Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks

McDavid Value to Assist

Connor McDavid ended the regular season with 100 assists and thus far this postseason he has been on fire as the player with the most assists during the playoffs to date having had 16 assists in 9 games.

Only once in those nine games has McDavid failed to have an assist and that was during game three of this series. McDavid is going through his worst assist streak since the start of the playoffs having had zero and one in each of his previous two games.

When McDavid is hot, stay out of his way, let’s hope he gets hot for Thursday’s matchup and bangs in over 1.5 assists for the sixth time in ten games.

In Stanley Cup futures, we look at the odds for teams as top contenders vie for hockey glory.

The Pick

His current odds to see over 1.5 assists is coming in at +130 NHL betting odds, a set of odds we are more than happy to take on the league’s best player, we would happily bet this down to +115.
