Predators vs. Panthers: The best player prop bets for Feb. 22
The Florida Panthers will put their nine-game home winning streak and league-leading 23-3-0 home ice record on the line tonight when they host the Nashville Predators.
It’s been an historic season for the Panthers, who recently set a new franchise record for most wins in their first 50 games (35-10-5). Florida has been getting contributions up and down its roster and confidence is high, which makes wagering on player props with this team an exciting - and potentially lucrative - experience.
The Predators, meanwhile, come into tonight's game on the back of a four-game losing streak, and have been outscored 18-9 during that span. The Preds will be looking to turn things around and carry some much needed momentum into this weekend's NHL Stadium Series game against Tampa Bay.

Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET, and we have the three best player prop bets below.
ALEKSANDER BARKOV TO SCORE A GOAL
With six goals in his last nine games, Florida’s Aleksander Barkov has had no trouble finding the back of the net lately.

A well-rounded centerman in all aspects of the game, last year’s Frank J. Selke Trophy winner has 45 points (23G, 22A) in 37 games this season. It’s his goal scoring efficiency (19%) that really scares most teams, as he scores a goal for roughly every five shots he gets on net. A force to be reckoned with every night, we always like wagering on a "Sasha" Barkov anytime goal.
PICK: BARKOV ANYTIME GOAL (+106)
FILIP FORSBERG TO SCORE A GOAL
With a goal in his last game and three total in his last five, Filip Forsberg will look to strike again to give the Preds a fighting chance against the favored Panthers. Similar to Barkov, Forsberg is a highly dangerous shooter who has an even better 22.5% shooting percentage, placing him sixth overall in the league.

Averaging four shots on goal over his last five games and netting three, the All-Star left winger is Smashville’s best threat to spoil Florida’s party.
PICK: FORESBERG ANYTIME GOAL (+132)
