Bet $10, Win $200 if Either Team Scores a Goal >>

Alexander Kerfoot Anytime Scorer (+250)

We have an Atlantic Division tilt as the second-place Toronto Maple Leafs host the sixth-place Detroit Red Wings in what is suspected to be a high-scoring blowout. Currently, Toronto is almost a five-dollar favorite on the moneyline, with the total sitting at seven.

These odds are fair as the Red Wings bleed goals and Toronto scores at will, and I would not be surprised if Toronto puts up seven by themselves. With Michael Bunting out of the lineup with an undisclosed injury, Alexander Kerfoot slides into the dangerous first power-play unit.

Toronto ranks first in the league in power-play percentage this season, while the Red Wings rank just 31st in penalty kill percentage. Skating alongside Matthews and Marner, Kerfoot should get plenty of opportunities on special teams to bury a goal once again against Detroit, a team he has scored on once before this season.

Nikita Kucherov Anytime Scorer (+120)

The Atlantic Division’s third-place Tampa Bay Lightning host the Metropolitan Division’s sixth-place Columbus Blue Jackets as almost four-dollar favorites on the moneyline. Those who have been following these articles know that this has been my favorite prop for the past few weeks, and it has been a cash machine.

If oddsmakers keep giving us plus money on Kucherov, we will keep playing it every single day. Kucherov has been on fire in April as he has scored 12 goals over his last 12 games.

He will have a great opportunity to keep It going against the Blue Jackets as they now rank dead-last in the league this season in five-on-five expected goals against per 60 minutes (xGA). As the primary triggerman on the first power-play unit, Kucherov should get some good looks against a team that ranks just 20th in the league in penalty kill percentage.

Kevin Fiala Anytime Scorer (+140)

We have a Central Division showdown as the second-place Minnesota Wild host the eighth-place Arizona Coyotes in what is suspected to be a high-scoring blowout as the Wild are six-dollar favorites on the moneyline, and the total sits at 6.5 with the juice on the over. Oddsmakers still have not caught up enough with the Fiala prop as he has exploded for 10 goals over his last 10 games.

This game is an excellent spot for Fiala to keep It rolling, which is exactly what he will want to do as the season winds down. Fiala bet on himself in the offseason by signing a one-year deal for $5.1 million instead of locking up long-term, which now appears to be the right move as his play continues to skyrocket.

It is no secret that Arizona is the worst team in hockey, and Minnesota should be able to score at least five on them in this game which means Fiala will have a good opportunity to grab at least one of those. Arizona has now surrendered at least five goals to their opponent in eight of their last 10 games.

Best of luck!
