Pick #1 William Karlsson Over 0.5 Points
Following an overtime loss in Game 3, the Golden Knights are likely to respond in a big way Saturday. After all, there’s only been one instance all postseason in which Vegas hasn’t followed up a loss with a victory. That’s part of the reason we like targeting one of their top players in the NHL player props.
William Karlsson has had a fairly quiet Stanley Cup Final so far (two assists), but it’s only a matter of time before he makes his mark on this series. The 30-year-old is among the league leaders with 10 goals and 15 points in 20 postseason contests this spring.
FanDuel is offering +100 odds (50% implied chance) for Karlsson to record at least one point Saturday. That’s pretty strong value considering the ex-Blue Jacket is almost at a point-per-game pace this postseason. Furthermore, he’s generated seven individual scoring chances in the Final, according to advanced analytics.
Karlsson has been getting his chances, and his line with Reilly Smith and Michael Amadio has been Vegas’ best possession line through three contests (56 CF%). It’s always a challenge playing on the road, but half of Karlsson’s 10 goals this postseason have come away from T-Mobile Arena.
Pick: William Karlsson Over 0.5 Points (+100)
Pick #2: Sam Bennett Over 3.5 Shots on Goal
While our model has Golden Knights vs Panthers Game 4 going in favor of the visitors, it still projects Florida to fill the back of the net at least three times. One of the best player props based on the analytics and trends is the “over” on Sam Bennett’s shots on goal.
Bennett has been a beast for Florida so far in the Cup Final, recording a team-high 25 shot attempts and generating 12 individual scoring chances (also a team high). Bennett’s shots on goal player prop for Game 4 is only set at 3.5, which is a number he’s surpassed in three of his past four outings.
"It was pretty incredible… That was one of the best crowds I've ever played in front of. It was a lot of fun last night."
— NHL Network (@NHLNetwork) June 9, 2023
Vegas has been the best team on paper through the first three games, but Bennett’s line with Matthew Tkachuk has been tough to handle. The Benett-Tkachuk-Cousins trio have a 57.78 CF% at 5-on-5, meaning they are generating substantially more scoring chances than the lines they are matched up against.
Bennett has recorded 66 shots on goal in 18 playoff games this season, which puts him at a 3.67 shots per game average. With Florida facing another virtual must-win situation and Bennett seeing top minutes alongside Tkachuk (both EV & PP), we recommend targeting the “over” on his SOG prop.
Pick: Sam Bennett Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (-102)
