How to bet on the Canucks

Here is a rundown of some odds and sports betting terms you should know when betting on the NHL at Canadian online sportsbooks including PointsBet Sportsbook Canada and MGM Sportsbook Canada:
- Moneyline: Placing a moneyline bet means you are betting on which team will win the game. The negative number indicates the favourite as well as the amount you must bet to win $100. The positive number indicates the underdog and the amount you could win for every $100 bet. Using the moneyline above, you would bet $160 on the favoured Toronto Maple Leafs in order to win $100. If you bet on the underdog Canucks to win the game, you would wager $100 to win $135.
- Spread or puck line: Spread odds are based on the margin of victory in the game. Because hockey tends to be a low-scoring affair, the standard pregame spread — commonly known as the puck line — is +1.5/-1.5. Whenever you wager on the puck line, you are betting on the favourite (-1.5) to win by two goals, or the underdog (+1.5) to either lose by one goal or win outright. The numbers in parentheses are the odds you use to calculate how much you’d win based on your wager.
- Over/under or totals: Oddsmakers set a combined number of goals for both teams to score in the game. You bet whether the total will be under or over that number. The .5 as part of the number eliminates any chance of a tie or “push.” In parentheses are the odds to calculate how much you’d win based on your wager.
- Live betting: Place bets on a game while it is in progress. Live betting odds shift throughout the game.
- Props: Prop betting, or propositional betting, allows you to wager on specific players and events within the game that may not be directly related to the game’s final outcome. An example of a common hockey prop bet is on which player will score the first goal of a game.
- Futures: These are wagers on a long-term outcome, not something from tonight’s game. Some common NHL futures odds include Stanley Cup odds, what teams will win a conference title, and major NHL award odds (Hart Trophy odds, Rocket Richard odds etc.).
- Parlay: A parlay is a sports bet that combines several wagers together. In a parlay bet, every individual bet that forms the parlay must be successful in order for the entire parlay to win.
- Push: A push is a bet where the final result is a tie. In the event of a push, you’ll receive your stake back and not lose any of the money you wagered.

Canucks in the Stanley Cup playoffs
The Canucks’ first significant playoff run was in 1982. Led by legendary forward Stan Smyl, their Cinderella run ended in the Stanley Cup Final with a four-game sweep at the hands of the heavily favoured New York Islanders.
The 1990s marked the Canucks’ return to prominence. With a roster highlighted by offensive stars Trevor Linden and Pavel Bure, in 1994 Vancouver made its second trip to the Stanley Cup Final. This time, the Canucks were bested by the New York Rangers in a demoralizing 3-2 loss in Game 7.
Other major talents have since suited up for the Canucks, from Markus Naslund to Roberto Luongo to Henrik and Daniel Sedin, but they’ve never quite managed to put all the pieces together to win a championship. Their last appearance in the Stanley Cup Final was in 2011. The result was another Game 7 loss.
Canucks draft picks & top prospects
The Canucks have a long history of success finding gems in the later rounds of the draft, including Kevin Bieksa (third round, 2001) and Alexander Edler (third round, 2004). But their greatest draft-day steal to date has to be their selection of legendary Russian forward Pavel Bure in the sixth round of the 1989 entry draft.
Here are some of the Canucks’ notable selections from recent drafts:

Boudreau is supported by the Canucks’ assistant coaches: Scott Walker, Kyle Gustafson, Brad Shaw and Jason King. Ian Clark is the goaltending coach, and Darryl Seward (video) round out the staff.

Since joining the NHL in the 1970-71 season, the Vancouver Canucks have had 19 head coaches. Alain Vigneault (2006-2013) has the longest tenure to date, serving as the head coach for 540 games. Vigneault is also the Canucks’ winningest head coach, with 346 victories.
