The Bets of the Day are brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the day. All bets are for one unit unless otherwise noted.
Our lone bet of the day will be taking Mikael Backlund to take over 2.5 shots on goal and Jason Robertson to take over 2.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at +161.
Let’s try something different putting these two together on a double.
Among all NHL players over the last five games, Backlund is t-3rd in shots on goal firing 18 on net. He’s hit the over on this prop in each of those five games scoring three goals and six points. To say he’s hot is an understatement, and he’s got a good matchup tonight against the Arizona Coyotes, who have given up 36.03 shots against per hour in their last five games. Backlund’s odds alone sit at -175.
Heiskanen, meanwhile, comes into this game taking 13 shots on goal in his last five games, leading all Dallas Stars players. He’s hit this prop in four straight games, too. Dallas takes on the Chicago Blackhawks tonight who have given up 34.11 shots against per hour in their last five games, the 10th wrost rate in the league. Heiskanen’s odds sit at -150.
Record: 112-91 (+12.94u)
Last 30: 17-16 (-3.2u)
Last 7: 4-6 (-2.6u)
Yesterday: 0-2 (-2u)
