    There's some very nice money to be had in Daily Hockey betting these days!
    I think a lot of the "football" crowd are throwing some token bucks in the hockey pools just for giggles.


    Two things going for you:
    1) There's not a lot of "wise" money in there yet, and
    2) The entry quantity is still small enough that you can still win a pool with some smart obscure picks rather than a full set of "extreme" picks

    I usually only enter the $0.25, $1 and $3 contests, I was doing lots of double ups but wasn't happy only making 80 cents for every dollar lol.
    A night like tonight I won't enter too many lineups, there are just too many combinations that will be entered, some guys will enter 30-40 lineups in the same contest meaning I need to be PERFECT to place. Last night was great, basically picked some sure-point guys like Kane/Toews and then went with the risk guys on Toronto.

    I hope no one sees my updates as bragging, that's not the intent lol - I deposited $100 before the season started and I have withdrawn $1,650 so far.

    Seguin was 49.2% drafted, Benn was 50.6% , both finished with 6 points.

    My Lineup.

    Kadri (15.3% Drafted) - 4.0

    Seabrook (31.2% Drafted) - 5.5
    Reimer (3.6% Drafted) - 10.6
    Toffoli (29.9% Drafted) - 1.0
    Total Points: 55.10

    In: $3
    Out: $825
    I call bullshit. Why would you draft Reimer against the highest scoring team in the league?
    Head to Head League: 1 point for G, 1 point for A. 2 for Goalie win, 3 for SO.
    Start 6 guys every week. 3 O, 2 D and 1G. No substitutions once they are in (before the first game starts on Monday).
    Protect 3 players every year in keeper.
    10 rounds of drafting
    F: Ovechkin, H. Sedin, Nash, Cammalleri, Neal, Tarasenko,
    D: Boychuk, Weber, Niskanen, MDZ, Sekera,
    G: Gibson, Halak, Kuemper

    Sorry you feel that way!
    Here is a screenshot of my lineup with my placing to the left and then a second screenshot showing the winnings from that contest as well as others.

    I think the reason I drafted TML players on a night like that is very easy to understand.

    Thanks man!
    Tonight is a tricky night, I usually prefer smaller scheduled nights but having a tough time.
    I think some people may jump on the Toronto ship since Reimer is so cheap and played incredibly last game.
    Not sure who wins in ANY of the games tonight, (not a night for pro-line that's for sure lol).

    According to early FanDuel ownership percentages, Tyler Seguin will be the highest owned player tonight. I've posted complete early ownership percentages here: http://www.direfantasy.com/daily-fan...ntages-friday/ Mike Condon was the highest owned goalie at 13.2%

    Very cool idea, but how do you limit yourself to just one lineup! LOL I find it hard to stick with 3 or 4! I know I'm kind of defeating the purpose by doing so many, but it's so hard to choose just one.

    YTD -$9.00

    Today $3.00 sniper 1 entry

    C-Nelson
    C- Sedin
    W- Okposo
    W- Sedin
    W- Tarasenko
    D- Shattenkirk
    D- Edler
    U- Kruger
    G- Greiss

    Wasnt really sure what to do with that last $2500 Utility. If I can get a point or 2 I am happy.

    Really wanted to key in on the Van & StL PP. They have both had succes of late, and in Vancouvers case against the Blackhawks specifically. Not to mention the expected ownership for the Sedins/Edler should be lower than Kane Panarin etc...

    Finished up yesterday with a 34.4. Henrik and Kruger kept me from a strong cash. Still managed $8.00 on my $3.00 wager. Had toyed with the idea of Rasmussen as a Punt, which would have been a nice boost. Regardless a successful day. Ill be back later with my thoughts on tonights slate.

    Cheers.
