  • Overall NHL Article Plays This Season: 90-64

San Jose Sharks vs. Boston Bruins

Sunday, January 22, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at TD Garden

David Pastrnak (Boston Bruins)

  • Over/Under Shots

David Pastrnak registered zero shots last time out in the Bruins 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers, it was the first time all season long he didn’t register a single shot in a game.

Having played 45 games Pastrnak had seen at least one shot on 2 occasions and 2+ shots in 42 of his 45 games played. As we know, Pastrnak and the Bruins are on fire right now as the Bruins are easily the best team in the NHL with a 36-5-4 record.

Pastrnak has the 5th most amount of points in the league and is currently only trailing 3rd place Nikita Kucherov by three points.

Pastrnak's Prop Pick

We are taking Pastrnak’s over 4.5 shot line at +100, the Czech player has seen 5+ game shots in 25 of his 45 games this season and on home ice, after his first shotless game of the season against this San Jose Sharks team we are very much liking this betting pick.

Pastrnak has taken the second most amount of shots in the entire NHL, only San Jose’s Timo Meier has more, and right now he only has one more with his 218 compared to Pastrnak’s 217. Tonight Pastrnak can become the outright top shot-taker in the league.

NHL Pick: David Pastrnak Over 4.5 Shots (+100) at BetOnline

Brad Marchand (Boston Bruins)

  • Over/Under Points

The Bruins come into this matchup having won 3 of their previous 15 compared to the Sharks who have lost 11 of their previous 15.

Marchand's Prop Pick

Marchand represents some good value to see 2+ points tonight at +155 with BetOnline. Marchand has seen the second most amount of points scored on this Bruins roster to date, having played 10 games less than most players, including David Pastrnak.

Marchand’s points per game average is 1.16, which isn’t far behind Pastrnak’s 1.40.

The 32-year-old has been on fire since the start of 2023, having seen 2+ game points in 4 of his 9 games played and has scored at least one point in 8 of the previous 9.

Los Angeles Kings vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Sunday, January 22, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at United Center

Kevin Fiala (L.A. Kings)

  • Over/Under Points

The Los Angeles Kings were flying up the Western Conference table only a few days ago but have since stalled in 6th place, having gone 0-3 in their last three NHL games.

Although they are on the road tonight, they do face the Chicago Blackhawks, who are easily one of the worst teams in the NHL this year with an overall record of 14-26-4. The Blackhawks are a bottom 6th ranked defence and will likely be lower come the end of the season.

Fiala's Prop Bet

We are laying a chunk of juice at -175 here for Kevin Fiala to score at least one point in tonight’s matchup. We don’t advise laying any more than -200.

Fiala has been the Kings top points scorer thus far this season, having scored 47 points in 48 games, which is ten more than second-best Anze Kopitar. Fiala has failed to score a point now in his previous two games, so this looks like a perfect bounce back spot for the Kings winger who has scored at least one point 50% of the time this season.

Yes, we are laying a lot of juice here, admittedly as good as the stats look, this is a gut feeling play.

NHL Pick: Kevin Fiala Over 0.5 Points (-175) at BetOnline

Winnipeg Jets vs. Philadelphia Flyers

Sunday, January 22, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at Wells Fargo Center

Pierre-Luc Dubois (Winnipeg Jets)

  • Over/Under Points

The Jets' 3rd-highest points scorer this season, Dubois has seen 49 points in 47 games played, which is a solid ratio.

We are opposing a big cold streak here as Dubois has only seen a game point in one of his previous six games, which is his longest such streak thus far this season.

Dubois' Prop Pick

Dubois has scored a point in his previous two games against the Flyers, and we are hoping he can make it third time lucky tonight at NHL player prop betting odds of -140 to score over 0.5 points in this NHL matchup.

NHL Pick: Pierre-Luc Dubois Over 0.5 Points (-140) at Heritage Sports (visit our Heritage Sports Review)
