Betway Bets of the Day — Three plays on tonight’s NHL slate
By Zach Laing3 months ago
Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the Day!
A huge 3-0 day yesterday, so let’s get back to it with a few more winners tonight.
The Bets of the Day are brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Our first bet of the day will be taking Evan Bouchard to take over 2.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -118.
Bouchard has fired 45 shots on goal in 14 games this year, cashing the over in eight of those games. He takes the most shots on goal per hour of ice-time of any defenceman on this slate, and the Oilers are projected to have a great matchup against the Kraken. On top of that, Seattle has one of the worst ranked penalty kills in the league, so with Bouchard leading the Oilers powerplay, they should see success.
We’re also going to take Bouchard to score a point. These odds sit at -134, and I love that number for this bet.
Our second bet of the day will be taking the Vancouver Canucks on the moneyline. These odds sit at -160.
A straightforward one here, as the Canucks have been red hot to start the season. They’ve been shooting the lights out performing well above average, but I have difficulty thinking regression will set in tonight for them. Look for them to roll Bo Horvat and the Islanders in his return to the West Coast.
Record: 26-24 (+2.19, 4.28 ROI%)
