What is a Puck Line?
The Puck Line is a type of spread bet available when betting specifically on Ice Hockey. The Puck Line is always set at 1.5, which means the favorite always has their puck line set at -1.5 goals and the underdog puck line is always set at +1.5 goals.
For example, if the Boston Bruins were favorites against the Carolina Hurricanes (who are the underdogs), the Puck Line market would have the Bruins with a negative 1.5 (-1.5) attached to them while the Hurricanes would have a positive 1.5 (+1.5) attached to them.
For the Bruins -1.5 bet to win you would need the Bruins to win the game by 2 or more goals, for the Hurricanes +1.5 bet to win you would need the Hurricanes to win the game or only lose the game by 1 goal.
