welcome back Betway Bets of the day! All bets are for one unit unless otherwise stated.
The NHL’s first star of the week is coming into tonight riding off a 3-game performance last week. Hyman found the back of the net in all three games last week, scoring four goals in that span. Hyman is scoring at a career-setting pace this season, scoring 24 goals over his first 47 games. With Hyman 4 goals away from surpassing his career high, his matchup tonight should help him get closer to that number.
Hyman is set to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight, who are tied for last place in the NHL. Columbus allows both the third most goals per game (3.89) and the second most shots per game (35.2). With Hyman having a great matchup, he is projected to skate with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl tonight.
Our second bet of the day Brent Burns o2.5 shots on goal. This line sits at -150.
Barnes has been as consistent in hitting their shot props as he is hitting 2.5 shots in eight straight games. During that impressive streak, Barnes averaged 3.5 shots on goal per contest. In his first year with the Carolina Hurricanes, Barnes had 148 shots in 46 games (3.2 shots per game average).
The Carolina Hurricanes and Brent Barnes travel to Dallas tonight to take on the Central Division-leading Stars. Dallas is right in the middle of the league in shots on goal allowed, as their 31 shots per game ranks 15th in the NHL. With Burns’ consistency hitting his shot props, I like this spot for him again.
