Unfortunately, last night’s two-goal scorer home run swing turned out to be a whiff. The good news is that the one-game Monday slate is now a two-game Tuesday slate. And with no time like the present, it feels like Tuesday has a banger in it.
Looking at these two matchups, there are some premium spots to pounce on. So let’s get back to basics and apply that winning touch we’ve had over the last couple of weeks. Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for January 30.

The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for January 30
Robert Thomas Higher Than 0.5 Assists
The Blues have started games well in their last two outings and tonight they should again against the Blue Jackets. Not only that, but they skate into Tuesday night on a five-game winning streak. 24-year-old centerman Robert Thomas has now tallied an assist in each of his last five games.
And I love Thomas to snag an apple tonight against a team conceding assists at a near 2:1 rate. Our first NHL Underdog entry on Tuesday night is Robert Thomas Higher Than 0.5 Assists against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Yegor Chinakhov Higher Than 2.5 Shots
The Russian winger is skating into Tuesday’s matchup against the Blues with a three-game point streak. And in those three games he has eclipsed 2.5 shots in two out of the three. Rewind the clock back to December and take note that Chinakhov tallied a three-point night against these same Blues.
The winger is averaging over two shots on goal per game this season, and the Blues have conceded over 1500 shots on goal in 48 games. Someone call Lil’ Jon because we’re doing shots, shots, shots on this Blue Jackets winger! Go ahead and take Yegor Chinakhov Higher Than 2.5 Shots on Tuesday night.
Jordan Eberle Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Kraken are just two points off the Wild Card pace with a little over 30 games left to play. Veteran winger Jordan Eberle has been on a heater of late, tallying 10 points in his last eight games. Tuesday night, he and Seattle will head to San Jose for a meeting against the abysmal Sharks.
Back in November, Eberle tallied three shots on goal and an assist against San Jose on home ice. We’re leaning on the veterans’ hot hand against a terrible team to snag us a point and cash our banger. Punch the Higher Than 0.5 Points for Jordan Eberle in San Jose tonight.
