Welcome to the Saturday Slapshot, where I’ll go through the top NHL DFS Goalies and Stacks on DraftKings and Fanduel.
It’s Saturday and that means we have ourselves a nice slate to look forward to. After just a 2-game slate of NHL DFS tonight, we have 9 games in action tonight. We have some glaring matchups that we’ll be able to exploit. Colorado vs. the Ducks? Sign me up. Detroit vs. Montreal? Sign me up there as well. We also have some other really nice matchups to look forward to.
Let’s dig in and make some money!
Adin Hill and his Vegas Golden Knights should be able to take full advantage of this matchup tonight. Over the last 2 weeks, the Capitals have scored just 2.67 goals per game. It’s an aging and anemic offense that I’ll target with a goalie who has been playing really well. Over his last 5 games between the pipes, Hill has a .929 save % and is giving up just a hair over 2 goals per game. His numbers are by far the best of any goalie expected to be between the pipes tonight.
At $8.2k, he’ll make a fine addition to your Cash Game lineups tonight. Should Logan Thompson get the nod, I like him just as much at the same price as Hill. Lock and load either of these netminders tonight.
Both goalies that I like tonight are a little more than I like to spend on my GPP lineups, but in all honesty, they’re really the goalies that are playing the best right now and getting the best matchups. I’m willing to spend up a bit more on goalie this evening and I’ll spend down on my D. The Flyers offense has gone ice-cold over the last couple of weeks. They’re scoring just 2.29 goals per game during that stretch.
Add in Jarry who has been playing lights out, and we have ourselves a goalie that should do well this evening. Over his last 8 games, Jarry has an amazing .928 save %, allowing just 2.38 goals per game. He’s done this saving a little more than 30 shots on per game. Love this spot for him.
Oh, what a matchup this is for the Avalanche tonight. The Ducks have been just awful on defense of late. Over the last 2 weeks, the Ducks have given up over 4.5 goals per game. That’s a stretch of 6 games that have seen them go 0-6. They should be 0-7 after tonight with a matchup vs. an Avalanche team that is 5-1-1 over their last 7. They’ve scored 3.86 goals per game over those 7 games. Now anything can happen in the game of hockey, but this has blowout written all over it!
I’m siding with this top unit for Colorado tonight. Although they’ve been mostly quiet of late, it hasn’t been for the lack of trying. Over the last 3 games, this unit has an SATF of 44. Only a couple of lines in the sport have a higher number than that. All though shot attempts should lead to some goals tonight against a poor defensive team in the Ducks. The star of this unit is obviously MacKinnon.
But playing both Nichuskin and Rantanen makes this line full. Nichuskin actually leads the way on this line with 3 goals over the last 5 games. He’s also the cheapest at $6.9k on DK. Make sure he’s a part of your Avalanche stack. Going with MacKinnon, Nichuskin, and Makar is also a way to get 3 Avalanche into a stack tonight.
If Antti Raanta makes the start for Carolina tonight, I’m all over Buffalo. Over his last 3 games, Raanta has been dreadful. He’s sporting a save % under .800 which is just horrendous. He also has let in 4.72 goals per game. This is essentially picking on a pitcher like Madison Bumgartner. He’s someone that we need to attack any chance we get. I plan on doing that tonight with the top line for Buffalo.
This line has been pretty good over the last 3 games. They’ve combined for 2 goals and a SATF of 42. If more of those shots can get on the net tonight, they should score at least a pair of goals. It’s also a much more affordable line than other successful lines. Tuck is the most expensive at $6.3k on DK. I’ll look to pair Tuck with Mittelstatdt tonight.
Over his last 5 games, MIttelstadt has combined for 6 points and comes in at $4.3k tonight. He’s a great value play who should be in the middle of scoring if this line produces the way I think they will tonight. Skinner is also very much in play with this unit as he leads the way with 21 shots on goal over the last 5.
Caroline 1 and 2 vs. Buffalo
Detroit 1 and 2 vs. Montreal
Ottawa 1 and 2 vs. Seattle
St. Louis 1 vs. Arizona
Jake Walman $5.3k (not a great value, but he should be priced higher)
Brayden McNabb $4.4k
Cam York $3.6k
Colton Parayko $4.2k
We have a solid slate tonight. I didn’t mention them in my top stack, but the Bruins are in a great spots tonight and should score a ton of goals vs. poor defensive team in Toronto.
