CAL (150) @ williamhill
 
I'm going to take a shot here, as I made this line closer to +130. Calgary is facing their old goaltender tonight, as he was traded to TOR yesterday. As a backup there, I think players got quite a bit of shooting practice against him to see his tendencies. Situationally, Toronto is in a tough spot here on a back-to-back, with this game sandwiched between games against rival Montreal and division-contender Winnipeg.

 -Toronto is just 3-2 on back end of b2b's this year but two of those came against these Flames in Calgary and one came against Ottawa. The Leafs' numbers are good in their last 10, but Calgary is creeping up into the top-15 L10 in their xGF% numbers and they're in the first of a road trip here off a big win 3 nights ago. The magic of Jack Campbell came to an end last night for Toronto after breaking the NHL record for most wins to start a career with a team, so this is a bit of a letdown spot back home, where they're just 4-4 L8 games. I don't think Calgary should be favored here, but I do think there's some value on this one.

 

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.
