Also be sure to scour as many sportsbooks as possible before placing a bet as the odds tend to vary a little in most circumstances.

*All odds below have been obtained from DraftKings Sportsbook and are accurate as of the time of writing*
Nikolaj Ehlers – O 2.5 Shots on Goal (-125) – 0.5 Units
Ehlers has slowed down over his last two games with only one shot apiece in each. However, prior to that he had three or more shots on goal in six straight games. Look for him to resume his streak again in a game where Winnipeg is a -142 road favorite. Part of the low total here is due to strong goaltending all around and not as much of a reflection of the anticipated number of shots on goal.
New York Islanders/Tampa Bay – U 6.5 Points (-112) – 1 Unit
Despite the coaching change, the Islanders are still struggling to put up goals with 2.58 GF/60. I’m surprised to see the total not set at 6 even here. Let’s grab the U 6.5 before that can even happen. They are likely premising this on the backup goaltender being in for Tampa but it’s not like we’ve seen prime Vasilevskiy this season. The Lightning’s defensive play has still been some of the best in the league. Being well rested all the Islanders probably win here and do it in the fashion they know best.
Jonathan Marchessault – U 3.5 Shots on Goal (-166) – 0.5 Unit
I hate such short odds, but Marchessault has only went over this mark twice in his last eight games. This should be a relatively slow puck control-oriented game and he likely falls short of 4+ SOG tonight.
