Pick Details

(75) Toronto vs. Vancouver (76) 9:00 PM | Tue, Apr 20 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1110) - Final Score VAN 6 at TOR 3
-1.5 TOR (-111) @ pinnacle

I'm playing TORONTO on the puck-line (-1.5 goals) After getting hammered worse than any other team by Covid, the Canucks returned and scored the upset against the Leafs. Don't expect it to happen again. Many of the Canucks did indeed feel the virus more than other teams, perhaps the Brazil variant being to blame. They're still extremely short-handed and beating the top team in the division twice in a row like that is highly unlikely. Of course, thats why the Leafs are such heavy favorites on the moneyline. Still, we get them at a very fair price on the puck-line and I don't see this one being all that close. The Leafs, 13-3 their last 16 when playing with revenge, should jump all over their outmatched hosts right out of the gate. Expect the effects of all the off-time to catch up with the Canucks here, the Leafs bouncing back and winning by multiple goals. 


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.
