Welcome to our game day content brought to you by NHL Lines site Betway!
Welcome to the Betway Bets of the Day! Every single game day we are going to provide you with some recommended bets while also showing the value behind placing said bets.
To start everything off lets look at how Calgary’s attack has looked as well as the Hurricanes defence.
There isn’t much overlap to see here – the Hurricanes have defended extremely well thus far and are one of the best teams in the league statistically because of it. Its going to be a real test for everyone involved to score. Calgary has some holes defending in the upper slot but one game without a top 4 defender can do that to a team.
Primary Bet – Andrei Svechnikov & Nazem Kadri each to get 1+ points (+150)
Svechnikov is running a 60.76 xGF% while Kadri is rocking a 60.57%. By adding Svechnikov to the line it increases the odds and increase the payout. Two guys both earning 60% of their expected goals share to just get a singular point – well worth the risk.
At +150 a $5 bet pays out $12.50
Secondary Bet – Andrew Mangiapane to get 1+ assist (+200)
Mangiapane himself is flying with an even higher xGF% than either Svechnikov or Kadri – 62.1% to be exact. Pat Steinberg tweeted out Friday that the line combinations were back to normal at practice so the buzzsaw line of Mangiapane – Kadri – Dubé should be back together. It’s not the primary bet because Mangiapane is typically the goalscorer, but when you crash the crease like him assists can come from cleaning up the garbage in the crease as well.
At +200 a $5 bet pays out $15.00
Tertiary Bet – Calgary Flames 32+ shots on goal (-118)
The Flames have fired over 40 on net the last three games in a row and hit 27 against Colorado on opening night. It’s still very early in the season – things don’t get considered normalized until there’s over 30 for sample size and even then you want about double to truly be more accurate. The Hurricanes opponents to date haven’t been top of the table teams – CBJ, SJS, SEA, and EDM. Outside of the Oilers they haven’t seen a real test – Calgary should be that test.
At -118 a $5 bet pays out $9.25
