Read our Avalache vs. Lightning betting preview for game 4.

Steven Stamkos – Anytime Scorer (+150)

Stamkos’s Goals Prop is listed at Over 0.5 with juice of -200. The Anytime Goal Scorer prop is at plus- money and offers better value for the guy who is arguably Tampa Bay’s best player.

Stamkos leads all Lightning players with nine shots on goal in the series. He has a career shooting percentage of 17 percent but is at 11 percent in the finals.

The Lightning captain scored goals in Game 4 of the series with Toronto and in the series with the New York Rangers. He’s due and playing in front of the home crowd Stamkos comes through.

Alex Killorn – Over 0.5 Points (+125)

Killorn plays on the Lightning’s second line. In Game 3, Killorn ended up playing the second-most minutes at 5-on-5 of all Tampa Bay players.

Killorn is a 25-goal scorer that can find the net. He also had 34 assists during the regular season. He has four assists in 20 games this postseason, but his expected goals-for rating is 51.1 percent in the postseason.

With Nikita Kucherov potentially out, Killorn could again get plenty of ice time. That will give him ample opportunity to score a point.

J.T. Compher – Over 0.5 Points (+150)

Compher isn’t as well-known as some of his Avalanche teammates, but the guy is valuable. In Game 3, it was Compher that registered five shots on goal.

With Nazem Kadri out of the lineup, Compher has taken over the center spot on the Avs second line. Playing alongside Mikko Rantanen will give the 27-year-old forward plenty of chances to score.

Plus, Compher plays on the Avs’ NHL-best power play unit. With Andre Burakovsky out of the lineup too, Compher’s props value is on the rise.

Nathan MacKinnon – Over 4.5 Shots (-130)

MacKinnon scored a point in both Games 1 and 2 but was shutout in Game 3. He did take six shots though, which gives MacKinnon 96 for the postseason.

He’s averaging 5.65 shots per game in the playoffs, which is well above tonight’s Shots Prop. In his last six games, MacKinnon has taken 37 shots, an average of over six per game.

Only once in those six games did MacKinnon fail to reach 4.5 shots. That was in Game 2. Colorado will put the pressure on to try and go back home with a 3-1 series lead. Even a below-average MacKinnon hits this prop tonight.
