Risky Business is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Everybody knows that the Vegas Golden Knights knocked the Oilers out of the second round of the playoffs last spring and went on to win the Stanley Cup. I still maintain that the Oilers lost that series more so than Vegas going out and winning it, but I’m biased, and I don’t pretend to hide it. Tonight marks the first meeting between these two clubs since Game 6 of that second round, and I’m expecting things to get a little bit spicy. On one hand, the Oilers are fighting to get back into the playoff mix, while the Golden Knights have lost seven of their last 10 games. If ever there was a time for a revenge game, it’s right now. And yeah, I know that beating Vegas tonight doesn’t do much to wipe away the pain of losing in the playoffs, but it’s a game the Oilers need to have for both the standings and the spiritual well-being of this comeback attempt.
If you’re following along at home, the odds I’m using for my game day betting articles all season come from Betway. Here’s what I’m putting down against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Player Prop:

Evan Bouchard over 2.5 shots on goal at +110. My $5 bet would return $10.50.

Easy Money:

Over 61.5 total shots on goal at -116. My $5 bet would return $9.34.

Risky Business:

Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +375.  My $5 bet would return $23.75.

Can’t Miss Parlay:

Oilers to win and over 5.5 total goals at +162. My $5 bet would return $13.12.


Last Game

This was my first betting sweep of the season, and it feels goooooooood. Not only did the Oilers handle their business, but every single bet I put down cashed, which meant that my bankroll was flush once again. It’s been a minute since that happened, and I’m very excited about not only the money but also that the Oilers dominated in a game we all expected them to win.
Here’s what I bet against the Ducks:
  • Leon Draisaitl anytime goal scorer at +100. ✅
  • Over 1.5 total power play goals at -125. ✅
  • Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +275. ✅
  • Edmonton Oilers moneyline and over 6.5 total goals at +120. ✅
And there you have it, friends. Now you know what I’m betting on and how I did last game. As always, I put one unit down on each bet. Hit me up in the comments section to let me know what you’re looking at against the Golden Knights.
It’s also worth noting that betting lines move throughout the day, so that may be the reason why what’s listed above doesn’t match what’s on Betway when you put together your own bets.
