Thursday night, the degens who tailed The Quick Pick and played the Insured option returned 1.5x on their investment. And after yet another cashable two out of three performance, the season’s successful pick rate charged upward to 77%. Friday night offers a lighter four-game slate, so you’ll still have time to do some last-second shopping. Let’s snag a plate of cookies and get back into the lab because we’re brewing up a Friday night banger. Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for December 22.
The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for December 22
Travis Konecny Higher Than 0.5 Assists (1.5x Odds)
The Philadelphia Flyers have won a remarkable seven out of their nine games in the month of December. It’s a bit of a surprise to see their names on the nice list, but when you’re hot, you’re hot.
A large part of the Flyers’ “December to Remember” is the play of their 26-year-old center Travis Konecny. He has tallied a stellar nine points in their nine games this month and has added five assists. Konecny must also enjoy picking for apples against tonight’s opponent, the Detroit Red Wings.
He has one assist against them this season and one assist in one game against them last season. For our first NHL Underdog entry, we’re taking Travis Konecny Higher Than 0.5 Assists at a nice 1.5x price.
Nikolaj Ehlers Higher Than 0.5 Points
Watching the Winnipeg Jets play, I can’t help but think to myself, now there goes a solid hockey team. Danish-born winger Nikolaj Ehlers is having a wonderful 2023, registering 11 goals and 14 assists to date. Friday night will be a tough test as they welcome the Boston Bruins onto their home ice.
But guys like Ehlers have been absolutely buzzing, and he sports a four-game point streak heading into the contest. During that streak, he tallied a monster four goals and five assists. So, we want an Ehlers point here for Christmas.
Only a Nikolaj Ehlers point will do. Let’s continue singing the song and take Nikolaj Ehlers to go Higher Than 0.5 Points against the Bruins.
Nick Suzuki Higher Than 0.5 Assists
Say what you will about the Montreal Canadiens, but they always give their best effort for coach Martin St. Louis. Suzuki is no stranger to the assist on the box score, as he is now up to 19 this season.
Coming into Friday, Nick Suzuki rides a four-game assist streak, so it makes this entry look like a layup. Given Suzuki’s recent form and his overall affinity for lending a helping hand, we’ll trust him to get us home.
Let’s cash this banger, so go ahead and take Nick Suzuki Higher Than 0.5 Assists against the Chicago Blackhawks.
