Penguins -1.5 Puckline vs. Blue Jackets (-125, FanDuel)

The Penguins head into Columbus as big-time favorites (-330) as they continue their push towards the playoffs, with seven wins in their last 10 games. The Penguins have finally gotten healthy with what appears to be a full-strength roster and could be even stronger tonight if trade addition Rickard Rakell can play. With the addition of the depth winger, Pittsburgh should bolster their scoring and puck control even further, which rank in the top third of the league already. The Blue Jackets are on the complete opposite side of the spectrum as one of the league’s worst, especially in chance prevention, where they have allowed nearly 100 more shots on goal than any other team.

Being a big favorite on the road is never the most ideal situation, but with the Jackets’ defensive issues and the firepower the Penguins carry, they will have no issues scoring with a 4.3 implied goal total. If either of the average goaltenders in Pittsburgh can just keep the home team under four goals, chances are the Penguins get there on empty-net opportunities.

Pavel Buchnevich Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (+120, Caesars)

With the highest expected ROI of any NHL shot prop bet on the slate, this looks like an easy NHL pick today. The Blues’ Pavel Buchnevich is currently sitting with over/under 2.5 shots. On the year, the Blues’ winger is averaging just under three shots per contest with 150 fired off in 52 games and comes with a similar NHL projection of 2.9 shots. Over the last 10 contests, Buchnevich has hit the over seven times with multiple games over three, along with hitting it in each of the last three. The Capitals have been mediocre to above average all year in terms of shot prevention, but Buchnevich’s line should see the Washington depth on the road, which bodes well for them.

The Blues, like many teams, have had a lot of line changes all year with injuries and player movement but have found some continuity with their lines, which has benefited the likes of Buchnevich. With an expected win percentage of 58%, there is plenty of reason to back the talented winger in an average matchup.
