We’ve got a four-game slate for Sunday’s NHL card, and that means there are a few 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.

Aleksander Barkov Over 3 Shots on Goal (+102)

We have gone to Aleksander Barkov several times before, but usually it involved him grabbing some points or an assist. However, the Panthers’ offense has not been scoring as many goals over their past couple of games, so instead we are going to look to a shots on goal prop. Barkov has 110 shots on goal this season, which leads the team by a decent margin. He is averaging 3.67 shots on goal per game. Over his last five games, Barkov has cashed this prop four times and pushed the other. He is also averaging 4.6 shots on goal during this stretch and has had four straight games with at least five shots on goal. For that reason, we like his over to be the play.

Mark Stone Over 0.5 Assists (+100)

Going back to Mark Stone once again because the oddsmakers continue to give us favorable odds. He had yet another assist in Vegas’ most recent game, bringing him to 25 on the season. He clearly has the most assists on the team and now has assists in three straight games. In three games against the Kings this season, Stone has an assist in each game. So, at even money, we like him to continue his assist streak and to help the Golden Knights win the sixth game in a row.

John Klingberg Over 2 Shots on Goal (-114)

Neither team in this game is good. However, there is still reason to back a player from this game tonight. Here we are going to go with John Klingberg from the Dallas Stars. He is only fourth on Dallas with 58 shots on goal, but his recent performances would suggest he could still cash this prop tonight. He has had five shots on goal in consecutive games as well. We do not expect there to be many goals, but will still back this shots on goal prop.
