No matter how I look at this game, all I can think about is how this is one the Oilers absolutely have to win. Not only are the points incredibly important right now, but the San Jose Sharks are absolutely terrible and anything less than two points would be a complete disaster. That said, I also know Jack Campbell is starting, and given the way he’s struggling right now, by no means is there anything guaranteed. That’s why my betting strategy for tonight’s game against San Jose will revolve around a lot of goals being scored. Even though I’m imagining that the Oilers are able to get the job done, I can also see this game hitting the over before the second period is even over, ya know?
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 Sharks.

Player Prop:

Oilers to win on the money line and Leon Draisaitl to register 2+ points at +120. My $5 bet would return $11.00.

Easy Money:

Over 7.5 total goals at +137. My $5 bet would return $11.87.

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid to score 2 or more goals at +400. My $5 bet would return $25.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Edmonton over San Jose on the money line, Colorado over Chicago on the money line, and Florida over Detroit on the money line at 2.46. My $5 bet would return $12.31.


Last Game

Not only did we have a great time at the Pint Downtown for our 15th anniversary party, but the Oilers were also able to come up with a huge win that they maybe didn’t deserve. Shout out to the Kraken for having awful goaltending, ya know?
  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins over 2.5 shots at +140.
  • Oilers over 3.5 total goals at -118. ✅
  • Connor McDavid anytime goal and an Oilers win at +145. ✅
  • Colorado over Detroit on the money line and Carolina over Philly on the money line at 2.28. ✅
  • Connor McDavid to score three or more goals at +2200.
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 Sharks.
