During the hockey world championship, the best Canadian bookies will offer a lot of betting lines to Canadian players. Canada will be a bookie’s favourite given that they performed well in the previous IIHF hockey world cup championships. However, that shouldn’t mean that bettors should overlook other teams such as Switzerland, Slovakia and Czech Republic as they are tough opponents.
Below are the different betting lines available at IIHF hockey world cup bookies:
- Moneyline – This is the most popular betting line for the ice hockey world cup. Here you simply choose which team will win the hockey world cup match without having to state or choose the number of goals.
- Puck line – this type of wager in hockey world cup betting combines the point spread and moneyline. In order for your bet to be successful, your chosen IIHF World Championship team must win by two or more goals.
- Over/Under Bets (Totals) – the over/under odds in world cup championships betting is simply choosing the winning margin set by an oddsmaker for the competing teams. You pick if the total scores of both teams will be higher or lower than the margin set.
- Futures – placing wagers for the hockey world cup before the season or specific games begin. Usually, future bets offer higher odds compared to the other betting lines.
