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 Jack Eichel to score 1+ power play point,  with odds at +130.
We have one last night to bet against the Anaheim Ducks penalty kill, and I refuse to pass up that opportunity. Eichel leads all Golden Knights in power play points this year, with 21 in 62 games on the season, five of which have come in his last 10 games.
The Ducks’ road penalty kill is 11 percent worse than at home, so with them visiting Vegas tonight, this only adds to my despite to lay this one.
And now that I think about it, let’s also back Noah Hanifin to score 1+ power play point, with odds at +250. This will be for a half unit. In his last 10, he’s also got five power play points, so let’s see if these two can combine tonight.
Our second bet of the day is on under 5.5 goals between the Kings and Blackhawks, with odds at +105.
I see no reason for the over to hit here tonight. These two teams have been among the strongest under teams on the season, with the Kings going 48-30-3 returning +16.35 units, while the Blackhawks are 44-30-7, returning +12.25 units. Those are the second and fourth best returns among any team this season.
On the last night of the regular season, with nothing to play for, this should be a quiet game.
Record: 113-130 (-6.25u)
Yesterday: 2-3 (-.61u)
Last 7: 6-6 (-.49u)
Last 30: 19-21 (+.81u)
2022-23 season: 155-149 (+16.82u)
