The thing I noticed most in Game 1 was that Vegas isn’t going to give the Oilers anywhere near the time and space to get set up that the Kings did in the first round. Todd McLellan had those boys sitting back like they had nothing else to do, but to put it lightly, the Golden Knights are a whole lot more aggressive in their approach. Quicker decisions and patience have to be the approach for Edmonton as they look to rebound from what was an ugly game on Wednesday night. As for me, I’ll be doing my part to manifest a win with some tactical Oilers bets while screaming my face off at T-Mobile Arena.
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 Golden Knights.

Player Prop:

Connor McDavid over 3.5 shots at -167. My $5 bet would return $8.00.

Easy Money:

Oilers over 32.5 shots at -118. My $5 bet would return $9.25

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +220. My $5 bet would return $16.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Oilers to win and over 5.5 total goals at +150. My $5 bet would return $12.50.


Last Game

I was so unhappy on Wednesday night that it’s honestly hard to describe. It wasn’t so much that the Oilers lost but rather how they lost that bothered me, and I’m demanding a much better effort tonight in Game 2. To make matters worse, I got killed.
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to score at +200.
  • Over 63.5 total shots at -118.
  • Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +225.
  • Oilers to win and over 5.5 total goals at +160.
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 Golden Knights.
