How to bet on Penguins games in Pennsylvania
Betting on the NHL has never been easier in the state of Pennsylvania ever since the state legalized sports betting. Gone are the days of asking friends in other states to place bets for you, or using an overseas website or an illegal bookie.

- Locate a bonus or sign up promotion offer on this page. Look for one that appeals to your needs. You can use multiple to broaden your scope.

Penguins betting lines explained
|Pittsburgh||-150||-1.5 (+140)||Over 5.5 (-125)|
|NY Rangers||+150||+1.5 (+140)||Under 5.5 (-105)|
- Moneyline: Moneyline betting is simply betting on which team you think will win the game. Margin of victory, regulation, overtime; none of that matters. If at the end of the game the team you bet on wins, you win your moneyline bet. A -150 favorite requires a $150 bet to win a profit of $100. A +130 underdog would net a profit of $130 on a $100 bet.
- Puck-line: Puck-line betting is the equivalent of spread betting for other sports. In other sports, the spread will vary based on the talent discrepancy between the two teams. However in hockey, due to the low-scoring nature of the sport, the puck-line is almost always 1.5. Betting on the favorite to cover the puck-line is almost always a plus-money proposition.
- Total: The number of goals both teams combine to score in the game. This includes overtime goals. If the game goes to a shootout, one goal will be added to the winning team’s final tally but individual shootout goals do not count. Most totals in hockey are in between 5 goals and 6.5 goals.
Penguins Vegas odds vs. online odds
The lines found on online sportsbooks are not that different compared to the lines found in Vegas. Both online sportsbooks and Vegas use similar computer models to figure out their lines. These models use the same data and have the same information, meaning the results will be similar.
If a sportsbook develops a significant liability on one side of a game, they may move the line to try and attract action on the other side. This is a concern if everyone in Pennsylvania is betting on the hometown Penguins. The line in Pennsylvania may move, but the line in Vegas wouldn’t change much.
Penguins live betting
Live betting means betting on a sports game after the game has already started. If you’re getting home from work late and you missed your opportunity to get a bet in before puck drop, it’s no big deal. You can live-bet the game, and depending on what’s happened up to that point in the game, you might get even better Penguins betting odds.
Live betting adjusts the lines based on what has already happened in the game. If there have been no goals in the first ten minutes of the game, the pregame total of 5.5 goals might now drop to 4.5. If the favored team has a 1-0 lead early, the live puck-line might now be 2.5 instead of 1.5 goals.
With all of the sportsbook apps, live betting is easier than ever. You can place your bet while on the move from anywhere within the state. Odds adjust in real-time so you’re never out of the loop.
Penguins prop betting
If you’re not sure how the game will go, you can still get in on the action with a prop bet. A prop bet is a bet on whether something will occur within the game. Some examples of prop bets in hockey include:
- Team to score first: This is a self-explanatory bet. Do you expect the Penguins to come out flying in a big game and get the first goal? You can bet on Pittsburgh to score first and cash your bet early on in the game.
- Player Over/Under points: Sidney Crosby has had a lot of big games in his career. You might think Sid the Kid has another monster game up his sleeve, and therefore you’d look towards betting over on his points scored. Some lesser players’ point total over/unders might be 0.5 points (basically a yes/no on whether they’ll score a goal or record an assist), but with a player in the caliber of Crosby, a typical over/under would be set at 1.5 points.
- Who will win the second period?: Maybe you missed the opening period due to being stuck at work late and then during the third period you have to pick your kid up from practice. You’ll only be able to watch the second period. No worries. You can bet on which team you think will win the second period. Whatever happens in the first or third period is irrelevant for your bet.

Brief Penguins history
Mario Lemieux might be known as one of the best hockey players to ever play, but he’s the current owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The former superstar of the team originally bought into team ownership in 1999 with Ronald Burkle.
At the beginning of Lemieux’s ownership, there was concern about the long-term prospects of the Penguins and how long the organization could survive in Pittsburgh. Thankfully, the team drafted some kids named Crosby and Malkin, started winning a lot of hockey games, and got a new arena built-in 2008.
Pittsburgh has won 5 Stanley Cups in their history and they’ve come in two distinct eras. The 1991 and 1992 champion Penguins were led by the aforementioned Mario Lemieux. Lemieux is considered by some the second greatest hockey player to ever play the game. The Penguins of the early 1990s also featured players like Jaromir Jagr, Mark Recchi, Kevin Stevens, Paul Coffey, Ron Francis, Bryan Trottier, and other legends of the game. Tom Barrasso was the team’s goalie and he helped backstop the team to back-to-back championships.
The Penguins also won the Stanley Cup in 2009, 2016, and 2017. These three championships fall under the Sidney Crosby era. Crosby is considered to be one of the greatest players in our current generation. Crosby has been joined by names like Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Kris Letang, Phil Kessel, and others to help win three rings in 8 years.
Here are some of the all-time leaders for the Penguins in some major statistics:
- Games Played: Sidney Crosby (1,039)
- Goals: Mario Lemieux (690)
- Assists: Mario Lemieux (1033)
- Points: Mario Lemieux (1723)
- Wins: Marc-Andre Fleury (375)
- Saves: Marc-Andre Fleury (17,774)

Worst moment in recent Penguins history
