Pick Details

(59) NY Rangers vs. NY Islanders (60) 7:00 PM | Tue, Apr 20 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 9.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1053) - Final Total 7
Under 5.5 (-117) @ pinnacle
One of the most important injuries of this NHL season has been the torn ACL suffered by the Islanders’ captain Anders Lee back in mid March. He’s the captain, the #1 powerplay guy, and kind of the straw that stirs the drink on Long Island. Since his season-ending injury on March 16th, Islanders Unders are 9-5-1 and 7-0-1 in the Islanders’ last 8 overall. Since that injury, too, the Islanders have only scored 2.5 goals per game on average.
-The Under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 matchups head-to-head between these two and is 6-2 in the last 8 between them in Long Island. People look at the Rangers right now and think “Wow this offense is flying, they’re averaging 4 goals per game since the end of March”; BUT, the Islanders’ gameplan all season has been to slow things down against these faster teams. I think they’ll do that here tonight, and I think the Rangers will do the same coming off a shutout win the other night. In fact the Rangers have gone Under in 5 of their 6 games this year immediately following a shutout win. For a little bonus, I’m going to sprinkle this game to go to Overtime at +305.


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.
