NHL Best Bets: September 11
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets and top Monkey Knife Fight plays for today's slate.
Tampa Bay Lightning vs New York Islanders 8 PM
You can make the case that the Islanders outplayed the Lightning in Game Two but didn’t come away with the result. I look for the Islanders to take advantage of the last change tonight to get Mathew Barzal some better matchups, and this should help the Islanders get back into this series tonight.
Pick: Islanders +135
Monkey Knife Fight Play of the Night
Welcome back for another of our MKF NHL plays of the night. We have hit on two of our first three Monkey Knife Fight picks so far!
Putting Up Points 1.5x-3x
We are going with a different game type today. The objective of this game is to pick the players who will provide the most MKF points. So, getting players who get high volumes of shots and blocks with a chance of points is key. You also have to choose one player from each team. If you achieve your goal (2.5, 3.5 or 4.5), you win. My picks for today are:
Anders Lee NYI
Nikita Kucherov TB
Victor Hedman TB
Each of these players could easily provide five points in shots alone, with Lee and Kucherov being prime contenders for multi-point games if anyone is going to have one.
