There are 14 games on Saturday with 11 of those games starting at 7:00 p.m. ET or later.
Jonathan Huberdeau (FLA) – W - $7,600 FanDuel, $7,400 DraftKings, $26 Yahoo
Huberdeau has been incredibly consistent lately. He’s on a three-game point streak and has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last 10 contests. He has 10 goals and 30 points in 22 contests in 2019-20.
Logan Couture (SJS) – C - $7,000 FanDuel, $6,100 DraftKings, $22 Yahoo
Logan Couture is heading into this contest on a five-game point streak. He’s scored two goals and nine points over that span, which brings him up to four goals and 23 points in 23 contests this season.
Jamie Benn (DAL) – W - $6,800 FanDuel, $5,500 DraftKings, $18 Yahoo
This has been a pretty bad campaign so far for Benn. He scored just a goal and six points in his first 19 games. Lately though he’s been turning things around. He has four goals and seven points in his last four contests. This seems like a good time to give him a shot.
Mathew Barzal (NYI) – C - $6,700 FanDuel, $6,300 DraftKings, $24 Yahoo
Barzal is coming off a three-point game against the Penguins on Thursday. He’s been red hot lately with three goals and nine points in six games.
Rickard Rakell (ANA) – W - $6,000 FanDuel, $5,300 DraftKings, $17 Yahoo
Rakell is on a four-game point streak and has contributed at least a point in six of his last seven contests. He’s been hot-and-cold and he’s definitely worth gambling on during his hot streak.
Derick Brassard (NYI) - $5,800 FanDuel, $4,300 DraftKings, $18 Yahoo
Brassard was limited to just one assist in his first eight games, but since then he’s been an amazing bet. He has six goals and 15 points in his last 12 contests.
