Best NHL Prop Bets Today March 31

New York Rangers vs Buffalo Sabres

Artemi Panarin O 2.5 Shots on Goal +114 (FanDuel)

Our first prop bet of the day takes us to Buffalo, New York. This game should be an interesting one, as both of these teams have high-powered offenses, but only one (the Rangers) has a competent defense. This bet is a little risky and involves the Rangers’ Artemi Panarin. Panarin is having himself another excellent season and will finish this game with at least three shots. Bet on the over.

Panarin comes into this game averaging 2.48 shots per game. That probably does not really sway you either way, so I will add this. The winger has four shots in each of his previous two games and shot five times against the Sabres earlier this season. However, that is not the only reason why you should bet on the over. Another reason is the Sabres have a poor defense and allow 33 shots per game. In their last game, they gave up 41 shots to the rebuilding Montreal Canadiens. Buffalo will probably give up 35+ shots today, so there is no reason Panarin should not finish with three or more shots. Bet on the over.

Our second prop bet of the day will take us to Winnipeg. This bet, unlike the first one, is a safe bet. We will look at the Red Wings’ Moritz Seider for this prop. Seider is only 21 years old and may be a future face of the Red Wings franchise. His numbers do not jump out at you, but they are also not bad. Moritz is not much of a goal-scorer, but he does have 33 assists. However, he will be facing a tough Winnipeg Jets’ defense today. Bet on the under.

Seider has three points in his previous two games but did not have a point in his six games before that. He does not consistently get points, which leads me to believe he will not secure a point today. Seider will have to handle the Jets’ defensemen in this matchup. The Jets have a good group of defensemen and hold opposing teams to 2.81 goals per game. They will limit Seider’s production today and hold him to zero points. Bet on the under.

Calgary Flames vs Vancouver Canucks

Nazem Kadri O 2.5 Shots +105 (BetMGM)

Our final prop bet of the day takes us to Vancouver, British Columbia. This bet is a little risky but one worth taking. We will look at the Flames’ Nazem Kadri for this bet. Kadri is in the back half of his career but is still producing at a solid level. He will finish this game with three shots or more. Bet on the over.

Kadri has 13 shots in his previous three games. He has been seeing the puck differently and taking a lot more shots as a result. He will be battling with a weak Vancouver Canucks team today. The Canucks allow 30.6 shots per game, and the Flames average 35.5 shots per game, so Kadri should be able to finish with at least three shots. The math leads to him hitting the over, so I recommend betting on it.
