155

Best NHL Player Prop Bets for January 16th

Dylan Cozens Over 0.5 Points -145

Tage Thompson is the only player that has been producing points at a higher rate than Dylan Cozens since Nov. 7th. He’s put up 40 points in 41 games, but betting markets aren’t showing him as much respect as they show the Sabres’ other top players.

Year-to-date, Tuch and Skinner have produced more points, but in terms of efficiency, there isn’t much separating these three players and Cozens is catching up. Not to mention, no player has produced power play points at a higher rate than Cozens, who plays the center position on the top unit, since Jan. 1st.

Monday’s game has a total of 7 and is expected to be high scoring. The Sabres are one of, if not, the best offensive teams in the league, and the Panthers rank among the bottom-10 teams in goals against over the last month. Florida has also taken the most penalties per game since Dec. 1st.

This is a good opportunity to bet on Cozens to register a point in any situation, but bettors should consider his power play production as well.
