Risky Business: Battle of Alberta Edition

I’m not going to lie, the first chapter of my adventures in sports betting did not go very well on Wednesday night, but I’m hopeful for better results tonight against Calgary. Dare to dream?

Player Prop:

Pretty self-explanatory. Today’s player prop that I’ve locked in is Leon Draisaitl over 1.5 points at +110.

Easy Money:

Easy money is the bet that I think is an absolute lock regardless of what happens. It’s the one where you already consider the winnings to be in your pocket, and for me, here on opening night, that bet is over 1.5 goals in the first period at -160.

Risky Business is the bet I’m putting down that’s got great odds but maybe won’t be the most likely thing to happen. Put another way, I bet on Patrick Russell scoring a goal a few times last season and I would have filed that under the Risky Business tab. Today, I’m looking at Tyson Barrie to score at +450.
