Risky Business is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Is anyone else starting to stress about the fact that there are only 14 more games left this season? Can’t be just me, right? I mean, no matter what happens with the Oilers, it seems like they can’t make up any ground on the three teams ahead of them even though they’re only up by a few points. As much as I want to believe that we’re destined for a playoff spot, the reality is that there is no certainty yet that the Oilers are going to get in and it’s starting to bother me more than expected. And really, the only answer for Edmonton is to start stringing some wins together here because this win two, lose one, win one, lose two rhythm they’re in isn’t going to cut it. So what does that mean for tonight’s bets against the Senators? Cautious optimism, my friends.
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 Senators.

Player Prop:

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 2.5 shots at +140. My $5 bet would return $12.00.

Easy Money:

Over 1.5 total power play goals at -105. My $5 bet would return $9.76.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl to score 1+ goal and register 1+ assist at +200. My $5 bet would return $15.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

NYR over Washington on the money line, Vegas over Philly on the money line, and Boston over Chicago on the money line at 3.03. My $5 bet would return $15.15.


Last Game

Even though I’m happy to even out on my bets from Saturday night, that loss still stings. Not only was I in the building for the collapse, but now I’ve had Hall and Oates stuck in my head for the last three days. It hurts, people. It hurts.
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 2.5 shots at +155.
  • Over 1.5 total power play goals at -125. ✅
  • Connor McDavid over 1.5 goals at +385.
  • New Jersey over Montreal on the money line, Colorado over Arizona on the money line, and Pittsburgh over Philly on the money line at +134. ✅
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 Senators.
