NHL DFS: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy hockey picks for October 13

The 2018-19 NHL season rolls on with a nine-game slate on Saturday evening beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET. The daily Fantasy sports sites FanDuel and DraftKings are offering multiple tournaments such as the $35,000 Saturday NHL Breakaway on FanDuel and the $51,000 Top Shelf on DraftKings. With plenty of injuries and storylines to sort through for this large Saturday night slate, be sure to check out the top NHL DFS picks from Mike McClure. 

McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He's also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NHL DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They're a must-see for any NHL DFS player.

Earlier this week, McClure recommended Flyers winger Jakub Voracek on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result? Voracek went off on Wednesday with two goals and three assists -- returning nearly 60 points and over 8x value for owners. 

For Saturday's main slate, McClure is all over Penguins wing Patric Hornqvist at $6,300 on FanDuel and $6,100 on DraftKings. Hornqvist has just one point thus far in the 2018-19 season, but has recorded 12 shots on net. He'll have a great chance to breakthrough on Saturday evening at Montreal.

Another pick he's all over: Predators defenseman Roman Josi at $5,400 on FanDuel and $5,600 on DraftKings. Josi is coming off an impressive performance against the Jets, one of the league's best teams, when he scored a goal and notched an assist. 

He's seeing around 25 minutes of ice time per game, and the Predators scored four goals in their first matchup against the Islanders this season. Look for plenty of chances for production for Josi this evening against New York. 

McClure is also targeting a value pick that has big upside on Saturday, but comes at a very affordable price. This pick could be the difference in cashing or going home with nothing on Saturday.
