NHL betting is heating up as the regular season winds down and teams prepare to chase the Stanley Cup.

Through the first five months of the season, several teams have been dominant against the spread while others have been horrendous. And all 32 teams have contributed to several NHL betting trends, including those for well-rested favorites against teams playing the second half of a back-to-back, and road favorites in the game after a blowout loss.

As you check out updated puck lines for the final regular-season games, here are the updated NHL ATS records and over-under records (through April 12, 2022):

NHL ATS Records for 2021-22


What is the Puck Line in NHL Betting?

Puck line is hockey’s version of the point spread you see in most sports, including football and baseball.

In NFL betting, for example, the spread is the number of points by which one team is favored and one team is the underdog. The New Orleans Saints might be a 4.5-point favorite against the Cleveland Browns, which means the spread is 4.5 points. The spread is accompanied by odds (aka the vig), which is most often -110 for each team.

In NHL betting, the Colorado Avalanche might be a 1.5-goal favorite against the Detroit Red Wings, which means the puck line is 1.5 goals. However, unlike football betting, the puck line is almost always constant, -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog, and the odds vary. The Blackhawks’ -1.5 puck line might have odds of +140, and the Red Wings’ +1.5 might have odds of -120.
