Pick
CAR (-125) @ sportsinteraction

I like the price we get on the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 1 of their best-of-five Qualifying Series round against the New York Rangers. 

The Rangers went 4-0 vs. the Hurricanes in the regular season, but while they have proven themselves capable of scoring goals, they struggle big time on the defensive end of the ice conceding 3.14 gpg on the season. 

In a matchup like this where you don't know where the teams stand following the long hiatus, I'm going with the better blueliners and stronger defensive fundamentals. 

Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 postseason games as an underdog. Hurricanes are 17-5 in their last 22 postseason games as a favorite.

8* play on Carolina Hurricanes.

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.
