NHL Prop Bets March 9

Dallas Stars vs Buffalo Sabres

Dylan Cozens O 2.5 Goals -108 (FanDuel)

Our first prop bet of the day involves the Buffalo Sabres’ Dylan Cozens. Cozens is having a solid season but has gone under the radar because he plays behind Tage Thompson, Jeff Skinner, and Alex Tuch. However, I would still encourage fans to give him a look. Cozen is a reliable goal-scorer and not shy when it comes to shooting the puck. He will have three or more shots today. Bet on the over.

Cozens is averaging 2.63 goals per game. That number is barely above 2.5, so it does not help too much in swaying your bet. However, Cozens is averaging five shots a game over his previous three games. He has been feeling more confident about shooting the puck, resulting in two goals. 

Cozens also shoots a little bit more at home. He averages 2.84 shots per game at the American Airlines center. If you combine his recent shot spree with his home average, it is easy to see why you should bet on the over.

New York Islanders vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Tristan Jarry O 27.5 Saves -106 (FanDuel)

Our second prop of the day is a goalie prop. It involves the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Tristan Jarry. Jarry has struggled a bit over his last few starts but is still a solid and reliable netminder. He will finish with at least 28 saves today. Bet on the over.

If you look at Jarry’s recent performance, you would bet on the under. The 27-year-old has not had 28 or more saves in his previous five starts. However, the Penguins will be facing a shot-heavy New York Islanders team today. The Islanders average 30.7 shots per game but are coming off a 39-shot game against the Buffalo Sabres. They also had 36 shots in their game before that against the Detroit Red Wings. 

You may be reading that last paragraph and still not be convinced. If that is the case, I will add this. The Penguins do not have great defensemen and allow 33.8 shots per game. They will probably allow 33-35 shots in this matchup, which will give Jarry plenty of opportunities to grab 28+ saves. Bet on the over.

Ottawa Senators vs Seattle Kraken

Vince Dunn O 0.5 Assists +108 (FanDuel)

Our final prop bet of the day takes us to the Pacific Northwest and involves the Kraken’s Vince Dunn. Dunn leads the Kraken in assists and will get another today. Bet on the over.

Vince Dunn is having a solid season and has become a talented passer. He only had 28 assists in 73 games last year, but he already has 38 assists in 64 games this year.  More importantly, Dunn has six assists in his previous five games. He has not gone without one since February 26. However, that is not the only reason why I would recommend betting on the over. The 26-year-old also faced the Senators once this season and finished with an assist in that game too. 

Dunn is on a roll and has had previous success against the Senators. Bet on the over.
