What Picks Catch Our Eye?

That’s the best question. Again, that 2-3-4 parlay on FanDuel is simple but likely effective. Barring a trade, the fifth pick is maybe the first time we see a reach. Naturally, all it takes is one unexpected move to change a top ten. 

Matvei Michkov is an exciting gamble at the fifth slot. DraftKings and Unibet carry him at +275, while FanDuel (+240) and a few other sites saw his number shorten. This is about finding good numbers and being picky. Yes, the NHL Draft is not something to throw a whole bunch of money on. 

What else are spots to consider? The selections for players versus the field are too tilted to attempt. However, Vegas is the one potential landing spot for a goaltender (Michael Hrabal) at 32. The Under 32.5 at -135 is not as appetizing as some other wagers, but it is possible. 

Oliver Moore at Over 14.5 (-115) is another consideration. Unibet and FanDuel had differing options at less appealing numbers. Callum Ritchie is EVEN to go Under 22.5, and a few teams in the Top 20 were even eyeing him. David Reinbacher could go as high as fifth or sixth. At +115 on DraftKings, he may be worth a $1 or $2 wager. 

A Final Note Or Two

The best advice is to check some props and parlay odds several times between now and Wednesday night. Doing a little extra homework can save a few dollars here and there. As we said, there are other hockey wagers to bet on for the hockey bettor. 

NHL Award Futures are already out for next year. However, that is for another time. Good luck!
