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!
Our first bet of the day will be taking the New Jersey Devils on the moneyline. These odds sit at -160.
The Devils are looking like a force to be reckoned with this season. They’re 6-2-1 to start the season, scoring the second-highest goals per hour this season, and have a great matchup tonight against a St. Louis Blues squad, who have sputtered out of the gate with a 3-4-1 record. St. Louis can’t score goals, with their 1.71 per hour rate the second worst in the entire league, and while their goals-against numbers aren’t terrible, they haven’t quite faced a team like New Jersey.
I think there’s tons of value on this Devils side, so we’re going to sprinkle the New Jersey -1.5 at +155 for half a unit, and New Jersey at -2.5 at +260 for a quarter unit.


Our second bet of the day will be taking Joel Farabee to take over 1.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -167.
Lots of juice here, but this is a nice spot for Farabee tonight. He’s cashed this prop in eight of 10 games this season, and he and his linemates on the Flyers’ second line have one of the best matchups on this little two game slate tonight.
Farabee’s one this, mind you, without playing any of his time on the Flyers’ power play, where some guys get an extra few minutes per night.
Record: 23-20 (+1.9u, +4.19 ROI%)
Yesterday: 1-2 (-.3u, -12 ROI%)
Last 7: 8-7 (+.96u, +6.67 ROI%)
