We have a stacked 10-game slate of NHL hockey games Tuesday, with an abundance of options to pick through on PrizePicks. Below, I give out five PrizePicks flex plays, focusing in particular on the Bruins-Red Wings game.

For those unfamiliar with PrizePicks flex plays, getting 5/5 correct registers a 10x payout, 4/5 correct registers a 2x payout, and 3/5 correct registers a 0.4x payout.

You can also take these plays and do smaller parlays with just two or three props for lower payouts.


What is PrizePicks? A daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (30) than sports betting is! — PrizePicks offers a unique opportunity for action on player props in which you parlay two or more plays together.

Tuesday NHL Props

David Pastrnak — Over 0.5 Goals

We have an Atlantic Division tilt as the third-place Boston travels to Detroit to take on the fifth-place Red Wings. Pastrnak has really turned It up in the second half of the season, scoring five goals over his last six games.

The Bruins’ superstar winger will have a great matchup against Detroit as they are projected to start Alex Nedeljkvoic between the pipes. Nedeljkovic has allowed four or more goals in three consecutive starts, posting a horrible 0.816 save percentage during that stretch.

I would not play this if the total jumps from 0.5 to 1.

Brad Marchand — Over 0.5 Assists 

I already talked about how Pastrnak could be in line for a goal, and that has a strong correlation to Marchand collecting at least one assist. Marchand has collected an assist in three of the last four games in which Pastrnak has scored.

Both guys run the first power play unit in Boston, which could have a field day against a Detroit team that ranks dead last in the league in penalty kill percentage this season. This year, Detroit ranks just 27th in the league in five-on-five expected goals against per 60 minutes.

I would not play this if the total jumps from 0.5 to 1.

Alex Nedeljkovic — Over 3.5 Goals Allowed

I discussed Nedeljkovic’s poor form in the Pastrnak section of this article, and this play has a great correlation with the first two. I do not expect Nedeljkovic to break out of his slide against a Boston lineup that ranks 11th in the league in 5-on-5 expected goals for per 60 minutes.

As mentioned in the Marchand section, the defense in front of Nedeljkovic has not been any help either. In his last start against Boston, Nedeljkovic gave up five goals.

I would not play this if the total jumps from 3.5 to 4.

Mika Zibanejad — Over 0.5 Assists

We have a Metropolitan Division matchup as the second-place New York Rangers travel to New Jersey to take on the sixth-place Devils. This is the fourth matchup between these teams this season as the Rangers have scored three or more goals in all three of the previous meetings.

Zibanejad has recorded an assist in two of those three matchups and has registered seven assists over his last eight games. Nico Daws is the projected starting goaltender and has been awful recently as he has allowed four or more goals in six of his last eight starts, posting a mere 0.857 save percentage over that stretch.

I would not play this if the total jumps from 0.5 to 1.

Artemi Panarin — Over 2.5 Shots on Goal

There is a slight correlation with the Zibanejad play as Mika could set up Panarin on the first power play unit. Regardless if that happens or not, I like Panarin to reach at least three shots on goal in this matchup.

Panarin has started to turn It up offensively as he has notched three goals over his last five games, including his last outing where he also registered seven shots on goal. He will have a good opportunity to see the net a lot again in this matchup as the Devils have allowed an average of 35.8 shots on goal over their last four games.

I would not play this if the total jumps from 0.5 to 1.
