Good luck to everyone on the props tonight, let's win some cheddar!
NHL Underdog Fantasy Top Picks November 14
Sam Bennett, Florida Panthers - HIGHER than 0.5 Points
The Panthers offense has really struggled this season and missing Sam Bennett was a big reason for the poor play along with Brandon Montour and Ekblad. But he is back now centering the 2nd line and what a spot he is in tonight against the leagues worst in the San Jose Sharks. Bennett has no points on the season and I think that changes tonight as the Panthers should score 4+ goals against a team that allows 4.4 per game and 38.33 shots.
Jakub Vrana, St. Louis Blues - HIGHER than 2.0 Shots on Goal
Here's a play that has remained the same basically all season as Vrana's shots line hasn't changed from 2 at all! This is despite him going higher than the number in 8 of 11 games thus far and in 5 of the last 6 games. He should continue the trend tonight too as the Lightning aren't the great defensive team they used to be and allow 33.07 shots on goal per game, the 6th highest average in the NHL. Look for Vrana to continue getting his tonight even if the Blues are frauds.
Elias Lindholm, Calgary Flames - HIGHER than 2.5 Shots On Goal
The Flames might be falling apart right now but at least they get a favorable matchup for their offense tonight against the Montreal Canadiens. Lindholm is the top line center for the Flames as it stands and he is on the ice over 20 minutes per game, which means he has the oppurtunity every game to contribute and when it comes to shots on net he is. Over the past 5 games he has gone higher than 2.5 shots in 4 of 5 and has totaled 18 shots during that time. The matchup against the Habs is a good one tonight as I said, they are allowing 34.2 shots per game, the 4th most in the NHL so fire up the Flames and Lindholm tonight.
