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 Warren Foegele to take over 1.5 shots on goal, with odds at -135.
Our second bet of the day is on Foegele as an anytime goalscorer, with odds at +375. This bet will be for half a unit.
It’s time for the Oilers’ depth to get going, and there’s no better time than now. Foegele is a guy I’m looking at to step up tonight, rekindling some of that Contract Year Warren Foegele Magic from the regular season, when he scored 20 goals and 41 points, setting career highs in both categories.
His playoffs have largely been disappointing, scoring just one goal and one assist in 11 games, but it’s not for lack of trying. According to Natural Stat Trick, he’s accumulated 1.08 individual expected goals against Vancouver but hasn’t found the back of the net yet against them.
Edmonton must find a goal from their bottom six tonight in a crucial Game 7, and Foegele is due for one.
Our third bet of the day is on Evander Kane to score 1+ point, with odds at +100.
After a regular season in which he struggled for long stretches, Evander Kane has been turning his game on at the right time of year. He’s scored four goals and seven points in 11 games, with two goals and four points coming against Vancouver. Both goals came in Games 5 and 6 and were big reasons the Oilers were able to force this series to seven games.
If Edmonton wants to head to the Western Conference Finals, a big night from Kane wouldn’t hurt.
Our fourth bet of the day is on Dylan Holloway as an anytime goalscorer, with odds at +375. This bet will be for half a unit.
Let’s sprinkle in on Holloway getting a goal, and really lean into the depth scoring narrative tonight.
