The Bets of the Day is brought to you by NHL lines site Betway!
Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the day. All bets are for one unit unless otherwise noted.
Our first bet of the day will be taking Nikita Kucherov to take over 3.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at +105.
Kucherov comes into this game having taken 15 shots on goal in his last five games hitting this prop in just one of them. He’s averaging 3.5 shots on goal on the season, and has hit this prop in 15/32 games on the season.
I like this spot for him tonight as a bounce-back against a Montreal Canadiens team giving up 33.67 shots per hour in their last five games, the 9th worst-rate in the league.
Our second bet of the day will be taking Mark Stone to take over 2.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -167.
Stone comes into this matchup against the Anaheim Ducks having taken 23 shots in his last five games, tied for fourth in the NHL. He’s hit this prop in four of those games and in 22/37 games on the season.
Anaheim continues to bleed shots against, so we’ll continue targeting them with these props. They’ve allowed 40.08 shots against per hour in their last five games, worst in the league by nearly two and a half shots.
Record: 71-52 (+17.63u)
