Game 6: Avalanche vs. Lightning Player Props & DFS Targets
Game 5: Lightning vs. Avalanche Player Props & DFS Targets
Nathan MacKinnon ($11.4k, $17.1k CPT)
- Over 4.5 shots (-154)
- Goal (+164) / First goal (+1300)
MacKinnon is a bit too expensive to fit into your DFS lineup, without taking at least two value players, but luckily there is some value in his Game 6 props. He’s had at least 5 SOG in 13 of 19 playoff games, including four of five games in the Stanley Cup Final. He’s had double-digit shot attempts in the last three games with 6, 8, and 6 shots on goal in those contests.
With the Avs on the brink of the Stanley Cup, MacKinnon will once again be shooting at will. His odds to score (+164) and to score the first goal (+1300) are hard to pass up as well.
Cale Makar ($10.4k, $15.6k CPT)
- Over 3.5 shots (+105)
- Over 1.5 points (+210)
Makar is still expensive, but being slightly cheaper than MacKinnon –– and more consistent with higher FPTS games –– makes me want to fit him into my lineup. In fact, he’ll likely be my captain.
Makar had at least 18.1 FPTS in the last four games, including 25+ in three of them. He picked up two points in those three games and had 4+ SOG in all four as well. In the playoffs, Makar has 4+ SOG in 12 of 19 games, including seven of his last 10.
Ondrej Palat ($7.4k, $11.1k CPT)
- Over 1.5 shots (-160) / Over 2.5 shots (+136)
- Goal (+220)
Palat kept up his pace with three shots on goal in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. He now has 2+ SOG in 15 of 22 playoff games, and 3+ in 10 of 22. There is still value in the Palat goalscorer market as well as he’s scored in 11 of 22 playoff games –– including 8 of his last 12. He has a goal in seven of 10 playoff games at Amalie Arena this season.
I’m playing these Palat props and will look to include him in my DFS showdown lineup.
Corey Perry ($5.6k, $8,4k CPT)
- Over 1.5 shots (-146) / Over 2.5 shots (+230)
- Power-play point (+220)
- Goal (+330)
Perry has at least 9.9 FPTS in each of the last three games with 2+ SOG in the last four. He’s recorded a power-play point in two of the last three games and there’s value at +220 with him in the middle of the Bolts’ man-advantage. Perry is also a sneaky option to score a goal at +330 given his grittiness in front of the net.
