2016 NHL Draft: Betting Props

The NHL draft, an exciting time for NHL general managers, NHL prospects and hockey nerds – for casual hockey fans, however, not so much. To liven things up, why not bet on some NHL draft props released by online sportsbooks. OddsShark has outlined some interesting props and some possible value bets for the night that can make or break a pro hockey team.

The top three positions in the draft are all but set in stone with Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine and Jesse Puljujarvi projected to go one, two and three respectively to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Winnipeg Jets and the Vancouver Canucks.

It will get interesting after the Nucks pick, however, with the Edmonton Oilers trying to make a move for a skilled defenseman, they could possibly trade down or go off the board and take a d-man fourth instead of the skilled forward Matthew Tkachuk, who is currently projected to go fourth.

0.5 is the total set for the number of goalies drafted in the first round. Many experts have Filip Gustavsson projected to go late in the first round so at +200 the OVER looks like a decent bet at Bovada.

The majority of top NHL prospects play their hockey in the Canadian Hockey League and as such, the OVER/UNDER has been set at 16.5 players from the CHL to be drafted in the first round. There is a significant number of players from outside the CHL projected to go very high this year and we could see that 16.5 number go under by one or maybe even two.

The biggest bet available on the board is the total number of Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) players drafted in the first round. The number has been set at 3.5 and right now there are three players from the Q projected to go in the top 30 – and with a few others right on the bubble, the +230 odds may be worth a little poke.
