The Slapshot – Nov 19th

Saturday night NHL DFS picks for a pretty big slate.

TOP SPOTS…

LEAFS

The Sabres started the season good on defense but have quickly gone downhill and while Tage Thompson is great on offense he’s also not been great at helping to stop other teams centers as the Buffalo top lines defensively aren’t getting it done.  So look for both AM34 and Tavares to have good games.  While Matthews is expensive, he is back with Nylander so give me some Ace & Gary on Saturday night.

AM34, Nylander

BRUINS

Boston was a team I thought would explode on Thursday and didn’t, but another night for Bergeron-Marchand-Pastrnak together against another bad defense and we’re going to go back to them again tonight.

Bergeron, Pastrnak, Marchand, McAvoy

BLUE JACKETS

After a couple games out west Detroit heads into Columbus and should be tired tonight.  Good spot for Columbus to have a clean get right game.  Johnny Gaudreau is a must own today and there’s a lot of good value around him including the Blue Jackets defensemen.

Jenner, Gaudreau, Bernstrom

I would classify these three teams as contrarian spots which have high upside.

Tampa – Point/Kuch
