Best player prop bets for Wednesday’s NHL Playoffs slate: Eberle leads the Islanders to a series win

Jun 5, 2021; Uniondale, New York, USA; Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy (73) controls the puck against New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal (13) and New York Islanders right wing Jordan Eberle (7) during the first period in game four of the second round of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

We’ve only have a one-game slate for Wednesday’s NHL card, so we will be looking to find one player for each team that presents some value. Right now, we’re going to be focusing on NHL player props, bringing you a few of our favorite props. Before you bet these, make sure you also check out our picks on the side and total for every game.

David Pastrnak Over 1 Point (-102)

Starting with the away team here, the Boston Bruins will be trying to avoid elimination for the first time this season. They failed to capitalize in a Game 5 at home and now must keep the series alive on the road. One of the players who has had a crucial impact in this series is David Pastrnak. We have backed him in a few of the games this series and he just continues to deliver.

Tonight will be no different, as we are going to look for Pastrnak to provide some more offense. He had an impressive three points in Game 5, bringing his point total to eight for the series. Pastrnak has recorded multiple points in two of the five games played and has only failed to record a point in one game this series. He is an important part of what Boston is trying to do and the Islanders do not seem to have much of an answer for him. For that reason, backing Pastrnak to have at least one point will be our play.

Jordan Eberle Over 2 Shots on Goal (-148)

On the other side of this game is the New York Islanders. A win in Game 5 win puts them in the drivers seat and they will do everything they can to avoid the dreaded Game 7 in Boston. Tonight we are going to back Jordan Eberle to have over two shots on goal. He is averaging 3.4 shots on goal in the series and has cashed this prop in consecutive games. The one game he did not cash was actually a push, so he has failed to deliver less than two shots on goal in any game this series. Both teams have been highly aggressive, at least in terms of shooting often. Asking Eberle to find at the very least two shots on goal is more than reasonable, making this prop our play tonight.
