How to bet on Leafs games
Whether you’re a huge Leafs fan or just a casual hockey observer jumping on the bandwagon, betting on the Leafs at any legal online sportsbook such as FanDuel Sportsbook Canada or Caesars Sportsbook Canada is simple. Basic hockey bets include:
- Moneyline: Just pick game winners and book your bet at the currently posted moneyline odds. Favorites have negative (-) odds telling you how much you need to bet to win $100 and your bet back. Underdogs have positive (+) odds telling you how much you stand to earn, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet.
- Puck line: NHL spread betting. Just pick a betting winner with the posted puck line factored into the final score. Odds vary. Standard puck lines are usually 1.5 goals, but alternatives at different odds are available.
- Over/Under betting: Bet on whether the total combined score by both teams will be over or under a line set by oddsmakers.
- Props: Bet on individual NHL players or teams to achieve certain stat lines in a single game.
- Parlays: Combine two or more bets into one. Greater potential payout than individual bets, but every bet must win.
- Team futures: Bet on a team to win more or less than a certain number of games, its division, a Stanley Cup semifinal, or win the Stanley Cup outright. Markets open year round, but odds adjusted throughout.
- Player futures: Bet on Auston Matthews or Mitch Marner to win the Hart or win the Art Ross or bet on players to match certain seasonal targets (goals, assists, etc)
- Live betting: Wager on an ongoing Leafs game at live betting odds that change with the action on the ice.
#1 Leafs betting tip
If you’re going to bet on the Leafs or any NHL action, you must understand that the NHL is a relatively low-scoring league. The average game has a total of five goals or less and is decided by just one goal. That means there’s not much separating most teams on most nights. In other words, parity is very real in the NHL.
Hockey game odds should reflect that. When they don’t, you should avoid betting on big favourites. The amount you’ll have to risk is hardly worth the small reward. Plus, it’s a league where there’s parity and any team can win on any night.
Totals lines should also be relatively low. When they’re not, you can confidently bet the under. After all, the NHL is a league where high-scoring games are few and far between.
The low-scoring nature of the NHL is so impactful on betting in so many ways, it has to be considered among the top NHL betting secrets.
Leafs Vegas odds vs. online odds
Leafs game lines will generally open up the same everywhere, from traditional sportsbooks in Las Vegas to provincially licensed and privately run online and mobile sportsbooks in Canada. However, Leafs betting lines may be quite different by game time. That’s because lines move independently, from sportsbook to sportsbook, based on betting patterns.
In other words, a line might change if more money is bet on one side or the other, but it will only change at the sportsbook where that money is bet, not everywhere. Because local interest often drives betting, there’s a greater chance a Leafs line will be moved at a provincially licensed and privately run online sportsbooks in Canada than traditional sportsbooks in Las Vegas.
That’s why, the Vegas Odds on any Toronto Maple Leafs game may start the same as the Leafs line at a provincially licensed and privately run online sportsbook in Canada, but end up different by the time the puck drops.
