The Quick Pick hasn’t skipped a beat after the holiday break, and Thursday night, we went two for three again. Loyal readers and tailers who used the Insured option last night returned a profitable 1.25x on their investment. That’s now two consecutive cashes using the Insured play on our NHL Underdog picks.
So let this be a lesson: ensuring your investments will always be a wise decision. Friday night offers a nine-game slate on the ice, and it smells like winning. Follow along below because three cashes in a row will be a winning streak. Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for December 29.

The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for December 29
Auston Matthews Higher Than 0.5 Assists
The Leafs have been fairly inconsistent in December, but star centerman Auston Matthews has been as cool as a cucumber. The kid has 28 goals and 14 assists in 2023, and Friday night, he’ll probably add more against the CBJ.
Heading into tonight, Matthews has tallied assists in consecutive games. And less than a week ago he peppered this same Columbus team with two goals and an assist. Friday night, we’re placing our trust in one of the biggest stars on the ice to pick us an apple. Go ahead and mash Auston Matthews to go Higher Than 0.5 Assists against the Blue Jackets.
Timo Meier Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Devils have a knack for leaving things late, needing overtime to win a couple of games this month. Timo Meier is having a brutal 2023 with just nine goals and six assists, but he’s turning things around lately. With a three-game point streak coming into Friday night, Meier may finally be heating up the ice cubes.
And if the Devils are going to keep rolling, Meier will need to chip in to help beat the Senators. Check your watches because it’s Timo Time in Ottawa tonight. We’re taking Timo Meier to go Higher Than 0.5 Points against the Senators.
Vince Dunn Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Seattle Kraken are something of an enigma here in 2023, but they’ve now won three straight games. Friday night, they welcome the surging Flyers into town for a nightcap to us East Coasters. Defenseman Vince Dunn has strung together a solid five-goal and 24-assist season effort to date.
He has also put together a two-game point streak and now has 10 points in December. So, just one point from Vince tonight, and our 6x banger will be a Dunn deal. Let’s press the Higher Than 0.5 Points button for Vince Dunn against the Flyers on Friday night.
