Betway Bets of the Day — Will Connor Brown break through tonight?
By Zach Laing2 months ago
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 the Edmonton Oilers to score over 4.5 goals. These odds sit at -115.
The first ever match between Connor McDavid and Connor Bedard is set for Tuesday night, as the latters Chicago Blackhawks are in Edmonton. It’s a highly touted matchup, but one where the Oilers should have no problems rolling.
The Oilers enter the game on a seven-game win streak which has seen them score 35 goals — five per game — including a game where they dropped an eight spot on the Anaheim Ducks.
Chicago is one of the worst teams in the NHL, and the Oilers shouldn’t have much issue putting up a five-spot tonight.
Our second bet of the day will be taking Connor Brown to score a goal. These odds sit at +325 and will be a half-unit play.
We’re going to sprinkle on Brown finding twine tonight. He’s been getting closer and closer to breaking through, and had what would’ve been his first goal with the Oilers taken off the board Sunday against New Jersey. That being said, tonight’s matchup poses a great chance for him to get through, and given that he has 3.33 ixG to zero actual goals at 5v5 this season, he’s more than due.
Record: 39-39 (+1.37u, 1.71 ROI%)
