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 Leon Draisaitl to take over 2.5 shots on goal, with odds at +100, and will be for two units.
This is an excellent spot for Draisaitl tonight. Over the last two playoff series, he’s cashed this prop in nine of 13 playoff games against the LA Kings. Draisaitl’s shots per game rate this season was the lowest he’s had since the 2017-18 season, but at 2.68 per game, he’s still doing well.
On top of that, he cashed this bet in three of four games against the Kings in the regular season this year. He and his linemates on the Oilers’ second line have the strongest matchup against the Kings, so he should have more than enough chances to cash this one.
Our second bet of the day is on Connor McDavid to score 2+ points, with odds at -110.
McDavid loves playing against the Kings. In the last two playoff series against them, he’s scored seven goals and 24 points in 13 games, cashing this prop in 10 of them. He also cashed this prop in three of four regular season games this season, so it’s hard not to like this spot tonight.
Our third bet of the day is on Wyatt Johnston to take over 2.5 shots on goal, with odds sitting at -138.
Johnston has cashed this prop in three of six career games against the Golden Knights, and in 43 of 82 games on the season. He and his linemates on the Dallas Stars’ third line look like they have a great matchup on Vegas, so the Stars’ leading goal scorer in the regular season will look to get things started off on the right foot.
Record: 114-134 (-8.45u)
Yesterday (Thursday): 1-2 (-.2u)
Last 7: 5-8 (-2.76u)
Last 30: 10-16 (-3.83u)
2022-23 season: 155-149 (+16.82u)
