Risky Business: Betting on an Oilers win for the #NationVacation

It’s not often that I get this excited about putting bets down on an Oilers game, but that is absolutely the case this morning as we get set to head to Mullett Arena for the first of three matchups with the Arizona Coyotes.
If you missed it, there’s a crew of 50+ Nation Citizens that will be invading the rink at ASU for a game day experience like no other, and a big part of the festivities will be unloading the clip to manifest a win. Of course, betting with our hearts isn’t necessarily the smartest thing one could ever do, but I’ll be in the building and have to do my part.
In terms of what I’m actually betting, however, I think the approach is to cover the field as opposed to getting heavy on any individual bet or prop. If we’re being honest, the Oilers haven’t exactly played like world-beaters over the last couple of weeks, and that has me thinking that spreading the love around is the move this afternoon in Tempe.
If you’re following along at home, the odds I use for my game-day betting articles all season come from Betway. Here’s what I’m putting down against the Arizona Coyotes.

Player Prop:

Leon Draisaitl anytime goal scorer at +110. My $5 bet would return $10.50.

Easy Money:

Over 59.5 total shots on goal at -116. My $5 bet would return $9.34.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid both to score at +300. My $5 bet would return $20.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Oilers to win and over 6.5 total goals at +137. My $5 bet would return $11.87.


Last Game

I really cannot stand the Dallas Stars, and that makes going 2/4 on my bets all the more satisfying. The Oilers needed to win Saturday’s game, and to have it end up in a 4-3 Oilers OT win was a cherry on the sundae.
Here’s what I bet against the Blues:
  • Evan Bouchard over 2.5 shots at +120. ✅
  • Oilers over 33 total shots on goal at -105.
  • Evander Kane to score at +187.
  • Over 6.5 total goals and Leon Draisaitl to register 2+ points at +150. ✅
And there you have it, friends. Now you know what I’m betting on and how I did last game. As always, I put one unit down on each bet. Hit me up in the comments section to let me know what you’re looking at against the Arizona Coyotes.
It’s also worth noting that betting lines move throughout the day, so that may be the reason why what’s listed above doesn’t match what’s on Betway when you put together your own bets.
