Welcome back to Betway Bets of the Day brought to you by NHL betting odds site Betway!
Despite being outshot 40-17, the Canucks were able to knock off the hottest team in hockey, the LA Kings, 3-2 in a shootout. JT Miller continued his string of strong play scoring two points and the game winner in the shootout.
The Canucks will complete the California back to back against the Anaheim Ducks. Here are three bets I like for tonight’s game.
Player Prop 
Elias Pettersson to register over 3.5 shots at -118. My $10 bet would return $18.50. 
The bookies have recently moved Pettersson’s line to 3.5, thus why we’ve taken it a lot less, but Anaheim gives up the most shots in the NHL and we’re going to hammer it tonight.
Special Teams 
Vancouver to score on the power play at -143. My $10 bet would return $17.
A late power play goal saved the Canucks last night against the Kings. I like them a lot here against the 31st ranked Anaheim Ducks penalty kill. Anaheim also ranks top five in penalties taken, so Vancouver will likely have at least a few opportunities.
Over/Under
The game to end with over 6.5 goals at -125. My $10 bet would return $18.
Yes, the Canucks have been playing much better defensively recently, but much of that can be attributed to Thacher Demko masking their deficiencies.
Vancouver and Anaheim are ranked 32nd and 29th in goals against this season and I expect another high scoring affair tonight, with Collin Delia presumably in net.
Last Game Bets 
JT Miller to register over 2.5 shots at -134. My $10 bet would return $17.50. – MISSED
Vancouver to score a power play goal at +130. My $10 bet would return $23.- HIT
LA to win money line and Elias Pettersson to score a point at +100. My $10 bet would return $20. – MISSED
We staked $30 and returned $23, we are now up $41.47 on the year.
