NHL Betting: Player Props – Pastrnak, Smith, & Lindholm – 03/16/22

With just four games on the schedule, I bring you a few props to also bet on. Two players from the Boston Bruins and one from the Calgary Flames.

Anytime Goal-Scorer – David Pastrnak (Over 0.5, +125)

David Pastrnak has scored nine goals in the past 12 games and is still one of the NHL’s most prolific goal-scorers. He has really picked up his play in the second half of the season after a tough start. He is rolling and has seemed to have really popped off this season once he was moved to the second line to spread out scoring and get him going.

Pastrnak is averaging just about 4.5 shots per game, so there are plenty of opportunities to get one past a Minnesota Wild team that can’t keep the puck out of their net.

Anytime Goal-Scorer – Craig Smith (Over 0.5, +350)

Craig Smith has been one of the hottest goal-scorers over the past two weeks, potting seven goals in the past six games, including his first career hat trick. He has scored in four of six of those games and he, just like Pastrnak, comes into Minnesota facing a team that has an .873 team save percentage over the last 10 games where they have only won three games.

These are amazing odds for someone as hot as Smith recently and the best-valued prop in regards to a goal you can count on out there.

Anytime Goal-Scorer – Elias Lindholm (Over 0.5, +115)

Next, we go over to Calgary where the Flames have stayed hot, led by the goal-scoring of first-line centre Elias Lindholm. He has 16 goals in the past 18 games and has a favourable matchup in net in Jon Gillies for the New Jersey Devils coming off a loss last night.

Gillies has a 3.33 goals-against average and the Flames have the sixth-most goals scored in the league. They are going to score goals, and you should bet on Lindholm being one of those goal-scorers tonight.
