Short on time today? So am I. I'm going with a quicker than usual format with a couple of plays I am locking in on my betting card this evening. I'm hoping to get to more player props and DFS content as the season progresses and my schedule opens up some.
So far on article plays this season I have a 1-2 record. Here is my favorite total and side play on this 4 game NHL slate tonight.
Favorite Total, Over 5.5 Montreal vs Vancouver 730 PM EST
This one is fairly simple. We have the second-worst team in expected goals allowed (Montreal) hosting a Vancouver team on a back-to-back who is 8th worst themselves in the same category.
However, offensively Montreal still grades out 9th in expected goals for, while Vancouver rates out 18th. If this hits 6, I would probably pump the brakes and stay off, but give me the over 5.5 goals here.
Favorite Team or Side, Seattle Kraken Moneyline -135
Anyone who knows me knows I was super low on this expansion Kraken the moment I saw their roster. So, tonight is certainly a first for me. Yes, this is my first time doing it and backing the Kraken.
This is a play on how bad I still think the Sabres are regardless of who's in net for the Kraken, as I see they are turning to Driedger in this one.
To this point in the season, both teams are down in the lower ten in terms of expected goals for percentage, something I talk about fairly frequently.
Both of these plays can go half unit, half unit, or whole unit, whole unit depending on how you look to set up your card for tonight.
