Below, we will go over our two-player props of the day, which include some of the top players in all of the NHL.

Best NHL Player Props Bets Today (May 17): Cale Makar Goalscorer(205)

Cale Makar has made us a boatload of money throughout the NHL season and there’s truly no reason to bet against him after the first-round performance that he had. He ended up with 10 points in just four games for the Colorado Avalanche and was able to put three in the back of the net by himself. Considering that he’s not somebody who does score a ton of goals, and more so gets assists, we’re going to be able to get some great odds here.

If Makar can repeat his first-round performance against a tough St. Louis Blues team, we’re going to continue betting on him until he fails us.

Take Makar over 0.5 goals.

Best NHL Player Props Bets Today (May 17): Aaron Ekblad Over 0.5 Points (-140)

Aaron Ekblad had been one of the top players throughout the regular season and continued his dominance in the first round for the Florida Panthers. He finished the first round with five points and the regular season with 57.

With him getting good odds here to have a point and the Florida Panthers being in a dogfight series against a tough Tampa Bay Lightning team, let’s go with him to help his Panthers team walk away with a victory in game 1 and have a point.

This series between Florida and Tampa Bay is going to be the best of the second round, which means Ekblad has to step up.

Take Ekblad over 0.5 points.
