The Toronto Maple Leafs (-135) host the Tampa Bay Lightning at Scotiabank Arena for Game 2 of their first-round series Wednesday - and Toronto winger Mitch Marner has several player props at various sportsbooks available for bettors.
Marner scored a goal and added two assists during Monday’s 5-0 win, and the Maple Leafs are now -205 favorites to win the series against Tampa Bay at FanDuel Sportsbook.
The 24-year-old winger recorded a career-high 35 goals and 97 points during the regular season, and his 3.87 points per 60 minutes ranked 13th in the league.
In Game 1, Marner attempted five shots, including two of the high-danger variety. He was also on the ice for 10 high-danger scoring chances, which tied with defenseman Morgan Rielly for most on the team.
Additionally, Marner is currently at +2500 to win the Conn Smythe Trophy at DraftKings Sportsbook, and the Maple Leafs are listed at +700 to win the Stanley Cup at the book.
Here’s a quick peek at Marner’s player prop totals at DraftKings, FanDuel, and Caesars Sportsbooks.

While Toronto’s statement win in Game 1 was impressive, Tampa Bay’s gone 14-0 following a postseason loss the past two years.
Better yet, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy boasts an elite .951 save percentage and 1.20 GAA in those 14 contests.
Still, bookmakers are listing the Maple Leafs as a modest-sized favorite, and the returns on Marner’s props aren’t huge.
Finally, it’s also worth noting that Marner is a healthy +3500 to score a hat trick against the Lightning in Game 2 at Caesars Sportsbook. He recorded his first career three-goal game this season in a 10-6 win over the Detroit Red Wings on February 26.
