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 Oilers on the -1.5 puckline. These odds sit at +105.
The Oilers have rolled the Kraken virtually since they entered the NHL, winning seven of nine games outscoring them 41-26 over that stretch. And in six of those wins, the Oilers covered the -1.5 puckline.
Edmonton’s top line of Connor McDavid, Zach Hyman and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have all dominated the matchup, too. McDavid has 16 points in nine games, Hyman has 14 points in eight games, while Nugent-Hopkins has 11 points in eight games.
While on paper this is a tougher matchup, given the Kraken are still a good defensive team, the Oilers have just far too much firepower.
For that reason, we’re also dropping a unit each on Connor McDavid to score 2+ points at -125 and Zach Hyman to score 2+ points at +187.
Let’s see if the Oilers can keep the offence rolling tonight against a banged up Kraken squad.


Record: 53-54 (+4.66u, +4.31 ROI%)
Yesterday: 1-3 (-.7u, -28 ROI%)
Last 30: 15-12 (+7.6u, 29.76 ROI%)
