Best player prop bets for Sunday's NHL playoff: Theodore looks to even the series
We have only a one-game slate for Sunday’s NHL playoff action, so we will be looking to find one player for each team who represents some value. Right now, we’re going to be focusing on NHL 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.
Shea Theodore Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-144)
The Vegas Golden Knights now find themselves behind in the series 2-1 after losing Game 3 on the road 3-2. They will look to bounce back tonight with a big offensive performance since their offense has been a little lacking throughout this series. For tonight’s game, we are going to back Shea Theodore to just have some shots on goal. He has had at least three shots on goal in every game, and four in the last two games. He is averaging 3.66 shots in this series and exactly three shots throughout the postseason so far. Given the fact that the Golden Knights need a fast start, backing Theodore to go over his shots on goal prop will be our play tonight.
Nicholas Suzuki Over 2 Shots on Goal (+106)
The Montreal Canadiens can really put the pressure on tonight if they can defend their home ice for the second game in a row. Winning Game 3 was a little bit of a lucky break, seeing that the Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made a huge mistake–but the Canadiens capitalized and therefore are in a good spot.
One player in particular that has been a huge help for Montreal is Nicholas Suzuki. He has contributed nine points throughout the postseason, however we will be looking at his shots on goal prop tonight. Suzuki is averaging 3.33 shots on goal per game in the series and has cashed this prop in two of the three games. He also has one push, so he has not had less than two shots on goal against Vegas. He is also averaging 2.2 shots on goal in the postseason as a whole, so backing him to have at least two shots on goal will be our play.
