NHL Betting Picks

It’s the Sunday Funday version of the NHL Picks for PrizePicks.  We have a really nice slate of NHL hockey with 7 games on tap. We’re on a nice roll as we went 4 for 4 yesterday.

Let’s dig in and see if we can make some money.   

NHL Picks

Carter Hart – 3.5 Goals – Over

Carter Hart has had an extremely up and down season.  Mostly down though.  If we take a look at this recent play, it’s been pretty bad.  He’s given up at least 4 goals in 5 of his last 6 games.  That’s pretty bad!  Tonight he gets a tough matchup vs. a Nashville team scoring more than 4 goals per game.  My only concern is here that Hart gets pulled early for giving up too many goals, too quickly! 

Karel Vejmelka – 3.5 Goals – Over

There was a stretch earlier in the year when Vejmelka got called up to the NHL where he was saving just about everything.  Those days are long gone!  He’s now given up at least 3 goals in 5 straight games, with the last 2 being over 4 in each.  The matchup tonight vs. the Jets isn’t a good one as they’re scoring over 4 goals per game during the month of March.  Look for the Jets to get to Vejmelka early and often.

Mika Zibenajad – .5 Assists – Over

The Rangers are jockeying for playoff position at this point in the year.  Much of that is thanks to the great play of Mika Zibanejad.  Over his last 3 games, he has 5 assists.  Tonight, the Rangers get to take on a Sabres team giving up about 3 goals per game over the last month.  The Rangers have a projected goal total of 3.75 tonight.  If they do get to near that 4 number, Zibenajad will be a big reason why.  He gets at least 1 assist tonight and over the .5 PrizePicks gave us.

Jake Guentzel – .5 Assists – Over

Another team with a great matchup on paper tonight is the Penguins.  Detroit has been atrocious over the last couple of months as they’re giving up more than 4 goals per game.  With Guentzel playing alongside Crosby on both the top line and power-play unit, he stands a great chance to get an assist tonight.  I’m going with the Over on this prop from PrizePIcks.

Whether it’s for PrizePicks or DFS, make sure you’re reading all of our great NHL content.

Good luck and hope to see some green bars come Sunday night!

After several weeks of small Saturday night slates, the NHL scheduling gods have blessed us with an 8 game slate on DraftKings and FanDuel.  My goal today will be to walk you through a lineup build that will get you to the top of the leaderboards.  

Let’s dig in and see if we can make some money.   

Goaltending

Jake Oettinger ($7.5K DK/$7.7k FD) vs. New York Rangers – I don’t often proactively use goalies against my New York Rangers, but I’m going to make an exception tonight.  Oettinger tonight is in a price point where he’s really hard to pass up.  While not flashy, he’s been extremely reliable as he’s had at least 10 DK points or more in 11 of his last 13 games.  He’s even had some games over 25 points. 

The Rangers have really struggled to put the goal in the net over the last month, averaging just 2.45 goals per game over that stretch.  With them on the road again tonight, look for them to continue to struggle scoring goals.  Oettinger isn’t a sexy pick by any means, but he’s not going to kill you tonight.    

Cal Petersen ($8.1k DK/$7.6k FD) vs. San Jose Sharks – The Kings should turn the goalie crease over to Cal Petersen tonight after Quick somehow let up 4 goals vs. a Sharks team that’s scoring just 2 goals per game over the past month.  I wish Petersen was under the $8k range tonight on DK (love the price on FD) as I’m not sure I can stomach paying that much for him.  That said, the match up is great.  And if we look at recent stats, he provides more upside than Oettinger as he’s had over 20 DK points in back to back games.

Outside of those 2 goalies, I have little interest in anyone else.  While both guys present some risk, they should both have a decent floor and won’t break the bank. 

Stacks 

Calgary 1 (Lindholm, Gaudreau, Tkachuk) vs. Detroit

If you’ve been following the NHL recently, you know that Detroit is playing some really poor defensive hockey.  Over the last month, they have a goals against average of 5.20.  The only thing I can compare that to in sports is the Rockies playing every game in Coors over a 30 day stretch and having Kyle Freeland on the mound for all.  It’s bad.  Carolina is probably licking their chops after giving up on Nedeljkovic as he’s been extremely disappointing this season. 

Over his last 2 games, he’s given up 12 goals.  That’s bad.  I want to preface this with saying that both top lines for Calgary are in play tonight.  My lean right now is line 1, even though they are pricey.  Lindholm and Gaudreau are both killing it of late, with a combined 11 goals and 18 points over their last 5.  They’ve also combined for 41 scoring chances.  Both guys are core plays for me tonight.  You can add Tkachuk to this stack too if you want, I just don’t think he’s going to be necessary. 

New Jersey 1 (Hughes, Sharangovich, Mercer) vs. Anaheim

While not as bad as Detroit over the last month in terms of GAA, the Ducks are pretty close as they’re giving up more than 4.5 goals per game since mid-February.  After starting out the season strongly, Gibson has crashed hard back down to earth.  For most of the year, he outperformed against his advanced metrics.  The Gibson we are seeing now, is the real Gibson.  Over the last month, he hasn’t had a single game with less than 3 goals.  As their everyday goalie, that’s a lot of games with 3 or more goals against. 

Jersey’s offense starts with Hughes.  The third-year center already has a career high 18 goals and 26 assists.  This is by far his best season at the NHL level and he’s still fairly priced at just $6.7k on DK.  I’m pairing him with Sharangovich tonight as the 2 of them have really clicked and Sharangovich is just $3.8k.  Over their last 5 games, the 2 have combined for 44 scoring chances.  Look for the 2 of them to have a big night against a bad team. 

Montreal 2 (Dauphin, Hoffman, Gallagher) vs. Seattle

I don’t need to sell you too much on playing guys against Seattle.  They’ve struggled mightily in their inaugural season.  We attack them when we can.  Tonight, we can.  Montreal 1 is absolutely in play tonight.  Caufield and Suzuki are playing great hockey right now as they’ve combined for 12 points over their last 5 games.  We just need some savings tonight in a productive environment and Montreal 2 is going to give us that. 

I’m looking to Brendan Gallagher tonight for some positive regression.  Over his last 5 contests he has 15 high danger chances and just 1 goal to show for it.  His xGF over that stretch is 3.23.  He should be finding the back of the net and there’s a very good chance tonight he does.  The combination of Hoffman and Gallagher will cost us just $8.5k on DK tonight and after spending a ton of money on Calgary and Jersey, we need the extra money.  There is also a path to getting both Suzuki and Caufield in your squads tonight by going cheap on both D and I may end up doing that too in a lineup.  

Other stacks (TB 1 and 2, Edm 1 and 2, Bos 1, Ari, Chi 1)

Top Defenseman

  • Ryan McDonagh – $4.1k on DK – 16 blocked shots and 12 shots on goal over last 5.
  • Jakob Chychrun – 5 goals over his last 5 to go with 21 shots
  • Sean Durzi – 23 shots and 13 blocks over his last 5, still somewhat of a value
  • Dyson Mayo – $3.1k on DK.  4 points over his last 5 plus 10 blocked shots
  • Nick Holden – $3k on DK.  Averaging close to 4 shots + blocks per game over last 5
  • Jacob Middleton – $2.9k on DK.  Dude is a blocked shot machine with 12 over his last 3 games.

Vegas

Love the Canadiens at -110 tonight as favorites against Seattle.  They’re on home ice and are playing “better.” 

Summary

Tonight’s looking like a fun slate.  We have several teams that should put up big numbers with Calgary, Jersey, and even Montreal.  I didn’t write up them because I expect them to be popular, but Tampa Bay is also in a great spot to smash tonight vs. an Oilers team that has been challenged defensively this season. 

Don’t forget to use our optimizer when setting lineups.

Good luck and hope to see you in the green!

Tonight we have a small, but solid-looking 4 game slate of NHL hockey.  We should see some sloppy hockey tonight in a couple of spots as all but Pittsburgh, Vancouver, and Washington are on the last legs of a back-to-back.  Below you’ll find some of my favorite picks for tonight.

Let’s dig in and see if we can make some money.   

NHL Picks

Kaapo Kahkonen Over 2.5 Goals Allowed

You’re going to notice a trend here, but I expect some offense in this Wild/Blue Jackets.  Both teams have all but abandoned playing defense.  Let’s start w/ the Wild.  Over the last month, the Wild are giving up 4.43 goals per game. 

No team in the NHL has given up more power-play goals over the last month than the Wild.  Kahkonen has been especially bad as he’s given up at least 3 goals in 4 of his 5 and 14 goals in his last 3.  With the state of the Wild’s play right now, I just don’t see how the Blue Jackets score less than 3 goals tonight. 

Elvis Merzlikins Over 3.5 Goals Allowed

While the Blue Jackets haven’t been as bad as the Wild on the defensive side of things over the last month, they also haven’t been good.  Elvis in particular has been bad.  Over his 3 games, Elvis has given up 13 goals.  Just not what you want to see out of your goalie. 

Although the Wild defense has been atrocious, their offense has been keeping them afloat.  Both of their top lines are always in play and between Boldy, Kaprizov, Fiala, and Zuc, they should put the puck in the back of the net quite a bit tonight.  Wild should tag Elvis tonight for at least 4, if not more.

Kevin Fiala Over .5 Assists

When you get to play next to the red hot Matt Boldy, you’re bound to get some helpers!  Last night Fiala had his fifth assist in his last 5 games and has 8 points over that stretch.  I said it above and I’ll say it again, I love the Wild to put some goals tonight and Fiala will be a big part of that. 

Most people gravitate to the top line of the Wild for scoring, but it’s actually been this second line that’s been extremely productive and Fiala has been a big part of it.  Love him for at least 1 apple tonight.

Tristan Jarry Over 27.5 Saves

Vegas has not been scoring goals this season.  Over the last month, they’re averaging just 2.18 goals per game.  That said, they are shooting the puck a ton as they have 35.55 shots per game over that same stretch.  With the Penguins giving up just a hair over 30 shots per game over the past month, I’m projecting Jarry at 31 saves tonight.  That’s going to take us over the 27.5 saves project that PrizePicks is giving us.
