NHL Best Bets

Our NHL best bet hot streak continued last night as we went a perfect 3-0 on our bets for Game Four of the New York Rangers and Florida Panthers series. 

What an electric four games it has been in the Eastern Conference Final. Tonight, we pivot back to the West where the Edmonton Oilers look to redeem themselves after letting Game Three slip away on home ice against the Dallas Stars. This game is a little tough to read when it comes to picking a side because I feel that Edmonton is a bit unreliable, but there are some player props that I am looking to ride.


Let’s get into it.

Dallas at Edmonton (-135, 6)

For the Dallas Stars, Jason Robertson had been relatively quiet in the first two games of the series, especially without Roope Hintz in the lineup. Hintz makes Dallas a much more dangerous team and also allows more open space for a guy like Robertson. It was no coincidence that Robertson had a hat trick and four shots on goal in the game where Hintz came back into the lineup. Tonight, Robertson’s confidence should carry over from Game Three, as he was vocal about it during his postgame interview. 

Another guy for the Stars who had a very strong game and has been thriving in these playoffs is Wyatt Johnston. Johnston has a goal and two assists in this series and has been flying all over the ice. He was incredibly noticeable in Game Three with his three shots on goal and huge contribution in the second period. With Hintz back in the lineup, it moves Johnston down to what is technically the Stars’ third line, so he will most likely face a weaker matchup for the opposition. That will allow him to have more time and space. I anticipate Johnston to fire a ton of pucks on net tonight. 

Now taking a look at the home team, Evander Kane has yet to make his mark on this series when it comes to finding the score sheet. Kane has been held pointless in the first three games of this series after having seven points in the first 12 games of the postseason. Kane is aware of this and is doing whatever he can to get going. He’s been physical, and he’s been putting pucks toward Jake Oettinger. Kane has 11 shots on goal through the first three games of this series, and I expect him to fire even more on net tonight, as the Oilers should have a ton of desperation. 

Like I said before, this particular game is tough to read, but I know that these three individuals will show up and do what they can for their respective teams. 

NHL Best Bet(s): Jason Robertson over 2.5 shots on goal +120 (play to +105) | Wyatt Johnston over 2.5 shots on goal -130 (play to -145) | Evander Kane over 2.5 shots on goal -115 (play to -125)
