DraftKings and FanDuel NHL Stacks of the Day for 5/7

Jake Hari



Zach Brunner looks gives the best NHL betting picks and prediction today using Awesemo's OddsShopper tool, with Flyers vs. Penguins.

The Penguins and Predators have their backs against the wall tonight, which should make for some exciting hockey. Below are some stacks that I (Tommienation1) and Awesemo are looking at for our lineups. Awesemo will start with why he likes each stack, then I will follow up with some extra analysis.

PIT1: Simon-Crosby-Guentzel ($17,600 DK/$20,100 FD)

“The Penguins 3.5 implied total is the highest on the night and they were dominant at home 2 games ago.”

Back to Pittsburgh where the Penguins are in a must-win game and they will try to replicate what they did in Game-4 where they outchanced WSH at even-strength 21-14 (10-3 High Danger Chances). The Crosby line (“A” points grade) was a force in that game against the Ovechkin line, outshooting opponents 21-9 and outchancing them 13-4. We should see them hard-match Ovechkin, Kuznetsov, and Smith-Pelly once again, and I expect another dominant performance by this top line.

NSH1: Arvidsson-Johansen-Forsberg ($16,000 DK/$21,200 FD)

“The Predators’ top line is very cheap on the road in an elimination game and they should be put in every chance possible to succeed.”

This line (“B” points grade) combined for over 60 minutes of ice time in Game-5 as the Predators were trying to get back into the game. If this one stays close, we should expect similar ice time as they try to stave off elimination, so they are clearly underpriced on DraftKings especially. They should see most of their time against the Scheifele line, which has given what they’ve taken this series, allowing 34 Scoring Chances and 12 High-Danger Chances in the first 5 games.
