welcome back Betway Bets of the day! All bets are for one unit unless otherwise stated.
Connor enters tonight ranked in the top 20 in the NHL in shots (167). That number puts him atop the Jets roster in that category, and based on his matchup, Connor will likely continue his shoot-first mentality tonight. Connor and the Winnipeg Jets travel to Nashville tonight for a Central Division matchup. The Preds are allowing an average of 34.4 shots per game this season, fourth-highest among all NHL teams.
His in-season success has also translated into his past handful of games. Connor hit 3.5 shots in three of his last four. Over that four-game span, Connor averaged an impressive 5.75 shots per 60. Based on his matchup tonight, and a combination of his recent and offseason success, I fully expect Connor to continue to find shooting lanes tonight.
Our second bet of the day Vegas Golden Knight Money Line. This line sits at +145.
Despite a strong season for the Devils this season, it has yet to translate to their home record. Vegas travels to New Jersey tonight, and the Devils enter Tuesday night with a home record of 12-10-2. With the Devils not being the same type of team at home, the Vegas Golden Knights will look to take advantage of that tonight. Vegas comes to New Jersey with an away record of 15-4-2 this season.
Even though the Devils have had a memorable season, I like this bet of the day based on the price paid. Yes, the Golden Knights have been struggling of late, but if the first place team in the Pacific Division is at “+145”, you’ll take it every time…especially when they’re on the road.
