Today's Best NHL Prop Bet Picks & Predictions, Monday 11/6: Pavel Zacha continues to stay hot
It’s another day that ends in “Y”, which means you already know we’ve got you covered with our favorite NHL player prop picks for today. Although the sample size is limited, I’m still undefeated this season in prop picks (4-0) after cashing in on both of my selections in last week’s NHL props article.
With that being said, I’m back with some more best bets pertaining to NHL player props for today. Don’t forget that you can also check out our NHL predictions for insights to each and every matchup on the slate.
Pavel Zacha (BOS) over 0.5 points (-135)
The first player prop I like for today sides with a familiar face: Pavel Zacha of the Boston Bruins. He was one of our picks last week too where he came through, so if it’s not broken, why fix it? Zacha has been red-hot since the end of last month, and he’s now posted at least one point in six straight contests. For a Bruins team that has somewhat struggled on offense up to this point, they’ll need Zacha to keep up the strong play.
The price for this line is actually not quite as expensive as one might have thought, mainly because Boston’s opponent tonight, Dallas, has been one of the better defensive teams in the league. Still, they’re allowing 33.9 shots per game (27th in NHL), which could wind up leaving some chances for the Bruins. Zacha has also bested 20+ minutes on the ice in 3 consecutive games, so look for him to take advantage of his TOI tonight and finish with over 0.5 points.

Filip Hronek (VAN) over 0.5 points (+100)
Elsewhere on today’s slate is the Edmonton Oilers vs Vancouver Canucks. Edmonton has been one of the NHL’s worst teams this season, specifically on the defensive side of things (4.1 goals allowed per game, 30th in NHL). This is great news for the Canucks and Filip Hronek, who, like Zacha, is also playing out of his mind. His 11 assists are tied for 6th in the league, and he’s recorded at least one point in all but 3 games so far this season.
For how good the Canucks have been on offense, their defense has been a tad more susceptible. We could see north of 7 goals scored in this matchup, and if that’s the case, it’s hard to imagine Hronek not being involved in at least 1 of them. He also currently ranks 21st in all the NHL in TOI per game at 24:07, so the opportunities should be there for him. Snag Hronek to record over 0.5 points for the 7th consecutive game tonight.
