Golden Knights vs Oilers Game 6 Player Props
1. Jack Eichel - Shots on Goal: Over 3.5 (-104)
Jack Eichel has been the man Edmonton has been trying to slow down for the entire series, but he has overcome whatever strategy the opponent has thrown at him so far. The 26-year-old has stayed ready and willing to shoot the puck as he has tallied a total of 22 shots across the five games (4.4 average). He has logged at least 4 shots in four of those five games as well. Eichel ranks second on the team with 39 shots in the postseason and knows that another big performance could lead to a Western Conference Finals berth. Back him to step up.
2. Evan Bouchard - Assists: Over 0.5 (-134)
The Oilers offense has not been the issue in this series as it's a unit that is averaging a reliable 3.4 goals per game, which is the same exact mark as the Knights' offense. Evan Bouchard's ability to put his teammates in position to score has been a big part of that success. The Canadian has tallied at least 1 assist in three of the five games during this series (5 total assists). Bouchard now leads the team in postseason assists (13) as he is surrounded by incredible playmakers like Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Trust Bouchard to keep building momentum on Sunday.
3. Connor McDavid - Any Time Goal Scorer (-105)
Speaking of Connor McDavid, the Oiler's star is a great option to back as an any time goal scorer tonight. The 26-year-old has finished the regular season with a team-best 64 goals in 82 games and has seen that success follow him to the postseason, too. McDavid currently ranks second on Edmonton with 7 goals in 11 playoff games and has found the back of the net four times during this series. The Oilers' backs are against the wall in a win-or-go-home contest, which is the kind of situation McDavid thrives in. Sprinkling a small wager on 2+ goals at +490 odds is also worth a shot here.
