This may be my favorite NHL slate of the year so far. There are several terrific players in great matchups, but with that came some guys graduating to the dreaded 1.5 point line. I am gonna switch it up today with this article. We have several of the top goal scorers in the league in great spots and I want to take advantage of that. I will offer two plays, both of which I will play straight and then parlay them for a smaller wager.
@RyanPropz NHL Goal Scorer Picks & Parlay - 3/27
Buffalo Sabres (23-33-9) @ New York Rangers (41-19-5)
Our first goal scorer will be Chris Kreider of the Rangers. Chris is 3rd in the NHL with 44 goals. He has scored in 54% of games this season. That number jumps to 63% in home games, where he has 24 goals in 30 games. He has scored in 6 of his last 10 overall and 7 of his last 10 at home. As for Buffalo, they are expected to have Craig Anderson man the net for tonight’s game. The 40 year old goaltender has struggled on the road often this season. He has allowed 3.55 goals per game in road starts, and has seen a small uptick to 3.57 since the All Star break. The defense in front of him is not the strongest either, as Buffalo is 26th in goals allowed. I love getting Chris at plus odds to score here.
Arizona Coyotes (20-40-4) @ Winnipeg Jets (31-25-10)
Our second goal scorer will be Kyle Connor of the Jets. Kyle is 5th in the league in goals with 41. He has a goal in 55% of his games and 52% at home. He has been feeling it lately with a goal in 8 of his last 10 games. He finds himself in a great matchup with the Coyotes. Arizona is 28th in the league in goals allowed. They are expected to start Karel Vejmelka in net today. His numbers are actually a bit stronger on the road, but nowhere near enough to scare me away from Kyle today. Karel is 47th out of the 50 qualifying goal tenders in goals against at 3.39 per game. This is a great spot for Kyle to chase Leon Draisaitl in hopes to lead the league in goals.
