Player Shots, NAS Predators @ CLB Blue Jackets
Player Shots Pick
Roman Josi (NAS Predators) - Over


Coming into this game, the Nashville Predators still hold a small lead over the Dallas Stars for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. They will look to extend the lead even further with a second consecutive win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. It is true that we do not often look to back Nashville players, however we have one tonight that has fare well against this Columbus team. That player being Roman Josi. Now he leads his team in points with 33, but here we are looking at a shots on goal prop. Josi has 133 shots on goal this season, which averages out to 2.89 shots on goal per game. In five games with the Blue Jackets, Josi has averaged 3.2 shots on goal per game and has cashed this prop five times. Given he just had five shots on goal in their most recent meeting, we like him to have a similar game here and will back the over.

Player Shots, WAS Capitals @ NY Rangers
Player Shots Pick
Mika Zibanejad (NY Rangers) - Over


Having gone to this prop several times recently, we believe there is reason to keep coming back. Now with the Rangers being eliminated, most would think they will not care about their remaining games. However, they are playing Washington, a team they have blood with so to speak. The Rangers are going to be upset that Capitals player, Tom Wilson was not suspended for the fight in the last game between these two teams and we believe that will allow a player like Mika Zibanejad to show up. Zibanejad has 161 shots on goal this season, which is what we are looking for tonight. He averages 3.03 shots on goal per game overall and 3.0 against the Capitals. For that reason, we will back the over.

Player Shots, MON Canadiens @ OTT Senators
Player Shots Pick
Jeff Petry (MON Canadiens) - Over


The Montreal Canadiens have already clinched their playoff spot, but will be playing for seeding down the stretch. Here they take on an Ottawa team that has been out of the playoff picture for quite some time. Tonight our player in focus is going to be Jeff Petry. He is second on the team in shots on goal, posting 123 on the season. That averages out to 2.41 shots on goal per game. Not only that, but he has been more than productive against Ottawa this season. In nine games against the Senators, Petry is averaging 3.77 shots on goal per game and has cashed this prop in seven of the game. He actually has not failed to have less then two shots on goal per game against Ottawa, which is why we like his over here.

What Are Our Best NHL Prop Bets

Our NHL prop bets will vary from game to game with the very nature of prop betting being driven by the matchups, each game is different. The main types of prop bets in NHL games today will be NHL player prop bets and NHL team prop bets.

Our expert NHL handicappers will analyze all of the statistics, team news, trends, travel, injuries, and more to grasp the best idea of who has the edge in a particular matchup.

In doing this, we look at each player’s matchup, and how their playstyle individually and as part of the team will line up against their opposition, allowing us to draw conclusions about favorable matchups in NHL games.

We then compare the best odds available for the NHL prop bets our research may have highlighted and determine if the odds and the opportunity combine for a good wagering opportunity. You’ll be hard-pressed to find more considered and informed NHL prop bets here at Pickswise. 

What NHL Player Props Can I Wager On?

NHL player props, unlike their major US sporting counterparts in MLB props, NFL props, and NBA props, are tough to find with the majority of online sportsbooks offering little to no markets for these.

NHL player prop bets are unsurprisingly centered around the statistical performance of a player in a match. These markets will revolve around a player’s points, goals, and assists or it can be a combination of all three.

The most common NHL player props include a player to Score a Goal, or you will often see either a player vs player market or an over/under line set for a particular stat, or group of stats.

The simplest NHL prop bet is a player to score a goal where you may be offered odds on just the yes scenario, while some will offer both a yes or no.

You can also place an over/under wager on a player in a particular statistical category such as Over or under 1.5 assists.

The other type of NHL player prop bet you can see is a player vs player line. Here you’re betting for a player to have the Most Pts Scored, Goals & Assists combined in a match bet.

NHL player prop betting is not as popular as some other major sports, and as such odds are offered by far fewer sportsbooks. Sportsbooks such as FanDuel, DraftKings, and 888sport are the most common places to find an NHL player prop bet market, but even they can be sporadic.

What NHL Team Props Can I Wager On?

NHL team props are centered around a team’s performance or particular events to take place during a match. NHL team props are more widely available than NHL player props, typically offering a wider selection of markets too.

Popular examples of an NHL team prop bet include Double Chance where you can bet for a team to win or tie, Team to score first, Team Goals Scored (over/under), or who will Record the most Points.

These are just a few examples of NHL team props you can wager on, with a wide selection it allows you to wager on a game from a different approach, one in which research and analysis are hugely important.

Research is vital in NHL team prop bets with goaltenders and lineups often interchangeable, yet key components in finding a good spot to place a team prop bet wager. Our experts spend hours analyzing the matchups and conditions, alongside a comparison of sportsbooks odds to find the best opportunity and value NHL prop bets.

NHL Grand Salami Prop Bets

The Grand Salami prop bets are a type of prop betting market also seen in the MLB where you are waging over/under on the number of goals scored each night across all of the NHL action.

Like regular over/under markets a line will be set, for example, 24.5 goals with odds of say +120 for Over the total or -100 for the total number of goals scored to be under the line.

You can find all of our NHL team props and other NHL prop bets right here on the NHL prop bets page throughout the entire season, right through until the Stanley Cup Finals.
