  • I pick some favorable NHL game prop bets to consider for today's games.
  • Lines are provided by BetMGM sportsbook.

There are 15 games for Wednesday’s NHL slate, and I’ve identified some favorable game prop bets on the BetMGM Sportsbook for you to consider ahead of the today’s action.

NHL Game Prop Bets: Wednesday, Nov. 23

David Pastrňák Over 1.5 Points (+160)

Boston Bruins vs. Florida Panthers, 7:05 p.m. ET

The Bruins have had a great start to the season, currently leading the league with a record of 17-2-0, but the Panthers (9-8-2) have a fair bit of catching up to do. Facing off against the Panthers, I think two points by Pastrňák tonight is very doable.

So far this season, Pastrňák has recorded 12 goals, 17 assists, 29 points, and 98 shots in 19 games. He’s managed at least two points in two of his last four games, so seems to have no intention of slowing down. It’s still quite early in the year, and I’m excited to see the 26-year-old’s stats continue to go up.

At +160 for 1.5 points, the money is great and I love this prop.

Alex Tuch Over 0.5 Assists (+105)

St. Louis Blues vs. Buffalo Sabres, 7:05 p.m. ET

Any assist bet is always a little risky, but I have a good feeling about Tuch tonight.

Tuch has recorded 10 goals, nine assists, 19 points, and 48 shots this season, including at least one assists in three of his last four games. Against the Blues, whose record of 10-8-0 is admittedly a fair bit stronger than the Sabres’ 8-11-0, I still think Tuch will be able to add another assist to his list.

At +105, the money could be better, but for 0.5 assists, I still like this prop a lot.

Mitch Marner Over 1.5 Points (+160)

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New Jersey Devils, 7:05 p.m. ET

Marner is having a great season so far. He’s recorded four goals, 19 assists, 23 points, and 42 shots in 20 games, and the right winger seems to only just be getting started. With at least one point in each of his last five games and two in one of them, I have a good feeling about Marner managing another two tonight.

The Maple Leafs have a record of 10-5-5, and while that’s nothing to scoff at, the Devils are sitting in second place in the league at 16-3-0. He will have to come in extremely hot tonight, but Marner should have ample opportunity to show his stuff.

At +160 for 1.5 points, the money is good and I love this prop.

What is an NHL Prop Bet?

NHL prop bets don’t specifically focus on the outcome of an NHL game but look at in-game events, such as how many goals will be scored in each period, when the goals will be scored, etc. 

You can also direct your attention to player props, where you can choose which individuals you think will score in each contest. 

Types of NHL Prop Bets 

BetMGM has an array of game prop bets for each NHL game, including but not exhaustive to the following:

  • Winning margin
  • Which team will score the first goal?
  • Correct score 
  • In which period will the most goals be scored? 
  • Time of the first goal
  • Will both teams score one or more goals in the first period/second period/third period?
  • Which team will be the first to reach three goals? 
  • Will both teams score three or more goals (including OT and shootout)? 

How To Bet NHL Prop Bets

Locking in NHL props couldn’t be easier. First, head to the NHL betting page and select a specific game. Then go to the main betting page or select game props on the dropdown arrow. 

Click on the prop bets you’d like to commit to and place your desired wager amount (stake). Then, place your bet, sit back, and enjoy the on-ice action.
