PHI (116) @ pinnacle

Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #17 Sunday 8* Philadelphia Flyers Money Line (+) @ Boston Bruins @ 3 ET - The Bruins Tuukka Rask says he is fully recovered from a broken finger. However, the Boston goalie certainly did not look good in their exhibition game against the Blue Jackets leading into this one. That was the only bad news from the game for Bruins fans as Brad Marchand also went out with a lower body injury and is expected to miss this game. This one is part of the round robin series for seeding 1 through 4 for the upcoming playoffs. The Flyers are extra hungry as the #4 seed and are very welcoming of the fantastic opportunity to move up to the #1 seed with a good performance in this round robin event. The other two games will be against the Capitals and Lightning. Philly took 2 out of 3 regular season match-ups from the Bruins and enter this match-up as the healthier team. Also, the Flyers adjusted so well to their new head coach and new systems this season and were "feeling it" prior to the shutdown of the sports world due to the pandemic. That said, I look for Philadelphia to pick up right where they left off prior to the shutdown as the players have shown a complete "buy in" to the new systems this season and that makes them a dangerous dog in this spot. The value is clearly with the healthier team here as an underdog and with Carter Hart between the pipes. The young netminder showed a knack for stepping up in big games this season and I expect the same thing here. 8* PHILADELPHIA

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.
