I love the value on Dylan Cozens of Buffalo to find the back of the net tonight. Edmonton was a great team to consider targeting for shots from centers last season, and Cozens has been shooting as the third-line center for the Sabres.
It's been two games, but Cozens has three SOG in each, tallying a solid ten shot attempts. He scored twice in a game against the Oilers last season, and as the highest over/under of the day at 7, this is a great game to hunt for a goal scorer.
Edmonton allowed centers JT Miller and Elias Petersson to score in their first game and centers Mikael Backlund and Nazem Kadri both scored against them on Saturday. Yes, your math is correct, that’s two centers per game scoring against the Oilers this season.
This targeted approach applies to Tage Thompson and Casey Mittelstadt too, but I love the +400 and the shots I'm seeing from Cozens.
Betting .5u: Dylan Cozens goal (+400 DK)
