Sidney Crosby 500th goal special

The Pittsburgh Penguins return to play after the All-Star Break on Feb. 8 against Boston.

On the DraftKings sportsbook app, under the “NHL” tab on “trending top picks” you’ll find “Crosby 500th Goal Special” which is where you can bet on which team Sidney Crosby will score his 500th regular-season goal. Crosby currently has 498 goals.

  • New Jersey Devils +280
  • Philadelphia Flyers +425
  • Ottawa Senators +475
  • Toronto Maple Leafs +600
  • Carolina Hurricanes +750
  • Any other team +800
  • Boston Bruins +950
  • New York Rangers +1300
  • Columbus Blue Jackets +1800
  • Does not score 500th goal during the regular season +5000

Here is the upcoming Penguins schedule to give an idea of when Crosby might notch his 500th goal.

DraftKings started offering the Crosby prop on Jan. 31, and since then, 25% of the money went to the Feb. 1 Washington Capitals game as the date Crosby would score his 500th goal.

According to a representative from DraftKings, the next game receiving the highest handle (22%) is when the Penguins host the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 15,  followed by their Feb. 10 game in Ottawa (19%).
