Roope Hintz has hit his shot prop over in 5/L7 and gets the Vegas Golden Knights who allow the second most shots against of teams left in the playoffs.
As the NHL playoffs heat up, the Dallas Stars' Roope Hintz has been turning heads with his impressive performances on the ice. The Finnish forward has been a key factor in the Stars' playoff success, and I'm here to tell you why I'm confident he'll surpass the 2.5 shots on goal line in tonight's game against the Vegas Golden Knights.
First, let's look at the numbers. Hintz is averaging 2.6 shots on goal this season, with a slightly higher average of 2.79 when playing on the road. He has also been on fire in recent games, with an average of 3.3 shots on goal over his last 10 games, hitting the over 2.5 shots on goal in six of those games. That trend continues when looking at his last five games, where he has averaged 3.2 shots on goal and hit the over in three of those matchups.
Roope has hit his over in 5 of the last 7 games and the two misses were big wins against Seattle where he let his foot off the gas. They won't be dominating VGK like that so his shot prop over is very safe tonight.
**Roope Hintz over 2.5 shots on goal**
The recent uptick in Hintz's shots on goal is a promising sign for those looking to bet the over in tonight's game. Not only has he been more aggressive with his shot attempts, but he has also been more accurate, leading to better overall performance on the ice. In fact, in two games against Vegas this season, Hintz has averaged a staggering 4.5 shots on goal, further solidifying the argument that he'll hit the over tonight.
But it's not just Hintz's individual performance that should have bettors eyeing the over. The Vegas Golden Knights' defensive play in the playoffs has been somewhat porous, allowing an average of 32 shots per game. That figure is the second-highest of all remaining teams in the playoffs, giving Hintz and the rest of the Stars ample opportunity to pepper the Vegas net with shots. With the Golden Knights struggling to contain opposing offenses, there's a good chance Hintz will find himself in prime position to fire off multiple shots on goal.
Furthermore, the Stars have been leaning on their offensive firepower throughout the playoffs, with Hintz ranking as the postseason's second-leading scorer. With the team's success largely hinging on their ability to generate offense, it's likely that Dallas will continue to feed the hot hand in Hintz, giving him plenty of chances to shoot the puck and rack up shots on goal.
Despite Vegas being a formidable opponent, it's hard to ignore the combination of Hintz's recent success and the Golden Knights' defensive struggles. With the Stars looking to advance to the next round of the playoffs, expect Hintz to play a significant role in the team's offense and continue his upward trend in shots on goal.
To sum it all up, Roope Hintz is a solid bet to hit the over in shots on goal tonight against the Vegas Golden Knights. His recent performance, combined with Vegas' struggles on defense, creates a perfect storm for Hintz to light up the stat sheet and help propel the Stars to a crucial playoff victory.
So, if you're looking for a savvy bet in tonight's NHL action, keep an eye on Roope Hintz and his shots on goal. There's a good chance he'll exceed the 2.5 line, making for a thrilling showdown between the Stars and the Golden Knights.
