Best player prop bets for Sunday's NHL slate: Marchessault helps to even the series
We’ve got a two-game slate for Sunday’s NHL card, but there are still plenty of opportunities to find 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.
Blake Wheeler Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-122)
The Winnipeg Jets may have lost both games so far in this series, but we are going to back one of their top guys here. We have used this play a few times recently and that would be Blake Wheeler to have over 2.5 shots on goal. He just had three in Game 2. The oddsmakers continue to keep this line at 2.5 and Wheeler continues to go over this line with ease. Wheeler has now cashed this prop in all six games he has played in this postseason, so getting another reasonable price, we like this prop here. Especially considering the fact that Winnipeg will be in desperation mode and will be trying to get as many shots on goal as they can.

Jonathan Marchessault Over 0.5 Points (-108)
Vegas got back into the series with a win in Game 3 and we like them to even things up tonight. The player we will focus on here will be Jonathan Marchessault. He has been consistent if nothing else, averaging one point per game in this series. Even in the Game 1 blowout, Marchessault was heavily involved and recorded an assist. He recorded an assist in each of the first two games and scored a goal in that important Game 3. Because he has shown the ability to assist or score himself, we like him to record a point here tonight as well.
