Saturday was a busy day in the NHL, with a dozen games. But Sunday features five contests, including some interesting rivalry games, the NHL’s hottest team playing in a back-to-back situation, and Connor Bedard heading to scenic Sunrise, Florida for the first time.
Primary Bet – Connor Bedard to score 2+ points (+375)
A $1 bet pays out $4.75 – Bedard has been the fuel in Chicago’s offensive engine this season, and he has 11 points through his first 12 games in the NHL. Florida’s quietly been a stingy defensive team this season – their 2.85 goals against average is eighth in the league – but a Sunday afternoon game in Florida seems like the kind of environment where Bedard could catch an opponent unaware. Given the decent payout here, Bedard getting multiple points feels like a reasonable gamble.
Secondary Bet – San Jose/Anaheim over 5.5 total goals (-180)
A $1 bet pays out $1.55 – All due respect to both teams, but neither has been a stout defensive group so far this season. (Heck, San Jose has averaged 4.43 goals against per game.) The payout isn’t huge, but this really doesn’t feel like a gigantic stretch given what we’ve seen so far from these two clubs.
Tertiary Bet – Vancouver/Montreal will have an overtime (+300)
A $1 bet pays out $4 – The Canucks lost in Toronto on Saturday night, leading to the using tittering online about “regression.” They’re playing in Montreal on Sunday in the second half of a back-to-back against a team that also played on Saturday. The Canucks are strong offensively and defensively this season, but Sunday’s game situation could lead to fatigue and execution issues. Montreal’s an average offensive and defensive team. This has the makings of a game that could be close (and perhaps a bit of a slog) and given the circumstances, it could be a good time to roll the dice on extra hockey occurring.
