Risky Business: It’s leaves not Leafs

Is anyone else nervous about tonight’s game against the Leafs? It’s not that I don’t believe the Oilers can win this game — they absolutely can beat anybody in this league — but I’m worried about the number of mistakes they’re making right now. As much as it pains me to say, the Leafs are a damned good hockey club and they will absolutely torch you if given extra opportunities to create offence, and that’s something the Oilers will have to manage in a big way. So how will I approach betting on this game? With great caution, it’s the only thing that makes sense to me.
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 Leafs.

Player Prop:

Connor McDavid to score 1 goal and 1 assist at 2.10. My $5 bet would return $10.50.

Easy Money:

Over 7.5 total goals at 2.60. My $5 bet would return $13.00.

Risky Business:

Leon Draisaitl and Auston Matthews both to score 1 power play point at 4.00. My $5 bet would return $16.00.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

NYR over Philly on the money line, Dallas over Arizona on the money line, and Washington over Anaheim on the money line at 2.71. My $5 bet would return $13.59.


Last Game

A nightmare scenario in every possible way. Not only did the Oilers lose to the Bruins, but they also cost me all of the money I put down on the game.
  • Leon Draisaitl over 2.5 shots at 1.61.
  • Over 64.5 total shots on goal at 1.80.
  • Connor McDavid and David Pastrnak to both register an assist at 2.62.
  • Colorado over Vegas on the money line and Dallas over Vancouver on the money line at 2.38.
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 Leafs.
