Pick Details

(69) Montreal vs. Calgary (70) 9:00 PM | Fri, Apr 23 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 6
Over 5.5 (-105) @ williamhill

This is a 10* FRIDAY NIGHT TOP COMMUNITY TOTAL on the OVER Canadiens/Flames.

Montreal had seen the total go under in six straight before its 4-3 win at Edmonton last time out. That also broke a two-game slide for the Habs, who are now 4-6 in their last ten.

Both teams have ground to make up in the playoff race, so I expect this competitive nature to translate into a higher-scoring shootout here.

Calgary's seen the total go UNDER in five straight now, and off back-to-back losses and also playing with revenge here after falling 2-1 to the Habs in these teams most recent matchup against each other, everything point to the Flames pushing the pace, instead of sitting back and waiting for Montreal to make the first mistake.

Finally, note that the Flames have seen the total go OVER the number in 14 of their last 21 in trying ot revenge a loss vs. an opponent in which they were held to one or less goals in.

This number is low, the play is the OVER.

Good luck, NP


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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
