We’re going to get started with some Tampa Bay Lightning player props odds before moving on to some fun-filled head-to-head player matchups odds. With that said, let’s go.

Steven Stamkos 4th Round Points

 

NHL-Odds-Steven-Stamkos-2015

Must Play in Game 1 of the Series For Action

Over 5 -130

Under 5 -120

Analysis: Stamkos is ninth in playoff scoring with seven goals and 10 assists in 20 postseason game. I think the Over five points looks like a lock here.

The Pick: Over

 

Tyler Johnson 4th Round Points

NHL-odds-Tyler-Johnson-2015

Over/Under 5 -120

Analysis: Seriously? Tyler Johnson’s O/U point total for the finals is just five points? I mean, unless Johnson is forced to play blindfolded and with one arm tied behind his back, he’s an unadulterated lock to go Over this too low total.

The Pick: Over

 

Nikita Kucherov 4th Round Points

 

NHL-odds-Nikita-Kucherov-2015

 

Over/Under 4½ -120

Analysis: With nine goals and 10 assists in 20 postseason games, Nikita Kucherov is  fourth in scoring while averaging just short of one point per game. I like Kucherov to easily top his player props O/U total.

The Pick: Over

 

Who will score more Points in the Series?

NHL-odds-Patrick-Kane-2015

Patrick Kane (CHI)-130

Steven Stamkos -110

Analysis: Kane is third in postseason scoring with 20 points in 17 games while Stamkos has scored 17 points in 20 playoff games. Kane will win this head-to-head matchup by a few points.

The Pick: Patrick Kane

Jonathan Toews -135

Tyler Johnson -105

Analysis: Toews is eighth in playoff scoring with nine goals and nine assists in 17 games while Tyler Johnson leads all players in postseason goal scoring (12) and points (21). This matchup is going to be very close, but in the end, I’m going with Johnson to win – en route to bagging the Conn Smythe Trophy!

The Pick: Tyler Johnson

Who will score more Points in the Series?

 

NHL-Odds-Patrick-Kane-Chicago-Blackhawks-2015

 

Patrick Kane -130

Jonathan Toews -110

Analysis: Kane, Chicago’s all-star right-winger is third in postseason scoring with 10 goals and 20 total points in 17 games while all-star center Jonathan Toews is eighth in playoff scoring with nine goals and nine assists. I’m going with Patrick Kane to win this head-to-head matchup by the slimmest of margins.

NHL-odds-Jonathan-Toews-2015

Analysis: Tampa Bay’s Ben Bishop is seventh in save percentage (.920) in 20 postseason game while Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford has a .923 save percentage (13th) in 13 playoff games. Crawford actually takes a backset in save percentage to backup Scott Darling (.950) in four games. I’m going with the underrated Ben Bishop to win this head-to-head matchup.
