NHL Playoffs odds can be played in many different ways as you prepare for the final sportsbook betting opportunity to bet hockey this season. NHL Playoffs odds start with the series, then on to individual games, over/under totals, and proposition sportsbook betting.
If you just want to bet on who will ultimately beat the NHL Playoffs odds to win the Stanley Cup you can wager on the series odds. This is simply a method of sportsbook betting in which you bet on who you think will win the seven game series for the Stanley Cup. A similar form of this is “futures” wagering, in which you can bet at any time of year on which team will beat the NHL Playoffs odds to win the Stanley Cup.
Sides wagering is the most popular way to bet the NHL Playoffs odds. A money line is posted on each team with the favorite laying odds/money and the underdog getting odds/and plus money. For example, of Detroit is listed as a -$150 favorite against the NHL Playoffs odds you would have to bet $150 to win $100. If Pittsburgh was the underdog at +$130 that means that you would win $130 on a $100 wager.
Over/under totals are a great way to play the NHL Playoffs odds. This is where you wager on whether or not the combined score of the two teams will go over or under a set number. If the “total” posted on the NHL Playoffs odds board is 5.5 and Pittsburgh beat Detroit 4-2, the game would be considered an “over” since the combined score was 6. The winner of the game does not matter when playing over/unders.
Proposition wagers, also known as “props,” against the NHL Playoffs odds are a fun way to bet the Stanley Cup Finals. You can wager on such items as which team or player will score first, which player will score the most goals, most assists, the amount of fights and penalties, the odds of a goaltender making a shutout, and many other offerings.

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
