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 Jason Robertson to take over 3.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -143.
Robertson has been firing at will this season taking 50 more shots on goal than his closest teammate. He’s taken 122 in 28 games for an average of 4.36 — miles above his previous career numbers.
He’s hit this prop in four of his last five games and in 19 of 28 on the season. I like this spot for him tonight against a Penguins team who has given up 33.39 shots per hour in their last five games.
Our second bet of the day will be taking Brady Tkachuk to take over 4.5 shots on goal. These odds sit at -105.
Tkachuk comes into tonight’s matchup against the Anaheim Ducks taking 123 shots in 27 games for an average of 4.56 per game. He’s hit this prop in just two of his last five games, and in 13 of 27 on the season.
These two teams met once earlier this year, and Tkachuk finished the game with eight shots on goal. On top of that, the Ducks continue to bleed defensively allowing 38.18 shots per hour in their last five games.
Record: 62-42 (+20.21u)
