Best player prop bets for Friday's NHL slate: Makar to assist a Colorado bounce back
We’ve got a seven-game slate for Friday’s NHL card, and that means there are plenty of opportunities for value. Right now, we’re going to be focusing on player props, bringing you a few of our favorite props. Before you bet these, make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game.
T.J. Oshie Over 0.5 Points (-122)
The Washington Capitals are coming off a 4-2 defeat to Boston on Thursday, however given the fact they will be playing Buffalo tonight, there is reason to back a player from their team here. We have gone with this player before and that is T.J. Oshie. I realize he is not Alex Ovechkin or even Nicolas Backstrom, but Oshie has provided more than his fair share of offense. He is fourth on the team with 29 points, but his recent surge in production looks promising tonight. That being the fact that he has had at least 0ne point is six of the last eight games. He has nine points in his last six games, so at a reasonable price, we like his over.

Kevin Fiala Over 0.5 Points (-108)
The Minnesota Wild are coming off one of their best games of the entire season. That would be a 8-3 win over first place Colorado. Now taking on the St. Blues, we love their chances to pick up another win here. Tonight we will be backing Kevin Fiala to score a point. He is coming off a hat trick in that game against the Avalanche for starters and has vaulted to second on the team with 25 points. Fiala actually has a seven-game point streak going and during that stretch has 10 points. Because of his recent surge in offensive production, we will back him to have at least one point here.

Cale Makar Over 0.5 Assists (-122)
The Colorado Avalanche will be looking to bounce back after losing to Minnesota 8-3 in their most recent game. They have the perfect opportunity to do just that when they take on Anaheim tonight. Here we will be looking to back a top Avalanche defenseman in Cale Makar. He is fourth on the team with 23 assists, which is where we are looking tonight. Makar had two assists in the blowout loss to the Wild and one in the game prior. In the three games Makar has played against the Ducks, he has four assists, so backing him to have another here will be our play.
