Friday's NHL prop bet pick is all about Kevin Hayes, a Flyer who excels after losses – PointsBet has best odds
When Kevin Hayes – one of the Flyers’ best shorthanded players – picked up a penalty with 2:01 remaining and a 3-2 lead against the Bruins Tuesday night, we immediately knew three things:
The Bruins were going to tie the game, which they did on David Pastrnak’s third goal of the game just 15 seconds before the regulation buzzer;
That we would be all-in on Hayes for the next game, a rematch with the Bruins Friday night;
We are done with those dastardly first- and last-goal bets that we never seem to cash! Like the first-TD wagers we hit on frequently with the Eagles’ Dallas Goedert two seasons ago, the well as seemingly dried up. So we move on and will instead tip our toe into some assists and points wagers when we bet NHL players.
Back to Hayes. Since Dec. 29, 2019, he has scored a goal in a game following a loss nine times. That’s a sign of an athlete that has his eye on the ball and amps it up yet another level when the going gets tough.
With a huge national-TV matchup with the Capitals brewing on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon, Philly can not afford to stumble again against the Bruins, the third team causing a log-jam at the top of the East Division.
Kevin Hayes will see to that.
PointsBet had the best Hayes numbers for most of our wagers, with a sprinkling of DraftKings, William Hill and BetMGM thrown in.
