Best player prop bets for Tuesday's NHL slate: Marchessault to give Vegas series lead
We’ve got a two-game slate for Tuesday’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.
Nikita Kucherov over 1 point (-114)
The Tampa Bay Lightning are 3-1 up in their NHL Playoffs series against the Carolina Hurricanes and will look to punch their ticket to the Conference Finals tonight. Nikita Kicherov has been a beast in this series and that is who we will focus on tonight. He has six points in this series through just four games, recording at least one point in three of them. This includes multi-point games in Game 3 and Game 4. He has now cashed this prop in two of the games and pushed in another. Given his expertise and given that the Lightning are going for a series win, we believe Kucherov will contribute at least one point.

Jonathan Marchessault over 0.5 points (+104)
It is hard to believe how badly Vegas played in Game 1 of this series, but it was somewhat expected given that they had just finished a seven-game series with Minnesota. Fast forward to Game 5 and the series is tied at 2-2 and Vegas is looking the dominant team. The Golden Knights crushed the Avalanche in Game 4 and we like their chance to take the series lead, even on the road. In terms of a player to watch for Vegas, we are going to focus on Jonathan Marchessault. He is coming off a hat-trick in Game 4 and now has six points in the series. He has had least one point in every game against Colorado and we believe he can record another tonight.
