Before you set your Monday night NHL DFS lineups on DraftKings or FanDuel, you need to hear what Mike McClure has to say. McClure is a professional DFS player and predictive data engineer, specializing in player projections and advanced statistical analysis.
McClure has over $1 million in DFS winnings, and he's already cashed on multiple NHL tournament lineups this season.
On Saturday, McClure locked in Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri for $5,600 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings. The result: Kadri blasted six shots on net, scored a goal and notched an assist -- returning just under 30 DFS points on FanDuel.
For Monday, McClure is all over Maple Leafs defenseman Morgon Rielly, who is $4,500 on FanDuel and $5,000 on DraftKings. Since coming off the injured reserve on Feb. 3, he has nine shots on goal and a pair of points in his last four games. He scored 14.4 DFS points on FanDuel in his last outing, so looks for more big production this evening.
If you roster Rielly, you'll have plenty of salary cap room to add a huge star like Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews, who is $8,000 on FanDuel and $7,000 on DraftKings. He has a combined 11 shots and five points in his last three contests and will be asked to carry more of the load this evening in this battle of two of the highest scoring offenses in the league.
McClure is also targeting another player who recently went for over 70 points on FanDuel and very well could do it again tonight against one of the worst scoring defenses in the NHL. Picks like these could be the difference between winning your cash games and tournaments or going home with nothing....So what is the optimal NHL DFS tournament lineup for Monday?
