The Edmonton Oilers face elimination for the third-straight game this Friday, 8 p.m., with C Connor McDavid carrying the hope of an entire country on his stick. Those who know the game are bullish on his Game 6 NHL prop bets. 

He’s been nothing short of magnificent so far. Playoff scoring records, once thought unbreakable, are being broken.

Will 97 deliver another epic performance for the raucous Rogers Place crowd?

Here are three McDavid prop bets worth taking.

McDavid Assists Over 1.5 +145

McDavid is now the record-holder for assists in a single postseason. He passed the 1988 high-water mark of 31 set by Wayne Gretzky.

The current Edmonton great also tallied 42 total points during the 2024 postseason, well within striking distance of the Great One’s 1985 47-point record. Connor will likely pass the Pittsburgh Penguins great Mario Lemieux’s 1991 total of 44.

McDavid exceeded 1.5 assists in nine games this postseason. With the Oilers’ power play returning to form (three PP goals in Games 4 and 5), another multiple-helper game is a solid bet.

McDavid Over 3.5 Shots -110

McDavid went over this total in only 11 of 23 games these playoffs, but I expect a lot of Oilers shots in Game 6. 

In Games 4 and 5, Florida G Sergei Bobrovsky looked like Ivan Drago at the end of the Rocky IV.

Yes, the Russian is cut.

After allowing only four goals through the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final, the former Conn Smythe favorite let in a whopping nine in Game 4 and 5 on a combined total of 39 shots.

Edmonton will pressure a leaky Bob early and often. 

Connor McDavid First Goal +1000

Rogers Place will be rocking and rolling before the opening faceoff. Bobrovsky looks rattled. The Florida Panthers look exhausted after three-plus rounds of violent hockey. 

Edmonton carries the momentum, but the Panthers still have the upper hand in the series. Scoring the first goal will heap pressure on the Cats and prevent them from playing their preferred game. 

The Oilers have plenty of offensive talent capable of scoring the first goal, but 10 to 1 on the best player on the biggest stage is too good a number. 

Connor McDavid Game 6 NHL Prop Bets and Great Promos

Connor McDavid is on fire and is playing at a level of dominance we hockey fans haven’t seen since the early 1990s. With eight points in two Stanley Cup Final elimination games, it’s hard not to be bullish on the Edmonton superstar. 

Do you think McDavid will shine in Game 6 this Friday?
