Bets We Like With a Hurricanes Win

Hurricanes to Score First and Win the Game (+105, DraftKings)

Carolina has the speed and talent edge up front in this showdown. With some of the inconsistent starts we’ve seen from the Blackhawks this season, I would take a long look at the the Hurricanes to get out of the gate quickly and score first to set the tempo of this game.

Bets We Like With a Blackhawks Win

Patrick Kane to Score a Goal Anytime (+195, DraftKings)

The 14-year veteran leads the Blackhawks with 35 shots on goal this season. He’s been rewarded with four goals thus far. I like for “Showtime” to score once again after picking up a goal on Sunday against Columbus. Kane only has two goals and seven assists in 16 career games against Carolina, but with this being the first of eight meetings this season, I like for the former MVP to become acquainted with the ‘Canes goaltenders starting with tonight. Ultimately, for the Blackhawks to get by a superior team in terms of talent, the veteran will need to lead the way.

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome

Goal Scored in the First 10 Minutes (NO +107, DraftKings)

The Blackhawks have played in 10 games this season,  Seven of the contests have seen the first goal scored after the 10:00 mark of the opening frame. Carolina is 3-3 in this metric over their six contests. With the slower pace that the Hawks continue to open games with, I expect this prop to cash once again this evening.

Hurricanes vs. Blackhawks Prediction

The Blackhawks had a nice win Sunday after playing well in a tough loss on Friday, but now with Carolina in town, this is a big step up in class, and I like the Hurricanes to get the 4-2 victory tonight on the road.
