Best NHL Player Prop Bets for April 6

profile image of Eric.Kelly

Monday player props plays were very good to us as we went 3-1 on the night for some nice profits. Although we have just 5 NHL games tonight, we have found a player prop play in four of the five games!

No doubt the biggest game on tonight’s card is the Tampa Bay Lightning on the road to the Washington Capitals, and we are targeting our only loss on Monday night to get on the scoreboard in this one. So let’s break down some NHL odds!

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Washington Capitals

Wednesday, April 06, 2022 – 07:30 PM EDT at Capital One Arena

Brayden Point (Lightning)

  • Will He Score at Any Time Yes/No

We took Point to get on the scoreboard last time out against the Maple Leafs. Unfortunately, he and the Lightning had a horrible game, losing 6-2. The Lightning were -3 on the night when Point was on the ice. We were expecting the Lightning to score 3/4 goals last time out and it just didn’t happen for them.

We think this game has the potential to see the Lightning put a few past this Capitals team who has allowed 21 goals in their previous 5 home games, an average of just over 4 goals per game.

Point is the Lightning's 2nd highest scorer this season, but impressively he is just 5 goals behind 1st placed Steven Stamkos despite having played 13 games less. Tampa Bay to win 5-2.

Detroit Red Wings vs. Winnipeg Jets

Wednesday, April 06, 2022 – 07:30 PM EDT at Canada Life Centre

Kyle Connor (Jets)

  • Over/Under 1.5 Points

The Jets play host to the Detroit Red Wings tonight and we are targeting their most points player Kyle Connor to see over 1.5 match points at +125. Last time out Kyle didn’t manage a single point, which was just the 13th time in 67 matches that he hadn’t scored at least one point.

The Jets take the 11th most amount of shots in the NHL and Detroit allows the 6th most amount of shots. This Red Wings team has been falling apart for a few weeks now, allowing 4.5 goals in their previous ten road games and winning just two of those ten.

Kyle has averaged 2+ points in almost one-third of games this season, the Jets will be glad to be facing this Detroit team on home ice tonight and we expect an easy 5-2 Jets win.

Calgary Flames vs. Anaheim Ducks

Wednesday, April 06, 2022 – 10:00 PM EDT at Honda Center

Matthew Tkachuk (Flames)

  • Over/Under 2.5 Shots

Another dismal team right now is the Anaheim Ducks, who have fallen on hard times allowing 4.1 goals in their previous 10 home games and taking a loss in 8 out of those 10.

The Flames are the second-best defense in the league and have taken the 7th most amount of shots. You know we always like to lay some juice on a player to go over the 2.5 shots line and today's pick is Matthew Tkachuk.

Check Out: BMR's NHL Betting Forum

The 24-year-old from Arizona has been one of the most consistent players in the league, picking up the 8th most amount of points this season. We see this Flames team pounding Anaheim with shots tonight and Tkachuk will get his fair share of them as he is the team's 2nd highest shot taker (and only two shots behind 1st)

Tkachuk has seen three or more shots in 11 of his previous 15 games and he went over the total in all three previous games against the Ducks this season.

NHL Prop Pick: Matthew Tkachuk Over 2.5 Shots (-140) at BetOnline

Vancouver Canucks vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Wednesday, April 06, 2022 – 10:00 PM EDT at T-Mobile Arena

Alex Pietrangelo (Golden Knights)

  • Will He Score at Any Time Yes/No

Our final NHL prop pick on Wednesday's card is the Golden Knights' top defensive scorer to get on the board tonight at +400. These seem like a strong set of odds for a hot-handed Alex Pietrangelo, who has scored in 3 of his previous 5 NHL games.

Check Out: Our 2022 Sportsbook Rating Guide

The Knights haven’t got one specific out-and-out goalscorer outside of maybe Max Pacioretty, who is currently injured. They have shared a lot of the goalscoring around this season and that’s very favorable for our play here.

Pietrangelo is the team's 6th highest scorer this season, and as we said, he has scored 3 in his last 5. Golden Knights to win 4-1 on home ice. Advise risking only a ½ on this play.
