Vegas Golden Knights (-190) at San Jose Sharks (+160) – 6.5 Projected Goal Total
The Penguins are knee-deep in the playoff race, looking to maintain an edge over the Florida Panthers. They have a good chance to add some room to breathe tonight hosting Nashville. Pittsburgh is a -190 home favorite and the total is set at 6.5. In terms of peripheral stats, as of late the Pen’s top line is killing it. They lead all NHL lines in SATF over the last ten games (131). They only have three goals for their efforts but if they keep things up, should be in line for positive regression.
10-Day Sample Size – SATF “accounts for all shots including blocked and missed shots”
3/30 NHL Favorite Contrarian Line
Seattle One – “Matthew Beniers ($4,900), Jordan Eberle ($5,000), Jared McCann ($5,300)”
I guess they probably won’t be that contrarian with Seattle a -315 favorite. That said they bring some salary relief to the lineup to help offset Pittsburgh one. With 11 games tonight, we don’t have to care too much about ownership. The Kraken’s top line is fifth among all NHL lines in SATF (113) over the last ten games. When compared to most of the other lines surrounding them in the metrics, they provide immense point per dollar value. I don’t mind just running a two-man stack with Beniers and McCann if preferred.
Defenseman and Goalie
Jake Sanderson – Ottawa – $4,800 – Thomas Chabot is out for at least two weeks. As a result, Sanderson will be filling his role in its entirety. The Senators are -155 home favorites here facing the lowly Flyers.
Linus Ullmark/Jeremy Swayman – Boston Bruins – $8,500/$8,300 – The Bruins are -435 favorites here. Ullmark has a 1.90 GAA and .937 save % and Swayman has a 2.21 GAA and .921 save %. Don’t overthink it.
3/30 NHL Best Bet
New York Rangers (+115) – DraftKings – 1 Unit – Let’s take the plus odds on the team playing the better hockey right now.
