The 2023 Western Conference Finals got off to the same start as the Eastern Conference Finals – with a 2-0 lead. Vegas was able to win each of the first two matchups on home ice; in fact, both were also overtime wins. Now the series shifts to Dallas, where Jason Robertson and company will be looking to get their first win. The Stars have been a solid home team, so a 2-2 series heading back to Vegas wouldn't be a shock. However, given how we've already seen 2 o vertime games, predicting a winner may not be your preferred approach. With that in mind, we have our top NHL player prop for tonight's Game 3.'

Jamie Benn over 0.5 points (-140)
When it comes to the Stars, it's primarily Jason Robertson that gets most of the headlines. He's come through for us countless times over the last 2 seasons; however, we're focused on Dallas' actual captain, Jamie Benn. After a slow year last season, the 33-year-old had a true resurgence in 2022-23. Benn had the 2nd-most points on the team with 78 and has come up clutch several times in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs alone.'
A perfect example of that was in Game 1 of this series. Been had the game-tying the goal that sent things into overtime. The captain has also proven to be a great balance of goals and assists, with 33 and 45 this season, respectively. In other words, we're getting great value on his overall point prop. That's amplified even more so with Game 3 being on home ice for him. We can also look back on how Benn performed against Vegas in the regular season; he had 3 points in 3 games against them. With the Stars needing this win more than ever, our top NHL player prop is on Jamie Benn to record a point.
