Happy New Year to all of our loyal Quick Pick readers, tailers and NHL Underdog degens! The only people who enjoyed the NHL Winter Classic on New Year’s Day also probably slept with a hockey puck. That being said, our final entry in 2023 went two for three, so Insured option players returned 1x profit. That means we ended 2023 on a five-day Insured play cashing streak and up roughly 7x profit! Looking ahead to Tuesday night’s 13-game NHL slate, let’s keep things as hot as a Carolina Reaper in 2024. Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for January 2.
The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for January 2
Nazem Kadri Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Calgary Flames finished off 2023, sitting five points off the pace for a wildcard spot in the Western Conference. Tuesday night, they’ll begin 2024 on the road in Minnesota, and we’re keying in on veteran centerman Nazem Kadri. To date, Kadri has tallied 10 goals and 16 assists across 36 games.
He also ended 2023 on a mini two-game point streak and with four points in his last five. With one point in two games against Minnesota already, Tuesday night is primed for Kadri to start 2024 off properly. Our first NHL Underdog entry of the new year is Nazem Kadri Higher Than 0.5 Points against the Minnesota Wild.
Jason Robertson Higher Than 0.5 Assists
The Dallas Stars put together an incredible 22-9-4 record in 2023 and began their 2024 on Tuesday night against Montreal. 24-year-old winger Jason Robertson is having an outstanding season, with 11 goals and 25 assists in 35 games. In his last five games, Jason has tallied a whopping seven assists.
Robertson also enjoys Tuesday’s competition because last season, he dropped three assists in two games against Montreal. So let’s look to the helping hand of Mr. Roboto early here in the new year. For our second NHL Underdog entry, go ahead and press that Higher Than 0.5 Assists button on Jason Robertson.
J.T. Miller Higher Than 0.5 Assists
Man, oh, man. With a 23-10-3 record, the Vancouver Canucks certainly exceeded the expectations in 2023. Tuesday night, their 2024 begins with a home matchup against the Ottawa Senators. The team has plenty of contributors, but none more prolific than 15 goals and 33 assists man, J.T. Miller.
On pace for over 100 points this season, tonight we’ll look for Miller to provide a nice juicy apple. With five assists in his last five, Miller should feast on a team conceding 59 opposition assists in Power Plays. Let’s take J.T. Miller at Higher Than 0.5 Assists and cash a sixth straight banger for up to 6x profit!
