VAN (102) @ pinnacle

This is an 8* play on the Vancouver Canucks.

The Wild won Game 1 by a score of 3-0, but I like the Canucks chances of tying the series with a win in Game 2. The biggest advantage for Vancouver in this series is their goaltending, but in Game 1 Alex Stalock stopped all 28 shots he faced, and Jakub Markstrom let in a pair of bad goals. I count on Markstrom to be better, and his teammates making life difficult for Stalock. The majority of the time the team with better goaltending and better special teams wins the series, so I still give the edge to the Canucks.

Take VAN.

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.
