Alex DeBrincat Over 0.5 goals (+125)

Alex DeBrincat is currently on a two-game goal-scoring streak. He has scored 36 goals on the season and has recorded a goal in seven of his last 11 games. He’s a natural goal-scorer and is one of the most consistent threats for the Chicago Blackhawks. Tonight, DeBrincat and the Hawks will be playing Vegas, which can’t seem to stop anything as of late. They’re allowing more than three goals per game and have a combined save percentage that’s under .900 over their last 10 games. The Golden Knights have won just three games in that stretch. DeBrincat should be able to capitalize against the Knights; they are injury riddled and have shown minimal effort over the last stretch of games. Take DeBrincat to extend his goal-scoring streak to three games.

Connor McDavid Over 0.5 goals (+140)

Tonight will feature the Battle of Alberta in this matchup between the Edmonton Oilers vs Calgary Flames. This game could have a big implication for the Pacific Division standings, a big two-point swing is on the line. Connor McDavid loves playing this rival. In 33 career games against the Flames, McDavid has 45 points — including 26 goals. That’s his most goals against one opponent. With Dan Vladar expected to start in the net for the Flames and with this being a tail end of a back-to-back for Calgary, expect McDavid to have a night. He is already faster than everyone on the planet, and now he is playing against a fatigued team that he historically has dominated. McDavid is leading the league with 95 points in 64 games. Expect him to improve on that tonight by finding the back of the net.
