NHL DFS Breakdown (2/3)

Hello everyone, I hope you won some money on that 4 game slate last night. Tonight is a much better slate with 11 games and some great matchups with some being on the 2nd of a B2B. Lock is at 7:00 PM ET/6:00 PM CT. This Saturday has been extremely busy so in this article for tonight I will just list my top plays, good plays, and value plays without a lot of details behind them but will include my projections. If you have any questions about the plays, please feel free to direct message me on twitter. I will include both Draftkings and FanDuel pricing for your convenience. Here are the 11 matchups tonight and their start times (Eastern Time):

PIT @ NJ 7:00pm
CLS @ NYI 7:00pm
STL @ BUF 7:00pm
TOR @ BOS 7:00pm
COL @ WPG 7:00pm
DET @ FLA 7:00pm
NYR @ NSH 8:00pm
MIN @ DAL 8:00pm
TB @ VAN 10:00pm
CHI @ CGY 10:00pm
ARI @ LA 10:30pm

This slate looks great tonight. There will plenty of good options for you to choose from. As many of you know that read my articles, I recommend making multiple lineups with different stacks throughout them and you may get one lineup that scores super high and one that doesn’t do so well. If you don’t have the bankroll to play multiple lineups, I suggest that you get some exposure from as many of the games that you think will be the highest scoring. My favorite matchups tonight are CLS@NJ, MIN@DAL, DET@FLA, and TB@VAN. At the end of the article, I will put down my favorite line stacks for the night. Now let’s move into the plays of the day!
