Recommended NHL Player Props Bets This Week
DraftKings Sportsbook offers odds for props bets for nearly every player. The options and numbers might seem overwhelming, so we singled out the 3 best player prop bets NHL enthusiasts can make use of.
|Player Prop Bet||Odds||Why It’s a Good Idea to Bet|
|Aaron Ekblad: Over 0.5 Power Points||+480||Ekblad has 3 Power Play Points so far in the playoff, so he’s likely to score at least one more.|
|Nick Cousins: Over 0.5 Assists||+310||During the postseason, Cousins recorded 4 assists, and he needs to make just half a point for the bet to be valid.|
|Aleksander Barkov: Under 0.5 Points||+155||So far, Barkov has 0 points in the finals, so he’s likely to continue on this streak.|
NHL Player Props Bet Analysis
Eckblad is a defensive player for the Florida Panthers; during the Stanley Cup Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights has 3 Power Play points – 1 goal and two assists. The upcoming game should be no exception, and we expect Eckblad to appear with either a Power Play goal or assist and get another point.
As a center for the VGK, Cousins gets plenty of chances to assist other players; during the regular season, he managed 18 assists and 4 during the postseason, but he has yet to assist in the final. The upcoming game is the perfect opportunity for Cousins to record his first assist in the final.
Barkov still hasn’t scored any points for the Panthers during the finals, but he has 7 for the postseason. It’s still possible that he might score, but it’s more likely for him to continue on his no-score streak, seeing as his stats for the past two games are unremarkable, although he spent 10+ minutes on the ice per game.
