Friends, Brothers, and fellow degens, the NHL returns to action on Wednesday night, and that means The Quick Pick is back. It’s my sincere hope that everyone enjoyed their holiday and spent quality time with loved ones. But, if the holiday took a large chunk from your wallet, luckily, there are 14 games tonight to help you re-load. Prior to the holiday we had cashed a 9x banger, so let’s cook up another spicy NHL Underdog entry tonight! Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for December 27.
The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for December 27
Tim Stutzle Higher Than 0.5 Assists
The Ottawa Senators desperately needed the holiday break, having lost six of their last seven games. However, 21-year-old German left winger Tim Stutzle went into the holiday with a five-game point streak. Stutzle has five assists in his last five games, and on Wednesday night against Toronto, there are apples in the orchard.
Fanning the flames on this stat fire further, Timmy has tallied four assists in just two games against Toronto this season. So let’s nab Tim Stutzle here to go Higher Than 0.5 Assists against the Leafs on Wednesday night!
Tyler Seguin Higher Than 0.5 Points
It seems like every time I look up, I see the Dallas Stars with a lead or a W in the win column. A lot of that is due to veteran center Tyler Seguin, who has 10 goals and 13 assists in 2023. Coming into Wednesday night’s matchup against St. Louis, Seguin has assists in four of his last six games.
One of those assists even came earlier in December against this same Blues team. Let’s trust the gritty veteran to get our second NHL Underdog pick into the point barn in this spot. Go ahead and take Tyler Seguin to go Higher Than 0.5 Points against the St. Louis Blues.
Mikko Rantanen Higher Than 0.5 Assists
The Quick Pick was on holiday like the rest of the NHL, but its return brings along the same strategy. Avalanche winger Mikko Rantanen has 17 goals and 25 assists and is on pace for nearly 100 points this season. Wednesday night, he should have an opportunity to add even more against the Coyotes. In two games against Arizona this season, Rantanen has two assists.
He also went into the holiday with assists in four of his last seven games. We’re going back to the old reliable Avalanche buzzsaw and leaning on Mr. Rantanen. Let’s press the Higher Than 0.5 Assists for Mikko Rantanen and cash this 6x banger!
