Throughout the regular season and the playoffs, you will find a great selection of KHL betting odds, which ultimately will lead you to the real jackpot: the Gagarin Cup. These odds will tell you the likelihood of your bet winning and are important to keep an eye on if you plan to bet on the games. Depending on the odds format you prefer, you may view the odds differently – there are American odds which typically are presented in a +140/-150 format, decimal odds or fractional odds.
When it comes to these KHL odds, you will want to familiarize yourself with the popular betting options you will find on these games. Firstly, you will understand the moneyline wager, which allows you to bet on the winner of a game straight up. When it comes to reading the odds, it will just be straight up – so whichever format you choose – you are simply betting on that outcome.
The point spread line will be set by our oddsmakers, giving the underdog team an imaginary head start of a goal or a few goals, meaning they simply need to win or lose by less than that amount. If you choose the favorite, that team will need to win by more than that amount.
When it comes to betting totals, you will find a bit of a larger number, which is the combined goals for both teams playing. This might be 6.5, and you will choose the over, which means you think there will be more than 7 goals scored total, or the under, which means you think there will be less than six goals scored.
Aside from these popular KHL betting types, you will find some basic props, which can range from team props, player props and game props. These will occur during the game, whether it’s betting on a certain player to score, or how many goals a player might score, to even betting on whether the game will go to a shootout. There are plenty of these KHL prop betting options – not quite as many as you’d find in the NHL but a great selection nonetheless.
