Best player prop bets for Tuesday's NHL slate: Pavelski to put pucks on net
We’ve got a nine-game slate for Tuesday’s NHL card, and that means there are plenty of 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. We’ve been having a great NHL season so far, let’s keep it going on Tuesday.
Aleksander Barkov Over 3 shots on goal (+100)
The Florida Panthers are actually starting to look like one of the better teams in the NHL, winning 15 of their first 24 games and sitting in third place in the Central Division. The Panthers have a number of players who contribute at a high level and it is hard to back one over the other, so instead we will be backing a shots on goal prop.
The player in focus happens to be the guy who leads this team in shots. That being Aleksander Barkov. He has 85 shots on goal this season, averaging out to about 3.5 shots on goal per game. Barkov has 19 games this season where he had at least three shots on goal and 11 where he had more than three shots on goal. Also, in two games against Columbus, Barkov has an average of 5.5 shots on goal, therefore we will be backing the over.

Victor Hedman Over 1 point (-112)
Joe Pavelski Over 2 shots on goal (-138)
The Dallas Stars will look to get back into the win column here as they have just one win so far in the month of March. Their offense is starting to become a little inconsistent, so instead of backing a goal prop, point prop or an assist prop, we will just be looking for shots on goal. The player in focus tonight will be Joe Pavelski. He has 52 shots on goal this season, averaging 2.6 per game. Pavelski is coming off a game where he had 10 shots on goal, so we believe there is a good chance he will have at least two shots on goal here. Pavelski also had two shots on goal in both meetings with Chicago so far, so at the very least, we expect him to push this prop. Regardless, we will back the over here.
