We’re looking forward to a lamp-lighting Tuesday in the NHL, with 24 teams in action. Here are four player props from hockey betting sites to consider for Dec. 13.
Mitch Marner Over 1.5 Total Points
All good things must come to an end – just not tonight. Marner has a more-than-favorable matchup to extend his point streak against the bottom-dwelling Ducks.
Anaheim has made a mess of its season. The Ducks own the worst record in hockey and have the dubious distinction of ranking dead-last in both goals for (2.34) and against (4.17).
They’ve given up the most shots of any team in the NHL (37.5 per game) and have an abominable 66% PK rate.
Meanwhile, the Leafs are the hottest team in the league, having not lost in regulation in their last 14 games. Marner has an excellent chance to extend his 22-game streak in a multiple-point fashion.
Jack Hughes Over 0.5 Assists
Jumpin’ Jack Hughes is on a heater. The 21-year-old center is riding an eight-game point streak, notching eight goals and 13 points in that span.
New Jersey has lost two in a row and will look to get back in the win column at home against Dallas. Hughes has recently been brilliant on home ice, registering nine points in his last four contests, including five assists.
Look for the former top pick to keep his streak alive against a Stars team in the midst of a grueling East Coast swing.
Alexander Ovechkin Over 3.5 shots
The Chicago Blackhawks rank 29th in the league in shots against. Guess who’s in town and likes to shoot the puck?
Alexander Ovechkin should have a field day in Chi-town as he continues his quest for 800. Ovi now has four goals in his last three games, and there’s a sense that he smells blood in the water.
The sniper has been shooting up a storm recently, with 25 shots in his last four games and 12 in his previous two. Ovechkin is three goals away from becoming just the third player in history to reach 800 goals.
If you think the winger can get it done tonight, you’ll get +1500 odds at FanDuel.
Taylor Hall Over 2.5 Shots
Hall has gone over 2.5 shots in seven of his last eight games, making this bet a no-brainer.
The Boston Bruins winger hasn’t had under four shots in his last four games and is coming off a six-shooter against the Vegas Golden Knights.
The Islanders are a little worse than average regarding shots against (31.6, 17th), creating a nice matchup for the former first-overall pick.
