There are two games played tonight in the NHL, but they are games that possess great value in the race for the playoffs and in the sports betting industry. These are games that have even greater value through player props.
Here are our favorite NHL player prop picks for Thursday.
The Dallas Stars and the Nashville Predators will meet for the third time this season this Friday night in this Central Divisional rivalry. The Stars are looking to take the series by winning the second of the third game over Nashville.
Stars forward Jason Robertson has been the most consistent player in the previous two matchups versus the Predators. In the last game on January 6, Robertson accounted for a goal and an assist. He has accounted for three total points in the two games against Nashville this season.
The Stars have risen in productivity this season offensively as they average 3.68 goals per game, second in the league. They should be a seriously heavy favorite going against a Predators defense that has allowed 3.17 goals per game, 19th in the league. Look for Robertson to continue his stellar play on the ice as he has been throughout the season.
The other game of the night will feature an Eastern Conference versus Western Conference matchup as the Philadelphia Flyers go on the road to take on the Minnesota Wild. Philadelphia will have a huge advantage on the defensive side of the ice, which will help them offensively.
Over the course of the past few games, Flyers for Joel Farabee has been a rising contributor to the team. Farabee has accounted for a goal or an assist in four of the six games played. He has taken the pressure off forward Travis Konecny, center Sean Couturier, and defender Travis Sanheim.
The Wild are among one of the worst defenses in the league, allowing an average of 3.3 (22nd in the league). This game should be a great opportunity for Farabee to continue his rise to the most impactful player on a serious Eastern Conference Finals contender.
