Risky Business is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
With one regular season game left on the year, the Edmonton Oilers have the chance to win a franchise record ninth straight win, which is almost surprising given some of the team success from back in the day. Not only that, a win tonight would give the Oilers the chance to win not only the Pacific Division title but also the Western Conference title provided they get a little bit of luck from Seattle. While whatever Seattle does against Vegas is not in their control, you know the Oilers will be looking to finish up strong and that means I’m feeling bullish about what to expect for tonight’s fourth and final meeting with the Sharks. Not only are the Oilers the better team in every capacity, but San Jose also played last night in Calgary and should be ready to close up shop and head home. So what does that mean for my bets? TBH, I’m feeling frisky.
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:

Connor McDavid over 3.5 shots at -150. My $5 bet would return $8.33.

Easy Money:

Total shots over 64.5 at -118. My $5 bet would return $9.25.

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid and Evander Kane both to register 4+ shots on net at +220. My $5 bet would return $16.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Edmonton to beat San Jose on the money line, Dallas to beat St. Louis on the money line, and Tampa Bay to beat Detroit on the money line at 2.48. My $5 bet would return $12.40.


Last Game

How much fun was Tuesday’s win over the Colorado Avalanche? It was a tight, playoff-style game that saw both goaltenders stand on their head and our side close it out with PP goal in overtime. What’s not to like?
  • Evan Bouchard to score 1+ point at +105. ✅
  • Edmonton Oilers to score a power play goal at -167. ✅
  • Connor McDavid and Nathan MacKinnon both to score 1+ goal at +200.
  • Boston over Washington on the money line, Carolina over Detroit on the money line, and Pittsburgh over Chicago on the money line at 2.20.
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.
