The Bets of the Day is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway!
Welcome back to another edition of the Betway Bets of the day.
Our first bet of the day will be taking Tage Thompson to take over 3.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -134.
There are few hotter players than Tage Thompson right now. The towering No. 1 center for the Buffalo Sabres is coming off back-to-back performances aginst the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings where he’s scored five goals and nine points firing 17 shots on goal.
He’s tearing it up right now, and absolutely feeling it. Given his recent streak, the total on his shot prop has risen. He’s only hit this one in four of nine games, but I like this spot for him tonight.
The Sabres take on the Pittsburgh Penguins who have been allowing opponents to shoot at will. They’re allowing 35.3 shots against per hour, the fourth-worst rate in the league.

Our second bet of the day will be another from that game taking Victor Olofsson to take over 2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -125.
Olofsson is another player entering this game feeling good. He had a two goal performance last Saturday against Chicago, and has hit the over on this prop in three straight games.
Much like with Thompson, I like this spot against the Penguins for him.
Record: 23-14 (+9.17u)
