NHL DFS Picks April 6th, 2019

NHL is back and we are going to be looking at some DFS options for tonight’s slate. We have a 10-game slate, so there are plenty of options across the board and we should see plenty of scoring.

Also, always, always check to make sure the goalie you pick is confirmed as the starter. Nothing worse than making a lineup, and the goalie not playing. There are plenty of good sources on twitter, and websites where you can get that information.

Regardless if I’m playing cash or GPPs, I always have some stacks going in my lineups. In hockey, most goals are scored with assists, so we want to target players who are either on the same line, or on the same power play unit, or both. So these stacks will include both forwards and defenders while making sure they see plenty of ice time together.

Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen, Victor Arvidsson

This is the first forward line and the first power-play unit for the Predators, who are at home and -245 favorites against the Blackhawks. Nashville is one of very few teams who have something to play for on the final day of the regular season. They have a chance to lock up the Central Division title with a win and it should be on the easier side of things tonight since the Blackhawks will have Cam Ward in net tonight since Corey Crawford is out with an injury. Cam Ward is simply just not a good goalie and has allowed three or more goals in five of his last six starts. The Predators need to win to pick up the points, they have an implied team total set at 3.71, and are facing off against a bad goalie. Simple as that.

Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Alex Kerfoot

The Avalanche are another team who actually have something to play for if the Stars are unable to win at home. Right now, Colorado sits just one point behind Dallas in the Wild Card spots and if the Stars aren’t able to win at home, then the Avs can jump them in the standings on the final day of the season. Colorado is up against the Sharks who have looked horrible in the past month and are allowing 3.43 goals per game in that span, which is the fifth worst on this massive slate. Not sure what went wrong with the Sharks, yes they didn’t have Erik Karlsson, but their team overall seemed to slip a bit. This top line and top power-play unit for the Avalanche are looking strong right now and you want to focus on getting MacKinnon into your lineups since he has seven points in his last six games.

Ben Bishop, Goalie, Dallas Stars

As mentioned above, the Stars do have something to play for tonight and up against the Wild who come in with an implied goal total sitting at 2.30 tonight, which is one of the lowest ones on the slate. Bishop is set to return for the Stars after missing about a week with an injury, but this should be a soft landing spot for him since the Wild come in scoring only 1.92 goals per game over the past month, which is not only horrible, but worst on this slate.
