Here are the model’s favorite plays by position (in no particular order). Sully picks are indicated by an “*”:
C: AM34* (cash lock), Zibby*, JGP, Dach, Dickinson, Grant*
W: Patty Kane, Kubalik, Bread Man, Nylander, Saad, Duclair, Patches, Toffoli, Grimaldi*, Gurianov*, Caggiula*, JVR*, Labanc, Perron
D: Pietrangelo, Tony D, Josi, Heiskanen, Chychrun, Severson*, MacDermid, Lauzon, Myers, Cernak*, Hammer*
Favorite stacks: TOR 1/2, CHI 1/2, OTT1, NYR1, STL1, NSH3, DAL2
TOR implied total a whopping 4.5 (on a 7 game total), followed by CGY 3.7, COL 3.6, NYR 3.5, and TB 3.4. A bit of reverse line movement on the Wild, Sharks, and surprisingly, the Leafs.
I’m surprised not to have many COL, TB, or CGY players popping in the model. Conversely I’m surprised to have so much CHI and STL popping despite 2.8 and 3.2 implied totals, respectively.
Guys I’m really interested for cash are AM34, Zibby, Kaner, Labanc, Grimaldi, Gurianov, Severson, Chychrun, and Tony D. Deep punts, if I can stomach them, are Fabbro (PP1?), Caggiula, Bear, Wood, and MacDermid.
That’s all for now, folks! Kept it short and simple. Special thanks to Sully for his contributions. Come join us in chat for more plays and hot takes!
