NHL DEC 29 Early
First off I will say any games not played at normal start times like 7pm or later should be cautious anything can happen and will happen.
Anyway lets have fun
Wild @ Jets
The Wild have been free falling hard. Dumba is gone they just lost to an awful Chicago with a goaltenders duel that gave Boudreau Jake Allen flashbacks. I like to think this will be a close game but Dubnyk has been prone to just forgot how to hockey and that scares me off every playing him in a game like this.
Crazy stat of the game last H2H in Minnesota the Jets blew a 2-0 lead giving up 4 goals in the 3rd period.
Wild line to target
Zucker Staal Granlund 17.7 DK
This line just straight gets so many chances I am pretty worried they will be matched against the Scheifele line which really hurts the match up but hard to ignore Staal lines dominant numbers of CF/60 72 HDCF/60 19 which is pretty insane.
Jet line to target
Connor Little Laine 14.8 DK
I really like Connor and I really really like Laine as the main weapon on the Jets PP I won’t fault you if you want to pivot off Little i’m not the biggest fan of him. This line likes to play at a higher pace than average and Maurice like them to get easier match ups. At a cheap line price that could potentially break the slate with a Laine hatty its worth the gamble.
Knights @ Kings
Do I ever hate Willie D he has cost me a lot of money not knowing coach and overplaying plugs like Clifford and Thompson. I will try not let that affect my biased. Anyways Kings on a nice 4 game win streak taking down some solid teams in the process including Vegas. I’m expecting Vegas to take this game down honestly.
Crazy stat of the game Kopitar has been averaging 22:44 mins a night and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon
Knights line to target
Marchessault Karlsson Smith 15.3 DK
This line pissed me off a bunch last year but there is no denying there skills this year on the road they have HDCF/60 64 not as crazy HDCF/60 8 but who needs that when you have Wild Bill on your line. The lines price is still super cheap against an LA team that can just not show up on some days.
Kings line to target
None I don’t like them the only upside is Kopitar for the minute he plays but this isn’t a match up I like at all for them.
Sharks @ Oilers
On the one hand you got the best player in the world and in the other the Sharks for some reason broke up the Couture line which would be the perfect line to match up against him. The honeymoon seems to be finally over as the Oilers look to be the same 1 player team who Defence look even worst with no Klefbom. Will see what happens this seems to be a tougher matchup than VAN but Mcdavid always seems to show up when you least expect it.
Crazy stat of the game Mcdavid and Draisaitl combined for 6 points the last time these 2 teams played
Sharks line to target
Hertl Couture Meier 18.1 DK
Yes I know Radil is suppose to be there but lets be honest the experiment isn’t going to last for long best to take guys that will actually play top6 minutes. One of the better lines in the NHL they play at a high pace on the road as well should be eventually matched against EDM1 they have CF/60 65 HDCF/60 9
Oilers line to target
Mcdavid Draisaitl Rattie? 16 DK
I don’t think I need to post any numbers to show how good Mcdavid is day in and day out you can’t go wrong at this price for a line stack especially on home ice.
Top lines I like in order
Value lines I like in order
Bet365 bet of the slate
Almost got there with Barzal last night lets hope this one hits
Hertl to score two or more 21/1
Thanks for reading
