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.
Our first bet of the day will be taking Alex Tuch to take over 2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -134.
Tuch has been off to a red hot start this year with six goals and eight points in as many games. He’s been firing the pills lots, too, taking 2.88 shots on goal per game — up from his career average of 2.43.
On the year, Tuch has hit this over in five of eight games, but has gone under in three of his last four. Tonight’s a good “get right” spot as the Sabres take on the Detroit Red Wings, who allow 33.63 shots against per hour — the 10th worst rate in the league.

Our second bet of the day will be taking Brent Burns to take over 2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -134.
Burns has quietly settled in this season with the Carolina Hurricanes nicely. He’s up to six points in eight games this year firing 28 shots on goal this season.
The over on this bet has hit in five of eight games so far this season and I like this spot for the Hurricanes tonight against the Washington Capitals.
Record: 20-12 (+9.02u)
