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 taking the Edmonton Oilers on the moneyline, with odds sitting at -115.
Count me in to back the Connor McDavid-less Oilers. I think this team has taken a big step forward in recent weeks in terms of their depth production, and while their superstar and face of the franchise won’t be on the ice Wednesday night against the Golden Knights, it’s the perfect opportunity for the team to have a statement game.
Our second bet of the day is taking Leon Draisaitl to score 2+ points, with odds sitting at +120.
There’s no better person to step in McDavid’s wake than Draisaitl. He’s having an incredible season in his own right, racking up 40 goals and 102 points in 76 games. Against Vegas, he’s had much success scoring 10 goals and 25 points, and I can see that continuing tonight.
Record: 107-122 (-4.76u)
Last 30: 22-21 (+3.77u)
2022-23 season: 155-149 (+16.82u)
