Risky Business: Dogs are barkin’

I don’t know how else to say this without sounding alarmist, but this game against the Arizona Coyotes is one that the Oilers absolutely have to win. Not only are the Coyotes wrapping up an extended road trip that has seen them away from home for basically a month, but they’re also just generally terrible and a team the Oilers should beat nine times out of 10. That said, we also know that lay-up games like this one tend to give our boys problems, and so it will be up to the Oilers to prove to us all that they’re ready to compete. After the way Monday’s game against the Capitals went, anything less than an all-out effort would be deeply troubling and I’m hoping the boys in the dressing room know that just as well as we do.
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 Coyotes:

Player Prop:

Leon Draisaitl over 3.5 shots on goal at +105. My $5 bet would return $10.25.

Easy Money:

Over 1.5 total power play goals at -105. My $5 bet would return $9.75.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins both to score at +400. My $5 bet would return $25.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Oilers to win and Connor McDavid to score at +175. My $5 bet would return $13.75.


Last Game

Remember when I said that the game against Washington felt like a trap? It was. Not only was it a loss on the board, but I’d argue that it was actually one of the worst games the Oilers have played. Had it not been for Stuart Skinner, Monday night could have gotten real ugly in a hurry.
  • Zach Hyman over 3.5 shots at +100. (Push, didn’t play)
  • Over 1.5 total power play goals at -118. ✅
  • Leon Draisaitl and Alex Ovechkin both to score at +300.
  • Edmonton over Washington on the ML, Colorado over Philly on the ML, and Calgary over Arizona on the ML at 3.22.
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 Coyotes.
