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 Kirill Kaprizov to take over 3.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -150.
Kaprizov comes into Friday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks having taken 121 shots on goal in 29 games this season. His 4.17 shots on goal per game are far and away a career-high, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
He comes into this game hitting this prop in just two of his last five games and in 16 of 29 on the season. In a previous meeting between these two teams, Kaprizov finished with three shots.
I like this matchup given how weak the Blackhawks are defensively. In their last five games, they’ve allowed 31.2 shots against per hour in their last five games, the 10th-worst rate in the NHL.
Record: 65-45 (+20.16u)
