DraftKings and FanDuel NHL Spotlight Stacks, Saturday 10/13

Jake Hari



NHL Betting picks for Blue Jackets vs Predators tonight with game preview, trends and best bets

The following Spotlight Stacks were selected by writer Jake Hari. For more analysis on the slate, check out the Projections page as well as Awesemo’s NHL Player Rankings and Stacks.

COL1 (Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen)

The top line for the Avalanche has a great matchup tonight against the Flames, and specifically, the Flames’ top line. COL1 has been one of the most dominant lines in the NHL on home ice going back to the start of last year, and the high-paced Calgary top line should bode well for them, as they’ve allowed 30.8 Scoring Chances Against per 60 minutes and 17.3 High-Danger Chances Against per 60 at even-strength this year. Since they’re at home, they’ll be able to avoid the Backlund line as much as possible, and top power-play duties up their value for GPPs even more.

NSH1 (Forsberg-Johansen-Arvidsson)

The Isles have done a better job at limiting High-Danger Chances to start off the season, but the Barzal line (which will be the likely match for NSH1) has allowed 6 High-Danger Chances in 3o minutes of ice time and have yet to see a line this well-constructed so far. The Johansen line has picked up where they left off last season, posting a 53.7 Corsi For Percentage over the first few games of the year, and this trio will all play on the power-play together with P.K. Subban and Craig Smith. The Isles have killed every power-play in 2018-19, but they ranked dead last in penalty-kill % (73.2%) in 2017-18, so this is a unit that they can certainly get to on the man-advantage.

MTL1 (Tatar-Danault-Gallagher)

With all the great option on this 9-game slate, this line will likely go overlooked despite being cheap and in a very good matchup. Based on the Canadiens’ first couple home games, there won’t be a hard-match here, but the Danault line should mostly see the Penguins’ top-6 at even-strength. Both the Crosby and Kessel lines have been leaky defensively, and Matt Murray being out with a concussion doesn’t hurt either. MTL1 has been surprisingly dominant at even-strength, posting a 72.3 Corsi For Percentage, so the shots and scoring chances could come in bunches against a Pittsburgh team that just allowed 66 even-strength shot attempts to the Golden Knights on Thursday
