The night’s NHL betting slate has 11 games to pick and choose from. With so many games running there is plenty of value around the league, as games that do not carry the names like Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews go overlooked. To help us find those values, we will use all the tools available at Awesemo.

Best NHL Bets Today: Player Prop Odds & Betting Picks

Red Wings vs. Stars Over 5.5 (-115, SugarHouse)

There have been few teams at the beginning of the year that have played more entertaining, poor defensive hockey than the Red Wings, with over 950 scoring chances in their 17 games played. They have the third-most expected goals in the league, but what makes this better for NHL betting is their dead-last expected goals against, which is just one goal short of their actual goals allowed of 55. This should aid the homestanding Stars immensely, as they come in with a bottom-five offense in nearly every category including, goals per game (just 2.38).

Movement in this game should stay low, as most will likely be focused on the lopsided matchup in St. Louis with the Blues taking on the pitiful Coyotes while getting nearly identical odds to the over. If the Stars can continue to convert 29.4% of the power plays (third best in NHL), they should have no problem matching whatever the Wings put up on the board.

Evgeny Kuznetsov to Score a Goal (+1150, SugarHouse)

This game should be loaded with offense as the third- and fourth-highest scoring teams face off in Anaheim. The matchup here is all about the five-on-five, as the Capitals have surprisingly scored the league’s most at full strength, but they have struggled on the power play. Evgeny Kuznetsov will benefit from this regardless of the situation, as he paces Capital forwards in ice time with over 21 minutes per game. Getting better than 10-1 odds on Kuznetsov when teammate Alex Ovechkin is +450 feels like a no-brainer pivot with 3x value.

DFS has been a big part of my life since 2016 and has changed my career path and quality of life so much I can't not love it. I enjoy all sports and I'm definitely not a diehard Packers fan, or any team for that matter besides maybe the Wild. Love to travel with the wife and kid - Germany if I'm picking a favorite place. Hope to help people make more thoughtful, and informed, DFS decisions.
