Another big slate is set for Tuesday night as we have eight-games to look forward too. Originally, a nine-game card, the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning game has been canceled. Here we are going to focus on the player props and will be looking for guys to step up for their teams. Make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game as well.

Let’s take a look at three of the best prop bets for Tuesday’s slate of games.

Jonathan Huberdeau Over 1 Point (+108)

The Florida Panthers kicked off their season this past Sunday with a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. They will be playing them again here and will look for a similar result. One guy in particular, Jonathan Huberdeau, provided an insane amount of production in the Sunday game and we will look to go back to him here. Huberdeau was able to score a goal in this game and also provided two assists. He led his team in points with a total of three, so at this price, I think he will be able to have as much or more success. Getting this prop at 1.0 opposed to 1.5 is crucial because it means all he needs is one assist or goal to at the very least push. At plus money, this prop looks good.

Jack Eichel Over 0.5 Assists (-118)

Buffalo started the season looking rough. They lost their first game 6-4 and their second game 2-1. They went into Monday’s game with Philadelphia as sizable underdogs and crushed the Flyers 6-1. Now they will look to win back to back games against a good Flyers team. Regardless of Buffalo’s record, there is one constant and that is Jack Eichel. He has a total of six points this season and all of them have been assists. In that game on Monday, Eichel had three assists by himself. Eichel has shown no real ability to score so far, therefore I will be backing the assists prop. The price is still fair and he will only need one assist to cash this prop. As long as the Sabres perform offensively like they did Monday, I like this prop to end up cashing.

Andre Burakovsky Over 0.5 Points (-114)

It was a tale of two different Colorado teams to start this season. They opened with a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. The Avalanche had very little production in this game as shown by only scoring once. Their second game against the Blues was a completely different story, as they won 8-0. A total of 10 guys earned at least a point in this game and eight guys had at least two points. One of the multiple point guys includes Andre Burakovsky. He had one goal and one assist in the blowout win.

The other constant with Burakovsky was that he was one of the lone contributors in their season opening loss. He had the lone goal in that particular game. Now going up against a winless Los Angeles Kings team, I think Burakovsky is going to find a way to contribute. Because he can score or assist, backing his point prop to go over would be my play here.
