Best NHL Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks
Arizona Coyotes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Under 5.5 (-106, SugarHouse)
On a night with so many teams, it is not all about the glitz of lighting up the scoreboard. The matchup in Columbus between two of the league’s lowest-scoring teams last year should offer up more of the same tonight. The Jackets and Coyotes both ranked in the bottom third in goals per contest last year, and both were in the bottom five in scoring chances. The Blue Jackets also came in dead last in expected goals by over eight goals.
There will plenty of NHL betting spots with offensive firepower, but neither of these teams would top that list. As teams that struggle to create chances and capitalize due to lack of top-end talent, take advantage of the value at near even odds.
Steven Stamkos to Score a Point (-155, SugarHouse)
Coming off a disappointing showing in the home opener, the Lightning should be fired up against one of the league’s worst teams in Detroit. With a point prop nearly half that of teammate Nikita Kucherov, there is value to be had here with Steven Stamkos at -155. Stamkos had two assists in the team’s first game despite the uninspired effort. With the large gap in speed and depth, the Lightning should hang a crooked number on the hapless Wings, with a projected goal total pushing four based on the moneyline odds. With that disparity in speed as well, they should rack up power-play opportunities for some easy scoring chances for a top power-play unit that hogs the ice.
