Welcome back to Betway Bets of the Day brought to you by NHL betting odds site Betway! 
Wednesday will feature a quiet three-game NHL slate, headlined by an all Pacific Division matchup between the Seattle Kraken and the LA Kings. LA looks an inch closer to the top spot in the division, as they trail the Vegas Golden Knights by seven points, but have five games in hand.
With such a low volume of NHL games, we will be giving you a special NHL and NBA edition of the Betway Bets of the Day!

Player Prop

Alex Ovechkin to score anytime at +140. My $10 bet would return $24. 
Ovechkin is unquestionably having the worst season of his career, scoring only five goals in 28 games (a mere 15 goal pace). The second leading goal scorer in NHL history has not scored in 14 games, the longest stretch of his career.
Ovechkin has gotten extremely close to scoring recently and has tallied 14 shots in his last three games. I like this streak to end against a below average defensive team in the Islanders. Put .8 units here.

Player Prop

Lebron James to register over 7.5 assist at -160. My $12.50 bet would return $20.31.
LeBron’s playmaking skills have been in full effect as of late, as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer has registered over 7.5 assists in five straight games,  in that span James has tallied 53 assists, which is an average of 10.3 per game.
This is a perfect spot for this trend to continue, as James’ running mate Anthony Davis will likely be the primary scorer tonight as he’s set to play in his hometown of Chicago, meaning ample playmaking opportunity for King James. We will deploy a full unit on this play.

Player Prop

Jamal Murray to register over 19.5 points per game at -120. My $10 bet would return $18.33.
Murray has played six games since returning from injury and on minute restrictions and has hit 20 points in four of those games. Murray will be playing in front of friends and family in Toronto tonight in a game with a low spread, meaning this is the perfect spot for him.
put .8 units on this play.

Last Game Bets

Elias Pettersson to register over 2.5 shots on goal at -134. My $10 bet would return $17.50  – HIT
Elias Pettersson to score anytime at +155. My $10 bet $25.50 – HIT
Vancouver to score a power-play goal at -134. My $10 bet would return $17.50. – MISSED
Pettersson came thru for us, we staked $30 and returned 43. We are now up $138.79(11.1 units)  on the year.
