Oilersnation Betway Bets of the Day — Take these shot props and Jonathan Huberdeau to score
By Zach Laing1 year ago
The Bets of the Day is brought to you by NHL betting 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 Connor McDavid to take over 3.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -138.
McDavid comes into this game leading the Oilers in shots on goal with 71 in 18 games. He’s taking just a shade under four shots on goal tonight, and despite the strength of the Devils defensively this year, I like this spot for McDavid.
He’s playing alongside Zach Hyman on the top line, a player who he has had lots of success with in the past. On top of that, McDavid has hit the over on this prop in 13 of 18 games this season and in three of his last five games.
When these two teams met in early November, McDavid finished the night with a goal and an assist and four shots on goal.
THE BETS OF THE DAY IS PRESENTED BY BETWAY
Our second bet of the day will be taking Jonathan Huberdeau to score a goal. These odds sit at +220.
This is our long shot of the day, but I like this spot for Huberdeau and his Flames against the Philadelphia Flyers. Huberdeau has been off to a slow start this season with just two goals and eight points in 14 games. His shooting just 7.4 percent on the season, well below his career average of 12.5 percent.
The matchup is great for Huberdeau to get off the schneide, too. The Flyers are a team who is giving up a staggering 4.28 goals against per hour in their last five games.
Our third bet of the day will be taking Timo Meier to take over 4.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -118.
Meier leads the league in shots on goal this season firing a staggering 95 shots on goal in 20 games, an average of 4.75 per game. He comes into this game against the Ottawa Senators hitting this prop in just one of his last five games, but it’s a great rebound spot for him tonight.
The Senators have allowed 35.47 shots against per 60 in the last five games, the fourth-worst rate in the league, so look for Meier to bounce back tonight.
Record: 43-29 (+15.20u)
