Friday is finally here and I’m ready to get spicy with some NHL picks. 5 game slate on tap tonight that looks to have some pretty decent ownership so let’s get down to it.
These are based on ownership, projections and upside so always take that into account.
The Avs and Flames are going to draw a ton of ownership as the only two teams with Implied Team Totals (ITT) over 4 goals tonight so I’ll slide right down to the third highest ITT with the Jets. This is a smash spot for a squad that has won 6 of their last nine against some pretty good teams. The Jets have scored 4 or more goals in 6 of their 12 games in the month of March while the Blue Jackets have allowed 4 or more in 8 of 11 since the start of the month.
Players to build around: Scheifele, Wheeler
A game stack is very much in the picture for large field tournaments tonight. Give me all the goals in this one.
Players to build around: Roslovic, Bemstrom
For Single Entry or smaller field lineups Winnipeg/Colorado is my build of choice. The Avs get the Flyers, the Flames get the Coyotes…. Flip a coin but my lean is WPG/COL/Markstrom for the aforementioned tournament types.
Players to build around: Makar, MacKinnon
