Canucks 2.31 Wild 1.709
NYI 2.46 LAK 1.641

So if you put $1 on the Flyers and they win, you will get $2.28 back, for a net profit of $1.28. If you bet $1 on the Rangers, you will get $1.725 back and a net profit of $0.725.

The puck line is whether the team that is favoured will win by two goals or more.

Flyers +1.5 1.455
Rangers -1.5 3.00

If you bet on the Flyers and they win the game or lose by one goal at most, you win the bet. If you bet on the Rangers and they win by two goals or more, you win. But if they win by only one goal, you lose. It's like the spread in football or basketball. The team that is favoured will have the "-1.5", and it is often referred to as the puck line.
ah, so just betting on who will win, and the spread. good, good. thanks.
