The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for December 21

Morgan Rielly Higher Than 0.5 Points

There are no better games to attend than a Leafs Sabres matchup and Thursday night it will be in Buffalo. Loyal readers are fully aware of my life-long struggles as a Sabres fan. That’s why we’re taking Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly with our first NHL Underdog entry.

Coming into this game, Rielly is on a two-game point streak. Throughout his eight games played in December, he has tallied a respectable six points.

Rielly has also been putting tons of pucks on net, averaging over 3 shots on goal per game in December. Our first present under the NHL Underdog tree is Morgan Rielly to go Higher Than 0.5 Points against the Sabres.

Josh Norris Higher Than 0.5 Points

Our second NHL Underdog pick on Thursday night is Ottawa Senators centerman Josh Norris. The 24 year old American is now up to 10 goals and seven assists on the year. Coming into Thursday night’s matchup against the Colorado Avalanche, Norris is on a three-game point streak.

Not just points either, but a three game goal scoring streak. That brings him up to five goals in December, and tonight, he’s going to find the box score against Colorado.

It doesn’t have to be wrapped, Josh; a point in a nice gift bag will do. Let’s take Josh Norris to go Higher Than 0.5 Points in Colorado on Thursday night.

Noah Hanifin Higher Than 0.5 Assists (1.5x Odds)

Unintentionally, our three picks tonight all play for teams located in Canada. The Calgary Flames haven’t exactly been setting the Yule log on fire in December, but they have won two straight.

26-year-old American defenseman Noah Hanifin is sitting on a total of five goals and 12 assists in 2023. He is riding a two-game point streak, and he’s also tallied six assists in nine games this month.

There’s a little extra spice in this glass of eggnog, with a 1.5x odds on Hanifin’s bounty Thursday night. So we’ll take a sip of what Hanifin is serving and take him to go Higher Than 0.5 assists. And that will leave a perfectly gift-wrapped 9x banger under our NHL Underdog tree!
