Best player prop bets for Wednesday's NHL slate: Tavares looking to contribute

Best player prop bets for Wednesday's NHL slate: Tavares looking to contribute

We’ve got a seven-game slate for Wednesday’s NHL card, but that still 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.

Connor McDavid Over 1.5 Points (+100)

Edmonton destroyed Winnipeg the other night, winning by a score of 6-1. They now sit in second place in the North Division, just one point clear of this Jets team. Just like the other night, we are going to go with Connor McDavid to have a monster game. He actually just had a hat trick in Monday’s game plus one assist to easily cash the prop we backed him on. Now with 81 points on the season, we do not see anything changing in this rematch. McDavid has 12 points in his last four games alone and 19 in eight games against Winnipeg. He is averaging more than two points per game against the Jets and we are going to back him to continue that streak tonight.

John Tavares Over 0.5 Points (-146)

Toronto is rapidly running away with the North Division, now seven points clear of Edmonton. They will be looking to extend that lead here against the Canadiens, who are an average team at best. Normally when backing Toronto in the player prop market, looking to Auston Matthews is the way to go. However, John Tavares has been excellent as of late, so backing him will be our focus tonight. Tavares has 44 points on the season and is third on the team. Looking at recent games, he has eight points in the last five games. Three of these games were multi-point games, but he also has had at least one point in every game during this stretch. In six games against the Canadiens, Tavares has seven points, therefore backing him to have one will be our play.

Max Pacioretty Over 1 Point (+130)

The Vegas Golden Knights are holding a slim lead in the West Division, sitting four points clear of the Colorado Avalanche, their opponent tonight. While we normally would focus on a Mark Stone prop, instead we are going with Max Pacioretty. He is second on the team with 47 points, but leads Vegas with 22 goals. He has five points in his last five games as well, so it seems that he is starting to heat up. Plus, against the Avalanche, Pacioretty has seven points in their five meetings. Because Pacioretty can assist or score, backing him to have a multi-point game will be our play.
