Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the Day!
The Bets of the Day are brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
One thing is for certain: the first two games could not have been more different from a process perspective than I would have ever guessed. From lots of shots to no shots, from no saves to lots of saves – there’s not too much to go off of in terms of following along and making more educated selections.
With that being said, we’re still going to keep on trucking.
The first bet on the docket is for there to be less than 6.5 total goals in the match, with odds at -200.
The first two games saw a 3-0 and 4-1 score. This bet falls in line with how the first two games went, although the Oilers should be able to score more at home, the Panthers should struggle a bit. Add in the Panthers have been in town less than 24 hours – with their normal routine thrown off – and I don’t mind this.
Second up we are going to take some action following Connor McDavid. For him to get 2+ points, the odds are at -135.
If the Oilers want to stay alive in the series and avoid the dreaded three-to-zero deficit, their stars will have to find ways to get the puck in the net. Nobody will have more pressure on them than Connor McDavid, but he has shown the ability to rise to the occasion when it matters most in the past. The Oilers need him now more than ever and I think he can deliver.
For the third bet of the day, we have Zach Hyman as an anytime goalscorer, with odds at +110.
Pairing this with Connor getting two points and I like it. The man had 50+ goals for a reason with double-digit postseason totals. He’s been the guy to get them going more often than not this year and I feel he can help them find the back of the net in game three.
