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 Edmonton Oilers on the moneyline. These odds sit at -104.
The Oilers have undoubtedly had their own struggles this year, and missing Connor McDavid tonight is far from ideal. But the Minnesota Wild have had some struggles of their own this year, too to kick off this season.
Say what you will about what the Oilers might be, I think this is a great rebound spot for them tonight.


Our second bet of the day will be taking Evan Bouchard to take over 2.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -105.
Evan Bouchard has been taking tons of shots on goal this season, firing 19 on net in five games. He’s cashed this prop in three games, hitting the five shot mark twice, and the seven mark once.
In the two games he didn’t cash, he took just one shot, but I like this spot tonight for him. This game has the feel of an Oilers team who is going to rally without their captain, and this line is nice for Bouchard.
Our third bet of the day will be taking David Pastrnak to take over 4.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -118.
Pastrnak has always been a high volume shooter, and this season is no different. He’s taken 23 shots in five games this year, hitting the over on this prop twice. But in the three games he didn’t cash, he fell just one shot short. I like this spot for him against a Chicago Blackhawks team that is… not good.
