Picks Summary:  

  • Tage Thompson (Buffalo Sabres) – Over 3.5 Shots (+100)  
  • Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers) – Anytime Goalscorer (-130) 
  • Kyle Connor (Winnipeg Jets) – Over 1.5 Points (+135) 

With 12 games and 10 goals scored against Atlantic division opponents already this season, we are looking to lay the juice on Connor McDavid to add to that number tonight as our top NHL pick.  

Elsewhere we are sticking with the Oilers and Sabres matchup as we look to this season’s most improved player Tage Thompson as well as the Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks matchup where we are targeting Kyle Connor’s points total.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Buffalo Sabres 

Monday, March 6, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at KeyBank Center  

Tage Thompson (Buffalo Sabres) 

 Over/Under Shots  

  • Goals Scored: 42 
  • Goals Assisted: 40 
  • Shots Per Game: 3.85 

We are targeting the Buffalo Sabres leading shot taker Tage Thompson to register 4+ shots or over 3.5 shots in this NHL home matchup against the Edmonton Oilers.  

Thompson has been averaging almost four shots per game with an average of 3.85 overall this season.

We are very much liking this as a bounce-back spot for Thompson who only registered two shots earlier in the season when he faced the Oilers. In his previous two NHL games, Thompson has only seen one shot on both occasions.  

Buffalo needs to win this game if they want to keep pushing toward making the playoffs and given how many goals the Oilers could score, Thompson might need to take a lot of shots to keep up.

Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers)

Anytime Goalscorer 

  • Goals Scored: 52 
  • Goals Assisted: 70 
  • Shots Per Game: 4.45 

We don’t mind laying the juice here on Connor McDavid to find the back of the net as he has scored 52 goals in just 64 played. McDavid is also looking for a bounce-back night here as well having failed to score in his matchup against the Sabres in the first meeting between these two teams.  

McDavid has also failed to score in his previous two NHL outings after having previously scored two goals for 5 games in a row, totaling an impressive 10 goals in just five games.  

He is the best player in the NHL and the world right now and it’s very rare for McDavid to go three games without a goal and even rarer for him to face a team twice and not score.  

Give us Connor McJesus to get on the scoreboard in this NHL matchup at (-130) betting odds against a Buffalo Sabres team that allows 3.56 goals per game (the 8th worst in the NHL).

San Jose Sharks vs. Winnipeg Jets 

Monday, March 6, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Canada Life Centre  

Kyle Connor (Winnipeg Jets)  

Over/Under Points 

  • Goals Scored: 27 
  • Goals Assisted: 41 
  • Shots Per Game: 3.42 

Kyle Connor could be due some points tonight and at (+135) NHL betting odds for him to see 2+ points on home ice against this San Jose Sharks team who allow 3.71 goals per game (the league’s 3rd worst), we are more than happy to make this bet and believe there to be value down to as low as (+115).  

Connor has dominated the Western Conference this season scoring 43 points in just 35 games played and has even had 23 points in 19 played against the Pacific division.

The Sharks have yet to face Connor this season, and this San Jose team has been really bad in their previous five games, allowing 5.3 goals on average and come into this off the back of an 8-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.  

Despite seeing just 2+ points on 17 occasions this season, Connor has had 12 of those come against Western Conference teams. The Jets should win this one pretty easily and we expect them to put up a number of goals.
