PICK: bet365 @ 1.5 CHI (-180)

DATE: August 1, 2020 - 3:00 PM



EXPERT: Ben Burns

EVALUATION: Win (600) - Final Score CHI 6 at EDM 4


I'm playing CHICAGO on the puck-line (+1.5 goals) Yes, we have to pay a premium to get it. However, the value of getting an extra +1.5 goals in a playoff game can't be understated. The Oilers have a serious weapon in Connor McDavid. However, the Hawks have been here before and are not going to be easy to beat. Captain Toews is still a great leader and has three Cups to his credit. The Oilers are going to be feeling more pressure than the Hawks and winning is going to be tough enough, let alone winning by multiple goals. I expect the opening game to come down to the wire and am grabbing the extra +1.5 goals.
