NHL Picks Today: Best Hockey Bets & Player Props

Golden Knights Moneyline vs. Canucks (-130, DraftKings)

The Golden Knights seem to be turning the corner on an ugly run of hockey and are now pushing to just get into the playoffs along with trying to get healthy. The Knights are 7-3 in their last 10 games and have just one loss in their last seven. Max Pacioretty appears to be getting healthier after wrist surgery and it is likely that team leader Mark Stone is also going to play tonight or soon thereafter. That should bolster a squad that has played well defensively over their last 10, allowing the sixth-fewest high-danger chances and an expected goals against total of just 2.31. The Canucks have struggled to score consistently all year, with the league’s 20th-best goal output. Now with Brock Boeser and Tanner Pearson both likely out for this tilt, they will have to rely on more bottom three forwards to put up points.

On top of all of this positive mojo, the Golden Knights have fantastic goaltending with a save percentage over 93% since the middle of March from Robin Lehner and Logan Thompson. Of any moneyline bet on the night, there are none with a more favorable hold percentage, which makes this one of OddsShopper‘s best NHL picks today.

Tomas Hertl Over 2.5 Shots On Goal (+140, Caesars)

Tomas Hertl has the best-projected ROI of any NHL prop bet on the night per Awesemo’s OddsShopper which is saying something considering there are approximately 250 players to compete against. The Sharks’ season is long but over as they face the Predators, who are still jockeying for playoff position in the West. On the year, the Sharks’ center is averaging 2.6 shots per contest and comes into tonight’s matchup with a shot projection of 2.7. The Predators have ranked in the upper half in preventing shots at 5 on 5 for most of the year, so Hertl’s output in this one will likely depend on the Predators’ willingness to take penalties. It is rather alarming the number of penalties the Predators have taken this season with a penalty minute lead of over 150 minutes.

One could argue that much of the minutes are from fighting majors and the Predators also get into plenty of scraps, but with 35 more penalties than the next closest team, that argument is frankly moot. The Sharks will get their chances on the power play and Hertl should be able to tally up a few easy shots when on the advantage.
