Bardown Picks NHL 2/4/2021
Today I will go with a more traditional lineup build as I will be listing my favourite stacks of the night.
Expensive Stack: TOR1
Hyman-Matthews-Marner ($20,400 DraftKings / $21,100 FanDuel)
I am happy to see Hyman back up with Marner and Matthews you can sense the chemistry every shift. This line likes to play fast at 5v5 58:48 minutes together this line has a 60.2 CF/60 18.37 HDCF/60. They like to put pucks on net and love going to the dangerous areas. Tonight they face a Vancouver team that has put up in terms of advanced stats the worst defensive numbers in the league. I see the Matthews line taking full advantage of that tonight. So far this year Keefe has been putting the Matthews line against others team 1st lines EG: Mcdavid, Scheifele, Danault. This will be another test as I see them matching up against Boeser Horvat Miller line. Horvat is great but I can’t see that line containing Matthews.
Mid Price Stack: MTL1
Tatar-Danault-Gallagher ($15,900 DraftKings / $17,600 FanDuel)
This line has continued to show it dominance at 5v5 and that isn’t going to change against an awful Ottawa Senator team. The downfall of this line is the lack of PP opportunity which can scare people of them which makes me want them more. How many times did we see this line just come out of no where on a slate and win someone a GPP. We already know what we are getting with these 3 on the ice 69.9 CF/60 32 SC/60 14.2 HDCF/60 they take on the hardest match ups for Montreal and more time than not come out on top easy. Today I predict them matching mostly against the Norris line who don’t get me wrong Tkachuk and Norris have been amazing together but tonight they get a true test against MTL1.
Low Price Stack: STL2
Schwartz-Schenn-Kyrou ($15,300 DraftKings / $16,100 FanDuel)
At 5v5 81:16 minutes they have 67 CF/60 43 SC/60 16 HDCF/60 somewhat small sample size but those are great numbers. They draw against a Arizona team that haven’t been there usual low event hockey they pride themselves on. You get some PP upside with this line. I wouldn’t worry to much about match ups with this line as all of Arizona lines look pretty meh to me I can’t see them slowing down Kyrou tonight. I have them 100% tonight I will live or die through this line I hope it all works out.
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.
