The Primer – DFS NHL Edition – Saturday, December 14th

The Primer – DFS NHL Edition for Saturday, December 14th

Games on the Main Slate: 9

Games with Projected 6.5 goal totals: TOR/EDM, WSH/TB, 

Favourites that are -165 or greater: MTL, PIT, ARI, STL

Where to Expect Chalk

  • Montreal should garner a lot of interest tonight from an ownership standpoint as they are on home ice as large favourites against the lowly Wings.  Look for a mix of MTL1/MTL2 along with Weber and Petry on the back-end, price in net to all be popular stacking options.
  • With the price point of ARI1 and ARIPP1, I expect them to be popular as they are large home favourites against the Devils.  You can stack here with a high spend stack elsewhere.
  • I expect McDavid and company to be popular in a game against Toronto with an over/under of 6.5 goals.  McDavid, RNH and Klefbom are who I expect to be the most popular Oilers from an ownership standpoint.

Some Edges to Attack Tonight…

  • I like an over-weight position on MTL in this match-up tonight.  I think they’ll light the lamp early and often against Detroit, especially MTL2 and MTL PP2.
  • I like the spot for TB PP1, playing at home tonight against the Caps in what should be a high scoring, run and gun affair.
  • Pittsburgh’s top PP unit is in a good spot tonight, playing on home ice against the Kings are large favourites.  They are a little banged up, but this helps bring down the price point required to roster key cogs in the Penguins attack tonight.
  • I’ll be over-weight exposure to ARI1, J.C

Some Places/Players I’ll be Fading

  • I’ll be eliminating two games from my builds, both with projected totals of 5.5 goals: PHI/MIN and CHI/STL.
  • I love to stack BOS1 a lot tonight, but outside of getting a piece of the line for cash games, I like a large-field GPP Fade of them tonight from a game theory standpoint.  I prefer some other stacks on the board tonight.

Best of luck for those playing today and here’s to hoping it’s a good week for you in your NHL DFS action!
