Best NHL Prop Bets Today February 28

Tonight’s two games in the NHL might not be games that have traditional sports betting value in terms of moneyline or under/over, but there are going to be great potential bets tonight. Two favorites and potential Stanley Cup contenders will attempt to get revenge on two teams they’ve previously lost to earlier in the season. These favorites will turn to their star players to start the pace rolling. These players will attempt to show out and give great performances. The better the performance, the more fans and bettors have a chance to win more with player props.

Here are our favorite NHL player prop picks for Wednesday.

The following odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook, where NHL Prop Bets can be made. Check out the best NHL bonuses and promo codes for more betting opportunities.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. New York Rangers

My Pick – Artemi Panarin to Account for Over 1.5 Points (+114) at DraftKings

The Columbus Blue Jackets have had the number of the New York Rangers this season. The Blue Jackets have won two of the three meetings this season, with the final matchup set to take place tonight. New York’s last game was a 4-2 road loss to Columbus this past Sunday to end a 10-game winning streak.

The Rangers are going to be looking for revenge in this game against a Blue Jackets team that is among the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets are ranked as the second-worst scoring defense in the league, as they allow an average of 3.67 goals per game.

This game should be a great opportunity for star forward Artemi Panarin to account for a huge comeback performance. He has accounted for four total points in the three games versus the Blue Jackets this season. In the 10 games since the NHL All-Star Break, Panarin has accounted for 13 total points, with 10 of them being assists. He also accounted for two or more points in three of the last six games for the Rangers.

St. Louis Blues vs. Edmonton Oilers

My Pick – Connor McDavid to Account for Over 1.5 Points (-125) at DraftKings

The biggest matchup of the night will be set as the St. Louis Blues go on the road to take on the Edmonton Oilers. This game might also have the most mismatched game line considering the rest that the Oilers got versus the back-to-back that the Blues are playing in.

The Blues are coming off a 4-2 road loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. Having to play another top-tier team is going to be tough for the Blues, who might be fatigued going into tonight.

The last time these two teams faced each other, the Blues took a 6-3 home victory over the Oilers. They are going to be looking to fuel off the 4-2 home win over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday to potentially get revenge on the Blues.

Oilers star center Connor McDavid accounted for three assists in the loss to the Blues. He will be the player that Edmonton will turn to again to get their offense rolling at the right time with a Blues’ defense that gave up four goals the night before.
