- Overall NHL Record This Season: 49-23
Anaheim Ducks vs. St. Louis Blues
Monday, November 21, 2022 – 08:00 PM EST at Enterprise Center
Jordan Kyrou (St. Louis Blues)
- Over 3.5 Shots
This matchup is a repeat of Saturday night’s game as the Blues played host to Anaheim, winning 6-2. During that game, Blues centre Kyrou had just 2 shots but did produce a hat-trick of assists.
Kyrou has averaged 3.3 shots per game this season and has only seen 4+ game shots in 4 of his previous 5 games, and since the start of the season has only cleared his over 3.5 shot line in 8 of 17 games played.
Kyrou hasn’t been shooting as much in recent games, and given a 3.5 shot line we would almost always be on the Under here, but this is the Anaheim Ducks, who have allowed the most shots by far this season (57 shots more than the Washington Capitals despite having played 2 games less).
The Blues have at least three players missing (potentially 6) including Vladimir Tarasenko. We are prepared to take Kyrou over 3.5 shots on home ice at plus money.
Frank Vatrano (Anaheim Ducks)
- Over 2.5 Shots
We are happy to lay -130 on Ducks player Frank Vatrano to see 3+ shots tonight. Vatrano has averaged 3.5 shots per game this season and has been the Ducks' highest shot-taker to date.
Vatrano only managed to take 2 shots on Saturday night, but he has seen 3+ shots 75% of the time this season and hit at least 2 shots on 16 of 18 occasions.
Vatrano had 3+ shots in 9 of his previous 10 games prior to having only taken 2 shots in his previous two games.
Ottawa Senators vs. San Jose Sharks
Monday, November 21, 2022 – 10:30 PM EST at SAP Center at San Jose
Timo Meier (San Jose Sharks)
- Anytime Goalscorer
Having scored a goal in 7 of his previous 10 games, Timo Meier has since gone two games without a goal but has still contributed to his team picking up an assist in both games. Meier has taken 95 shots this season (the most of any player in the NHL).
It’s a little bit surprising to see Meier only scored 8 goals in 95 shots, compared to teammate Erik Karlsson who has 11 goals in 65 shots. That said, it’s a long season and Meier should improve his shot percentage over the course of the year.
The Senators have allowed the 8th most amount of goals so far this season allowing 3.47 per game. We are liking Meier’s chances at NHL odds of +110 on home ice to get back on the scoreboard.
The Senators are the 2nd worst team in the NHL right now. The Sharks are 0-2 in their previous two games following a 3-0 winning streak, they should be targeting a win here.
NHL Pick: Timo Meier Anytime Goalscorer (+110) at BetOnline
Alex DeBrincat (Ottawa Senators)
- Over 3.5 Shots
Without a doubt, we were looking at Alex DeBrincat under 3.5 shot line, but given the fact he is +120 to see 4 or more shots against a weak team, we are liking DeBrincat for a bounce-back spot.
The reason we were liking the Under? He has only seen 4+ match shots in 1 of his previous 9 games. Prior to that, DeBrincat started the season having gone over his 3.5 shot line in 6 of his first 8 Senators games. DeBrincat has also seen under 3.5 shots in 7 of his 8 previous games against the Sharks.
DeBrincat has been averaging 3.5 shots per game this season. This really feels like a good spot for DeBrincat to get some shots, but we wouldn’t take any odds less than +115. If you can find an over 2.5 alternative line at around -125 or better at the best sportsbooks, you should take that.
NHL Pick: Alex DeBrincat Over 3.5 Shots (+120) at BetOnline
