Well, degens, the NHL Underdog gods have been none too kind to start out our week here. But Wednesday night is a new opportunity, and there are three games on the NHL slate. We’re closing in on the All-Star Break, so let’s have a little fun in this spot. Why not cook up a big old banger to help us forget about the last two days? Put your chef hats on, and let’s get in the kitchen. Here are my three best NHL Underdog Fantasy Picks for January 31.
The Quick Pick: Daily NHL Underdog Fantasy Pick ’em Picks for January 31
Drake Batherson Higher Than 0.5 Points
The Ottawa Senators really aren’t much to look at these days, but they have a few younglings with promise. Drake Batherson is up to 17 goals and 21 assists this year, and he carries that into Detroit on Wednesday. He is also carrying a nice three-game point streak with him, and this spot looks ripe for the picking.
Batherson has also logged three points in three games against Detroit this season. Grab the hammer and smash Drake Batherson Higher Than 0.5 Points to start our NHL Underdog entry.
Drew Doughty Higher Than 0.5 Assists (1.25x Odds)
The LA Kings need the All-Star Break more than any other team in the league right now. Wednesday night, they’ll travel to Nashville in search of two points. Drew Doughty is having an average campaign at best but is in the midst of a three-game point streak.
And all three points have come by way of the assist, so at a 1.25x price tonight, it tastes juicy. Let’s lean on veteran defenseman Drew Doughty in Nashville on Wednesday. Press the Higher Than 0.5 Assists for Doughty at a spicy 1.25x price tag.
Troy Terry Higher Than 1.5 Points (1.75x Odds)
To quote a famous rant, “The Anaheim Ducks are who we thought they were.” However, 26-year-old winger Troy Terry is there to let ‘em off the hook. Tonight, the Ducks get the Sharks on their home ice, and we like Troy to have a game. In fact, Troy Terry has three multi-point games in his last five outings.
Surely, against the bottom-feeder Sharks, a fourth is coming, right? At a very spicy 1.75x price, let’s throw a dart at it. Go ahead and press Troy Terry Higher Than 1.5 Points at home versus the Sharks. Let’s cash this big old banger!
