3/26 NHLMain Slate of Games – Beginning 5 p.m. ET
*All odds and player pricing below have been obtained from DraftKings and are accurate as of the time of writing*
Boston Bruins (-105) at Carolina Hurricanes (-115) – 6 Projected Goal Total
Vancouver Canucks (-170) at Chicago Blackhawks (+145) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total
Toronto Maple Leafs (-170) at Nashville Predators (+145) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total
St. Louis Blues (+170) at Los Angeles Kings (-200) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total
3/26 NHL Favorite Popular Line
Los Angeles One – “Anze Kopitar ($6,300), Adrian Kempe ($6,200), Quinton Byfield ($3,400)”
The King’s top line has put up some stunning peripheral numbers as of late. L.A. is the biggest favorite of the night, coming in at -200 hosting the Blues. The total is set for 6.5 and it seems like a great spot for this line to keep rolling. Currently, they are tied for first among NHL lines in goals scored and are first in SATF “130” over the last ten games.
10-Day Sample Size – SATF “accounts for all shots including blocked and missed shots”
3/26 NHL Favorite Contrarian Line
Vancouver Two – “J.T. Miller ($6,700), Brock Boeser ($4,800), Phil Di Giuseppe ($3,100)”
The Canucks are in a good spot on this slate as -170 favorites against Chicago. The top line for Vancouver should be more popular. For that reason, it makes all that much more sense to pivot to the second line instead. As you can see from the graphic above, they are tenth in the NHL in SATF over the last ten games.
Defenseman and Goalie
Tyson Barrie – Nashville – $4,700 – Still the biggest beneficiary of Roman Josi’s absence at a relatively low price.
Kevin Lankinen – Nashville – $7,300 – Decent numbers on the year, cheap, and should face sufficient shot volume. Lankinen is worth a shot here.
