12/1 DraftKings and FanDuel NHL DFS Hot Shot



Let’s get ready for a huge Thursday night hockey slate to kick off the month of December!

Aside from reading the article, don’t forget to check out our NHL DFS Projection Model which is available every morning.

12/1 NHL Main Slate of Games – Beginning 7 p.m. ET

*All odds and player pricing below have been obtained from DraftKings and are accurate as of the time of writing*

Colorado Avalanche (-200) at Buffalo Sabres (+170) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total

Nashville Predators (+180) at New Jersey Devils (-210)6 Projected Goal Total

Tampa Bay Lightning (-215) at Philadelphia Flyers (+185)6 Projected Goal Total

Vegas Golden Knights (+100) at Pittsburgh Penguins (-120) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total

Edmonton Oilers (+125) at Minnesota Wild (-145) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total

Carolina Hurricanes (-135) at St. Louis Blues (+115) – 5.5 Projected Goal Total

Anaheim Ducks (+245) at Dallas Stars (-295) – 6 Projected Goal Total

Montreal Canadiens (+240) at Calgary Flames (-285) – 6 Projected Goal Total

Washington Capitals (+105) at Seattle Kraken (-125) – 6 Projected Goal Total

Florida Panthers (-140) at Vancouver Canucks (+120) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total

Arizona Coyotes (+210) at Los Angeles Kings (-250) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total

Colorado One “Nathan McKinnon ($9,200), Mikko Rantanen ($8,500), Arturi Lehkonen ($6,400)

This line should not come as a huge surprise to most. Colorado One will be chalky as playing early as -200 favorites against the Sabres. After a slow start, they are also the NHL’s leading line in terms of SATF/Expected goals over their last ten games, registering 148 SATF.

After a decent start to the season, the Sabres have been falling hard with a 2-7-1 record over their last ten games. That’s tied for third worst in the NHL across that stretch. Furthermore, they have allowed an alarming 79 goals this season, the sixth-worst amount allowed in the NHL. Most of the other heavy favorites on this slate aside from the Avs are in six total games facing better goaltenders. Buffalo comes in on the second night of a back-to-back as well. In other words, it’s a good night to fire up the champs’ top unit.

12/1 NHL Favorite Contrarian Line

Los Angeles Two “Phillip Danault ($5,300), Trevor Moore ($5,100), Victor Arvidsson ($4,600)”

This line has made the list before and has been rather mediocre when previously listed. However, considering once again they are a top ten line in terms of peripheral stats, more production is bound to follow. They have 110 SATF over their last ten games “they are at the bottom of the graphic above”. However, they only have a paltry two goals to show for it. This game is a 6.5 total and considering the Kings are -250 home favorites, most of that production isn’t expected to come from the lowly Coyotes. The fact they provide salary savings is also a huge bonus on a slate where most of the lines you’d want to use are expensive. Let’s get some exposure to what could be a true late-night hammer!

Defensemen and Goalies “Covered in the 12/1 Goalies Article”


Jeff Petry – Pittsburgh $4,400 – With Kris Letang injured, Jeff Petry will be seeing extended minutes and a role on the top power-play unit. He might be a good source of some “Petry dishes” if you will. Given his price, there is some value to take in here at a position that I hate spending on. Shea Theodore is similarly positioned tonight with Alex Pietrangelo out. However, at $5,400 that would be the most I spend on a defender unless my build on whichever line was rather unique. Between the two I’ll take the $1,000 savings on Petry.

Ryan Graves – New Jersey – $3,400 – Cheap play with goal-scoring upside. If not spending up on both Petry and Theodore, I’d play at least one defenseman in the $3,000-$3,400 salary range.

12/1 NHL Best Bet

Florida Panthers/Vancouver Canucks – O 6.5 (-130) – DraftKings1 Unit – Classic book watching, this total trending down from the O/U 7 that it opened at.
