Pick
NAS (120) @ caesars
There are a lot of meaningless games going on this week in the NHL, with the playoff brackets being essentially set in stone, but I think this game means a lot to the Nashville Predators outside of just the playoffs. Back in March, the Predators were 11-17, and statistically they had a 2% chance of making the postseason. They’re 19-7 since then, and this is their playoff preview game with the Carolina Hurricanes for the first round. 
 
But above all of that, goalie Pekka Rinne, who has been with the team for over 15 years, is probably playing the final home game of his career in Nashville tonight. He was drafted by Nashville in the 8th round of the draft in 2004, and they don’t even have 8 rounds in the draft anymore! He holds the franchise records for every major goalie category, and he is the fan favorite there, but he’s retiring after this year. He’s kind of like the Udonis Haslem to Heat fans out there — he isn’t that good anymore, but he’s a franchise guy that will be aiming for a big send-off. The Predators need this momentum going into the postseason far more than the Hurricanes do, and I think they will get it.

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.
