Betway Bets of the Day — Backing the Avalanche and Devils
By Zach Laing2 months ago
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 Colorado Avalanche on the puckline. These odds sit at -125.
The Avalanche should have no problem rolling Colorado tonight, but I thought the same thing last Saturday night, when the Ducks beat them in the shootout.
That being said, Colorado is simply too good of a team to not be able to rebound, and I like the chances of them doing so tonight.
Our second bet of the day will be taking the New Jersey Devils on the moneyline. These odds sit at -115.
Vancouver this, Vancouver that — these Devils are for real. They’re firing on all cylinders in the Metro Division, even though they’ve been sunk by a goaltending duo of Vitek Vanecek and Akira Schmid, who have combined for a .884 save percentage. Despite that, they matchup well against the Canucks tonight, a team that has struggled to control play at 5v5, despite their own torrid start to the season.
I like New Jersey here in a game that should shootout.
Record: 36-37 (-.23u, -.31 ROI%)
