Today's NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, Nov. 5

Center: John Tavares, Maple Leafs vs. Kings. The Leafs opened with the highest implied goal total of the slate as -250 home favorites in a game with an over/under of 6.5 goals. Tavares should return to the lineup after practicing yesterday. His line generally sees opposing top lines in home games, which normally means his line draws tougher matchups. But tonight they're going to get Anze Kopitar's line which has an average of four goals allowed per 60 at 5v5 along with Drew Doughty's pair, and Doughty is having a brutal start to the season.

Wing: Anders Lee, Islanders vs. Senators. Lee is an option for Isles exposure on DK where most of their top six is priced way too aggressively. He plays on the top line and on the PP unit, though New York splits its power play units fairly evenly.

Wing: Brady Tkachuk, Senators @ Islanders. The Isles have the third best save percentage in the league, which makes them not the best matchup for opposing skaters. However, their defense is well below average as they allow the third most shot attempts and scoring chances per game. Tkachuk and Anthony Duclair are the wingers on the top line and both play on the top PP unit. Jean-Gabriel Pageau is the center of that line, though he could be left out of a potential Ottawa stack since he does not play on the power play.

Defenseman: Erik Karlsson, Sharks vs. Blackhawks. Karlsson's pair plays the most with Logan Couture's line at even strength, and he is the D-man that plays with that line on the top PP unit. He is priced significantly better on DK than FD.

Defenseman: Shea Theodore, Golden Knights @ Blue Jackets. Theodore is the D-man to stack with the Paul Stastny line as he plays with them on the power play, and Nate Schmidt is the D-man who plays on the job with the Karlsson line.

Goalie: Jordan Binnington, Blues @ Canucks. Binnington is noticeably underpriced on DK, where he could be a cheap option in GPPs. He should see more shots than usual against a Vancouver team that ranks seventh in shots on goal per game. The Blues are only a slight dog on the road.
