Risky Business: Oilers shooting for January perfection

Risky Business is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Life is pretty good around Oilersnation these days, and I couldn’t think of a better way to punctuate a fantastic month than for the Oilers to wrap it up with a 16th straight win. Obviously, I’ve never seen the boys go on a run like this before, and it’s been a real treat to watch after the October slog we all had to live through. Regardless of what other fanbases are saying, the fact that Edmonton hasn’t lost a game in 2024 is truly remarkable, regardless of who the opponents have been. Even though no one outside of the city wants to give this team any credit for what they’re doing, the fact remains that if winning 15 games in a row was so easy, then everyone would do it. I’ll say the same thing again today when the Oilers beat the Predators for win 16.
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 Nashville Predators.

Player Prop:

Leon Draisaitl anytime goal scorer at +105. My $5 bet would return $10.25.

Easy Money:

Over 62.5 total shots on goal at -116. My $5 bet would return $9.34.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl over 3+ points at +333. My $5 bet would return $21.66.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Edmonton Oilers win and over 5.5 total goals at +115. My $5 bet would return $10.75.


Last Game

It may not have been the prettiest win you’ll ever see, but the Oilers still managed to get the job done even though they did not have their A-game on display. Either way, you have to love the way the boys took the two points anyway, and also that the road to get there saw me win on 3/4 bets I put down. Great success.
Here’s what I bet against the Blackhawks:
  • Evan Bouchard to register one+ power play point at +175.
  • Over 60.5 total shots at -116. ✅
  • Connor McDavid to score 2+ goals at +400. ✅
  • Edmonton Oilers to win and Leon Draisaitl to register 2+ points at +125. ✅
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 Predators.
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.
