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 is on Nikita Kucherov to score 1+ power play point, with odds sitting at -118.
Our second bet of the day is on Steven Stamkos to score 1+ power play point, with odds sitting at +140.
The Tampa Bay Lightning boast the league’s best power play, converting on 28.9 percent of their chances, while the San Jose Sharks, Tampa’s opponent, have the fifth worst penalty kill, at 74.4 percent. Without complicating things too much, the Bolts are in a great spot here, and Kucherov and Stamkos have combined on 26 of their 60 power play goal this season, with the first and second most points there on the team.
Our third bet of the day is on Connor Bedard to score 1+ power play point, with odds sitting at +162. This bet will be for half a unit.
Our fourth bet of the day is on Philipp Kurashev to score 1+ power play point, with odds sitting at +200. This bet will also be for half a unit.
The Chicago Blackhawks’ power play has struggled this year, converting on just 16.1 percent of their attempts, the fifth-worst rate in the league, but the Anaheim Ducks’ penalty kill allows goals on 73.2 percent of their chances, the third worst rate in the league. Still, Daily Faceoff’s DFS Charts have the Blackhawks power play as the top-ranked unit on this slate, expected to score .95 man advantage goals.
These teams met nine days ago, and Chicago scored four power play goals, with Bedard having three assists, and Kurashev having a goal and an assist. They’ve combined before in this spot, so let’s see if they can do it again tonight.
Record: 102-116 (-6.74u)
Yesterday: 2-1 (+1.42u)
Last 7: 8-10 (-.7u)
Last 30: 29-25 (+6.75u)
2022-23 season: 155-149 (+16.82u)
