The Bets of the Day is brought to you by NHL lines site Betway!
Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the day. All bets are for one unit unless otherwise noted.
Our first bet of the day will be taking Dylan Larkin to take over 2.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -150.
Larkin comes into this matchup against the Buffalo Sabres averaging 3.4 shots on goal this season. Hes hit this prop in 20 of 32 games on the year, and in two straight.
Larkin and the Red Wings have a solid matchup tonight against a Sabres club giving up 37.2 shots per hour in their last five games, the third-worst rate in the league.
Our second bet of the day will be taking Timo Meier to take over 4.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at +110.
I’m always happy to get Timo Meier’s shot prop at plus money like this. He comes into Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers second in the league in shots with 165 in 36 games, an average of 4.58 per game. He’s hit this prop in two of his last five games and in 18 of 36 on the season.
Tonight, however, he has a great matchup against a Flyers team giving up 37.6 shots per hour in their last five games, the second-worst rate in the league.
Record: 72-53 (+17.53u)
