On paper, this is a game that the Edmonton Oilers should absolutely win. Not only are the Canucks horrible this year, but they’re also going through one of the weirdest scenes with a head coach that I can personally remember, which makes for an interesting opportunity to kick ’em while they’re down. As much as I feel bad for Bruce Boudreau — the Canucks are treating him like a real asshole despite not at all deserving it — I also believe that these are the types of situations that the Oilers need to take advantage of if they’re going to truly be considered Cup contenders. Can you beat a team like Vancouver that’s swirling the toilet bowl on their descent into mediocrity? I believe they can, and I’m planning on betting it.
If you’re following along at home, the odds I’ll be using for my game day betting articles all season come from Betway. Here’s what I’m putting down against the Canucks:
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to score at +187. My $5 bet would return $14.37.
Edmonton Oilers to win and Connor McDavid to register 2+ points at +125. My $5 bet would return $11.25.
Oilers to win every period at +900. My $5 bet would return $50.00.
Can’t Miss Parlay:
Toronto over Montreal on the money line, Carolina over NYI on the money line, and Dallas over Arizona on the money line at 2.65. My $5 bet would return $13.27.
RISKY BUSINESS PRESENTED BY BETWAY
This was one of those nights where my bets didn’t pay but the Oilers won, and I think I’m happy with that based on where we’re at in the season. A small sacrifice to manifest the win, ya know?
Zach Hyman over 3.5 shots at +110. Over 1.5 total power play goals at -110. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both to score at +250.
- Washington over Arizona on the money line and Florida over Montreal on the money line at 2.10. ✅
