4 game slate tonight. Lock is at 5 tonight, not 7. So don’t forget to finalize your lineups before 5! Let’s dig in.

Right off the bat we see a few teams well out in front of the others. And these are teams that feature stars the average player knows, which means they will see ownership.

Starting with Tampa Bay, who finds themselves in a smash spot against a Devils team on the 2nd night of a back to back and potentially having to start Domingue again (yes, TB on the 2nd night of a B2B as well, but they are a drastically better team). Dom stood on his head last night and limited an explosive Caps offense to 2 goals. I don’t see that happening here, especially considering the fatigue factor for not just Dom, but the entire team. I am concentrating my exposure on the top 6 of Tampa Bay with Steven Stamkos as well. Mikhail Sergachev can also be considered for value.

After Tampa Bay, we get Toronto and Florida. Toronto is all about the top 6 + the two stud defenders in Tyson Barrie and Morgan Rielly. Mitch Marner is one of only 2 “A+” plays on today’s slate. And for Florida, I always love the top line at home. They run away with our line production chart, which is the total points scored by each line + defensive pairs taking in to account home/away splits. Florida 1 + the top defender pair has 105 points with the next closes line having 72. Jonathan Huberdeau is our 2nd “A+” play on today’s Report Card. Don’t forget guys like Mike Hoffman and Keith Yandle who finish up the top PP unit. Noel Acciari is back on a heater as well with 4 goals over his last 5 games.

Let’s take a look at a few price discrepancy plays. Jason Spezza, Brian Boyle, Steven Stamkos and Mitchell Marner all find themselves at least 1k cheaper on Draftkings than Fanduel and all are on team projected 3 or more goals and on power play units.

GPP low owned stacks- Buffalo PP1, Pittsburgh PP1, Arizona PP1

Good luck!
