Bardown Picks NHL 1/28/2021
Hello and welcome to another nice big slate last time we had WPG2 and VGK help win some big money, as the rest of the 3/4th liner decided to put up points for the big teams on the slate. I barely min cashed so I won’t complain was a bit salty about Grzelcyk as I saw he took part in the pregame skate and Jack Edwards put him on the opening lineup card. My fault for not paying more attention so just be a lesson to the rest of you. In the end I was only going to play Dumba in his spot instead so I couldn’t be too mad.
Travis Zajac ($3,200 DraftKings / $3,300 FanDuel)
Zajac will always have a soft spot in my heart as he was one of the main pieces that helped me qualify for the FHWC anyways. On a slate like this you wouldn’t really look at a player like Zajac but with how many great players are on this slate he is the best salary saver to pick. You get 18min+, PP1, and empty net goal upside. Zajac so far this year has put up some dominant numbers 57% CF 60% XGF 55% HDCF. While being the Devils go to defensive guys. My guess is he shadows the Hayes line tonight who hasn’t really clicked so far this year.
Mikko Rantanen ($8,200 DraftKings / $7,900 FanDuel)
Colorado looked strong last game and that is without the Mackinnon line putting up every goal. I expect more of the same you will want to play Rantanen because he is the Trigger man on PP1. Not going to go too in depth about this play. The price is high but COL is at Home, SJ is bad, and their goalies are bad. If you have the cojones to fade this game I wish you the best of luck I will not.
Adam Fox ($6,400 DraftKings / $4,300 FanDuel)
Strictly a FanDuel play I have no idea why he hasn’t been priced up yet. He is PP1 plays a ton of minute and is against a Sabres team that I expect will trade chances tonight with the Rangers.
As usual they are always a crap shoot just pick whichever correlates best for your team. If you can’t correlate pick the biggest moneyline favourite(FD). Unless you are playing on DK then its even more of a crap shoot.
