bet, with a higher potential payout if successful. That is where parlay betting is particularly attractive. A parlay is a combination of two or more picks, merged into one bet, where all the bet legs need to win for you to make a return. The more selections you add to the bet, the higher the NHL odds go. These can be great bets to use any betting welcome offers on as there is minimal risk attached to your wager for maximum profit. 

NHL Puck Line Picks

Puck line betting is a particularly exciting market when it comes to NHL picks and parlays. The puck line is a 1.5-goal handicap, applied to the team that are considered the favorite in any given contest. If you pick the favorite, it means your pick must not only win the game in regulation, but they must win by more than a goal. The reason this bet is considered so exciting is that quite often, a team will have a one goal lead in the final minutes of an NHL game, when the opposition pulls their goaltender for an extra attacker. This leaves a potentially gaping empty net for your team to (hopefully) score into, making your bet a late winner.
