Sport: NHL Friday bets: Five shot prop plays

Report: Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun was 'disappointed' he wasn't traded

  Report: Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun was 'disappointed' he wasn't traded Chychrun reportedly “welcomed” the idea of being traded to another club at the deadline and was “disappointed” that no deal was eventually reached. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun While that may come as a surprise to some observers, just one look at the NHL’s standings could explain his reported stance more clearly. With the Montreal Canadiens’ win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Coyotes now sit last in the NHL with a 20-40-4 record.

Well, let's not hide from Thursday night, it went quite horribly. The good run we've been on had to hit a roadblock eventually, and it did so in fantastic fashion.

It's a new day, and we're trusting in the numbers and trends to back up these shot on goal (SOG) prop bets.

On the five-game slate, I see value, and as such, we've got five NHL plays for the night.

Vladimir Tarasenko over 2.5 SOG (-142 FD)

I know the odds aren't fantastic here, but this is a case of not wanting to attach another outcome to a play I really like.

NHL Thursday bets: Brad Marchand-Sam Bennett among props to target

  NHL Thursday bets: Brad Marchand-Sam Bennett among props to target With nine games on the docket in the NHL, there are clear targets that pop up, so we'll be continuing our approach to find the best prop spots of the day. I've enjoyed digging into the hockey slate in the morning and following my initial instincts. With that in mind, these were the first four plays that stood out.Parlay: Brad Marchand over 2.5 SOG & Sam Bennett point (+166 DK)I need a piece of Brad Marchand Thursday at this number, a total he has surpassed in seven of his last eight at home and nine of 10 overall.He gets a good target to keep the shots up in New Jersey, who allow 33.

Tarasenko has been steady lately, hitting his SOG prop in seven of his last nine home games. His attempts top the team, averaging 6.0 in his last five.

The Wild have been more generous to shots on the road, allowing 32.1 in their last 10 and 31.8 in their last five.

In Tarasenko's lone meeting against Minnesota this season, he finished with five SOG on eight attempts.

As we will get to in a bit, the Wild have been allowing teams power-play opportunities quite a bit lately, and Tarasenko is second on the team in power-play shots in the past 25 games.

He'll start our night off.

Josh Morrissey over 2.5 SOG (+110 DK)

We're back to our old friend Josh Morrissey, who continues to roll against his SOG prop.

He has now covered this line in 12 of his last 16 games, including eight of 10 at home. He's also gone over 2.5 in both games against Colorado this season.

  Panthers avoid upset by erasing four-goal deficit to beat Devils The Panthers had to score five unanswered to erase a four-goal deficit in the third period and win in overtime, 7-6. © John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports Gustav Forsling's second goal won the game for the Panthers in OT. Florida trailed 6-2 at the end of the second period, but got the comeback started with a goal from Brandon Montour five-and-a-half minutes in the third. Gustav Forsling cut the lead to two and then Aleksander Barkov scored back-to-back goals in the last five minutes to even the score and send the game to overtime. BARKY SENDS US TO OT! pic.twitter.

The Avs have been a fine target to defensemen, allowing the 12th most shots to the position since March 1 and seeing defensemen routinely go over three SOGs against them lately.

As a team, Colorado is allowing 35.1 shots per game on the road in their last 10, making them a great target this evening.

Pierre-Luc Dubois over 2.5 SOG (-145 DK)

I'm double-dipping against the Avalanche, I think there's enough to go around.

I know he's another juiced guy but I can't ignore both Dubois's success and his attempt numbers.

PLD has covered his SOG in five of six and four straight at home. It's his home volume that really brings this to the finish line. In his past five in Winnipeg, Dubois is averaging 7.0 shot attempts per game.

With a 63% hit-rate on the year at home, I'm willing to drink the juice against this generous opponent. Dubois has 10 shots against Colorado in two games this season.

Valeri Nichuskin over 2.5 SOG (-130 DK)

We stay in this game with Valeri Nichuskin. We had Nichuskin loaded up the other night before he missed the game, and the logic all remains the same.

NHL Sunday bets: Five plus-money props

  NHL Sunday bets: Five plus-money props Let's end this great week of NHL betting strong with some Shots on Goal (SOG) props. There are nine games on the schedule on Sunday, offering us plenty of shot value. © Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports Vegas Golden Knights center Jack Eichel I have five bets loaded up, all in the plus-money variety. Let's get to the spots. Parlay: Dylan Larkin and Dougie Hamilton over 2.5 SOG (+167 DK)We start with a parlay for two players with solid location trends.Dylan Larkin has been much better on the road, hitting his SOG in nine of his last 12 games. His attempts also fly up on road ice for some reason, averaging 7.

He's rolling with the injuries plaguing this roster, going over 2.5 SOG in eight of ten, often finishing with four.

Winnipeg is allowing 34.2 shots per game at home in their past 10, I like Nichuskin to continue his involvement here.

.5u: Steven Stamkos & David Perron over 2.5 SOG (+250 DK)

Consider this one an experiment.

Stamkos is playing Boston, a team averaging the most penalties per game in the last 10. Perron is playing a Minnesota team with similar issues, averaging the eighth-most penalties per game in the same span.

When slicing power-play shots in the last 25 games, these players are so heavily involved for their teams that it felt right to follow the data.

Stamkos is second in the NHL in the last 25 games with 34 power-play shots, which is 16 higher than the next closest player on the Lightning.

Perron is third in the NHL in this span, with 30 shots on the power play. That's 12 higher than the next closest Blues player (Tarasenko from above).

I think you likely understand this logic. I'm combining the two and risking just a half-unit, for science.

Best of luck Friday night! Let's get back on track in the NHL on this fine Friday evening.
