Daily NHL Picks and FANDUEL Rankings

I will be doing some NHL picks for all of you, both for betting, and on Fanduel.

Last night was a decent night all around, going 1-1 in bets, making us 63-47-2 on the year. In FanDuel, I was able to easily cash in Double Ups, but missed on GPPs. Still, I profited on the night. On to tonight!


Wild (+110) vs. Avalanche

The Avs have been awful of late after a strong start to the season. Their lack of depth is really shooting them in the foot. They have one star studded line and not much after that. Also, their goalies have not lived up to expectations as of late. I am taking the Wild in this one.


Blues (-125) vs. Ducks

The Ducks have been struggling to say the least, and they really have at home. In their last 5 home games, they do not have a single win. The Blues have been playing pretty decent hockey during the same time, so I expect them to win this game.


Predators vs. Golden Knights (-130)

The Knights are a great home team, and I do not expect anything less from them tonight in this tough game against the Preds. This is a possible playoff preview tonight, and I think the Knights will show that they aren't just a fluke playoff team.


FanDuel

Goalies

For Goalies make sure that you keep an eye on if they are starting or not before lock. If they are not pivot to one of my other goalies, or their backup.

Fleury (9100)

Dubnyk (8800)

Price (8600)

Binnington (7200)


Forwards

Toronto First Line

Matthews-Marner-Marleau

It looks like the Leafs are shaking up the top line a bit and replacing Tavares with Matthews. Keep an eye out to see if this changes. I still see this line doing well either way against a struggling Caps team.


Montreal Second Line

Domi-Tatar-Lehkonen

This line is going against Arizona, who is on a back to back, and they have their backup goalie in Pickard starting. I think this line can take full advantage of the opportunity.


Vegas First Line

Karlsson-Marchessault-Pirri

I like this line tonight at home because Vegas plays significantly better at home. Also, Pirri just finds the back of the net and I have a feeling he will again tonight.


Defensemen 

Studs

Carlson (6700
