The New Jersey Devils are the lifeblood of sports in the state and the recent legalization of online sports betting now lets Devils diehards make their hockey watching experience even more exciting by placing bets directly from your phone or computer. It has never been easier to make a quick profit while watching your team right in the comfort of your own home.
Along with online wager options, hockey fans can also get their New Jersey Devils betting fix right in the arena after the Prudential Center inked a partnership with the sportsbook William Hill and Caesars casino to offer betting right from the arena lounge. If you are new to hockey betting, here is a short primer on the types of hockey odds you can wager on and the top online sportsbooks to place your bets.
How to Bet on New Jersey Devil Odds
Hockey odds are largely broken down into three main categories: the puck line, the moneyline, and the over/under.
While the NFL and NBA have varying point spreads for each game, every Devils game is set at a puck line of 1.5. If the Devils are favored to win, they must win by at least 2 goals for your bet to hit. If they are the underdog, they can lose by no more than 1 goal for you to cash in.
Because hockey is low-scoring and has smaller margins than other sports, most bets are placed straight up on the moneyline, which is the ratio between how much you put in and how much you can win. So if the Devils are a -130 favorite, you would need to bet $130 to win $100. If the Devs are a +140 underdog, your $100 bet would net you $140 in winnings.
Along with wagering on the winner, you can bet on the goal total. Each sportsbook will set a projected goal total for each game and bettors can wager whether the final score will be “over” or “under” the projected combined total. You can also place over/under bets on various prop bets, like whether Taylor Hall will have over or under 30 assists or whether Kyle Palmieri will score over or under 30 goals.
New Jersey Devils Betting Options
You can find New Jersey Devils odds listed at any online sportsbook offered by one of the many Atlantic City casinos or physical sportsbooks.
Two popular options are FanDuel and DraftKings, the fantasy sports giants that have started online sportsbooks in New Jersey. These sites offer a user-friendly interface and mobile applications and most importantly a range of prop and in-game bets that allow you to bet on any individual event like whether Travis Zajac will score two or more goals or whether the Devils’ goalie will record 30 or more saves.
Top AC casinos like the Golden Nugget, Caesars, Borgata, 888 Casino, BetFair, Hard Rock, Resorts, and nearby Sugar House all offer online sportsbooks as well. These sites all offer varying starter bonuses and deposit match bonuses to get you started.
The popular sportsbook William Hill has also established an online presence in the state. William Hill and Caesars have also opened up lounges right inside the Prudential Center so you can get your New Jersey Devils betting fix right at the arena.
