We’ve got a six-game slate for Monday’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. We’ve been having a great NHL season so far, let’s keep it going on Monday.

Max Pacioretty Over 4 Shots on Goal (+110)

We are going back to the Vegas Golden Knights tonight, but not to the player you might expect. This time we are going to back a shots on goal prop from Max Pacioretty. He leads Vegas with 95 shots on goal through 21 games. That averages out to roughly 4.5 per game. Pacioretty also ranks fifth in the NHL in this category. He currently has had at least four shots on goal or more in five consecutive game, which includes two games against this same Minnesota team. In fact, in two games against the Wild this season, Pacioretty is averaging seven shots on goal. Because he is one of Vegas’ main offensive threats, we will back him here to keep that streak rolling.

Connor McDavid Over 1.5 Points (-118)

The Edmonton Oilers have one of the most lethal offenses in the the NHL and of course, that is spearheaded by Connor McDavid. He leads the NHL in points with 43 and with 28 assists. He also is second in the league with 15 goals, so really McDaid is doing it all. Here we are going to back him to score multiple points against a terrible Ottawa team. Through four games this season against the Senators, McDavid is averaging 2.00 points per game. Mainly coming through assists, but he has scored once against them. Because he only has one goal against them, this is just going to be a prop bet, and we will look for him to lead this offense to their fifth win against Ottawa this season.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Ottawa Senators vs. Edmonton Oilers.

Tyler Toffoli Over 0.5 Goals (+194)

Montreal has been playing better as of late and it help that they are actually scoring consistently. Tyler Toffoli will be our focus tonight as he looks to extend his three-game goal scoring streak in the month of March. Toffoli now has 15 goals on the season, leading his team and ranking tied for second in the NHL. He has to be pretty good because he is currently tied with no other than Connor McDavid from the Edmonton Oiler. Also, in five games against Vancouver this season, Toffoli has scored an impressive eight goals, so we believe it is worth taking a shot on him scoring here.
