Best player prop bets for Tuesday's NHL slate: Scheifele to help lock up third in the North
We’ve got just a two-game slate for Tuesday’s NHL card, but there are still 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.
Brad Marchand Over 1 Point (+104)
This will mark the last game of the regular season, though it will not be the last time these two teams will be facing each other. They will actually be playing their first round of the playoffs against each other, which makes this basically a tune-up game. It is also the second night of a back to back for these Bruins.
Regardless, we are going to be backing one of Boston’s best players. That being Brad Marchand, who leads this team with 69 points. He leads them in assists with 40 and goals with 29, so basically Marchand is doing everything. In seven games against the Capitals this season, Marchand has cashed this prop four times, but also has one push. He has only failed to not score a point against Washington once this season, which is why we are going to back him tonight to at the very least provide one point.

Mark Scheifele Over 1 Point (-144)
Vancouver truly had an awful season, but will look to hinder the playoff seeding for the Jets. Winnipeg currently sits in third place in the North Division, but with one game remaining after tonight, could still drop to fourth place if the Montreal Canadiens are able to pick up points in the coming days.
Because the Canucks have been awful this season, we are instead going to look to a top player for the Jets. That being Mark Scheifele. Now he has 59 points on the season, which leads this Winnipeg team. He has 39 assists, which also leads the team and 20 goals. In eight games against the Jets this season, he has nine total points. In half of the games, he has pushed this prop, and in two games he has cashed this prop. That just leaves two games where he failed to score a point at all. So, given that the Jets still are trying to lock up the best seed they can, we like Scheifele to have at least one point here tonight.
