    Since it’s a big slate and we’ve been filling with ease. Here’s a 30 man for today that must fill!

    NHL Today at 7PM EST – $1 entry – 1/30 spots filled *** https://deeplink.me/draftkings.com/contest/draftteam/69184327

  • Zieg30

    Liking VGK1, CAR1-OTT1/2, and NSH1 tonight!

  • sizzlebeans

    Tuesday Special structure
    25% to first. 632 of the 1000 paid spots (63%) are min cash at 1.5x entry. You build the same stacks as the rest of the top 10 but pick the wrong defensemen and you’re watching your winnings fluctuate from $20k to $300. Just a brutal structure. The top prize will attract plenty, and there are plenty of players out there that will max enter the 141 allowable entries. Going to be tough to win if you don’t max it out on a 12 game slate.

    I do like that they made the $33 a 3 max, and it has a much gentler slope from 1st to 10th.

  • Zieg30

    That $20 prize structure is atrocious.

    CAR1-OTT1/2,

    The “vegetarian” game stack is back!

    I like NSH1 and VGK1 too. How about riding the hot STL, and of course WPG. I will also stubbornly keep stacking TOR2 until I get rich or go broke.

  • hautalak

    I’m guessing it’s finally a “Boyle” game in NSH. He likes to play well against the Wings (just remembering but more than likely needs fact checking). I like WPG as well and might even go to the CBJ well after that Caps and all their goals last night.

  • rgreuli

    Feeling like a Nashville, Toronto, Vegas kinda day with Nilsson and Binnington as top two goalies.

  • hautalak

    Anybody having DK app trouble? I’ve been having to use the mobile site after early this morning. Really hard to decide what I want to play tonight. Nothing I can say I really “like” so resorted for 3 Wrist Shot entries (small field top heavy), $1 SE, $1 RG contest, and prolly a $1 triple up.

    I’m thinking that CHI/BOS game should be stackable but idk if I want to go there. Maybe some pieces from both?

  • Southie777

    Yeah, hate that $20 tourney payout structure, but I have to throw one iron in the fire and dare to dream! Hopefully, I’ll at least min cash and anything more than that is icing on the cake! Think I’ll mostly stick to the $4 Forecheck, $2K is also nothing to sneeze at and I love the 20 entry limit. Haven’t looked into the slate much yet.

    This is still my favorite contest DK offers.

    I just wish they’d offer it sometimes as the largest GPP of the night rather than always along with a bigger $20 or $40 contest.

    Let’s filler up! Much better odds of winning than the DK forum contests, people!

    Exactly! Don’t know why they can’t just consistently run it every day (or at least every Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday). A $20,000 $4 Forecheck seems very reasonable for every big slate. But they insist on playing games and focusing on the more expensive tourneys and then throwing out an $8K $3 Sniper to placate the masses. Leave my Forecheck alone, throw us peons a bone!

    +1. I would love some $4-$5 entry fee with 10k up top prize structure on Tuesday slates since it is usually the biggest. Unlikely to see this until the NBA All Star break.

    If LWL is correct, JT Miller is skating with Stamkos on L1 and PP1. Makes an intriguing one-off for only $3600.

      RG Overall Ranking

    I just verified, and on last Thursday, when there was a $10K to 1st, $200 to 7th contest, a few guys entered 150 lineups anyway. BDholla89, volpez7, DollarBillW, I_Slewfoot_U, Awesemo, tomjk321, Mirage88, bretned, suidmach and Testosterown all had 150. At $8 a lineup, it means $1.2K each!

    I really don’t understand how guys who (I guess) have advanced math/stats knowledge think it’s a good idea to max enter a contest like that!

    I hate when DK’s main contest has a terrible structure. Entering 10- lineups and calling it a day.

  • PhoFever

    OddsShark was way off last night, calling the under in the SJ and WSH game and whiffing on their two biggest predictions that LAK would win and that PHI would win big. I did find it interesting, however, that they predicted more than 3 goals by LAK and they nailed it.

    Tonight’s OddsShark tidbits: they are calling for 4+ goals from TOR and STL. They are also predicting road victories for CAR, CHI, PHI, NYI, WSH, and DAL, with CAR and PHI checking in as bigger favorites.

    Most perplexing predictions are NSH/DET going to OT, and VGK barely beating ARI with the over.

    Pasta out for two weeks after injuring his thumb after a non-hockey related fall. Yikes.

  • Southie777

    Pasta – thumb injury, out three weeks.

    Ooops, beat me to it.

  • LJR102788

    I like Minnesota 1 to grab a couple goals tonight, Parise and Grandlund playing well and Philly surrenders a lot of high danger chances. Their prices aren’t obnoxious on DK and they could go very under owned in a great spot.

    They were in the 1st build I made last night, so I agree with this. I’m on Minny tonight, too.

  • LJR102788

    Michael Dal Colle skating with Barzal/Bailey at 2700 on DK, cheap exposure to them playing against Buffalo tonight?

    Same.

    But that said, I have to at least have one lineup with white hot CHI1 duo. I can’t seem to scroll past either of them. Also looking at some STL chalk.
