Best NHL Prop Bets Today May 02 2024

In terms of quantity with the NHL playoffs, tonight will be a mild night. In terms of quality, however, the one game that will be played tonight will be potentially the game sealer for the series to close out between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs, or the series will go into a pivotal game seven. This whole series has been dominated by the defensive play of both the Bruins and, surprisingly, Toronto. This has caused many bettors to bet the under of some star players for mild rewards. There is, however, one player expected to have a big cash out for his efficient performance tonight. Look for this stellar bet to come from DraftKings Sportsbook.

Below I'm sharing my favorite NHL player prop pick for Thursday, May 2.

Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

My Pick – Max Domi to Account for Over 0.5 Assists (+100) at DraftKings

The defense of the Boston Bruins have been highly efficient and taken away some of the biggest stores for the Toronto Maple Leaves, including center Auston Matthews. The lack of full production from these stars have been difficult for the Maple Leafs, but they haven't been impossible to overcome. 

There have been other players for Toronto who have been able to pick up the slack and take over without the full pressure of the Bruins. Center Max Domi has been the most productive player for the Maple Leafs and could be that same key playmaker again.

In the last five games played, he only accounted for four total points with three being assists. However, he has accounted for an assist to help his teammates score in the key positions in three crucial games. 

If the Bruins' defense continues to lock up on him, he could be that player that Toronto may call upon again.
