Our first prop bet of the day takes us to St. Paul, Minnesota, for a matchup between the Golden Knights and the Wild. This will be an exciting game, as these are two of the top three teams in the Western Conference. This prop will involve the Wild’s Ryan Hartman. Hartman is not a star, but he does produce points at a consistent clip. With that being said, his scoring has taken a significant dip this season. Hartman will finish with two shots or less. Bet on the under.

Hartman comes into this game averaging exactly 2.5 shots per game. That will probably not sway you either way, but I have some information that will. Hartman failed to put a shot on net in his previous game, and his previous game was against the Golden Knights. He also faced the Golden Knights in February and failed to put a shot on net then as well. For whatever reason, the Golden Knights’ defensemen stifle him and make him a non-factor.

In case my first argument was not enough, I will add this. Hartman’s shooting production decreases a little bit at home. If you combine his lack of shooting against the Golden Knights with his decreased shooting at home, it is easy to see why Hartman will not put up three or more shots. Bet on the under.

We will travel to Dallas, Texas, for our second prop bet of the day (we may return here later). This should be a thrilling game, as the Predators are fighting for a Playoff spot, and the Stars are attempting to finish their season atop the division. We will look at the Stars’ veteran center Jamie Benn for this prop. Benn is 33 years old and may be a little past his prime, but his numbers would not indicate that. The British Columbia native is no Jason Robertson but plays a great second fiddle to him. Benn will finish with at least one point today. Bet on the over.

Benn comes into this game with 72 points (32 goals, 40 assists) in 76 games. His production at home has been quite high lately. Benn has seven points in his previous five games in Dallas and sees the puck a little better at home. His production is also high on the road, but it is a touch higher at home.

It is also worth noting that Benn finished with one goal and one assist in his last game against the Nashville Predators. The Predators have a strong defense, but Benn knows how to cause problems. Bet on the over.

Arizona Coyotes vs Seattle Kraken

Our fourth prop bet will be the riskiest one of the day. We will go to Seattle for this prop and look at the Kraken’s Jordan Eberle. Eberle is having another solid season for the Kraken and will have at least three shots today. Bet on the over.

Eberle averages 2.2 shots per game this season. However, he has shot ten times in his previous three games. More importantly, he is facing an inferior Arizona Coyotes squad. The Coyotes have one of the worst defenses in the NHL and give up 35.3 shots per game. Arizona simply lacks quality defensemen, which results in them giving up a lot of goals and a lot of shots. Today will be different. The Coyotes will allow 33-37 shots, and three or more of those will belong to Jordan Eberle. Bet on the over.

Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild

Jonathan Marchessault O 0.5 Points -105 (BetMGM)

There are only three games on slate today, so we will return to St. Paul, Minnesota, for the second time for this prop bet. Our first bet involved the Wild’s Ryan Hartman, but this one will involve the Golden Knights’ Jonathan Marchessault. Marchessault is one of the best players on the Golden Knights and a reliable center in this league. The 32-year-old had 66 points in 76 games last season and has 54 points in 70 games this year. His production has been solid and efficient, and I do not expect it to slow down today. Marchessault will secure at least one point today. Bet on the over.

Marchessault has gone without a point in his previous two games. I do not say that to concern you. The center rarely goes more than two games without a point and almost always finds a way to get at least an assist in his third game. 

Marchessault may have not gotten a point in his previous game against the Golden Knights (on Saturday), but he had two assists when he faced the Wild in February. The veteran knows hows to get points against the Wild and will do so in this game. Bet on the over.

Nashville Predators vs Dallas Stars

Jason Robertson O 0.5 Assists -125 (DraftKings)

We are on to our final prop bet of the day. This prop will involve the Stars’ Jason Robertson. Robertson is tearing up the NHL this season. He is an excellent scorer but also knows when to make the right pass. He leads the Stars with 55 assists but will get assist #56 today. Bet on the over.

Robertson is coming off a two-assist game in his previous matchup and a three-assist game in his matchup before that. As I mentioned above, he is a great passer, but five assists in two games are out of the ordinary. However, that does mean he has momentum heading in this game. That momentum will push him far and get him an assist.

In addition, Robertson has four assists in three games against the Predators this season. The 23-year-old knows how to set up his teammates when playing Nashville. Bet on the over.
