NHL Prop Bets
Welcome to the home of our NHL Prop Bets. Prop betting is an increasingly popular and fun way to have a wager on a game, and a type of wager where you aren’t necessarily betting on the outcome of the match itself. With many different NHL prop bets available for each game, our expert handicappers go through all of today’s NHL game to highlight the key matchups, angles, and the best NHL prop bets.
This Columbus-Toronto series has been absolutely wild and it ends appropriately with a decisive Game 5 on Sunday night. Blue Jackets center Pierre-Luc Dubois has been outstanding of late, so it is no fault of his that his team squandered a huge lead on Friday with a chance to clinch the series. It was a taste of their own medicine for the Jackets, who had recovered from a similar deficit to steal Game 3 thanks to a hat-trick by Dubois–including the winner in overtime. In Game 4 he recorded an assist and finished with a positive plus/minus rating despite the loss. Expect the 22-year-old Canadian to find the box score yet again in what should be an entertaining Game 5.

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 is 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.
