Today is an extremely light NHL day. Only two games. Perfect day to comb over every possible line combination and get it right. As I’ve said before you have to be damn near perfect to hit big on a small slate. Rest easy, let DFS Cheat Sheets do it for you!
Ottawa @ Buffalo
St. Louis @ Calgary
Smaller the slate the more I play. I’ve learned not everyone thinks this same way. As stated it’s a very small round of games. As it stands now the Buffalo Sabers have the highest implied goal total at 3.4 vs. the Senators and their 2.7 implied goals.
Lets stack Buffalos first line with some exposure to their first power play unit!
Jack Eichel L1 & PP1
Sam Reinhardt L1 & PP1
Zemgus Girgensons L1
If you feel like going all in on the Sabers add these skaters who are also on the first power play.
Marcus Johansson L1 & PP1
Rasmus Dahlin (defense) L2 & PP1
Another line I think is sneaky and can be added at a low price is the Senators second line. Plus you get exposure to the first power play! The combined implied goal total for OTT @ BUF is 6. Stacking this game and staying away from the goaltenders is the way we should go tonight!
Vladislav Namestnikov L2 & PP1
Chris Tierney L2
Connor Brown L2 & PP1
The second line is dirt cheap and with Vlad and Brown playing on the first power play these three are a must for me tonight.
The Blues @ Flames game has me mystified. There is a 5.5 implied goal total and on a per team basis its split down the middle. Blues 2.7 goals and Flames at 2.8 goals. Once I started digging in the stats and numbers heavily favor the Blues. That’s the direction we should go tonight.
ST. LOUIS 2 & PP1
Ryan O’Reilly L2 & PP1
David Perron L2 & PP1
Zach Sanford L2
These three are my favorites if you’re going to stack the Blues. Add in these three skaters as part of a full STL power play one stack.
Jaden Schwartz L1 & PP1
Brayden Schenn L1 & PP1
Alex Pietrangelo (defense) L1 & PP1
As I mentioned earlier today is a tiny slate and I will be playing heavy! Do not be afraid to mix and match. If you see something I missed reach out! Lets talk about it! Here’s what my line looks like tonight. Just a reminder, this line is for fun. Play smart!
