Welcome back to Betway Bets of the Day, brought to you by NHL betting odds site Betway!     
Vancouver capped off a perfect road game with a 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday night. Ilya Mikheyev scored a goal and an assist to earn first star honours, and the Canucks are now ten points up on the Flames, just 25 games into the season.
Next up for Vancouver is a five game home stand starting against the New Jersey Devils, here are three bets I like for tonight’s game.

Player Prop

Jack Hughes to register over 4.5 shots at -118. My $10 bet would return $18.50. 
Hughes has started to find his stride again after an upper-body injury kept him out of the lineup. Hughes has been absolutely dominating the shot clock, hitting his over 4.5 in five straight games, and has tallied 37 shots in that span which is an average of 7.4 per game.
I like this trend to continue and will deploy .8 units on this play.

Player Prop

Elias Pettersson to score a power-play point at +100. My $10 bet would return $20.
My plan here was to take the Devils’ power-play to score a goal, but the odds are absolutely juiced at -225, which I can’t touch. Instead, we will go against the grain and take a guy who’s been struggling to produce on power-play in Pettersson, he looked really solid at even strength in Calgary and Vancouver’s first unit is way too skilled to stay off the score sheet for this long.
Put .8 units on Pettersson to bump his power-play slump, for a rare eye-test over statistical trend bet.

Main Markets

Both teams to combine for over 6.5 goals at -150. My $10 bet would return $16.66.
Vancouver ranks second in the league in goals per game. New Jersey ranks fourth in the league in goals per game. Vancouver ranks fourth in the NHL on the power-play, New Jersey ranks first in the NHL on the power-play. Two high-octane offences at Rogers Arena competing for the Hughes Bowl means lots of goals and taking the over for .8 units.

Last Game Bets

Artemi Panarin to register over 3.5 shots at +110. My $10 bet would return $21.  – HIT
Brad Marchand to register over 2.5 shots at -175. My $12.50 bet would return $19.64. – HIT
Jalen Hurts to score a rushing touchdown anytime at +100. My $10 bet would return $20. – HIT
Back-to-back three for threes! We staked $32.5o and returned $60.64. We are now up $109.70 on the year.
