Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the day.
Our first bet of the day will be taking Elias Pettersson to take over 2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -150.
Pettersson has been off to a great start this season scoring six goals and 17 points in 13 games. He’s taken 42 shots on goal, an average of 3.23 per game, and has cashed this prop in eight games. He’s hit the over in two of his last three games.
The Canucks take on the Montreal Canadiens tonight, a team that has given up 33.73 shots per hour, the eighth-worst rate in the league.

Our second bet of the day will be taking Alex Ovechkin to take over 4.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -105.
Ovechkin comes into the game leading the Caps in shots on goal by a mile taking 58 in 14 games. He’s got eight goals and 13 points on the year, and has always found success against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
While Ovechkin’s 4.14 shots on goal per game are down from his career average, but he’s still a high-volume shooter. He’s hit this prop in six of 14 games this year and has cashed in on it in two straight games.
A third bet of the day? Let’s get after it. We’ll be taking Mats Zuccarello to take over 2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -143.
He’s taken 35 shots in 12 games averaging 2.9 per game. He’s his this prop in six games this year, and comes in cold without hitting it in five straight. This is a great bounce-back, buy-low spot on him tonight.
He and his linemates on the Wild top line have one of the best matchups on the slate. They’re going up against a brutal Anaheim Ducks team that are allowing 39.62 shots per hour, the most of any team in the league.
Record: 31-20 (+10.24u)
