Tuesday NHL Props

Nikita Kucherov — Over 0.5 Goals

The Atlantic Division’s third-place Tampa Bay Lightning host the Metropolitan Division’s sixth-place Columbus Blue Jackets in what is expected to be a blowout, as the Lightning are almost four-dollar favorites on the moneyline.

Kucherov has been on fire recently, scoring 12 goals over his last 12 games, and should be able to keep It going against a struggling Columbus squad.

This season, Columbus ranks dead last in the league in five-on-five expected goals against per 60 minutes (xGA). Columbus’ special teams will also have trouble containing Kucherov and the rest of Tampa Bay’s first power-play unit, as the Blue Jackets rank just 20th in the league in penalty kill percentage.

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


Charlie McAvoy — Over 0.5 Points

We have an Atlantic Division tilt as the fourth-place Boston Bruins host the first-place Florida Panthers.

McAvoy enters this contest in great form, registering 15 points over his last 15 games. He should be able to keep it going against a Florida team that’s not nearly as good defensively as it is offensively.

Florida has now given up an average of three goals per game over its last five games and now is tasked with facing a dangerous Boston offense. In his last game against Florida, McAvoy found the back of the net, and he should be good for at least one point in this matchup.

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

Sergei Bobrovsky — Over 3 Goals Allowed

In a play that has a slight correlation with the McAvoy over, I’m taking Florida’s goaltender to allow at least three goals in this game. Bobrovsky’s numbers take a dip on the road this season as his save percentage drops to 0.902.

The second half of the season has not been nearly as solid for Bobrovsky; he possesses a mere 0.899 save percentage since the All-Star break.

He will now be tasked with playing in TD Garden against a strong offense, as the Bruins rank 11th in the league in five-on-five expected goals for per 60 minutes (xGF).

I would still play this total if it jumps from 3 to 3.5.


Philipp Grubauer — Over 3.5 Goals Allowed

I’m fading another goaltender as the Seattle Kraken travel to Vancouver to take on the Canucks.

There’s no polite way of putting this, but Grubauer has been just horrendous in net all season and will most likely struggle once again against the Canucks.

This season, Grubauer ranks dead last amongst starting goaltenders in five-on-five goals saved above expected per 60 minutes (GSAx) and possesses a lowly 0.890 save percentage.

In his two starts against Vancouver this season, Grubauer has allowed seven goals on 59 shots for a 0.881 save percentage.

Vancouver’s offense has been hot recently and should be able to keep it going against Grubauer, as the Canucks have averaged 4.3 goals scored per game over their last 10 contests.

However, I would not play this total if it jumps from 3.5 to 4.


Thatcher Demko — Under 2.5 Goals Allowed

Across the ice, I’m backing Vancouver’s goaltender in this game. Demko has been dominant on home ice all season, as he boasts a 0.922 save percentage at Rogers Arena.

Currently, Demko ranks sixth amongst starting goaltenders in five-on-five goals saved above expected per 60 minutes (GSAx). In his three starts against Seattle this season, Demko is 3-0 with a stellar 0.933 save percentage.

Seattle’s offense should be nothing to fear in this game, as the Kraken rank just 31st in the league this season in five-on-five expected goals for per 60 minutes (xGF).

However, I would not play this total if it drops from 2.5 to 2.
