After a six-game Sunday card, we are back for seven games on Monday. The action starts at 7:00 p.m. ET. Here we are going to focus on the player props and will be looking for guys to step up for their teams. Make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game, as well.

Brady Tkachuk Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (-106)

Brady Tkachuk may have not cashed his shots on goal prop the other night, but the Senators will be facing the Flames for a third consecutive game and we believe it is worth going right back to him for the same prop on Monday night. Tkachuk still leads the NHL in shots on goal with 98. Over the course of 23 games so far, that averages out to 4.2 shots on goal per game. In two games against Calgary this year, he has nine shots on goal. He did only have three the other night, but with this prop being at a fair price, we think he will surpass this total without much trouble.

Mark Scheifele Over 1 Point (-108)

The Winnipeg Jets are back in action, which means it is time to go back to one of our favorite players. That being Mark Scheifele, who is a workhorse for this Jets’ team and does basically everything for them. He currently leads the team in points with 28. He has 17 assists, also leading the team and 11 goals, which ranks tied for first on the team. Scheifele has gone on a scoring tear as of late with goals in five of his last six games.

That could warrant a longshot goal scoring prop, but tonight we are going to play it safer and just expect points of any kind. Scheifele had at least one point in 11 of the Jets’ 12 games in the month of February, so we expect him to find at least one point here to push and it is likely he finds two points to help cash the over.

Mitchell Marner Over 1 Point (-144)

The Toronto Maple Leafs torched Edmonton the other night, winning 4-0. Auston Matthews did not even play in that game and the Maple Leafs were still able to do what they did. In the rematch on Monday, we are going to look for Mitchell Marner to step up and carry the offense with Matthews still listed as day to day. Marner leads the team with 32 points. He has 22 assists and 10 goals this year. He showed both of those skills this past Saturday, assisting a goal and scoring a goal against Edmonton. With the uncertainty around Matthews, backing Marner to have at least one point (for a push) and two (for a cash) will be our play.
