Risky Business: Duck a L’Orange

Risky Business is brought to you by NHL Lines site Betway!
Given how tight the top of the Pacific Division standings are right now, games against teams like the Anaheim Ducks are ones that the Oilers absolutely have to win. Even though I’m expecting and betting on a high-scoring affair, what I care about most is that the team walks away with two points, meaning they can’t play down to their competition in any way, shape, or form. The Ducks suck so bad that I’m expecting the Oilers to flex on them in a big way, and the bets I’m putting down are going to reflect that belief. Is that smart? No, probably not because we’ve been hurt before, but I truly believe the Oilers are going to be fired up after the way they pissed away two points against St. Louis.
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 Ducks:

Player Prop:

Leon Draisaitl to score 1+ goal and 1+ assist at +140. My $5 bet would return $12.00.

Easy Money:

Edmonton to win on the money and over 5.5 goals at -113. My $5 bet would return $9.45.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman both to score at +300. My $5 bet would return $20.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Edmonton over Anaheim on the puck line, Tampa Bay over Montreal on the moneyline, and Boston over Columbus on the moneyline at 3.03. My $5 bet would return $15.23.


Last Game

I’m still annoyed about the result against the Blues, if I’m being honest. Not only did the Oilers lose a game that was theirs for the taking, but the disallowed OT goal also caused me to lose $18 and that’s upsetting in its own right.
  • Zach Hyman over 3.5 shots at +110.
  • Over 1.5 total power play goals at -110. ✅
  • Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +250. (Thanks, Toronto)
  • Vegas over Chicago on the moneyline, Boston over LA on the moneyline, and New Jersey over Philly on the moneyline at 2.99.
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 Ducks.
