NHL Player Props Picks & Betting Odds - Who will take home the MVP Award?

The National Hockey League is really starting to hot up with some great games and fantastic performances so far. But who are the players are standing out, who are a cut above the rest, and who will take home some silverware at the end of the season? Here are some NHL player prop bets & picks for 2021…


The Edmonton Oilers star man Connor McDavid is the current favorite in the online sportsbook’s NHL MVP odds. All the Vegas sportsbooks are in agreement that the 24-year old Canadian superstar is the most likely player to take home the prestigious Hart Trophy.

MVP Award Betting Odds

Here are the latest NHL MVP odds according to the Bovada Sportsbook.

  • Connor McDavid +250
  • Nathan MacKinnon +500
  • Artemi Panarin +1000
  • Auston Matthews +1000

Now in his 6th NHL season all with Edmonton, McDavid has always been their best player scoring 34 goals and 63 assists last year. The year prior he did even better netting 41 times with 75 assists.

While McDavid is the strong favorite in the NHL betting odds it’s no forgone conclusion with Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon, New York Rangers Artemi Panarin  and Toronto’s Auston Matthews up there in the mix. But if McDavid plays to his usual standard with his consistently awesome trademark plays he looks the one to bet on for MVP honors.

Bovada’s NHL odds of +250 (or 3.50 in decimal) on McDavid looks worthy of an interest bet.

Top NHL Goalscorer Odds

This particular betting market asks you to predict who will be the leading goalscorer in the NHL this season. While Connor McDavid is clear favourite to win the MVP award he’s not as fancied to collect the Maurice Rocket Richard Trophy which is given to the top scorer.

The favourite to win this award is the Toronto Maple Leaf’s goal machine Auston Matthews at odds of +170 (2.70) with Bovada. He ended last season with a tally of 47, narrowly missing out by one goal, but he looks a solid bet to win it this year.
