Before you enter a daily fantasy hockey tournament for NHL action on Wednesday, February 28, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and is rolling through the season, already cashing multiple tournament and cash game rosters.
He has been able to do all that thanks to some spot-on picks.
On Tuesday, McClure locked in Sharks wing Joe Pavelski at $6,900 on FanDuel. The result: He exploded for three assists and a goal — returning a whopping 42.4 DFS points in the process.
Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a winning NHL DFS night.
Now McClure has exhaustively studied matchups, injuries, and projected lineups for Wednesday and locked in his optimal NHL DFS lineups. He’s sharing them over at SportsLine.
For Wednesday, McClure is all over St. Louis Blues wing Vladimir Tarasenko, who is $7,800 on FanDuel and $6,900 on DraftKings.
Tarasenko has six points in as many games and is coming off a two-goal performance against Minnesota that returned 33 points on FanDuel.
He gets a nice matchup against a Detroit squad that has a below average scoring defense, giving up 2.95 goals per contest. The Blues are desperately trying to stay afloat in the playoff race, so look for a big game from Tarasenko against the rebuilding Red Wings.
Roster Tarasenko at his affordable price and you’ll be able to stack him with teammate and goalie Carton Hutton, who is $8,600 on FanDuel and $8,200 on DraftKings.
Hutton’s price has fallen recently after a few duds, but he has a great chance for a bounce-back performance tonight against one of the worst scoring offenses in the NHL. Detroit averages just 2.66 goals per game and just shipped high-scoring forward Tomas Tatar to Las Vegas.
McClure is also targeting a high-scoring wing facing one of the worst defenses in the NHL. Based on his recent production and dream matchup, he’s in position to go off for 20, even 30 points on FanDuel and double-digits on DraftKings. Picks like these could be the difference between winning your cash games and tournaments or going home with nothing.
