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 Nathan MacKinnon to take over 4.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -134.
Nathan MacKinnon loves to shoot the puck, there’s no denying that. The super star has taken 269 shots so far this season, averaging 4.72 per game. While it’s down from the staggering 5.15 he took last year, it’s still an elite number and over his last 25 games, his 13.1 shots per hour are third among regular forwards playing tonight. Given the Avalanche’s matchup against the Detroit Red Wings, a team that allows the seventh most shots per hour this season, this is a spot I love tonight.


Our second bet of the day will be taking Sidney Crosby to take over 3.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -134.
He may not be able to do it, but Sidney Crosby is going to do his damnest to drag the Pittsburgh Penguins into the playoffs. Crosby, who has a great matchup against the Montreal Canadiens tonight, has taken 9.8 shots per hour in his last 25 games, most among all Pens forwards, while the Habs have given up the third most shots against per hour this season.
