Props for match 2 of the Stanley Cup final between Lightning and Avalanche

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final kicks off on Saturday night and we scanned the board to find some props that are worth a look.

Choosing mostly games with plus money, here’s what I see as we prepare for the action of the ice.

Goal of Nathan McKinnon (+140 CZR)

We bet on MacKinnon’s shots in Game 1 and he gave 5. I’d like to get back to him, but his chances are a little out of control. We focus on his neck rest, something he failed to do in match 1.

Although he could not find the back of the net, the blows were there: McKinnon made 13 attempts. He had an assist and was a threat in the power game. I think the shots will be saved and at +140 I jump on the star of Avalanche to bury his 12th goal of this post-season cycle.

Again, over 4.5 strokes is a great bet. He achieved it in four consecutive games and six of eight at home this postseason. The price of -145 for betting is what scares me from it.

Cheers for the goal.

Mikhail Sergachev point (+174 FD)

I bet on this last game behind the scenes and it came true, and now we are taking it out of the shadows in the hope that success will remain.

If you can find Sergachev’s shots on goal at 1.5, that’s the bet I’d like to make. He has 2+ shots in five of his last six and 3+ shots in three straight and four out of six.

Against Colorado this season, the Bolts’ defenders have shot a total of three and six in the regular season and three since Game 1.

Without the set blows at our disposal, we follow this volume with the hope of a point. He scored in Match 1 and now has four points in his last three games. As we will mention in our next bet, Avalanche gave defenders opportunities this postseason.

Getting puck in the net is a great way to generate points, whether it’s a goal, an insert or a rebound. At +174 I find this a great value.

Victor Hedman over 2.5 SOG (-125 DK)

As mentioned, I still like the defenders against Colorado, although Hedman finished with only two SOGs in the Game 1 statistics.

We return to him because we were unjustly robbed, he had a third knock on the door. I saw it with my own eyes and it was never recorded.

We trust the bounces throughout the season and I’m not stopping now, I believe in this initial reading. Headman fired seven attempts in the last game, so we certainly have the volume we want to see. After a game in the series, I like Tampa to collect more shots than on Wednesday.

Valery Nichushkin 4+ hits (+136 FD)

Hint advice to my follower for showing me Nichushkin’s photos, you know who you are. Nichushkin’s volume was seriously impressive.

He finished Game 1 with six SOGs (and one goal), making his final appearance for the seventh time this postseason, when he recorded four or more hits on the net.

In two games against Lightning this season, Nichushkin has a total of 13 shots in 20 attempts, an elite volume that we must follow.

Avalanche received 38 shots in Game 1, which is in line with their average post-season level. I expect a similar level of production again in this one, so we’re going up Nichushkin’s plus money for a whole unit. He was much more stable at home in these playoffs, finishing with three or more shots in 88% of matches and reaching 4+ in 50%.

Good luck in Game 2, let’s win some NHL bets!
