2015 NHL Draft: Prop Betting at Books

Twenty five forwards were selected in the first round of the NHL Draft last year. Including hotshot prospect Connor McDavid, how many forwards will get selected in the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft on Friday night? That's the subject of one of the NHL Draft betting props now available at Bovada.

The online sportsbook has the OVER/UNDER for forwards selected in the first round of this year's NHL Draft set at 21, with both sides set at a line of -120. McDavid and fellow forward Jack Eichel are widely expected to go first and second overall on Friday to the Edmonton Oilers and the Buffalo Sabres.

The OVER/UNDER for defensemen taken in the first round of this year's NHL Draft is then at 8.5 at Bovada, with the OVER/UNDER for goaltenders taken in the first round at 0.5. In 2014 there were five defensemen and zero goaltenders taken in the first round of the NHL Draft.

The OVER/UNDER for the number of Canadian players selected in the first round is set at 47.2% at the sportsbook, while the OVER/UNDER for the number of trades made on the first day of the draft on Friday is set at 5.5 - with a -140 line on the OVER and EVEN odds on the UNDER for that betting prop.
