Welcome back to Betway Bets of the Day brought to you by NHL betting odds site Betway! 
Vancouver finally snapped their recent stretch of win one-lose one, winning two straight games for the first time since defeating the Montreal Canadiens on November 12th and the New York Islanders on November 15th. A third period goal by Elias Pettersson was the difference between Vancouver and the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night as the Canucks took home a 4-3 victory.
Next up for Vancouver is a matchup with the always-potent Tampa Bay Lightning. Here are three bets I like for tonight’s game.

Player Prop

Nikita Kucherov to score two or more points at +100. My $10 bet would return $20. 
There’s two ways we can convince the public that this is a good bet, firstly Kucherov has scored two or more points in three of his last four games. The other angle to look at is to showcase how utterly dominant Kucherov has been against the Canucks scoring two or more points in six of their previous seven matchups.
I like this play at .8 units.

Main Markets

Both teams to score over 6.5 goals at -115. My $10 bet would return $18.69.
Both these teams possess some of the most potent players in the sport as both teams combine for six of the top 20 scorers in the league. In their three matchups in the calendar year 2023, all three games have hit the over 2.5. Put .8 units here again.

Player Props

Quinn Hughes to register an assist at -167. My $12.50 bet would return $20.
After a stretch of registering an assist in 12 out of 14 games, Hughes has gone quiet on that front only tallying an assist in one of his last five games. I’m going against the grain here and thinks he bumps his “slump” against a Tampa team that’s bottom three in goals against.
This is the only full unit play of the day for me.

Last Game Bets

Connor McDavid to register 2 or more points at -115. My $10 bet would return $18.69. – HIT
Jack Eichel to register over 3.5 shots at -143. My $12.5o bet would return $21.25. – MISSED
Fillip Forsberg to register over 3.5 shots at -150. My $10 bet would return $16.66 – MISSED
Another subpar day, we’ve been pretty average since our hot streak and need to be better, we staked $32.50 and returned $18.69. We are now up $105.16 on the year.
