NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Picks

Slate Summary

After a poor performance from the Aves, they are in a bounce back spot against the Sabres. MacKinnon put up 5 shots in their loss and provides a safe floor. There are a ton of elite spend ups but will be prioritizing Nate on DraftKings for 9.2k.

A good opportunity to buy low on Markstrom. He looks like a completely different goalie compared to last season but he faces a bottom 10 team in offense against the Habs. This is exactly what he needs in order to find his form and bounce back.

For DK, the goalie to target is Jordan Binnington for 7.1k. One of the best value plays as the Hurricanes are top 3 in shots on net but bottom 3 in goals per game. This would favor rostering Binner on DraftKings due to the 35+ save bonus.

There are 3 mid tier options on FanDuel that stand out. Reinart, Huberdeau and Arvidsson are all in the low 5k who all play on the top 6 unit and power play unit.

The Dallas Stars are tied for first tonight with an implied team total of 4.37. This is a good way to target players and our Crunch model likes Pavelski and Seguin. Providing great value to roster MacKinnon and Kaprizov who is the last core play.

Kaprizov is arguably a top 5 player in the league with 13 goals and 14 assists this season. He is priced at 9.9k on FanDuel where you can grab him for 8k on DraftKings. A huge price discrepancy where he is just too low on DK for a player on a 9 game point streak.
