Best player prop bets for Thursday's NHL slate: Krug to help down the Wild

Best player prop bets for Thursday's NHL slate: Krug to help down the Wild

We’ve got a three-game slate for Thursday’s NHL card, but there still plenty of opportunities to find some 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.

Torey Krug Over 0.5 Points (+100)

The Minnesota will be looking to bounce back against the St. Louis Blues after getting shutout on Wednesday night. With the loss, the Wild can no longer pass Colorado for second place in the West Division. On the other side, the Blues are just looking to finish the season strong. Here we are going to look to back Torey Krug from the Blues. He has 31 points this season, 29 assists and just two goals. He has played well against the Wild, scoring seven points in their six head to head games. That includes two points in the game last night against this same Wild team. Because he has performed well against Minnesota, we are going to back Krug to score at least one point in the final game of the regular season.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Minnesota Wild vs. St. Louis Blues.

Johnny Gaudreau Over 1 Point (+138)

The two worst teams in the North Division will face off here in a game that means nothing. They actually will play each other several days in a row, so both sides will be fighting to not finish last in the division. Tonight we are going to back a top Calgary player to have a big game. That being Johnny Gaudreau to have at least one point. He is second on the team with 42 points, but leads his team with 19 goals. Add in 23 assists and we believe he can provide some offense tonight. In six games against the Canucks, Gaudreau has five points, so backing him will be our play.

Mikko Rantanen Over 1.5 Points (+138)

The Colorado Avalanche absolutely crushed the Los Angeles Kings last night, beating them 6-0. They will looking to do the same tonight as they hope to pass Vegas for the top seed in the West Division. Last night we went with Mikko Rantanen to have over one point and he ended the game with three points. We are actually going to just go back to him here to have at least two points again. Rantanten is still second on the team with 64 points now and 34 assists. He has 11 points in seven games against the Kings this season. Colorado know they need to win to have a chance at that top seed in the West, so backing one of the best players on this team will be our play.
