NHL Playoffs: OVER/UNDER Props

If you’re like me and you watch every minute of NHL playoff hockey, you and your significant other may not see eye to eye on the amount of face-time the two of you get during the postseason and that can lead to some lonely nights. Luckily, sportsbooks give us some extra props to bet on during Lord Stanley’s playoffs to increase that level of action we’re getting (pun incredibly intended).

Bovada created a list of OVER/UNDER props for your pleasure and I’ve picked a few of them out to take a closer look at.

I see your point

A Stanley Cup win is obviously about more than individual success but it’s been proven over and over again that a player getting hot at the right time can help propel a team to the pinnacle of the National Hockey League mountain.

Last season, it was Logan Couture. He poured in an incredible 30 points to lead all skaters during the Sharks’ run all the way to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals while his teammate Joe Pavelski paced the field in goals with 14.

Both of those numbers, however, were fairly high. The average number of points the leading point-getter has earned since the league resumed play after the 2004-05 lockout is 26.45 while the average number of goals the leading goal scorer has earned since then is 12.7. 

I don’t see many sweeps happening in the first round of a 2017 playoff bracket I’m projecting to be extremely competitive. I think this competition leads to extra games and – you guessed it – more points and goals.

San Jose and Pittsburgh both played 24 games during their 2016 conquests and I could see that number increasing this year.
