Player Assists, CAL Flames @ TOR Maple Leafs
Player Assists Pick
Mitchell Marner (TOR Maple Leafs) - Over

Reasoning

Toronto will be looking to bounce back here after being shutout by Calgary on Monday night. One of the best for ways for Toronto to do that is to get Mitchell Marner more involved again. He leads the team with 21 assists and 30 points. He has scored nine goals this season, but our focus will be on his assist prop. Mainly because Marner has has at least one assist in 14 of Toronto’s 20 games this season. That means we are likely to at least push on this prop. It does help that he has had at least two assists in six games this season. In three games against the Flames, Marner has a total of three assists. We believe that the Maple Leafs’ offense is going to wake up here, scoring plenty of goals and Marner is sure to be involved in a few of them.

Player Points, NY Rangers @ PHI Flyers
Player Points Pick
James van Riemsdyk (PHI Flyers) - Over

Reasoning

The Philadelphia Flyers are a solid team this season, but have a fantastic opportunity to pick up a win on Wednesday night against the New York Rangers. The Rangers will be without one of their top player, which should impact the amount of pressure Philadelphia is able to provide. Here we will be looking for James van Riemsdyk to pick up a point, something he is used to this season. He has 21 points on the year, leading the Flyers. He also leads the Flyers in both assists (13) and goals (8). In five games in the month of February, due to a ton of games being postponed, Van Riemsdyk has eight points. This includes three points in his most recent game. We believe Philadelphia is going to have plenty of scoring chances, so back Van Riemsdyk to have one point will be our play.

Player Goals, LA Kings @ STL Blues
Player Goals Pick
Dustin Brown (LA Kings) - Over

Reasoning

This is a longshot play based on what we have seen recently. That being Duston Brown of the Los Angeles Kings, who now leads the team in goals scored. He has 10 goals this season, which actually puts him tied for fifth in the NHL. Brown scored two goals the other night against the Blues, giving us reason to believe he can score another here. Brown has now scored six goals in his last six games and seven in the month of February. St. Louis did not do a great job of containing him the other night and we believe the same is going to happen here. As a result, we will back Brown to score as a longshot.

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.
