This is an 8* on BOSTON

So the top four teams in each conference will be engaging in round robin style play, similar to a “Group Stage” in the World Cup, to determine the order of seeding (1-4) in the Round of 16. The Bruins had the most points in the league (100) when play stopped in March and what’s crazy is that they were 0-7 in shootouts, so they probably should have even more. We like them in this first game against Philadelphia. The Flyers were a hot team when lockdown hit. From January 8th on, they were tied with the Bruins for the best record in the league. But goalie Carter Hart is new to the playoffs. Boston’s Tuukka Rask had the best goals against average in the league at 2.12. The Flyers are unproven and we’re skeptical if they can regain the form of the two months that preceded lockdown. It was a shorter time frame of dominance compared to Boston’s season-long dominance. Remember that it was the Bruins that ended the Flyers’ win streak on March 10th with a 2-0 victory. 8* on BOSTON

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.
