Risky Business is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
I’m going to be completely honest here and admit how poorly my betting game was on Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens. Not only did the Oilers get embarrassed by a not-so-great hockey team, but they caused all of us bettors to lose our shirts in the process. Needless to say, the boys will have to be a whole lot better in tonight’s rematch against the Detroit Red Wings. Instead of sitting back and waiting for the game to happen, they need to get back to pushing the pace and forcing the opponent to play Edmonton’s game rather than the other way around. And as we saw last week in Detroit, this is a Red Wings team that is beatable provided that our side can play as a unit instead of whatever was going on on Sunday morning. Personally, I’m feeling pretty good about this one.
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 Red Wings:

Player Prop:

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 2.5 shots at +105. My $5 bet would return $10.25.

Easy Money:

Total shots on goal over 62.5 at +110. My $5 bet would return $10.50.

Risky Business:

Oilers to win, over 6.5 total goals, and McDavid to score at +250.  My $5 bet would return $17.50.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Edmonton over Detroit on the money line, Toronto over Chicago on the money line, and Buffalo over Anaheim on the money line at 2.61. My $5 bet would return $13.05.


Last Game

My betting game was as flat as the Oilers were on Sunday, I suppose. Thankfully, I bet on the Chiefs to come back and win, which evened out my day overall but that morning’s game was a disaster.
  • Connor McDavid to score 1+ goal and 1+ assist at +110.
  • Zach Hyman over 3.5 total shots. ✅
  • Evander Kane to score 2+ goals at +600.
  • Oilers over Montreal on the money line, Washington over San Jose on the money line, and Vegas over Anaheim on the money line at 2.78.
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 Red Wings.
