Canadian line

A Canadian line is a betting spread for hockey. Because hockey is a lower scoring sport than football or basketball the spreads are significantly smaller. The standard Canadian line for an NHL match is set at 1.5. The favorite will have a spread of -1.5, which requires them to win by more than one goal. The underdog will have a spread of +1.5 which requires either an outright victory or a loss by exactly 1 goal to be graded a win.

The Canadian line betting market is more commonly referred to as puck line.
