Cappers Analysis:

 

Ben Burns: **MUST PLAY** EARLY 10* NHL MAIN EVENT! (VEGAS/COLORADO)

First place is on the line and both teams appear hungry to get it. Both are capable of being extremely stingy and I expect goals to be hard to come by. While the Knights have seen some higher scores, the Avs' last two games had scores of 2-1 and 4-0. A closer look shows that the Vegas games would have been lower-scoring if Vegas didn't score seven third period goals to rally. That won't happen today. Note that the Knights remain without their top scorer Max Pacioretty, who has 32 goals, 66 points. Expect a relatively low-scoring affair.

Jazz Ray: **EARLY NHL TOTAL

Avalanche: 7-2-1, averaging 2.8 goals, while giving up 2.3 goals. Golden Knights: 8-2-0, averaging 3.6 goals, while giving up 2.7 goals per game. Both teams will be tightening things up. Colorad has also only allowed a single goal through their first two games. TAKE THE UNDER

Will Rogers: 10* STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS GAME 1 TOTAL (UNLOAD QUICKLY!)

The set-up: These teams met three times in the regular season and two of their three games went "under" the number. Each has played two games so far in the bubble and Las Vegas has seen both go "over," while Colorado has seen both go "under."

The pick: Both starting goaltenders are loaded with experience and talent and I believe they'll "steal the show."

Las Vegas: Marc-Andre Fleury - playoffs - 1-0, 4.00 GAA, .765 SV% (season - 27-16-5, 2.77 GAA, .905 SV% ) or Robin Lehner - playoffs - 1-0, 3.02 GAA, .893 SV% (season - 19-10-5, 2.89 GAA, .920 SV%)

Colorado: Philipp Grubauer - playoffs - 1-0, 1.01 GAA, .969 SV% (season - 18-12-4, 2.63 GAA, .916 SV%) or Pavel Francouz - playoffs - 1-0, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 SV% (season - 21-7-4, 2.41 GAA, .923 SV%)

 

 

Best of luck!

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
