Risky Business is brought to you by NHL betting site Betway!
The Oilers really need to win this one, don’t they? Not that are any easy games in the NHL, that’s not what I’m saying, but I absolutely feel like the Islanders are the team that the Oilers need to beat on this road trip. That said, the boys are playing such inconsistent hockey right now that it makes betting on them almost impossible, and that’s why I’m taking a much more cautious approach for the rest of the road trip or at least until they look like the ship is turning around.
If you’re following along at home, the odds I’ll be using for my game day betting articles all season come from Betway. Here’s what I’m putting down against the Islanders:

Player Prop:

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to score at +225. My $5 bet would return $16.25.

Easy Money:

Over 1.5 total power play goals. My $5 bet would return $10.50.

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid to score and the Edmonton Oilers to win at +300. My $5 bet would return $20.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Carolina over Arizona on ML, Washington over Philly on ML, and Dallas over Chicago on ML at 2.42. My $5 bet would return $12.14.


Last Game

Killed again and my bankroll is hurting because the Oilers just cannot pull it together. Brutal run for your boy right now.
  • Evan Bouchard over 2.5 shots at +130.
  • Over 63.5 total shots at -118.
  • Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score.
  • Calgary over Philly on ML, Toronto over NYI on ML, and St. Louis over Anaheim on ML at 3.41.
And there you have it, friends. Now that you know what I’m betting on — I’ll be throwing one unit down on each bet, for the record — feel free to hit me up in the comments section to let me know what you’re looking at against the Islanders.
