Best NHL Player Prop Bets Tonight - Thursday, April 20th
Tampa Bay Lighting vs Toronto Maple Leafs Player Prop Bets
The Tampa Bay Lightning had their way with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night as they opened up the series with a 7-3 win and let the Maple Leafs know that they’re picking up right where they left off last season when they came back 3-2 in the series to send Toronto packing. Wingman Nikita Kucherov had a goal and two assists on four shots on goal on Tuesday night as he set the tone for this Lightning team. Kucherov over 2.5 shots on goal was a gift on Tuesday night and we’ll be attacking his prop on shots on goals again on Thursday night.
The Pick: Nikita Kucherov over 3.5 shots on goal (+115)
We’re sticking with the Tampa Bay Lightning for our second prop of the night as they’re going to establish their dominance again on Thursday night in Toronto. Center Brayden Point had four shots on goal on Tuesday night and turned two of them into goals. He’s had four or more shots on goal in his last three games including five shots on goal and seven shots on goal in their last two regular season games. This Lightning offense is explosive as they’re loaded with talent, but Point exceeds his prop on Thursday night.
The Pick: Brayden Point over 2.5 shots on goal (-134)
Seattle Kraken vs Colorado Avalanche Player Prop Bets
The Seattle Kraken showed their defensive presence on Tuesday night winning 3-1 and never trailed Colorado as they took a 1-0 series lead. The Avalanche are in a must-win position at home on Thursday night as they do not want to go down 0-2 and travel to Seattle. Look for Center Nathan MacKinnon to carry the load offensively as he had seven shots on goal in game one and will likely have around the same in game two as he knows how crucial this game is. During their 2022 Stanley Cup run the Avalanche never trailed in a series.
The Pick: Nathan MacKinnon over 4.5 shots on goal (-134)
Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights Player Prop Bets
Center Jack Eichel and the Vegas Golden Knights had their struggles in game one as the Winnipeg Jets controlled the game from start to finish on the road winning 5-1 to take a 1-0 series lead. The Jets showed their defensive dominance holding Vegas to 17 shots on goal and just two shots on goal in the third period. Eichel and the Golden Knights will need a big bounce back game on Thursday night. Look for Eichel to lead the charge and set the tone offensively for the Golden Knights.
The Pick: Jack Eichel over 2.5 shots on goal (-175)
