There are six NHL games this Sunday, and it’s a tremendous slate if you’re a fan of Shots on Goal (SOG) props.
Many of the teams hitting the ice Sunday are generous to shots from the opposition, and as such, I’ve loaded up a nice roster of SOG plays for the day.
There are three games in particular I’ll be focusing in on. Consider doing your own research after reading. I like these teams for shots, but there are a handful of players available to you.
All odds are available on DraftKings at time of publish.
New York Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Anthony Beauvillier over 2.5 (+130)
Beauvillier has hit his SOG in three straight games and is better on the road, where he has hit in five of six games.
Philadelphia is a great target for shots, allowing 32.6 shots per game at home in their last 10, a number that is rising to 36.8 in their past five.
The Flyers are also letting up the fourth-most shots per game to right wingers this season, Beauvillier’s position.
Love these odds.
Cam Atkinson over 2.5 (-155)
Atkinson has turned it back on after a quiet stretch of games. He has now covered his SOG in eight of his last nine games, and five of six at home.
In the last two games against the Islanders, Atkinson has six and three shots on goal.
The Isles allow 33.3 shots per game on the road in their last 10 contests, and of the three forward positions, they’ve struggled slowing down shots from the RW, where Atkinson presides.
Arizona Coyotes vs. San Jose Sharks
Erik Karlsson over 2.5 (-105)
I shared this on Twitter already, but this is a simple plug-and-play betting approach for me every game Arizona hits the ice.
The Coyotes cannot stop shots from defensemen, allowing the most per game.
I prefer Karlsson, who has hit his SOG more frequently than fellow defensemen Brent Burns.
Winnipeg Jets vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Kyle Connor over 3.5 (-160)
I’m definitely looking to target a Chicago team that is letting up 34.1 shots per game at home in its last 10.
Sometimes, the juice is worth the squeeze, and there are just too many signs pointing to Kyle Connor being the best bet here on the Winnipeg side.
For starters, he’s put up 11 shots on goal in two previous meetings with Chicago this season.
Then there’s the fact that the Blackhawks are allowing the fifth-most shots per game to left wingers, by far the position they are most vulnerable to.
And then it’s Connor’s production that puts it over the edge. On the road, Connor has hit his SOG in 15 of his last 21 on the road, including four of five.
Feel free to parlay this, but I want it by itself and am not scared of a bit of juiced odds.
Alex DeBrincat over 3.5 (+100)
DeBrincat has been awesome against this prop all season, and I will gladly take him at even-money after two down games.
DeBrincat is even better at home, covering 3.5 in seven of his last nine, and with the Jets allowing 35.1 shots per game on the road in their last 10, it’s a great spot.
Enjoy the day of hockey!
