Season Record: 41-32, +10.01 (Bonus not included in record)

I still like my bonus bets even though I don’t include them in the official record. The reason I list three official picks is because I don’t want to confuse anyone with too many picks. I also feel strong about my bonus picks but they are longer shots. If you’re looking for more be sure to check out our Pick Tracker

The Best NHL Prop Bets

Nikolaj Ehlers Over 3.5 SOG

(+102, FanDuel Sportsbook)

This is about Ehlers and the Jets as much as it’s about the Nashville Predators. Let’s start with the Jets, because there’s a lot of value when it comes to their offense. Ehlers’ return has given the Jets two very strong scoring lines to attack in the betting market. Ehlers has four goals and 14 points in 10 games, and he’s hit the score sheet in eight of those 10 games since he’s been back. He has at least four shots on goal in three straight games and he’s up against a Nashville team that ranks second in shots and attempts at 5v5/60 since December 1st, according to Natural Stat Trick. Ehlers, Kyle Connor and Pierre-Luc Dubois are in play for the over on their shot props. The Ehlers, Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler line has been very strong of late, so I included a couple of assist props that worked out well for us over the weekend. 


David Krejci Point 

(-120, DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Boston Bruins enter as -430 road favorites, according to PointsBet. Vegas is expecting Boston to win this matchup pretty easily against the Montreal Canadiens and I don’t blame them. Montreal has allowed the most goals in the Eastern Conference (171) and the Bruins are the only team yet to allow 100 goals (96). They’ve only lost five regulation games out of 46. Think about that for a minute! Wild stuff. Montreal also ranks first in penalties taken. Krejci has six points in his past four games and nine in his last seven games. Eight of those nine points have been assists, so consider +160 for an apple. Krejci has 37 points in 41 games this season and he could pick up a couple more playing alongside David Pastrnak.


Kevin Hayes Over 2.5 SOG

(-123, BetRivers)

I try to avoid players I suggested the previous week because I’d like to give some other options, but I can’t ignore Hayes right now. He has at least three shots on goal in eight of his past nine games, and at least four shots in five of those games, including nine against Chicago (last Tuesday, which we hit), and six against the Ducks. That’s 21 shots on goal in his last three games. He also has five goals in his last four so he’s coming in hot.
