Get informed

There’s not much to go on in the early season in terms of reliable numbers and data to make the most informed decision. You are the most blind to what is going to happen this season at it’s start. As such, looking back at last year is the best thing you can do.
The Jets run a decently defence first system under Rick Bowness, with Connor Hellebuyck in net that will remain true. The Flames however still have their defence coach, albeit now as their head coach, and brought in a power play specialist to help them gain more offence.
It should still be a high shooting affair but if there is any penalty trouble be ready for the Flames to take off.

Primary Bet – Jonathan Huberdeau to get 1+ assists (+140)

Here a $1 bet pays out $2.40 – Huberdeau has a new coach who will hopefully get him back to where he was before arriving in Calgary. He was over a point per game for 4 straight seasons before arriving in Alberta – he’s going to get started on his redemption arc tonight.

Secondary Bet – Total shots on goal over 64.5 (+100)

A $1 bet pays out $2 here – first game of the new season both teams are going to be shooting the puck. Try simple shots to create simple things and get your feet under you. 33 shots aside is all that is needed, have fun keeping track hoping the over hits.

Tertiary Bet – Calgary Flames to win ML + Mark Scheifele to get 1+ points (+225)

A $1 bet pays out $3.25 – I really do think the Flames shock everyone and come out scoring, their roster hardly lost any talent and they’ve only added to it with Matt Coronato being in the top 6 (and not in the press box). Will Markstrom hold up is the main question, not well enough to keep Winnipeg’s top guys off the board. This is the big bet of the day, also the most risky as two things need to happen to cash in.
