The Florida Panthers Stanley Cup hopes will officially be on life support if they’re not able to win tonight’s Game 3 against the Vegas Golden Knights.
But, the good news for them is that a playoff series doesn’t truly begin until a road team wins a game. So, if they win game 3 at home tonight, their still very much alive in this series.
In this article, I’m going to focus on some player props for the Panthers. If you want your team to win, you’re going to need to following players to step up.
Let’s dive into them.
Panthers NHL prop bets for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final
- Sam Bennett OVER 3.5 shots on goal
- Matt Tkachuk to score a goal
Sam Bennett OVER 3.5 shots on goal
I still don’t understand why sportsbooks are setting the OVER on this prop bet at plus-money. Sam Bennett is averaging 3.65 shots per game in the postseason and his offensive production has increased even further lately.
He’s averaging 4.4 shots over his last five games, while averaging 24.4 shifts per game over that same stretch.
I made this same bet in Game 2 and Bennett recorded four shots on goal. I see no reason to not take the same bet again tonight.
Matt Tkachuk to score a goal
Matt Tkachuk has continuously found ways to find the back of the net when his team needs him the most. Well, at the danger of falling down 0-3 to the Golden Knights, they need him now more than ever.
He has scored 10 times in 18 postseason games and I’m willing to bet on him finding the net an 11th time tonight.
