St. Louis had a momentous comeback last time out after going down 3-0 then 4-3 they pulled a win out of the bag to bring the series 3-2 in favor of Colorado. We head back to St. Louis for tonight’s NHL Game 6 with the Avalanche needing just one more win to advance.  

After going 7-3 in our previous 10 NHL player props, we are feeling confident of another profitable night. Check out what player props bets are on our radar tonight.  

Colorado Avalanche vs. St. Louis Blues 

Friday, May 27, 2022 – 08:00 PM EDT at Enterprise Center 

Blues Prop Bet: Ryan O’Reilly  

O’Reilly has picked up 12 postseason points in just 11 games and he has averaged exactly three shots per game. We also must remember that the Avalanche have pretty much shut O’Reilly down in the previous two games as he picked up zero points and a total of just 1 shot across the previous 6 periods.  

Prior to those two games, O’Reilly saw three or more shots in 7 of 9 games, we are expecting an O’Reilly comeback on home ice and expect to see him take shots on goal in another must-win game for the Blues.  

Ryan O’Reilly has been an unbelievable value bet throughout this entire playoffs, he is constantly beating his lines and the sportsbooks have still not adjusted so we will continue to make hay while the sun shines as the saying goes.

Avalanche Prop Bet: Cale Makar 

Makar has scored three goals and assisted ten. Throughout the regular season, Makar scored 28 goals and 3 goals in 9 playoffs games. While this isn’t a bad return, Makar has not scored in six games now.  

Cale Makar has really started to show us his attacking abilities as he leads the Avalanche with the tied most points this postseason along with Nathan MacKinnon.  

The Blues need to shut down the Avalanche forwards, with back-to-back player hat tricks against them it’s going to be a night for the Avalanche defensemen to get some shots on the net.  

It’s a half-unit risk we suggest here, but we do see some value in this play at +270 NHL odds.

Blues Prop Bet: Jordan Kyrou 

We cashed Kyrou over 0.5 points in the previous two games but tonight we are specifically aiming for his assist line at over 0.5 for NHL player prop odds at +165.  

Kyrou has been able to prove his playmaking abilities quite easily against the Colorado Avalanche this season as he put up 6 assists and zero goals in three regular-season games and in this series so far Kyrou has scored three goals and assisted once.  

Jordan Kyrou has been good value through the playoffs and regular season picking up points and assists goals. Although he is one of those players who you need to almost be selective with and try pounce when you think he is in for a good night on the ice. 

We feel goals coming tonight for both teams and Kyrou’s third line has been hot this series contributing 8 points from a total of 15 as well as all three players on Kyrou's third line contributing at least a point last time out.

Avalanche Prop Bet: Mikko Rantanen 

Rantanen was able to contribute 56 assists in the regular season, which was just three less than the top playmaker Nazem Kadri. Rantanen could be starting on the first or second line, which works for us, he has a lot of quality players around him on both lines and as we said we see this being another high scoring game between these two teams.  

Mikko Rantanen has been an assist machine throughout this entire season, but especially in the postseason where he has put up 10 assists in 9 games, tied for the most on the team along with Cale Makar.  

The Avalanche to edge it by a scoreline of 5 goals to 3, hopefully giving us plenty of goals to cash our NHL player props bets.
