DFS NHL – The Daily Cycle – February 27th
February 27, 2018 | phil_beneteau89
In this segment I will take a look at four different sections; the Vegas lines, the top line stacks of the night, the top value plays of the night, and my top three goalie options.
(All Vegas lines are taken from Bodog Sports)
CAR at BOS (-180) – O/U – 5.5
NJD at PIT (-200) – O/U – 6.5
OTT at WAS (-175) – O/U – 6
TOR at FLA (-135) – O/U – 6
STL at MIN (-145) – O/U – 5
NAS at WPG (-125) – O/U – 5.5
CGY at DAL (-150) – O/U – 6
EDM at SJS (-145) – O/U – 5.5
LAK at VGK (-160) – O/U – 6
Top Line Stacks
WAS2+D – Evgeny Kuznetsov / T.J. Oshie / John Carlson
I believe it makes sense to strt at least oe of the Capitals top lines tonight. With that in mind, on such a large slate, pivoting off the Ovechkin line to Kuznetsov, Oshie, and Carlson, who also all play together on the first power play unit could be a viable option. Kuznetsov has rocked the Senators this season with a goal and five assists in their two meetings.
FLA1 – Evgeni Dadonov / Aleksander Barkov / Nick Bjugsted
Both Dadonov and Barkov also play on the top PP unit, while Bjugsted centers the second unit giving you expousre to both lines in a good matchup
SJS1 – Evander Kane / Joe Pavelski / Joonas Donskoi
At this point, both Pavelski and Donskoi remain on the top PP unit. It is unclear what the plan is for Kane of the PP, but I could see them sticking him on that top unit as well. He will see a dream matchup in his first game as a Shark as they host the Oilers.
Top Value Plays:
Forward: Anton Slepyshev (DK: 2.9K / FD: 3.6K)
Don’t sleep on Slepyshev. He is playing on the top line with McDavid and Lucic and has scored in back to back games.
Defense: Dmitry Orlov (DK: 3.6K / FD: 4K)
Makes alot of sense to get some sort of exposure tonight against the Senators and he offers top line D which means exposure to Alex Ovechkin’s line.
Top Three Goalies:
Philipp Grubauer (WAS) – (DK: 8.2K / FD: 8.0K)
Expected to get the win against the Senators at home tonight and looked good in relief of Holtby last night.
Martin Jones (SJS) – (DK: 8.2K / FD: 8.2K)
Ben Bishop (DAL) – (DK: 7.7K / FD: 8.8K)
His price tag is juicy on DraftKings and he will face the Flames at home tonight.
