Best NHL Prop Bets Today March 8

Tonight is another great night for casual sports fans and bettors to make some money through player props. This comes after a huge night in the NHL where almost every team played. There were explosive performances last night and there is the potential for another set of similar performances. Fans and bettors made a lot of money last night and could have the same outcome tonight.

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.

Detroit Red Wings vs. Arizona Coyotes

My Pick – Alex DeBrincat to Account for Over 0.5 Points (-150) at DraftKings

Out of all the games going into this Friday night, the matchup between the Detroit Red Wings and the Arizona Coyotes has a chance to be completely one-sided. The high-scoring offense of the Red Wings is set to take on a potentially fatigued Coyotes defense that is among the worst in the league.

Arizona has given up five goals each in the previous two losses including last night's loss to the Minnesota Wild. Detroit averages 3.48 goals per game, which is sixth in the league, thanks to an incredibly talented roster of scorers.

They are getting tremendous play from several players, including star center Alex DeBrincat. He has accounted for a goal or an assist in six of the last nine games for Detroit. He will have a chance to lead a playoff-hungry Red Wings against a team, that looks to be back to the losing ways that got them 14 consecutive losses four games prior.

Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche

My Pick – Mikko Rantanen to Account for Over 1.5 Points (+160) at DraftKings

The Colorado Avalanche have a chance to continue a solid streak of their elite offensive play going into Friday night. After scoring seven goals in the 7-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings, the Avalanche will host the Minnesota Wild tonight.

The Wild’s defense is less efficient than the Red Wings as Minnesota allows an average of 3.3 two goals per game, 24th in the league. Like the Avalanche, the Wild are coming off a win from last night as they defeated the Arizona Coyotes on the road 5-2.

Last night, defender Cale Makar had his first hat trick in his NHL career with three goals as well as one assist. Center Nathan McKinnon accounted for one goal and three assists. Not to be left out is forward Mikko Rantanen, who accounted for four assists in the huge win.

Out of the three stars, Rantanen is the player who is likely to bring this performance over to the next game. Maker and MacKinnon could take more of a backseat after a huge performance against Detroit and let Rantanen do some damage. He has accounted for 17 points (13 of them being assists) in the 15 games played since the NHL All-Star Break.
