NHL Props Picks – October 28, 2017

NHL Props Picks – October 28, 2017
Saturday night hockey on October 28th features some of the best prop bets of the week, including three Canadian teams in the process of reversing negative trends. The Canadiens seek offense from their captain Max Pacioretty, who tends to play well against the Rangers. Toronto welcomes Philadelphia in the hopes of improving their defensive coverage, while the Oilers want to build on a promising week, moving back towards the top of the Pacific Division.

NHL Player Prop Of The Day – Rangers at Canadiens

Max Pacioretty Breaks Out Of Slump

Max probably deserves the most sympathy of all the struggling Canadiens. After Chara nearly decapitated Pacioretty in 2011, Max ended up winning the Masterson for his remarkable comeback the next season. Since his recovery, he’s been the most consistent Habs contributor, averaging 31.5 goals per season over the past six years. 

Currently, the Canadiens captain is on pace to finish with less than 20 goals, his lowest total since an injury-riddled campaign in 2012-13, when he scored 15 goals in 44 games. Prior to the recent Rangers shutout, Max notched points against New York in four of five previous regular season games, notching 2 goals and 5 assists.

With Rangers backup Ondrej Pavelec protecting the net, Max will have a great chance to earn a point against New York. With only a pair of goals in ten games, Pacioretty’s bound to break out, especially after directing 20 shots on goal over the past three games. Prop odds give him a -125 moneyline to earn a point, and a +180 line to score a goal tonight – excellent value for the Habs leader.

NHL Puckline Of The Day – Capitals at Oilers

Home Team Dominates Meetings Between Caps, Oil

The Washington Capitals have slowed down after a red-hot start to the year, while the Edmonton Oilers have been slowly building from a disappointing beginning to the season. Washington’s 1-4-0 in their last five, losing all four by two or more goals. The Oilers are 2-2-1 in their last five, including four consecutive one-goal decisions.

Edmonton’s 4-6-0 against Washington over their last ten meetings, but the home team won 19 of the last 24 matchups, giving the Oilers an historical advantage. Current and historic trends point to an Edmonton win this evening, and the puckline for the Oilers stands at +210 – one of the better values on Saturday.

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby hasn’t been his magical self lately, and injuries to Niskanen, Burakovsky and Connolly rob Washington of much needed depth. As such, Edmonton beating the spread appears to be one of the best pucklines of the eve.

NHL Over/Under Of The Day – Flyers at Maple Leafs

Toronto and Philly Score Buckets Of Goals

Get ready for Joe Bowen to yell “Holy Mackinaw” several times during tonight’s game between the Flyers and the Maple Leafs. During their last ten meetings, Philly and T.O. average 6.2 goals per game. Over the last five, the average jumps to 6.8 goals per match. Four of five previous meetings have resulted in six goals or more, while six of ten resulted in at least six goals.

This year, the Leafs have been one of the most productive offensive forces while allowing teams to fire away at goalie Frederik Andersen. Three Saturday night games have been over the projected total, as well as eight of ten overall.

As usual, Philly doesn’t have the greatest goaltending or defense, winning games mostly on their offensive strength. Six of ten Flyers matchups this year have resulted in six or more goals combined. Since the over/under for this match rests at six, go ahead and bet on the over, which is slightly favored at -115.
