Throughout the regular season and the playoffs, you will find a great selection of AHL betting odds which can be a great supplement to your NHL betting. These AHL 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 type of odds you prefer to use, you may view the odds in a different format than other sports bettors – you can use American odds, decimal odds, or fractional.

Moneyline wagers are straight-up bets on any given AHL game. You will find these odds on each game, either team will have odds based on their likelihood of winning the game, and you simply have to pick which team will win.
For point spread betting, you can look at the AHL teams playing in a game, and the underdog team will have a few point lead before the game starts (+), and the favored team will have to win the game by that many points (-). Essentially the underdog is given an advantage, they simply need to win, or lose by less than the point spread number.
When it comes to betting totals, you are betting on the total number of goals both teams will score in the game. If the total for a game is 5.5, you can bet on the under if you feel there will be less than 5 goals scored by both teams, or you can bet the over and bet on there being more than 6 goals by both teams.
Prop betting is a fun way to bet on AHL games, however, you won’t find the huge selection you’d find on any of the NHL games on the calendar. For bigger games, you can find a bigger variety, but you might find team props, player props, and game props on AHL games. You might choose to bet on a certain player to score, or how many goals a player might score, or even betting on whether the game will go into overtime.
